The letters are attached to the keyboard with the clips. Check if the clip is broken or not . if not then contact the manufacturers spare parts department and get the part and attach it.

Your keyboard could need replacing, or it could just be a dirty key. It may also be a loose connection from the keyboard to the mainboard.

Spilled some soup in my spacebar then i took it out after i put it back all letters are jumbled. i got acer aspire 1 notebook. help pls!


The keyboard is faulty and has electrical faults that is causing the jumbled letters.
To test the laptop is functioning correctly connect an USB keyboard to your laptop and check to see if the USB keyboard types correctly. If not then the laptop has a serious fault and possibly needs a new motherboard.
If the USB keyboard works OK the you need to replace the laptop's faulty keyboard.
You may be able to get a replacement keyboard from this WEB site.

The A came off


It should be possible to just clip it back in. If however any of the plastic bits have broken off you are most likely going to need to replace the keyboard (it's not cost-effective to buy a replacement key).

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.

Cannot get the letters working right


Your need a keyboard. I'm guessing you have a laptop. (If you have a desktop, just buy a replacement keyboard anywhere and you'll be set.)

Here is a possible source:

I purchased some laptops parts from them for repairs and have been satisfied.

Loose key


Is only the cap loose, but you can still operate that key?

On most laptop keyboards, the letters are caps on the keyboard button. They are held in place by small plastic tabs on the keyboard structure. The cap snaps in place and is held by the tabs. If the tabs are broken, the cap stays loose.

Some keyboards use a small slider that moves as you depress the key, which means you can't glue it.

Laptop keyboards are replaceable and can be purchased cheaply on ebay or some repair sites.
