Re: ACER 5620 Extensa keyboard problem.
Hi, your Laptop has a integrated keypad. You or someone else might of turned this on, thankfully it is easily fixed. Just follow these steps,
1. Find and press the "Fn" key.
2. Find the F11 key there should be in blue letters "NumLk"
3. Press F11 while holding down the Fn key.
This should turn off the integrated keypad
Hope this works
Hi re connect the usb keyboard u used and u would discover the number lock is on. it is found above the 7 key on the right side of the keyboard. press the number lock to switch it off and remove the usb keyboard. You could go ahead and try the keyboard on your laptop it should work just fine

Unless I'm missing something, just put the key back where it belongs. Push down hard, and it'll snap back into its place. If this doesn't work, check the underside of the key. If you see broken plastic, you'll probably have to find a new key. Acer laptops seem to have a problem with keys coming out and breaking (just look at the number of times this question has been asked!)
Once clean your Laptop with a smooth cloth and try to clean the edges of your Laptop keyboard and see that all you setting are normal and default in your control panel settings and this above not work just reassemble the system i mean remove all the components and Re fit then you can solve the problem
Not sure what the specific model number for your computer is, but here are a few. They all look around $20
A good idea is to get a cloth (avoid tissues or paper wipes) and give that a spray with some form of window or screen cleaner and go over the keyboard a few times, for really sticky keys, gently remove them and give the underside and the base of the key a good wipe.
If you are unsure how to remove keys, please don't hesitate to reply (i will need the Model of the machine eg: acer extensa 5620)
Please don't spray the cleaner directly on the keyboard and dont use high grade cleaner as this can damage the keyboard
This problem is common with Acer Extensa seies . I've an Acer Extensa myself . and i always get this problem . In future i advice you to not use the touchpad . Just use an external mouse to prevent this to happen .
Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicating that the funtion keys are in use.
