Here is a keyboard removal guide with pictures. That should be more than enough to diassemble the keyboard, though I am afraid its damaged and you will have to replace the keyboard.

If the power was on scrape the keyboard and replace it with a new keyboard
if not use compressed freon to blast out all dried up and sticky beer
years ago it was sold a circuit board cleaner which is outlawed now. Most people did not know it was freon in those cans

My acer aspire E1 laptop does not power on after I


Do not power it up. If only water it will eventually dry out but beer is sticky and requires proper cleaning. Maybe take apart, rinse with water to remove residues and allow to dry thoroughly covered in rice to aid drying. However if it was on when the spill happened it may well be fried.

Non functioning keys due to spilled wine on Acer Aspire 7520-5311


It's most likely done , shut down, remove battery, remove keyboard , try to clean. Replace if necessary. Rarely does liquid of any type do electronics any good.

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 ..

I have an acer aspire 5517 model spilt a beer in it,now of course some of the key are really sticky,when i try to enter my passwod i get several letters appearing with one key push,how do i remove keyboard...


Here you go: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/Manuals/acer/2009/ServiceGuides/SG_Aspire_5517_09172009.pdf
You may want to just replace the keyboard since they only cost in the $30 range. Do a google search on acer aspire 5517 keyboard.
The beer might have gotten into the motherboard which could be a real problem. Good luck.

To take the keys off, gently pull up on the top side of the keys until they snap off. Just push them down again and they'll snap back on.
