If you can boot up with the external USB hard drive on your Acer, then use a working computer and copy the Windows installation CD onto the external hard disk then connect the USB externak hard disk to the USB port on your Acer and boot up using the external hard drive.

If the plastic hinges and the tiny rubber press contact are still on the keyboard, you can align the key over the plastic hinge and press firmly down until you hear the key click back in place.
You can purchase a replacement keyboard from several companies on the Internet. I purchased one from Yall Store - Use this link
You can use a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port.

if you can get an external cd/dvd drive from a friend, then you could solve the problem.
other solutions would mean that you will reinstall windows again. This takes more time and has a few tricks to be done from a flash drive.

To change the region code on your DVD player go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager and expand the DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on your DVD drive and click on Properties then click on DVD Region tab. You will see the number of changes remaining (you can only change the region code 4 times and then it locks on the last region change and no further change is available). You will see the Current Region and You can change the region in the New Region box.
If you have run out of changes then you have a problem, this can be fixed. The hardest way is to upgrade the firmware on the DVD drive to a region free firmware BUT if you install the wrong firmware or stuff up the upgrade your DVD drive will be a piece of junk.
The best way is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. There may be some free software on the Internet but I use DVD Region Free + CSS Free from DVD Idle, it not expensive and I have no problem viewing DVDs from any region.
Use this link to DVD Idle WEB site.

There should not be a password set in the BIOS unless you set it up with one. You can clear the BIOS to BRAND NEW state. Acer can guide you through this if it is under warranty. If it is not, write back and I will help you do this.

The Aspire One is a netbook produced by
Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional
hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a
peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate
