  1. is it possible to take that black plate off to replace keyboard and is it easy?

    1. Hi Harry, take a look a my reply to Kevin down below. I did it yesterday and it wasn’t too hard, but would have been a lot easier if it were screws instead of plastic melt rivets. And FYI this was on a V5-573p-9899 with the US backlit keyboard

  2. Great guide, but if you have any information on removing the keyboard that would be very useful!

  3. Hello, i have one question. Where screen cable was conected on motherboard? I rewatched pictures 5 times and still dont get it.

    1. please check acer-aspire-v5-573g-disassembly-6.jpg, under the white label, beside the heatsink, you can find the lcd cable connector

    1. Hey Harry & Kevin, about the keyboard, I did this yesterday:

      Look at the 2nd to last picture, the closeup of the top half of the case after the motherboard is removed. The black plastic has a sticky backing, peel off the top and left side where it is stuck to the plastic chassis starting at the two foil tape pieces at the top. Once that’s peeled back you should have access to all the plastic melt rivets that hold the metal tray to the chassis. I snipped them off using some flat head pliers, and you won’t need to snip all of them – there’s some that connect the metal tray to little brackets along the left and right sides. You only need to snip the ones holding the metal tray onto the plastic chassis. Once you have all the rivets broken you can pull off the metal tray and then remove/reinstall the keyboard. I then used electrical tape and some finesse to reassemble the top half and secure the metal tray to it as best as possible. The motherboard screws and hinge screws hold the assembly and black plastic layers in place, but the tape helped hold the keyboard in place at the edges. It’s not 100% but very very close and much better that paying for the $150+ full top tray assembly. I hope this helps!

      1. Hey! In terms of replacing the keyboard, was that with the backlight keyboard?? Because that is what I have and would that be the same process as what you have stated above?? Thanks!

  4. Yeah, i have a V5-573G-54208G75aii and i’m trying to replace the LCD screen unit, could you expand upon that process??
