Can you replace the keyboard on Acer Aspire E5-571...

Question: Can you replace the keyboard on Acer Aspire E5-571...

Hi all,I can get a good deal on an Acer Aspire E5-571G-59CT laptop.However there is one downside. They keyboard layout is in German. I think the German layout is QWERTZ?Anyways, I want to know if it's possible to replace the keyboard with a keyboard with a US-layout (QWERTY).I noticed several online shops are offering keyboards, but I rather be sure on this fact.I can find keyboards, with US-layout, for Acer Aspire 'E5-571G'-part, but not for 59CT model. Does that matter? I think the last part is only for the configuration, right? Can someone confirm this?The keyboard I found so far is: http://bit.ly/1EVk49kOn eBay even cheaper: http://ebay.to/1vjvXG9Thank you so far for responding. Highly appreciated.Regards

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

There's not a company out there building quality keyboards for laptops. All of them are made in China. You can buy a OEM from Acer or a generic replacement on eBay, Amazon, etc.

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.

Answer:how to replace xp with 7 on Acer aspire netbook

Your windows & license will not allow you to install on another machine while the first is still working i.e. one machine at a time for a retail copy of windows, OEM licenses die with the machine.Don't worry about lack of support for XP from MS there will be enough support from forums like this to keep XP going for the life of the laptop. :0)

I bought this laptop in March 2015. This laptop come with 1TB HDD. I wanted to replace HDD to SSD but I called service center (Highpoint Service), Acer technician told me that there is no way to replace with SSD because the port is different, no matter what SSD also can't compatible with this laptop's HDD port.  This make me very confuse because I search around google, replace with SSD is totally possible.  So I am here to ask for advise. Hope can get an answer. Thank you. Edited: My laptop model: Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition (VN7-591G)- Core i7 4710Q- 12GB DDR3 RAM- 1TB HDD- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M

Answer:Acer Aspire V15 Nitro replace HDD to SSD

you have 2 options on your laptop:1) switch the 1TB HDD to an SSD2) add a SSD on M2 factory form on its slot (top left side, near the fan), so you can have both HDD and SSD installed about the second option, other users did it and sometimes they had some issues on saving the SSD as first bootable device (or window boot manager), since the BIOS tries to boot from SATA port.you can force it, pressing F12 at boot and selecting the proper boot device. it's up to you.

Answer:Replace Vista with XP on Acer aspire

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.

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

Answer: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.

Hi,You can upgrade the Atheros card with an Intel N7260(up to 300Mbps) or if you have AC capable router, get an Intel AC7260 card( up to 867Mbps). Intel cards offer decent performance.

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.

Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted anything.



I have a friends laptop I offered to help fix.
I don't remember the exact model, but it's an Acer Aspire One. Small older computer.

For whatever reason the keyboard stopped working properly. I disabled the keyboard drivers and they updated when the computer restarted. that didn't help. I also tried a side keyboard, that doesn't work well either. i did the number lock function fn+11, that doesn't work. The keyboard works some times and most the time it doesn't.

I went into the keyboard setting and tried resting it there and I went into the bios to see if anything was disabled, but everything was okay. i went even further, I unhook the keyboard from the laptop and tried using the side keyboard again and same problem. some times the computer starts acting weird. I go into the Internet(pretty much anything that has to do with typing) random numbers and letters start typing with the laptop keyboard and my side keyboard.

What can I do to fix it? I tried everything, I'm not sure if it's fixable. if i missed something ill reply as soon as i can.

Answer:Acer Aspire One Keyboard failed

Those can be really hard to fix. Youtube might have tear apart guides. But its better to just hook up a bluetooth or usb keyboard to it.

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 )
 

Answer: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.

Answer:Is the a backlit keyboard for an Acer Aspire E5-77...

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.

Hi, newbi here, hello

I have an Acer Aspire One notebook. Two months ago I very stupidly spilled my cider onto my Acer, like a ninja I immediatley turned it upside down to dry out, I havent touched it untill this week.
It starts up, makes a high pitched noise until the windows start up, then shuts up. Key board not working very good, hit and miss as to whether keys work.
I plugged in another keyboard and this has been working until now.
I've tried re-booting but this has not done anything.
Now if I do manage to open anything, I cant do anymore than that, the mouse is working ok.
Is there anything I could do or should I just bin it.
Oh, and there arent any tech minded peeps in this houshold. :-o
 

Answer:Keyboard not responding on Acer Aspire One

One thing I can say, is the Sony Vaio has a very nice rubberized keyboard.

IF you are capable, I would take it apart, and THOROUGHLY clean it.

Other thing that bears mentioning, if it is possible to pull the battery from your laptop/netbook, pull it IMMEDIATELY should you spill any liquids on it.

That kind of goes for ANY piece of battery powered hardware.

(i'm going to try and explain this the best i can)My Acer Aspire E15 laptop's keyboard has stopped working so I'm typing this with an external keyboard. I've only had this laptop it for a little over a year and having the keyboard just stop working is very dissapointing and a little frustrating. Anyway, I was wondering if there was any possibility of getting this repaired, because I've been informed that the keyboards of these laptops are connected to the motherboard in a way that would require getting a whole new motherboard just to replace the keyboard. I don't know if this is true or if there is anyway to repair my keyboard without replacing the whole **bleep** motherboard, so if anyone knows it would be awesome if you could help me out. 

