Re: key board button has come off
In most cases its as easy as centering the button back where it goes and pressing down on it until it snaps back into place. If on the first push it doesn't click back in the try pushing down and wiggling the key back and forth a little as you push.

I would suggest (you will not like this but I am honest) having a shop look at it to see if can fix or replace the entire keyboard---may cost some money but cheaper than the unit being replaced.
Acer for example makes laptops for Gateway--I have two that were less than the same ACER model. My only complaint with mine is that in less than a year I can see the wear marks on the most used buttons--everything is getting cheaper.
A year ago a friend had to have the keyboard replaced (spill) and I searched EBAY and found a source in Hong Kong with brand new original ones---27 dollars including shipping--took me 30 minutes to replace entire board.
Let me know if I helped as I do this here for free.

Not so sure on the touch pad, but the keyboard is easy to remove. Make sure the laptop is switched off first.
There are a series of little clips holding the keyboard on. Look along the top above the F keys you will see 3 or 4 little clips, push each of them in and up (away from the keyboard) using something thin and blunt so as not to cause any damage.
There will also be some little clips each side of the keyboard, these do not push in, you need to manoeuvre the keyboard past these. Lift the keyboard from the top as it slots into some grooves at the bottom.There will be a ribbon cable connecting it to your laptop, this is easilyundone and the keyboard is off.
If you are receiving little shock is obviusly that something wrong in the power circuit of your motherboard. This malfunction could be also affecting your keyboard performance. Start replacing parts without know exaclty which is the problem is not a good idea. There are several causes, related to this issue. Your laptop must be serviced
1. you need to remove the power cover (if you see the power button, that what i mean).
2. after you remove that cover, you will see 2 screw that hold the keyboard. Remove both screws.
3. Remove keyboard and replace it with new keyboard.
1. Remove 3 screw from top of laptop. this screw hold power cover (cover which have power button).
2. Remove power cover.
3. remove 2 scews that hold keyboard.
4. that's all, you can take keyboard out from laptop.
