My keyboard has suddenly become erratic.

Sometimes I cannot type in one letter. Then I may suddenly have lots and lots of a letter pouring out!! The only way around it is to hook up a USB connected keyboard. This works fine.

I have made sure there are no 'bits' under the keys.

Help please

Hi Manage

Thank you for giving your time to answer my query. It was much appreciated.

Very recently I replaced a broken screen in the Acer, and thought the keyboard problem may be caused by a badly replaced loop (is it a loop!).

I was hoping to replace the keyboard some day, as one key is missing. I did see your referred to video at that time, but after several triesI could not see how the six lugs were pressed out. The guy in the video makes it look effortless, & removes it in about 10 seconds! To have one supplied & fixed is £35.00, when I can get one for eight quid on Ebay.

It's usually called a ribbon cable. The 6 lugs clip under the cover, you need to lever them gently towards you to release them, it might be easier to start at one side and work across. If you have a piece of plastic or wood to do all the levering that's safer than using a metal screwdriver.Take care when releasing the cable, be gentle there too.
