1. If you have the key retainer (image) you can find some good instructions on the webpage.
2. If you do not have the retainer you will have to buy either the key or the entire keyboard from ebay. As of Jan 1 there are no keys available for acer keyboards but the entire keyboard is available here and here.
I have a sensitive , Key and I removed the key to clean it, to replace the key if you put a knife blade under the right hand side of the scissor mechanism holding it up and then snap the key back on , I found the top goes on first easiest and the bottom will go when the knife is removed,PS I still have an over sensitive key, anybody got any ideas?

Unless I'm missing something, just put the key back where it belongs. Push down hard, and it'll snap back into its place. If this doesn't work, check the underside of the key. If you see broken plastic, you'll probably have to find a new key. Acer laptops seem to have a problem with keys coming out and breaking (just look at the number of times this question has been asked!)
I have the same problem on my lenovo laptop. Apparently it needs a new keyboard completely which is £70 dianogis charge, £212 labour charge plus parts plus vat as a keyboard is not covered by warranty!!!
there are ways to replace laptop keyboards but it is expensive. try going to a computer repair shop, they may have a broken laptop with the same keys as yours. you can also get a external usb keyboard.
hey This could be a little difficult to explain.. coz the white ring acts as a spring and putting it back on is not hard but difficult to explain.
See first of all on an acer laptop a key has 3 components the key the white thing (which holds the key in place) and a black soft thingy (which actually gets pressed wen u press a button and acts like a spring) first of all the white ring can be removed and refixed easily . Youll see 4 small hook like structures on the palce where key needs to be placed ... first place the white ring over there, the white ring has 2 things which come into one another. (try referring to the key where in the white ring is still in place). now if the black spring like thingy is removed from its place, place it in the center of the ring and put the key on, try moving the key a little, if the key and white ring are put correctly, this will produce a click like sound showing the key is locked by the white ring .. if the white ring is dismantled into 2 parts it could be a little tricky to put them back on.. in that case i guess ull have to check a fixed ring and try and replicate the same for this key
