    just one. I couldn't figure out how it attached. I just "messed" with it until it finally snapped in. Still don't know how I did it.
    Thank you for your response.

There's a small plastic spring type clip that fits under the key. It has little nubs that stick out the side and fit into slots on the keypad base. The nubs break and your lucky if you find a replacement that stays in place long. You can get a new keypad for about 40 bucks on ebay and replace it in about 10 minutes.

There's a plastic trim strip across the top. pop one side with a small flat screw driver, remove, 2 screws at the top of the keypad and a ribbon cable to the motherboard. When removing the ribbon cable there's a small lip at the top of the connector, carefully lift that lip and the ribbon will pop out. Have fun

How do I get into safemode on my acer aspire desktop


1 Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time. 2 During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup." 3 Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears. If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2. 4 Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard. 5 Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection. The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

You have to make sure you put the hinge back together correctly if it popped off. Lay the hinge in place, then put the key on top if it, and give it a good solid press.

Acer needs to be reset


Hi,

When the Unit starts up, Keep the ALT button in on the keyboard whilst tapping the F10 key repeatedly. This hould pop up the Acer Recovery console which will allow you to reset the Unit back to its default O/S.

You will most likely loose all data on the Netbook, so dont do this if you dont want to loose any information!

My acer netbook isstuck in the safe mode restart


if you are running XP the simplest way to go about it would be to pop in an XP cd and repair repair the file system. the not so easy way to get your files back would be to get yourself a Linux Live CD and boot your computer into that and access your HDD, copy the files onto a USB key and key them there.

You can carefully take off the keys and pop them back on. Use alcohol to wipe up any stickiness.
