How can I get to and remove the touchpad buttons on my laptop in order to try and clean them and the area around the buttons?

I have an Acer laptop and I think I have a hardware problem where something is wrong with the laptop mouse keys.

I've found some tips/pictures about how to remove/replace the keyboard, but nothing about the touchpad buttons.

You will have to disassemble the entire laptop to get at that.

  • The first step is removing the bezel above the keyboard.
  • Then remove all screws from the bottom of the laptop.
  • Then carefully pry the bottom panel off.
  • The touchpad should be exposed.
