I found the problem. The drivers needed for the keyboard are:
provided by Dritek System Inc. Version 1.3.00
I looked at the current drivers for the keyboard. Somehow the keyboard must have been reinstalled or drivers got corrupted. I did a system restore to a time before I installed some new hardware and drivers. Then I looked at the drivers for the keyboard through the control paned =>
hardware Tab =>
Standard keyboard =>
Driver Tab =>
And found that the drivers were different except for the last one in the above list
You can update the drivers. Do a search for the first one in the list and the second one in your windows directory(search for hidden files and system files). I found the files in my system32/drivers directory. You may also find it on the disks that came with the Acer.
I have looked on-line for the first one and could not find it. perhaps a better search term swould find it. I also looked on Ace rs site.
