Can you please look underneath the key to determine if the plastic has been damaged/broken. If it is then you will need a new key, or possibly switch with another less used key, if you don't want to purchase a replacement.

One key on my acer 5535 not working the letter that comes after abc! will use # in place of that letter. nothing happens when press it an there #oesnt seem to be anything stuck un#er it. only stoppe#...

pop the key off using your fingernail, and underneath there should be a small rubber boot that actually makes the contact when the key is pressed. it's possible that it has moved (they're usually glued on) try and realign the boot and put the key back on. if it's not that, it's possible that the key simply does not work. if that's the case you'll have to replace the keyboard.

Letter "A on keyboard not working

It is possible that something might have been stuck between the key and the PCB. Try to pop out the Letter key and clean the inside area then re-seat the key. Hope this works for you.

I need to replace the keyboard on an Acer Aspire 3680 series laptop

Hi there.
Remove the laptop battery and the AC power supply, open the lid as far back as you can take it.
Get a small flat headed screwdriver, now, you have to take off the keyboard bezel, this is the strip of plastic above the keyboard with the power button on it, the best way to remove it is to start by the on/off button by gently prying the bezel up from the lid hinge, once you have one side out gently pull it up using your fingers, it will unclip and lift away.
Next you have to remove 2 screws from the top of the keyboard, these should be visible to you, once the screws are out carefully lift the keyboard up, you will see a ribbon cable that is connected to the motherboard, gently pull the tab up on the connector that the ribbon cable sits in and it should release it and you can now remove the keyboard and replace it.
To re-assemble just follow my direction in reverse.
Please post back with the results and for any additional advice if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I have some melted keys on my acer aspire 3500 notebook i would like to replace those keysn how would i do this? i tried to call acer customer service but i could not get through

Replacing keys on laptops is really a pain, and would require scraping a keyboard to get the keys....Anyways you can buy a keyboard for your laptop relatively cheap from Ebay. Between 10-24 dollars. I took the liberty to do the ebay search and have provided you a linke to many keyboards just for your laptop.
