Putting keys back on acer 3100 laptop

Hi my daughter pulled off my backspace and enter keys. it looks like two pieces one metal that's fits into the plastic key. like a metal square piece.
how can I snap these back on I have all the pieces and actually one metal square is still attached to the keyboard base. Iam pretty handy with tools and I saw one post that they snap back on by pushing on the top and down. the snap ears look like they are at the top not in the middle.
Thank You
Joe

Try function and scroll lock at the same time the try to enter the password, if this does not reset your keyboard, remove the power and the battery for 3 minutes then turn it back on and try again.

Repair ACER Keyboard


Many a times, laptop's keys fell off the keyboard or it gets damaged. Don't fret on buying a whole new keyboard when you can repair the keys yourself.
This is an installation guide to repair keys of Acer’s laptop keyboard.

You should have a key cap and 2 or more retainer clips (plastic pieces), that goes underneath the key cap.

To install the key on your laptop keyboard, start out by observing the metal plates on the keyboard.

Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard. The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

Here you can see that it has one large metal hook at the bottom and two metal hooks at the top.

Take the larger plastic piece and observe that it has two holes at the top corners, two sticks at the bottom and two holes in the middle. The top holes are going to go into the top metal hooks on the keyboard. The smooth part of the plastic piece faces away from the keyboard.

Take the smaller plastic piece and observe that it has two holes at the top, two sticks at the middle and a bar with larger hole at the bottom. The sticks in the middle are going to go into the middle holes of the larger plastic piece. The bottom bar is going to click onto the bottom metal hook on the keyboard. The smooth part of the plastic piece faces away from the keyboard.

Place the smaller plastic piece onto the larger plastic piece and insert its sticks to the holes of larger piece. It’s one piece now.

Insert the top plastic sticks into the top metal holes and the bottom bar into the bottom metal hook on the keyboard. Get a thin object or a blade and stretch the plastic pieces downwards to insert completely.

Take your letter key cap, put it in the middle of the plastic pieces and push down evenly from all four sides.

My lap some button are not working ,like enter


Hi! The problem could be on the keyboard itself. You will have to replace the keyboard to make all the keys to function. Once replaced they'll all be back to normal. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Popped a key off my Dell Inspiron laptop keyboard by accident.


You should be able to just pop off another key from your keyboard using a flat screwdriver. Then just compare how that key looks and reassemble the plastic components and the key just snaps back on. Also you may want to check your warranty at support.dell.com under warranty status and enter your service tag. If you are under warranty dell will replace it. Also ebay dell keyboards are cheap to buy and easy to install just two screws and a simple cable. If you need more help let me know.

Acer aspire one notebook broke


you might be able to fix it by taking the battery off and popping off the keys and cleaning underneath the keys with gentle cleaner - that worked for me when i got sticky keys from orange juice; but be gentle when you take the keys off as they are on very fragile hinges and you don't want to break them...also - be sure that anything you do from here on out may void your warranty

Try pulling out adjacent keys and then put the enter key back . The smaller keys can then easily be fitted back.
