Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

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

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

Keyboard key issue in laptop


The metal bar needs to be clipped on to the plastic shift key. Look under the plastic shift key and you can see recess where the metal bar fits. Place the shift key over these recess and push down until it clicks into place.

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