Acer laptop keyboard

My son was trying to take out the cd drive and order to take the cd drive out he had to take the keyboard off and when he did he snapped off the little tabs now trying to replace the keyboard and it seems without the tabs you can't get the keyboard connection back in so the keyboard makes connections to work. Any suggestions on how to get the keyboard connection back into place without the tabs?

    I believe the keyboard is okay actually I purchased one on ebay because the old one had missing keys. It is the plastic thing the keyboard connection goes into that we can not get the connection to go into because there was little tabs on that plastic piece that snapped off so I am thinking that is in the closed position and you need the tabs to open it up to put the keyboard connection into it. Any suggestion on how to get it open? Probably have to have a new plastic piece put on the board.

    Thanks

What is the boot order for acer aspire 7741


To use the Acer recovery CD you need to boot up with the CD.
Go into the BIOS setting and scroll through the settings until you come to Boot order. Then move the CD/DVD drive up as the first boot device and the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.
When you boot up the Acer with the recovery CD in the CD/DVD drive then it will boot up with the Recovery CD.

How do i remove the cd/dvd drive for my acer3003lc so that a can replace it


You can use the Toshiba Satellite 5205 guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar before you pull the cable.

for the acer 3000
1. At the back of the laptop remove the three screws on the support posts for the screen
2. Open the laptop fully and lift the plastic panel that has the power button.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard in place
4. Carefully slide the keyboard towards the monitor and lift.
5. To the left of the keyboard ribbon cable is the screw that's been causing all this grief.
6. Remove, slide out optical drive, reassemble.

Keys popped off


look at the bottom of the keyboard for a model or part number then try searching by that. You can usually find replacement keyboards on ebay.

go to this and choose your system. download the file (may take a while) and burn it onto a cd. put it in the laptop's cd drive and start up the laptop. you may have to configure the laptop to boot from the cd, when the laptop is starting, hold down the delete key on the keyboard. you should now be in the bios. go into the "boot order" section and set the cd/dvd drive as "1" the hard drive as "2" and anything else as three and so on. reboot the laptop. it will boot to the cd. it will recover the passwords automatically.

Acer Aspire 5507Z Notebook *ACTUAL NOTEBOOK


Sounds like the hard drive could be bad, or maybe it is trying to boot from the cd drive. The "Check media cable" is the error that bugs me. In your bios, you can usually have the computer boot from a CD Rom drive, or a usb flash drive, etc.. instead of the hard drive where the operating system is. Make that :

1. there is no cd in the cd drive.
2. When the laptop boots, don't touch the keyboard while booting.
Try that and lets see if it will boot into the cd drive.

Acer Aspire 5004 keyboard


You need those tabs. The reason those tabs are there is to hold the keyboard in place. Replacements are recommended ONLY if you take it to an authorized service center.
