Acer Latch is broken

My laptop's latch is broken. When I try to close it, it doesn't close automatically I have to close it then push the latch to the left in order to lock it. I think it's loose.

    The latch(to open the laptop) slides from left to right manually. When I slide it from left to right it doesn't slide back to the left.

On most notebooks, there is a VERY small return spring (smaller than a spring from a ball point pen) on the latch that tends to break.

If 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 party Acer 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.

Battery slide wont open


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.

If it's a spring loaded type latch mechanism, It may be as simple as a spring. Carefully remove the bezel and take a look.

How do i open the computer


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.
