Tools Required: A small Phillips and a small flat-blade screwdriver are required replace the keyboard.

Acer Aspire One A0A150 keyboard issue,


Sounds to be you just got a faulty keyboard from HongKong, if your old keyboard works except the the Z and the new keyboard works only with function keys, then it sounds to be that the new keyboard is not ment for your laptop. if anything you should of had the same problems as your old keyboard. try using a USB keyboard.

Tecra 8200, I have bought a replacement keypad


take it to a shop. because i know how to do it but you hav to take the whole cover of the laptop then take the old one off and put the new one on the screw everything back. the thing you shouldnt have bought a new keyboard. because its not the key pads its probably the panels under them might be meesed up. but you can try to open it up and install the new one but one mistake could cost you $100 or maybe $200 so the chance is pretty risky

Gateway ma3 keyboard problem


The problem seems to be that the pressure pad underneath the key is stuck on the "activated" position. Taking the keyboard out would not affect the position of the pressure pad. Also attaching a USB key board will not make any difference since the original keyboard is still electrically connected and has priority over any external plug n play devices. A new set of keyboard pressure pads should solve this. I suggest taking it to your local computer repair centre.
