how to replace Acer Aspire V5-473P keyboard

Q: how to replace Acer Aspire V5-473P keyboard

Hi there, Several keys have died on my daughter's V5-473P keyboard. I searched here and all I found were lots of customers complaining about failed keyboards with no answers, so I ordered a $20 replacement keyboard on ebay. My question is about how to remove the top panel/bezel that surrounds the entire keyboard and touchpad? It seems like any effort to use a thin lever to pry it up would damage it... Do I need to come at it from the bottom by removing the motherboard, etc? I'm trying to repair this on the cheap, since it's barely out of warranty and after removing the bottom case, I find it's falling apart around many of the screw holes (the bottom case appears more pricey than the keyboard). Thanks.

I have an Acer Aspire All-In-One 5600U. The other day the power in our home went out due to a storm. After it came back on and I went to use my computer, the screen was black and said "Reboot and select proper boot device . . .". I tried downloading the media creation tool to a USB and booting up using this. I can get into the Troubleshooting menu but nothing works. When I attempt to do a custom install of Windows , it says "no signed device drivers were found". Is this a hard drive problem? In the BIOS, under Boot Options is does not list a specific hard drive. It just says "hard drive". Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

on BIOS, check under SATA devices or main screen if your HDD model is listed, if not, your HDD is gone.

You probably need to install SATA drivers but without a floppy drive you'll have to make a slipstream CD. Google for the procedure as well as for the SATA driver. There are a number of guides that tell you how.

I would like to replace the top cover of my Acer Aspire E5-571P and I am currently looking at this item on ebay.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Acer-Aspire-E5-571P-US-Keyboard-w-Palmrest-Touchpad-AP154000900-/391... In their description, they say it "Does NOT include the power button" (contrary to the picture?). Would I have to buy a separate power button then? Or could I retrieve the power button from my current top cover and stick it onto that one? I have no experience with replacing computer parts so if you have any advice or pointers for me please share them with me! Thank you in advance.

Hey guys - this thing has a solid back on it. Anyone know where the RAM is located on this model?

If its in the back behind the panel, how do you get the panel off? There are, literally, 24 screws on the back of it - some are shallow, some deep set. Any idea which ones to unscrew to remove back panel?

Thanks

A:Acer Aspire 5248-2481 - How to replace RAM?

I don't see an Acer Aspire 5248 on their website, you sure thats the correct model number?

In any case most of the Acer's have one or more smaller panels on the bottom of the laptop that come off separately, and there's likely a picture of RAM(kinda looks like a saw) next to the one that provides access the memory. Just remove the screws for that one panel and lift up where its notched in.

Also, there's likely the a manual installed on the computer that may show you how to do it.

I have Acer Aspire VN7-791G-71P5 with Intel Core i7-4710HQ and Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M. Running Asus ROG RealBench stress test, CPU reached maximum temperature (95 ░C) and was thermal-throttled to 2.6 GHz (almost no turbo). After I replaced thermal compound with Arctic Silver 5, CPU reached 80-85 ░C and was not thermal-throttled (full turbo). The pre-applied GPU thermal compound is actually comparable to the Arctic Silver 5; GPU temperatures did not measurably change after re-application.

Hey Guys,After an unfortunate fall my Aspire V5-473P-6459 has a damaged LCD screen. The digitizer seems to work fine so I ordered the replacement LCD screen only. (http://www.screencountry.com/index.php?section=products&model=ASPIRE%20V5-473P-6459&brand=Acer) When I tried to remove the old screen, I expected to find four screws holding the screen in, but instead there are plastic covers overtop of the metal tabs on the LCD screen. I have removed all the wiring, but I cant figure out how to get the screen out of this plastic casing. Does anyone have any experience with this, how hard is it to replace the LCD but keep the digitizer, are they always glued together, is it more work than its worth to try save it? I cant find much info online for the V5-473P so any help would be appreciated, thanks!

I haven't really looked at the Laptop to see how to dissassemble it to replace the keyboard (I have a replacement on order). It may not really be much of a problem once I look at it. The Acer users manual doesn't go into any parts replacement (other than adding memory or replacing the hard drive) and their "tech support" is of no help.

If someone has a link to something that would help, I'd appreciate it.

