Re: Acer Latch is broken
you've tried to used adhesive and it still won't hold i would assume somebody has to open the Laptop and replace the latch. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third partyAcer Repair Service. However, the part is
available on ebay. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an Acer Laptop. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.

Does it have a locking mechanism? The Latch/spring may be broken or jammed, push the latch over and hold use a tool, old credit card, to wedge at the crack where the battery meets the laptop, gently pry it open, while holding the latch open. OR remove the laptop's bottom cover. If you supply the Model of the Compag , I may can assist you further.
Open the computer? You mean open the lid to the laptop? Some laptops latch once closed to prevent accidental opening. There should be a latch either located in the very front of the laptop that would need to be pushed to one side or the other or pressed to release the latch....or it may be located on the side.
you need to mimic what the latch did most latches are like arrows in this case get two thin items ( blunt butter knifes) and move the latches both left or right if its a middle type latch then try pushing in were the broken latch was .get what i mean if the old latch pushed in then its a middle latch if it slide then is double arrow latch ounce the laptop is open if you dont want to spend $$ fixing the lach just cut of the locking arrows to stop it locking again
