The most important thing in replacing the keyboard is do not force anything. If it will not come apart the way you think it does, look at it again. When you get to the cable latch, be very careful. If you break that you are hosed. As far as I know you cannot buy just that part. Most of them will pop up on the front edge. Some of them do slide out though.

 :ty I just ordered one from Amazon Prime. It will be here Friday. I saw the instructions on how to install. I think I can do it myself.

Cheers,

When you remove the onboard keyboard, you can try booting it normally. I suspect that something is shorting out in the onboard keyboard and is causing a false signal that is causing the real problem.  You can get a new keyboard from EBay for $16.00

My son-in-law will help me do it. I know the keyboard is bad. it was cheaper to buy a $7 external one then replace. Curious that even with external attached, the other keyboard is needed to load windows. I also have it connected to an external monitor. Should I try booting up without external monitor to check out it out.

 Can you correct the spelling on my original post, :o2

I think I see the problem, they are related.
F5 is supposed to set the boot menu to enabled. But Fn+F5 switches you to an external monitor.

I think you have a bad keyboard. You need to remove it. Are you mechanically inclined? Have you ever worked on the inside of a computer?

It is an acer Aspire 4743. The keyboard stopped working so it is hooked up to an external keyboard. When it boots windows wont load until I hit F5 on the acer keyboard. Hitting  F5 key on external does nothing. Once it is uploaded  JJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJ goes across any space where I want to fill in until I hit backspace key on acer keyboard. After that everything works normally.
