Problem 3, Acer Aspire One: One key

After working, one of the keys seems to be stuck, I press it softly and it does not write, it needs a stronger pressure. Boy, how annoying it is to have such a key, in conventional keyboards it was easier to buy a new keyboard than to repair a key, but in the case of a laptop this is not so simple.

You have to start by seeing what key it is, for example, if it is the scroll arrows, the letter x, z, c, s, f, a, d, or the space bar and you have kids who use the computer; it may be due to the excessive use of these keys in games. Many children are very irresponsible, even hitting the keys when they lose the game or believe that hitting the shot harder will be more damaging.

Repair-keyboard-key-1 If it is not a question of these pieces, it is certain that something is in the way, because the keys of the Aspire One They are a small plastic shell mounted on a metal plate that forces upwards, their simple design does not suggest that it is damaged by normal use. 

To solve it, with a tweezers the key is extracted, pulling it off at one end, soft but firm. First from above, pulling it to the corner, then down, from the bottom, pulling it.

Guess it was: one one. And I'm not talking about some mysterious object, a fucking nail of those that fly away when you cut them.

And as such it could be affecting objects that frequently fall there, such as hairs, crumbs, seed husks, etc. Then the piece is set firmly, and pressed with the finger a little hard. If this is not resolved, there is no choice but to find the workshop.
