Try loosing the screw the connects the keyboard to the machine using a screw driver.
You can locate that at the back of the laptop.
with the help of a flat screw driver and a little force, you should be able to remove it..
Please try and get back to me and let me know the results..

Good luck

Non system disc or disc error fix

Hi, do you have a floppy disk, cd or usb stick inserted in your computer? Try removing such items and reboot as it may be trying to read these before the hard drive.
Check the boot order, when you first turn on your computer, access the BIOS menu (may need to push Delete, or one of the function keys eg F2, F8, F12 etc).
Check the boot order to ensure the correct hard drive it listed. Try moving the hard drive to the first option and reboot.
If removing any cd, usb stick etc doesn't help, try removing the hard drive and see if you can access it from another computer. If you can't access it, your operating system nay be corrupt and you may need to reformat.

I am trying to reinstall windows xp prof but i keep getting the blue screen and the system keeps shutting down, i have tried a different hard drive but get the same error.

unplug all devices except the hard drive and 1 cd/dvd rom drive. disable the audio device and any other unnecessary devices within the BIOS and remove all pci cards. remove all but 1 ram stick, and try using different ram sticks, one at a time, while trying to boot. if it boots, with 1 ram stick, 1 hard drive and 1 dvd/cd drive then try adding/reenabling the other devices one at a time, until you find the device that keeps it from booting.

if your pc wont load with just a hard drive, cd rom and 1 stick of ram, then it is prolly trashed. if removing/disabling one of the other devices (such as the sound card or the modem card) allows it to boot, then you have found what needs replaced.

My acer laptop keys are sticking and to hard to push down. I need to replace them how do I do that?

no they don't need replacing they just need cleaning, you can remove the panel that goes accross the top of the keyboard (above the F keys) if you remove this panel you can remove the keyboard too, it is connect to the laptop with a ribbon cable that you can remove. when the keyboard is free all you have to do is run it under warm water (not hot) and clean the keys gently with washing up liqiud that you use for the dishes, keep on running warm water on it until the keys are free (you may have to repeat this process if the sticking persists) Now for the important part, you have to leave the keyboard to dry for at least 24-48 hours in a warm dry room before you can put it back in, press on the keys periodically to make sure they are free

Won't run

you have,nt seated the memory module back correctly.
push module in at an angle, usually about 45 degrees.
while pushing it back in, apply pressure, to push down towards the motherboard. ** check for any specs of Dust**
also check that you have,nt knocked the hard-drive ribbon cable in the process of cleaning.
