Hi guys,

 

Hope this is the right section to ask in. Can anyone help me with a problem?

 

I've been using the same Acer Aspire 5750 for three years now and I've always HATED the keyboard on it. The keys aren't very sensitive and I type so lightly that I'm constantly accidentally missing out letters. It becomes infuriating after a while as I'm constantly correcting errors.

 

I've decided enough is enough (3 years later and I'm still not used to it) and I want to replace the keys. Can I buy a different set of keys and put them directly onto the existing keyboard or do I have to buy a completely new keyboard? If so, how do I know it will be compatible with my laptop?

 

Thanks in advance

If you purchase a USB keyboard or wireless keyboard your computer should have no problem recognizing it. Especially

standard, name brand ones such Microsoft, Logitech, etc. You don't have a PS2 jack so those won't work.

I won't suggest one because you are concerned about the 'touch typing' and for that you should check the comments

at sites like Amazon, Newegg, etc.

As for replacing the keyboard for a more sensitive touch type would be a question posed directly to Acer for an answer. In the meantime, if you don't mind using an external keyboard, a small profile wireless would be your best option. To find out if it meets your requirements for a sensitive touch type, you'll have to go to the retail stores and actually try them and see what feels best to you.