Tnx/Jack

My laptop twice had the same error. I bought my laptop at Febraury 2015 but in November 2015 the laptops didn┤t power on. I contact to support area of ACER and they reviewed my laptop changing the motherboard. In this case 9 month i can use the laptop. The second time happened at final of March 2016 with the same problem the laptop didn┤t power on again, just 4 motnhs again. Obviously the garantee time has finished and they don┤t want to fix my laptop. And I am asking to the forum whether anyone has had the same problem with this model of Acer taking about the Laptop doesn┤t power on. Somebody has epxerimented this problem and what is the experience to resolve the problem? Really i am so disapointed with my laptop ACER. Best Regards. Alberto Sandoval.

There is, however, I highly doubt a standard user would ever want to do this. And you will 100% break your warranty, and quite possibly break your computer trying to replace it. It is your own responcibility if you do it. It is not user friendly to implement. But if you really want to risk everything, you can find the part online, but your risk. If you want, you can wait for a ACE member to answer your question.



First, CALM DOWN and look at my profile picture. Calm? Now post your message. If I helped, a Kudos would be great! Marking as solution will help others as well, thank you!

Ok so I regularly play video games and work on this laptop but for a while when ever I hold the w key and release it the key would still act as if it is being pushed down and would not stop holding itself down. This also happens when I switch tabs and when that happens the w key becomes unresponsive for a while then it is able to be used a couple seconds/minute later. I am not having luck with cleaning the keyboard since there is no space at all to stick a spray in to remove dust or a way I know of to remove the covers of the keyboard but all my other keys are good.

Hey guys, I'm new here, and I want to ask you how to fix it? (the title says it all), it's not even work in the BIOS menu (well i can't even enter it :v)
I'm using windows 7 64-bit, I am typing with my father's laptop. Sorry for my bad english, anyway Thanks.
(And because I'm new here, i don't know if this is in the right or wrong section XD )
 

A:Acer Aspire E1-431 Keyboard is not working at all (All key).

Try using the keyboard on another computer and see if it works. If it's a USB keyboard, you should be able to use it on your father's laptop. If NO keys work on EITHER computer, the laptop is most likely ready for the garbage dump. I suppose you could try opening it up and cleaning it, but if it's not a very expensive keyboard I wouldn't even bother. Just replace it.

Chances are that the keyboard contacts are wearing out or it is full of dirt, try turning the PC upside down and gently tapping the keyboard, you may be suprised how much dirt comes out of it. You could also get a can of compressed air to blow out all the dirt, but if nothing helps a new keyboard may be the only solution.

Does she use a PS/2 or USB keyboard.

Repair shops, Salvation Army shops, White Elephant sell boards and mouse for as low as $2.00 to $4.00

Be sure it is not the socket... It is rare to very rare that a PS/2 keyboard will fail, bugt common for a USB keyboard to turn belly up.

I am helping a friend with an Acer Aspire 4330. The problem is some of the keyboard keys produce multiple entries(of varying letter) when pressed. All hardware drivers are updated, however acer shows no keyboard drivers to update. A USB keyboard works fine when plugged in. My question is this: could this be a spyware related issue? I want to make sure before I tear this apart and try cleaning/replacing the keyboard.
 

A:Acer Aspire 4330 keyboard issue

No, it's not malware if an external keyboard works fine. The problem is with the physical keyboard. Before you start replacing parts, find out what happened to it. If someone spilled something on it, the keyboard might not be the only thing damaged. It looks like an old laptop. Not worth sticking much money into.

Usually the best fix is to replace the keyboard... about $30 to $50.
Try cleaning it thorougly with a can of difluoroethane gas such as dust off, as sometimes they are just dirty.
You might also attempt disconnecting and reseating all relevant cables.

Hello everyone!

I recently bought a new keyboard for my Aspire 7741G. I wanted to replace the old kb with the new one, but i`m having problems removing the old keyboard. I`ve unscrewed all screws, but the top "plate" (the one that holds the keyboard) is still holding somewhere in the middle. Any advice on how to remove the keyboard? Or if someone knows where to find a service guide/manual for this laptop. Any answer is appreciated. Many thanks in advance!
 

A:Solved: Acer Aspire 7741G keyboard replacement

I don't know about Aspires, but while replacing a HDD in a Sony Vaio, the final screw holding the top plate was underneath the keyboard. All around the keyboard edges, there were "almost invisible" brackets holding the keyboard down. Had to use a very small screwdriver to carefully pop them.

