Is there a way to fix keys that are not very responsive?
I have a 1692 acer aspire. The keyboard has been a pain since I bought it. A few of the keys will not work unless you press them at exactly the right spot, they have "dead spots" on parts of the key. Was wondering if there is a way to fix? I saw a new keyboard on ebay for 50 bucks but it seems a bit silly just for a couple keys. The other thing is, is there an easy way to just pull the outer cap off without pulling the other two pieces apart? As I found those other two pieces extremely hard to put back when in the past when a key came off.
thanks in advance

Well new Key boards can be very cheap if you look in the right places. And you can get some real fancy ones for the price you mentioned on line.
As you mention the you pulled one apeart in the past- I wont go into that detail.
But the fault you mentioned seems to suggest distortion of some kind, whereby the membrane is not a good fit over the circuit board.
If you feel like taking this one to bits have a go and check out the membrane

i know its a pain but if the laptop is still under warranty then i would let them fix it for you
you could try re installing the operating system
but you will loose anything that you may of put onto the laptop yourself since you purchased it
unless you have stored them onto a spare drive or pendrive
this may correct things or it may not to do this :-
press the power on key then the Alt+F10 keys together a few times this may take you into the factory restore options then follow the on screen instructions
go to the start key bottom left of the keyboard then up to programs then over to the right to acer empowering technology then over the right again to acer erecovery management and click on it
then click restore
and once again follow the onscreen instructions
and if the default password is not shown there when asked this could be 000000
that is 6 zero's
your best bet is to either go to a local computer shop to see if they have a keyboard for your acer or order one of amazon, they are fairly cheap you can either go to the link i have provided or search on amazon your laptop Acer Aspire 4720 Keyboard.
Hello, May i know why you going for a new keyboard???
I mean a few months back few keys on my keyboard stopped working and i too was thinking of getting a new keyboard .. when my cousin suggested me to just replace the keys which don't work.. And i found this company who sell individual keys with all the underneath fittings in a reasonable rate, www.laptopkey.com
You could try them out if you need just a few keys
Replacing keys on laptops is really a pain, and would require scraping a keyboard to get the keys....Anyways you can buy a keyboard for your laptop relatively cheap from Ebay. Between 10-24 dollars. I took the liberty to do the ebay search and have provided you a linke to many keyboards just for your laptop.
You?re in luck, its fairly easy and Acer has detailed instructions with pictures no less. Here is the link: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?recordid=882&formid=3390&website=AcerPanAm.com/us&siteid=7293&words=all&keywords=&areaid=7
