It is probably better to show you a drawing of the Acer and where the screws are. From that it is easy to work ot where the bits all fit together. It apears there is a problem with Fixya, I cannot upload a drawing.
Try this:
Disconnect the power source and remove the battery.
Remove the hinge cover, it flexes fairly easilly but don't force it!
There will be a couple of screws fixing the keyboard down. Remove them and the keyboard becomes loose. Be careful with the flat cable and un plug it. (The socket has a clip that holds the cable in place, Use Care!).
Fit your new keyboards.
Hope this helps.

Replace DELL Laptop Keyboard Key


Sometimes with Dell laptops, the keys on the keyboard gets stuck or damaged or fells off the keyboard. There are many different ways to repair your broken keys. Just put your mind to it and you will be able to repair it yourself.

You can place an order to replace your broken key or you can repair it you have all the parts intact.

You should have a key cap, 2 or more retainer clips (plastic pieces), which goes under the key cap.

Following is the installation guide to replace and repair Dell laptop key.

To install your key on your laptop keyboard, start out by observing your metal plates on the keyboard.

Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard.The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

Here you can see that it has one large metal hook at the top and two metal hooks at the bottom.

Take the larger plastic piece and observe that it has two larger sticks at the bottom, two holes at the middle and two shorter sticks at the top. The bottom sticks are going to go into the bottom metal hooks. The smooth part faces away from the keyboard.

Take the smaller plastic piece and observe that it has a small bar at the bottom, two sticks at the top and two sticks at the middle. The sticks in the middle are going to go into the middle holes of the larger piece and the bar is going to click on to the top metal hook. The smooth part faces away from the keyboard.

Push it evenly to insert completely. Get a thin object or blade and stretch the plastic pieces upwards so that it clicks together.

Keybd keys are sticking


Be prepared to buy a new keyboard... Remove AC and DC power before working on laptop. Many laptop keyboards come off with the removal of 1 to 5 screws from the bottom. Some, however, require the palm rest to be removed, then a couple of screws that hold in the keyboard. Be careful when removing and replacing cables.After removing keyboard, rinse with water and let dry thoroughly before re-attaching and powering up. You cannot remove individual keys, so don't try.

I use my computer for gaming and when i move around with the arrows they stick sometimes in one of the directions un til i tap that key again, is this common for the classic keyboard 200?


Logitech keyboards are excellent both in quality and longevity.
Make sure some sugary drink has not been spilled on the keyboard.
This will make the keys stick and repeat. I have had good luck with Dawn and warm soapy water. Just make sure the keyboard is completely dry before putting back into service. 1-2 weeks drying time. (IF you dunk and submerge. Only the most severe)
Never EVER dunk a laptop in water to clean the keyboard.
I know I know... but someone will try it. :)

Check to make sure the windows sticky keys are turned off.
Sounds like dirt or a soft drink is causing this repeating pattern you described.

Good luck!

Keyboard malfunction


You can try reseating the keyboard but then if the same keys aren't working then that means that the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced. Could be either keys sticking or water got spilled on the keyboard.

Keyboard malfunction


Sounds like some water or other liquid got into the keyboard or could be that some keys are sticking. With the laptop turned off. Run your fingers thru all the keys going from left to right, up to down. This will ensure that if any keys are sticking that they will become unstuck.

Turn on the laptop and if you still have the problem then the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

My acer laptop keys are sticking and to hard to push down. I need to replace them how do I do that?


no they don't need replacing they just need cleaning, you can remove the panel that goes accross the top of the keyboard (above the F keys) if you remove this panel you can remove the keyboard too, it is connect to the laptop with a ribbon cable that you can remove. when the keyboard is free all you have to do is run it under warm water (not hot) and clean the keys gently with washing up liqiud that you use for the dishes, keep on running warm water on it until the keys are free (you may have to repeat this process if the sticking persists) Now for the important part, you have to leave the keyboard to dry for at least 24-48 hours in a warm dry room before you can put it back in, press on the keys periodically to make sure they are free

Wireless keyboard keys sticking


on most keyboad you can take of each key. Try to get a flat head screw driver and pop it of with some force. You then can clean the keys. If this does not work you might need a new keyboard. Do not use water (or very little)
