Check out the default font setting in the control panel. If no good then please try unplug it and replug then power on Pc.

Check the status then. If no luck, then try with a new one. May be the keys are gone bad (also may try to clean it throuughly)

How do I access the question mark


All you have to do is hold the SHIFT key down and then press the BACKSLASH (/) key. This should allow you to access your question mark character.

Here is a link to an image of an ACER Keyboard:

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.

You can see the QUESTION MARK / BACKSLASH key near the lower right hand corner of the keyboard in that image.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

I cannot get backslash on logiboard keyboard


1) With your NUMLOCK on, hold the ALT key down and type 092 on your numeric keypad.  When you have NUMLOCK on, ALT and a 3-figure digit gives you special characters.  092 is the backslash on UK and Spanish keyboards, so hopefully it'll work for you.  If you get something different, you'll have to try different numbers until you find it

or 

2) In Start --> Programs --> Accessories there's a program called Character Map.  This gives you a list of available characters

or

3) copy and paste this one:  \

I just bought a brand new Acer Aspire One and have keyboard issue


It's most probably a shipping damage. The keyboard is connected to the mainboard using a very thin and very breakable plug. They use this kind of plus so that they can save up space. You should get another laptop or a full refund since it is not your fault.

Keyboard problem


You are probably typing it on word with a font that does not support those symbols. Open notepad and type the characters - your system should be working fine. (you can alternately try to use Arial font as an alternate)

Try changing the language from English(US) to English(UK)
The Yanks have not only a different language - but also a different keyboard layout to us Brits :-)
