Keys 5, 6, r, t, f, g, v don't work on Aspire 4720z. What should I do?


1.Power off the Acer laptop and flip the unit over. Slide the battery release lever over and lift the battery out of the laptop.

2.Turn the laptop back over and open the lid. Look inside the open area on the keyboard where the key would normally go. Check to see if the plastic retaining clip is still inside the hole.

3Locate the plastic retaining clip if it fell off the keyboard along with the key. Use a pair of tweezers to set the clip back inside the hole. Line up the holes on the clip with the four raised nodules inside the keyboard hole.

4.Set the key back onto the plastic clip. Push the key down until it clicks into place.

5.Flip the laptop back over if there are keys that are not working properly. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the three screws on the left side of the case that hold the keyboard in place. Turn the laptop back over so that you can see the LCD screen.

6.Push the thin end of a flat-head screwdriver under the LED indicator strip above the keyboard. Pop the strip upward and pull it off the laptop.

7.Lift the keyboard up towards you until the long ribbon cable running from the bottom of the keyboard to the motherboard comes into view. Unplug the cable from the port on the motherboard and then pull the keyboard and its ribbon cable off the case. Spray out the underside of the keys and the inside of the Acer laptop case with canned air.

8.Reassemble the keyboard, LED indicator strip and battery.

The "E" key on my keyboard does not depress


if you are careful, you can usually pull the plastic keys off of the keyboard (gently pry the end with a small screwdriver or something and it will usually pop off) ..... there may be dust, or bits of food etc. that has gotten into the mechanism behind the key. If there is, blow it out with some compressed air and put the key back on and try it again.

If that doesn't work..the key mechanism may actually be broken, and the keyboard may need to be replaced.

Button from laptop pulled off..need quick fix!!!!!!


The pieces snap into place if you place them correctly on the keyboard and press down until you hear them click together. You may need to pry one off to see the orientation of the white plastic piece that goes on first. Lay the piece like the one you just looked at and firmly press the key evenly on top of it until you hear the click sound. You may have to rock it a little to get it to fully engage. If it sticks down, take a paper click and gently pry it up and it should work fine.

Acer aspire 5920 wont start. light in AC chrger


This is a sample of what you can try to do to diagnose a non-starting computer, If these don’t work, realize that most likely a system board (motherboard) has failed or the actual power trim strip above the keyboard has failed.

  1. Unplug the computer, then take the battery out, push the power button and hold it for about 30 seconds. Plug the system back in (leave battery out) and push the power button. If it starts, Great! If not unplug go to the next step.
  2. You should still have the battery out and the power unplugged. Now turn the laptop over. Take off all the covers and pull out the hard drive and ram and wireless card. Find the screw that has a symbol kind of like this its the CD rom drive screw. Now pull the drive out. Pick one stick of ram and put it back in the computer. Flip it over open it plug it in and hit the power button. If it does not fire up then unplug it and switch the ram. Plug it back in and hit the power button again. If it doesn't start up, unplug the computer and go to the last step.
  3. Pull the memory out and find the screws that hold the keyboard on. There are symbols in the plastic there should be 2 screws holding it in. Now in the battery compartment, there are several screw at the back edge of the computer take them out and also the ones in the battery in the center strip. Some are silver and some are black. Once you have the screws out of the battery area flip the computer over and open the lid. The strip just below the LCD with the power button and controls will now be able to be lifted up. You will probably have to lightly get an edge started before it will come up. There should be several little cables hooked to it. Flip the control panel over and look for some screws holding the keyboard in. I think there's 2. Lift up the keyboard. Making sure there's nothing touching anything important and then plug the computer in. Carefully hit the power button and see if the computer tries to start. If it does try it will probably beep at you. Unplug it and put a stick of ram in it. Plug it in and try to start it again. If not, unplug the computer and Go to the next step.
  4. Carefully put the keyboard and control strip in place. Flip the computer over and loosen all the screws that hold the computer together. Flip the computer over again and pull the keyboard and control strip up again. Flex the inner aluminum plate that was under the keyboard lightly. Plug in the computer and then hit the power button. If it tries to start, Great! put it together again in the reverse process.
If it does not, there are 2 possible things I would suspect the Control strip or the mainboard. If you don't get the computer to start back up please put it back together so you remember where all the screws go. Even if you plan to get another mainboard put it back together.

I need to replace keyboard from acer 4330. any tips ???? Thanks


Hi there.
Remove the laptop battery and the AC power supply, open the lid as far back as you can take it.
Get a small flat headed screwdriver, now, you have to take off the keyboard bezel, this is the strip of plastic above the keyboard with the power button on it, the best way to remove it is to start by the on/off button by gently prying the bezel up from the lid hinge, once you have one side out gently pull it up using your fingers, it will unclip and lift away.
Next you have to remove 2 screws from the top of the keyboard, these should be visible to you, once the screws are out carefully lift the keyboard up, you will see a ribbon cable that is connected to the motherboard, gently pull the tab up on the connector that the ribbon cable sits in and it should release it and you can now remove the keyboard and replace it.
To re-assemble just follow my direction in reverse.
Please post back with the results and for any additional advice if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Keyboard broken on my Acer Aspire 5520


For the Acer Aspire 5520 I'm working on, (Acer Aspire 5520-5156, mode nol: ICW50)

Remove the three black screws under the battery, not the silver screws.

VERY carefuly pry off the power button cover. It will make 'snapping' sounds and if you where gentle nothing will be broken.

The keyboard has no screws holding it and can be slid toward the screen and very gently pryed out, taking care not to tear the ribbon cable, as mentioned before.

When the keyboard is out the cable can be released by gently pulling the cable lock on the header toward the cable, the thin (black in this case, it's usualy a different color than the white connector) plastic part of the connector I just use my fingernails, one index finger on each end slowly pulling till it releases.
Pull the cable out using the pull tab. You can just pull the flat cable out with the pull tab without releasing the calbe lock but you stil need to release the cable lock to properly put in the new cable, then push the cable lock back tight to the connector.

I need to frequently clean the inside of my Acer 5610-4534 laptop...I have never disassembled one before; can you help me to get it open?


1fd22a3.jpg
Insert a small flathead screwdriver under the keyboard bezel and carefully lift it up. Continue releasing plastic latches and removing the keyboard bezel with your fingers


65c2000.jpg
Be careful, on some models the bezel might be connected to the motherboard as it shown on the picture above. If you accidentally pulled the cable, connect it back. It is not necessary to disconnect the keyboard bezel from the motherboard in order to remove and replace the keyboard, just put it aside so you can access the keyboard screws.

8d145ef.jpg
Remove three (or more) screws from the top of the keyboard. Carefully lift up the keyboard from the laptop case

2e7bf96.jpg
The keyboard connects to the motherboard via a flat ribbon cable. Before you pull the cable from the connector, you’ll have to unlock the connector.

ad447a7.jpg
The image above illustrates how to unlock the keyboard connector. Carefully move the connector lock 2-3 millimeters up and after that pull the keyboard cable. To install the keyboard, follow the above mentioned steps in the reverse order.
