Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop ?

How do i unstick keys, for an acer aspire 5532? The "n" key is sticking, and I have to push hard to get it to work. Can i remove it, and then clean undereath it? Or do I have to work aroud it? I don't know if there is a spill or if there is something jammed underneath.


Answers :

On most models of laptops, you can remove the cover for the joints that hold on the LCD and underneath you'll find a few screws that can be removed to allow for the keyboard to be taken out, and I would subjest not using any strong cleaners for when you take the keyboard off. if the cleaner is too strong, it might break the keyboard and also remove the painted letters and numbers on the keys =P. when cleaning the board, I recommend rubbing alcohol and a thin cloth to get under the keys. The reason being that the alcohol evaporates within 40 seconds to 80 seconds after application thus keeping the logic unit from becoming wet. That way you'll be back in business not long after you finish cleaning.

hope that helped, good luck