Since the external works, it looks like you're ready for a new keyboard, but to be sure try the onscreen one; Accessories>System Tools>Accessibility>On Screen Keyboard. Also please don't post in bold caps. It's considered shouting. Also use the built in font as your post is quite large. Since your OS is Windows 7 and not 9X, I'm moving the thread there.

You could try removing and reconnecting the keyboard as the connector may be partly loose; I've seen that on many models and Dell and Lenovo both had entire lines of laptops where the connection would just come loose and simply had to be reconnected.

Just ruled out malware in other section of this forum. Laptop's integrated keyboard suffers intermittent lock-ups for no apparent reason (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, right now, doesn't). Touchpad seems deactivated (tried FN + F7 in case of accidental disable, but that's not the case), every option related to touchpad are grayed out in 'mouse' menu (config panel). Before malware check-up,tried system restore to last week, all problems were still there, so I reverted back. I have to use visual keyboard to type. Have to work with external mouse because touchpad doesn't work. Tried reinstalling touchpad drivers from Acer website, and didn't work. Computer worked perfect a few days ago.

Sounds like you may have some system files corrupt. This can occur after a lot of spyware. Some times just removing it dose not correct what it has already messed up. Your best maybe to back up your personal stuff. Then do a factory reinstall.

Acer Aspire Model ZD1 :5920-0914 has bad keyboard problem. The only way to use is to type onto copy, & paste where you normally would be typing. It actually
 came back from getting fixed, before that it didn't have a keyboard problem & wondered if one of these buttons on it got pressed to cause this. Hope to get help.
But i think it's got malware or infection also, so which forum would be best? Please Help. 
Thanks,

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

hi guys.

help

im having trouble with my laptop keyboard.
whenever i use my laptop keyboard the Fn function is "on" for the numeric keypad (the one usually on the right side of a normal keyboard). this started when i used an external keyboard. so thinking 'bout it i unplug the external keyboard but the same thing happens. the Fn function for the numeric keypad is "on". I have also tried powercycling the system but its still the same.

Please help. I can't use my laptop outside my house coz of that.
 

A:Acer Aspire One keyboard "Fn" problem

Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicating that the funtion keys are in use.

I also found a very similar post here: http://geeklord.com/2008/01/19/solution-to-keyboard-lag-problem-in-acer-aspire-4520-laptop/
About sticky keys (although that model may be different to yours)
Seems there may be a Bios update for that very issue

The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M
I am attaching a few pictures of what comes on the screen when I turn it on.
Even in safe mode it does not let me log in, it attempts repairs, it fails and then goes to the black screen with the white cursor.
If I try to start windows normally it loads the logo and then goes to the black screen.
Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.
For the last week it took very long to start up, failing to configure windows but it would eventually let me log in.
Since yesterday I am only getting the black screen. it is windows 7 by the way.

i need a very quick reply please

I restarted my computer like normal and for whatever reason the computer is now stuck at the Acer boot screen. I try to press DEL to enter Setup and I even tried pressing F12 to go into the Boot Setup, but for whatever reason the computer does not respond to anything.

To shut it off I have to hold down the power button and eventually it shuts off.

Stuff to know:
- I have a wireless mouse and keyboard being used on that desktop.. Should I perhaps try to plug in a corded mouse and keyboard?
- I'm running on Windows 7 Ultimate.

My system is roughly months old I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to home premium There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to Acer M3203 Windows software Acer's upgrade and Aspire 7 deep hibernation The only way to wake it was to unplug Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software the power from the tower I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers to finally reinstalling everything No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer I just got it back from Acer's repair depot They had to replace the motherboard hard drive and fans on the system They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold the hibernation thing started again It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory Now it seems stable running Vista I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell Is it me or is Acer systems flakey Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows without having to format every week I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly Sometimes it won't even turn on Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating.

Try booting to Memtest86 you can burn a CD and I think it can also be run from a USB bootable flash drive. This will test your memory for problems and also let you know that the hardware in general will run (except the hard drive which is ignored at this stage.If the memory is good, then boot to your hard drive mfg's utility or Seatools from Seagate (DOS version) the same as Memtest but it tests your hard drive to see if it is just the drive that you cannot install on.If the memory and hard drive tests OK then you may just need to delete all current partitions on the hard drive before trying to install.If the memory does not test good, try cleaning the contacts on the memory with a soft pencil eraser and snapping them in and out 5 or 6 times to also burnish the slot's contacts. Then try memtest again on one stick at a time in case one stick is bad, swap and try again.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
