Re: acer 5100

There is a strip of plastic above the keyboard you have to pull off to get at the screws for the keyboard.

I would remove any screws under the laptop that go into the strip above the keyboard and any screws that are under the keyboard.

Then carefully pry the strip above the keyboard up with your hands or use a small flathead screwdriver along the edge.

Hope this helps!

I'm afraid I've got a problem with the motherboard. Neither the internal keyboard, track pad or USB keyboard and USB mouse or working. Whe boting I cannot enter the setup mode via F2. Is it worthwhile...

I am sorry to be bearer of bad news, but you would be smarter to do 1 of 2 things here...

1) Return the laptop to ACER if you have a service warranty still...
2)Just buy a new one or a refurbished one (about $199.00) because with all the problems you said, to replace all those components would run over 5-750.00 plus labor.

Keyboard & mouse are dead

I just fixed this problem by doing the following:

Hard power-off (hold the power button until the laptop turns off)
Unplug the AC adaptor
Remove the battery
Plug in the AC adaptor
Hold ctrl and turn the power on. You should arrive at a black screen.
Hard power-off again, then turn the power on.

How to change or open Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook's keyboard

Keyboard is easy - just turn computer over, unscrew the screws that connect the keyboard to the laptop and then see if there are any screws on the keyboard itself that must be unscrewed. Pry the keyboard off with a small flathead screwdriver, unplug the ribbon and replace with new keyboard by re connecting the ribbon and then snapping it into place and of course replacing whatever screws you took out. Hard drive - you must first locate whereever it is on the bottom of the notebook, unscrew those screws, take it out and reconnect new one. REMEMBER to take out battery during this whole procedure and put a cloth over the LCD screen so you wont scratch it up.
