Hi there
the default language for the keyboard has changed.
look at the blue bar at the bottom of the screen
on the right hand side you will see the letters EN
click on them and select engkish uk as the default language
you can delete any others and restart the computer

hope this helps
if it does please leave feedback

The assainged key for 'hash" is "SHIFT - 3" If it showas any other symbol than this, the inside membrane of the keyboard is faulty. You should contact the deler or Acer service center to make it right. OK.

this means that your number lock is turned on.

there is a Fn key on the board. hold that and look for the number lock key and press it. each system is different so it will be either NumLk, NumLock, or a 1 with a lock symbol. Acer generally places this on a F key many times F7.

 Wrong keyboard mapping.
Start / Control Panel / Regional and Languages Options / Languages / Details / in there select the keyboard arrangement you want - most likely the english EN one.

You have your keyboard set as US. If you go into control panel, open Regional and Language options and change all of the settings with a country to UK. That will solve your problem.

Cant get pound sign to work or other symbols seem to be in wrong place


you need to check your keyboard language settings as it sounds like it is set to US english

go to regional settings and check ( it is on a button in one of the sub pages... you really need to check everything)

although I understand that you have already checked this, this is the ONLY thing that causes this so you have missed something
