Hey David, I had the same exact problem with my keyboard when I bought my Gateway computer in 2007. It didn't register some characters and the lag time was horrific. I ordered the same exact keyboard from Gateway( I was in the warranty phase still) and when I got the new keyboard it did the same exact thing!!!!!!!! I had to buy a different keyboard from Target. Just get any other keyboard and it will work. It's the keyboard beleive me. I even took it apart. Don't waste your time and just get a different brand.

It sounds to me like you have a faulty keyboard. You need to contact Acer, or the store where the laptop was purchased, and arrange for the laptop to be repaired. This should be covered under warranty, unless the machine has suffered any physical damage, such as a fluid spill.

    Keys do not reflect the correct characters

    In XP:

    If " = @ or viceversa - Goto control panel, regional settings and change keyboard layout to where ever you live (UK or US).

    Vista or Windows 7:

    Press F1 for the help section, type in regional settings and it will tell you how to change this :-)

    Does it type " by any chance when you press the @ key? if so this is usually because keyboard input is set to the wrong language in the regional & language settings are wrong in the control panel. try pressing the left alt key & shift at same time first this is a quick key to change between input languages.

    Keyboard problems

    dear bangaloreboy , this may be due to your shift key is having a problem. This is permanently pressed or the other key is having some problem . If you think shift key is not causing a problem please check the key board settings from contol pannel .

    I donot think this is caused by changing the operating system.

    Best Regards
