Can I replace the keyboard?

Kind of. If you disassemble the laptop and remove the lid you can definitely access the keys. You should be able to replace any missing keys (if you have replacements) and you can attempt to fix the stuck keys. But, it's not typically a situation where you can go in there and say you are just going to replace an entire keyboard.

Keyboard key

Unless any of the retaining pins are broken you should be able to fix it yourself. First you need to work out how the clips fit together and then replace these onto the keyboard. Then gently push the key back onto the clips. If any of the pins are broken then do a search of online stores as people often sell individual keys but you will need to tell them the exact make and model of the laptop.

"lost backspace button on Acer Aspire One"

Unfortunately, there is no way to purchase just one key of the keyboard. Acer does offer full replacement keyboards and they are easy enough to install. Unless you can find just the backspace key on eBay or something, you might have to replace the entire keyboard.

Thanks for using the fixya Forums.

Ok, this will not be too hard. You just need to be careful.

You will need a couple tools : A small Cross-tip (phillips) Screwdriver, A small Flat-tip screwdriver. and a small pick tool (if you have one)

Ok right above your keyboard is the Power button bezel which is about the width of the laptop, and even covers the monitor hinges. Using you Pick tool or Small Flat-tip, use the tool to gently pry the hinge part of the bezel upwards. You should feel it kinda free itself, maybe even freeing the entire end, firmly grab the end of the bezel and kind of wiggle it from side to side while lifting it. you should be making some progress and feel the entire bezel start to release. On acers most do not have screws holding the power bezel in place, be sure to check for a couple screws on the bottom if the bezels doesn't seems to come off with my instructions.

Once you have removed the bezels, you will now see the top of the keyboard. There should be a couple small screws holding the keyboard in place. Remove those screws only. Gently lift the keyboard from the laptop, keeping in mind the ribbon cable under the keyboard that attaches to the motherboard. The spot where this cable attaches is white with a small brown tab on each side. using a small amount of pressure gently push these brown tabs forward toward the screen...they will only move a small amount. once the brown tabs have been pushed forward, you can now remove the ribbon cable as well as the entire keyboard. Now your ready to put in the new keyboard. Slide the ribbon cable into the slot, push back the brown tabs to hold the cable. lay the keyboard into the laptop, replace the twon screws, replace the power button bezel. Boot up laptop, make sure everything works and voila you done.

Keyboard repair

You should call Acer tech support and enquire about a keyboard. I am sure that they will tell you to take the computer to their rep for your area. Normaly they change the keyboard when there is a fault. If the circuit board under the keys is defective or if one of the IC's on the board failed, this would not be servicable at all. The keyboards on these computers were not really designed to be able to be serviced.

Replace keyboard for acer 3100

On your laptop there should be two identical lugs apart from each other. Just gently prize them out all the way around the keyboard. You'll see a couple of screws securing the the keyboard loosen those and withdraw the old keybord. BE EXTRA careful when disengaging the connection to the laptop. A paper looking connection dont force it out gently ease it and replace it the same way. good luck .. hope you come back here and let me know how you got on most people get what they want and run!!! thats life
