A cheaper solution is to buy a usb keyboard, provided you have spare ports. Otherwise you'd have to take it to a computer repair depot.

Need to replace keyboard on toshiba laptop Att300


Laptops are a great line of computers that offer their users portability. However, one drawback of laptops being so portable is that all of their components are internally attached. Replacing things on a desktop computer can be as easy as unplugging a cord. With laptops, simple things like changing a laptop's keyboard becomes slightly more complicated.

Unplug the laptop's power cord from the wall outlet and remove the internal battery pack. To remove the internal battery pack, simply locate the release button on the bottom of the laptop. This button needs to be held in while the battery pack is slid free from the computer. This button locks the battery in place, so if it is not held in the battery pack will not be able to be removed. Unscrew all of the screws from the bottom of the laptop. All laptops have different amounts of screws holding the external case together; however, there is usually one screw at each corner, and then one or two screws in the center of the laptop. Once all the screws are removed, slide the laptop's hard drive from the computer. The computer's hard drive will generally be located on the left or right side of the laptop; there will be a small symbol engraved into the laptop to denote its location. Remove the screen from the body of the laptop. To do this, remove the two screws from the back of the computer that hold the screen's hinges in place. Once the screws are removed, pull up gently on the screen until the two pegs that held the screen up have cleared the holes in the laptop's body from which they rested. There will be two wires that lead away from the laptop screen so make sure not to pull up so far that they become disconnected. Separate the two plastic halves of the laptop's external case to expose the computer's internal components. Lift up on the keyboard pad and flip it on its face. You will notice a film-like strip that leads away from the keyboard and into the heart of the laptop. Before you can remove the keyboard, you must unscrew the metal piece that covers the computer's motherboard. This piece takes up the majority of the inside of the computer, so it will be very obvious to you when you are looking inside the laptop. Disconnect the keyboard connection after the metal covering from Step 4 has been removed. To remove the keyboard, follow the film-like strip back to where it connects to the computer's motherboard. The end of the connection will be held down by a small plastic tab. Pull up on this tab to release the keyboard connector and simply lift the old keyboard out of the laptop. Connect the new keyboard to the laptop. To do this, simply stick the end of the new keyboard's film-like connector inside the plastic tab that you released to remove the old keyboard. Push the tab back down so that it holds the end of the new keyboard's connector in place. Reassemble the computer by putting the components back in the exact spot you removed them from.

My pull cord is stuck. It will only pull so far and it stops


Remove the top cover to your engine, along with any attachments. Your cord is in the top of this cover. You will be able to see where the problem is when you pull the cord.If you find that the cord has tangled somehow, you will need to untangle the cord. Be careful not to damage the cor in the untangling process. GOOD LUCK.

Hi i have got a new keyboard and wish to change it on acer 7520

Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard Repair and ReplacementAre you considering laptop keyboard repair? You might think twice if you happen to be the lucky owner of a laptop, because replacing the keyboard rather than repairing it could be a lot less expensive. Laptop keyboard replacement on this particular model is very easy and takes just a few minutes. Here is a quick Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard repair tutorial with step-by-step instructions. Once you have purchased the new keyboard, all you need to replace the old with the new is a screwdriver and something plastic, flat and thin like a credit card or guitar pick.
Step one: Remove the two screws from the bottom of the computer that are holding down the Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard bezel. The bezel is the bar that sits right above all the function keys.
Step two: Turn the computer over, open the cover and insert the credit card or guitar pick between the bezel and the laptop screen. The bezel has pegs that sit in holes, you need to slowly pry up the bezel. It will make a bit of a popping noise as it is removed.
Step three: Now hold on to the laptop keyboard from the end closest to the screen and gently pull it away from the touch-pad end and flip it over. You will see the ribbon attached to the underside of the Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard. There is a little plastic connector holding the ribbon to the computer. To unlock it, carefully pull up on the two tabs; one located on each corner of the connector. Be very gentle when you do this as this is the one part that gets broken the most often when changing a keyboard. The ribbon cable will now be released.
Step four: Carefully pull the ribbon out of the connector and remove it along with the entire Acer laptop keyboard.
Final step: To insert the new Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard, place the board face down so you have easy access to the ribbon. Make sure the keyboard is lined up so when you flip it back over the keys are in the correct position. Keep the ribbon straight at all times; twisting it could damage it. Place the ribbon in the connector; it only goes in one way. Once in place, push down on the connector tabs to lock it. Now flip the keyboard over and slide it down toward the touch pad and take the bezel and line the pegs up with the holes and push it in place. Then turn the computer over and replace the two screws you removed from the bottom. You can now power on your computer and see if the Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard works. If it is not working, more than likely the ribbon was not inserted properly.

If you trying to pull the starter to start it doesn't pull out


Hi, sometimes the recoil rope gets a little tangled inside the housing if the cord is allowed to snap back after pulling. You need to undo the screws that hold the recoil on the motor and inspect the rope inside. If you cannot pull the rope freely while it is detached, then the problem lies with the recoil. In this case try to find the tangled cord and undo it. Test that the coil works before reinstalling it. It should work fine. If you pull the recoil while it's detached and it moves freely, then the problem lies with the engine itself. This would indicate a seizure and requires a complete tear-down and rebuild. Good luck.

The port you plug the power cord into is not making a good connection - how to fix?


Try to pull the tab from the inside (Laptop) outward a little but be gentle, this holds the cable firm.
