Replacing laptop keyboard on Acer Aspire 3004wlci

Hi - 
Several key on my Acer Aspire 3004wlci are shot. I see that you can buy replacement keyboards. Can you point me to or direct me with step by step instructions on how to replace the keyboard myself for this particular model, or is this best "left to professionals." 
thank you!

I'd advise leaving it to professionals, both the socket on the motherboard and the ribbon cable on the keyboard are extremely fragile, very delicate.

If you really want to have a go yourself I'd look up a service (not user!) manual for your particular model, they normally give step by step instructions, some even with photos. It'll also provide you with a part number for the keyboard (also should be on a sticker on the back of the keyboard).

Your best bet for a cheap keyboard is on e-bay.

REPLACING KEYBOARD OF A ACER 3002 LCI LAPTOP


Replace the inside of the keyboard with a new piece. One of the major problems with Acer keyboards is that the plastic pieces holding the keys in place become loose or broken. You can find a cheap keyboard from Papatek.com or an electronics store. Simply take apart the new keyboard, pull the keys off your keyboard, lay the plastic piece on top and replace your keys.

How do I remove and replace the keyboard on and Acer Aspire 5920 laptop


Hi, well replacing a keyboard on a laptop is not the hardest thing ever. But you need to know a bit where you are going with this. The best thing to do would be to get a service manual explaining step by step what to do. But usually it's only a matter of removing a lot of screws with the correct screwdriver and put everything in place like it was at first. Also dont forget to properly connect the keyboard connector on the board just before replacing everything. If you are not confortable with this, i suggest you bring it to a local computer store to do the operation. IMO, some laptops are easier than others for keyboards (i.e. new lenovo laptops) but you can give it a shot.

2 keys have come off acer aspire 4520


If the plastic hinges and the tiny rubber press contact are still on the keyboard, you can align the key over the plastic hinge and press firmly down until you hear the key click back in place.
OR
You can purchase a replacement keyboard from several companies on the Internet. I purchased one from Yall Store - Use this link

OR
You can use a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port.

Where can I get laptop key?


Ebay is the best place, or a small computer shop that sells used laptops. On Ebay there are several vendors that sell individual keys, however, you may be able to get a good deal on an entire keyboard, then you will have many keys for future mishaps.
