Re: buy replacement keyboard for a Acer travelmate C300...
Ebay is a good place to start. To replace it. Take out the screw on the back labeled "KB." Then on the front, there are three tabs on top of the keyboard (closest to the screen). Take a pen and pull them towards you. Then take the keyboard out and put the other one in.

I will assume you are finding the procedure to remove battery for the ACER travelmate C300 tablet PC. Best way would be to go to page 50 in the service manual available at this site. http://tim.id.au/laptops/acer/travelmate%20c300.pdf
The battery not charging could simply be the battery is old and dead or the charging circuit is faulty. Start with the adapter in that case as it is cheapest to replace.
If you are removing parts to diagnose further then I would strongly suggest you video what you are doing in order to get back to where you started.
The driver's can be found on Acers website Acer Drivers. Scroll to the bottom to: "Or select my product from a list:" Select: Notebook, TravelMate, TravelMate C300. Acer only supports Windows XP on this model according to the driver list. If your running 7, you might have to install the driver through a Windows update.
you can try changing the output of the travelmate, to VGA Or External Device.
ensure you have the correct output lead from computer to projecter. Then on your keyboard you should have a button that changes the output. i.e numerical 5-6-7 or 8. usually says LCD/VGA et,c.
failing this try altering the output in the systems bios setup.
you can enter this by pressing F2 Or esc at bootup.
if your unsure, and none of this helps, i,d suggest visiting acers site. and downloading the user manual(s)
Replace the keyboard easily available for cheap. Get full manual at Acer website but replacement is easy, be careful of the clips holding the connection to the motherboard, don't remove just slide upward to release..
I?ve had a couple of Dells laptops do this and without fail the cause was flaky touchpad/mouse drivers. I would suggest going to the Acer website downloading the latest drivers for your mouse. If that fails try removing the driver and running with the Windows default drivers, that what I?ve been doing successfully on my company laptops for several years now.
Acer driver download page, the web site is really slow so be prepared for a long wait.
The closest match was the C300 so I?m assuming these are generic drivers for the 300 series. Use the pull down menus and select the following:
-Select Product Line = Notebook
-To the right of that select TravelMate C300 (way at the bottom)
-Make sure English is selected and click on the search button. Once the drivers page opens go down towards the bottom and load for TM C300 touchpad drivers
