The video description says it also applies to the AS5252 model. Just remember to remove the battery before removing the keyboard.

In fact I haven't been able to find a video showing KB replacement for this model. Nor have I been able to download a pdf manual so that I can look-up the disassemble of keyboard.
So yes I am still unsure if it is worth pouring more time into this versus just selling/donating it broken. I see the numbers you provided. May just sell it as it is.
One thing I do know is that I am not buying any keyboard until I find instructions on keyboard replacement for this specific model or similar models because hardware ain't my forte and I'll probably mess it up if I don't have instructions. Some links are blocked at work. So going to try download pdf manual from home and see if it explains keyboard disassembly.

You gave him/her the link, I gave the monetary values and made it clear that the laptop is more valuable when repaired, and it's as if we wrote our replies in Greek.
The only thing left for the OP is to go see my friend Google, for precise instructions as to how to change/replace the keyboard.
PS: Your video link didn't come through.

In your position, I'd find a use for it. Save that, I think the best thing you can do is spend the marginal amount of cash/time to replace the keyboard and then donate it to someone in need.

|komondor||did you not read my post? I included a place to buy the keyboard and a video on how to replace it, do you want me to come to your house to do it?|

I guess my question was is it worth to fix it and sell it or justs ell it. I don't need this. I contacted Amex extended warranty and they just refunded me the purchase price and asked me to throw or do whatever with the unit.
It works ok with a USB keyboard. Wonder how hard it is going to be to get a replacement keyboard, fix this and sell it versus selling as it is. Also no guarantee that a replacement keyboard will solve the issue too :-(
Anwyays going to do some searcha round to see how hard it is to take out the keyboard

There's no doubt that the value of the laptop with the fixed keyboard, will rise more than the $20 it costs you to buy it.
It's not a very desirable laptop, because of the weak processor, low amount of ram (although sufficient) and the tiny hard drive.
On a good day, you can find Acer laptops of a similar nature for $250, so if yours is in good condition (I mean the looks, not all scratched up) it should fetch $100.
As is, I'd say $50.
That's what I would call fair value pricing, but there are a lot of suckers out there, and you might increase both prices by $50, just by asking for it.

they are usually easy to replace cost is less than 20.00
this video should show you how i have done about 6 Dells

Have you looked up what a replacement keyboard costs?
The simple answer is to just get a usb keyboard for $12 and use that.

Sale price for a laptop with some keys not working
A very basic laptop I bought for my parents, no longer works due to many keys on the keyboard(F2 to enter BIOS, One of the enter keys, Many alphabets, backSapce etc.) not working
tHIS IS THE MODEL -> http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Acer-...Id=1504141
Is this even worth repairing? If I sell it with the keys not functioning, what is a good price to ask for?
