Question about Acer PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire 7200 and my keyboard is fairly screwed up from spill damage. I was hoping to manually change it myself, but I don't know where to start taking parts apart. I have access to the memory compartment, but how do I access the keyboard from there?

Hello,

There are screws accessed from the bottom of your laptop, and in most cases labeled as keyboard, if not, start unscrewing these. Oh, as you begin to remove the keyboard and palm rest do not be too surprised if you hear large sounding snaps, this is normal. Once you begin lifting the top off carefully, you will see a thin mylar ribbon cable or two. You will want to download a users manual on servicing your internal components as there is a specific way to remove these ribbon cables. Usually you squeeze both ends of the female receptacle together and the cable will come loose. Same for reattaching it later. Once, you do have it off however, survey the internal area of your laptop for evidence of the spill and clean it up with 99% or pure alcohol from a hardware store (oh, and of course do this with external power disconnected and the battery out). Next, you may be able to salvage your keyboard by rinsing it down with electronic parts cleaner. It may take more than one can to do this, but you may find that this fixes your stuck keys and you do not have a need to replace it.

Best Regards and Good Luck,

How to remove hard drive in a acer aspire 1641


take the side off the case, it should be fairly easy to find the screws or knobs to unscrew to remove it. depending on the case type there are usually 4 screws holding the hard drive; 2 on either side, then you should be able to slide it out. you can look here http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_8244498_install-drive-acer-aspire-desktop.html for reference

Beer spill on wireless keyboard


Usually if you try you can recover it ..but it may have permanent damages and some of the keys not work proper..You need to open it up ..and clean the plastic sheets inside ..with water ..and after that to dry them well with cold air ..The issue is that the beer is sticky when dries out and keep those plastic sheets either in permanent contact or not at all ..but the keyboard may be still functional ..
I had recovered keyboards from this kinda faults before ..pay attention on the electric part not to damage it ..and be patient as in brain surgery ..

How do I get into safemode on my acer aspire desktop


1 Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time. 2 During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup." 3 Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears. If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2. 4 Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard. 5 Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection. The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

My Acer Aspire T310 won't go past the Acer screen and the Keyboard and Mouse don't work


Yours may be a little old computer and the cmos battery (on the mother board)is drained out. Replace this battery. You need a working keyboard.
