Hello
The assainged key for 'hash" is "SHIFT - 3" If it showas any other symbol than this, the inside membrane of the keyboard is faulty. You should contact the deler or Acer service center to make it right. OK.

How do I get the pound symbol on my keyboard ?


If your Operating System is MS Windows, go to Start / Control panel / Regional Settings (or Region and Language for Win7) / Keyboards and Languages then add the English/UK keyboard or simply hold the ALT key and type 0163 from the numeric keyboard.

I lost my question mark -- what do I press to get it back


Press your FN key.
If you look at your Keyboard on a laptop you'll see that certain keys have more than 1 symbol on them.
The FN key brings these secondary symbols to life as live keys and pressing it again will restore original function to the keyboard.

Acer aspire one zg5 some keys fails to display


There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

I have an acer aspire 5610 laptop. Some of the keys on the keyboard do different things to what the symbol on them represents: the @ symbol looks like its near the 'enter' key, but i have to hold down...


You have your keyboard set as US. If you go into control panel, open Regional and Language options and change all of the settings with a country to UK. That will solve your problem.