Answer:Acer Aspire E15 keyboard not working?

Not sure where they got that info. However you can replace the keyboard. That does take some doing. But I think a person would most likely replace the whole top part. That is track pad and all. I would say look on eBay for you type and see if they have any.When you take apart you remove power, battery, 14 or 16 screws from the bottom. Remove drive from the bay. Use old credit card to separate the 2 half. Then there is some ribbon cables that would need to be removed carefully. If you got the whole thing. Then put in New one same way you took out old. However if you just got the keyboard you will bee to take out 8 to 10 more screws peeling tape from the ribbon cables and to access the small screws then the keyboard can be removed. For me I would try and find whole top plate would be less work.James

I have had a problem with my aspire R14 laptop since first getting it a month ago.  When I press a key in a certain are of the keyboard the whole keyboard bounces up and down.  The problems is most noticible on the 7,8,9,u,i,o keys and is less noticible on the keys around those keys.  It is hard to type because those keys respond differently. If I press down on the laptop case above the keyboard all those keys respond just like the other keys.  So I think the problem is that the keyboard and/or case are not secured well in that area.  Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

Answer:Acer Aspire keyboard is not working

When Safe Mode works properly but Normal Mode does not, it typically means that a driver or some software has just been installed that is interfering with Normal Mode.The types of software that can do that are drivers, antivirus products, third-party firewall products, CD/DVD burning software or virtual CD/DVD software.If you can remember installing anything like that, uninstall it in Safe Mode then restart.

Hi GuysI own an acer aspire one v5-121 netbook ( 1 Ghz Amd Dual Core , 2 Gigs Ram , 500 GB HDD , 11.6" ) .Some of the keys on the netbook are malfunctioning . For example , pressing "Down Arrow" shows the digit "1" . So basically , one cannot move down a list of items in windows explorer using the down arrow - and it remains the same in all kinds of application - in the browser , while playing games etc . Simlarly other keys like "Delete" and "Insert" are also malfunctioning .  Another key that is working in an undesirable manner is the "Q" key . Whenever I use the Q key , for eg. in microsoft word , this "q" alphabet jumps to the starting position of the word which I were typing .  So all this makes the netbook almost un-usable for academic needs & beats my purpose .  Hope I can find the right solution to this problem here .

Maybe it was because the battery ran out. In my defense, it should've been put somewhere visible. In any case, suddenly keys won't work. I can't use the left shift, D, Z, V, N, L and who knows what else. I've done a virus scan and a malware scan and both turned out fine. The only other options I can think of right now are looking for a way to boot in safe mode, finding where the screws are in this thing, or wait for tomorrow to get some compressed air, even though the odds of all those keys getting jammed up by magic flying crumbs seems extremely thin. On a side note, a few weeks before, it would suddenly get stuck on random when I type. Something would turn into sssssssssommeeeeeethiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing. It's even worse when you try to correcr it, you'd sometimes end up deleting everything before that word. Edit: Did a run on keyboardtester.comThe faulty keys make a symmetrical layout with the keyboard. "D K Z V N ." and the up and right arrow key.That can't be a coincidence. Aliens?

Hello, A few months ago I began to have issues with my Acer Aspire V3-571G-9435 where certain keys would intermittently stop working. Most often it would be the "A" key, along with less frequently the "C" and "Z" keys, and somtimes other keys. Within a minute or so they would start working again. A couple weeks ago, however, several of the keys, including the "A" "C" "Z" "F" "," "." and some other keys stopped working altogether (all at once). Following some guides I found online, I took the laptop apart and was able to take the keyboard ribbon cable out of its connector and put it back in, thinking it may be a loose connection issue. However, this did not fix the issue. I went online and ordered a new keyboard from Amazon, thinking the keyboard itself might be broken. After installing the new keyboard however, and entirely NEW set of keys have stopped working, including "J" "Q" "T" "U" "P" "1" and a few other keys. (However most of the keys that weren't working previously are working again). Does anyone have any other suggestions about what I should do? I've been using an external USB keyboard, which works fine, except obviously portability is sacrificed. I'm unsure if this is a hardware or software issue, as a brand new keyboard still isn't working properly. Could there still be something wrong with the connection? Is there a possible software/diver issue? Thanks for any help.

So, when I try to use the keyboard to type, the text input will freeze. It refuses to process my typing onto the screen for a few seconds, and then releases, and then freezes again; it goes on and off like this the entire time i try to type (This includes typing in a word document, typing into google, etc). The screen itself won't freeze, and everything else seems to be working fine, including the on-screen keyboard. The trackpad will freeze with the keyboard as well when this happens. Sometimes a little notification in the top left corner of my screen appears stating that the screen rotation is on, but not always. I think this means that when I type the computer gets confused, or something shakes inside, that throws off the alignment and thinks that I have rotated the screen in tablet mode mor something...  I have tried updating the drivers in my computer, and I have tried locking the computer screen as a landscape to prevent the notification, but it still freezes the keyboard.  Does anyone know what to do with this!? I can't do any of my homework with the keyboard constantly glitching on me...
