    After reading the solution I found the exact way to remove the keyboard.Close the screen. Remove the three screws on the screen hinges. Open the screen all the way parallel to the desk top. pull up the hinge cover along with the silver plastic strip above the keyboard. The screws holding the keyboard are clearly visible(2).

Let me start from the top.

1: removing the keyboard: as near as I can tell, at the top of your keyboard is power button etc,.. this cover can be removed.
once removed, there are at least 3 screws under it, once those are out there are 2 more on the bottom. NOTE:
could be that like on my Compaq and IBM the proper keys on the bottem are denoted by a small etching of a keyboard.
It may not be neccesary to remove the keyboard, so if it ain't broke.. don't fix it.
2: Fixing this keyboard is possible IF by stuck you mean they stick but otherwise work. My IBM for example ( used by
my kids on occasion ) has had sticky substances dropped onto the keyboard. I simply removed the appropriate keys,
cleaned them with alcohol and re-seated them. CAUTION: Pay attention to how they come off so you can put them back on
and be careful not to break the plastic connectors.
In closing,.. if all else fails and after cleaning and re-seating the keys dont work, buy a new one. They aren't that expensive if
you look around. I won't put a website here for an on-line store that carries them,.. but do a google search you'll find several
places.

    Also:

    If you look hard enough ( altavista search for this one ) you can buy a service manual for that laptop.

    search for :
    Laptop service manuals, they cost anywhere from $5 to $10 USD

You can remove the keyboard and clean any liquid under it. ( The keyboard is one-piece ... and you may not be able to clean easily under each key.)

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.

Logitech cordless keyboard erratic after cleaning keys


seems to be that you may have accidentally swept some dirt underneath the keys.
try pressing each key individually in word and narrow down the affected key or keys, then remove the affected keys (using a keyboard key removal tool, or very carefully by hand) and clean underneath the key with a small dry clean brush both under the key and the board section it lay in, then replace the key and type the key again, if that has no luck then try the process again.

hope this helps

Acer Aspire 5610 - one key does not work


Laptop keyboard are semi-sealed circuit boards. This means that liquid can get into the contacts and can not be cleaned. Depending on how much liquid was spilled on the keyboard chances are that the liquid has seeped around the edges of the keyboard and down onto the mainboard of the laptop. My first suggestion would be to keep the laptop turned off until you can remove the keyboard and check for liquid damage to the mainboard. If there is no damage to the mainboard I would suggest buying a new keyboard before turning the computer back on as any shorts caused by the liquid damage on the keyboard can cause damage to the keyboard controller circuit on the mainboard.
