I will assume you are using a computer with Windows operating system? Windows 7 for example. You need to use System Restore, this way you can take the computer back to a time when it was healthy.
Click on the Windows icon on your Desk top screen
In the box "search programs and files" enter
Follow the instructions. Your computer will tell you a date you can restore to. Go back a few weeks on the calendar, and be patient as it takes you through the process.
Very easy, and works well

click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP click start right click on my computer select open Right click the icon of yourusb drive (It should be E:/ or something) Click Properties in the menu that comes up Click the Sharing tab Click permissions And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
First try hitting the FN(function key) + numlock, if that didnt help try FN + F11(have heard some models use this instead)
If that doesnt work you can go to Programs>Acer >Acer eRecovery Management
choose "yes" at the prompt then, a window gives you the options to Backup, Restore, Settings, or Help. Click on Restore. This will give you a choice of Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults, Restore Operating System and Retain User Data, or Reinstall Drivers or Applications.
Pick Operating System and Retain User Data. Just follow instructions from there.
Slow performance can be from many different problems. The keyboard may be fine but the PC may have a problem. Except for a wireless keyboard which may have a low battery or obstructed receiver problem.
First go to START / Programs / System Tools / System Restore. Select SET RESTORE POINT and give it a name. This will let you restore your system to the current condition if anything goes wrong.
Try downloading "CCleaner" from www.download.com (it's FREE). Install it and let it clean up your Windows and your Registry. (You might de-select Cookies option to preserve your logins saved on your Internet browser) It will offer to save original Registry before cleaning it up. In most cases this will resolve slow performance from outdated Windows instructions and Registry errors.
Next go to My Computer / Right click on C drive (boot drive) and select Properties. Go to Tools and select Defrag Drive. If problem is serious you should also run Check Disk and select to make automatic repairs. These programs will take some time to run.
If the problem still persists, update and run your Anti-Virus software. If you do not have Anti-Virus software go to www.download.com and select AVG Free from the right hand column. This is a very good Free Anti-Virus software.
Disclaimer: The programs I recommend are suggested because they are free and very easy for the computer novice to use. I have no financial interest in these programs. I recommend and use these programs in my computer repair business.
icon on the desktop. Click the "Change a Setting" choice in the left column. In the window that appears, double-click the "Keyboard" icon. This dialog box handles all settings for your current keyboard. Another path to the control panel is to click the "Start" button at the bottom left of the screen. Roll the mouse pointer up to "Settings" and click "Control Panel."
Reset the character repeat settings. The speed of character repeat and the delay before repeating starts is adjustable with sliding level indicators. Click on the adjuster and hold your finger on the mouse button to drag the adjustment left or right.
Change the cursor blink rate. A faster blink helps to locate the cursor while moving it with the arrow keys. Change the blink rate by dragging the slide to the left or right for slower or faster.
Enable the keyboard to accommodate one-handed typing or foreign languages. Click on the "Input Locales" tab near the top of the dialog box. Click the "Add" button for choices of available languages. Click the "Properties" button for choices to include Dr. Dvorak’s keyboard layouts for two-handed typing or single-handed typing with either hand.
Identify and correct keyboard malfunctions. Click the "Hardware" tab on the dialog box. The current keyboard will be listed under devices. The functioning status of the keyboard is displayed, and a troubleshoot button is active for use anytime. Make a first attempt to resolve keyboard problems by clicking this button.

Click the "Start" button.
Click on "Help and Support". There's a blue circle with a question mark in it next to the name.
Click on "Undo changes to your computer with "System Restore".

Click on "Restore my computer to an earlier time". Then click "Next" at the bottom of the dialog box.
You will be supplied with a cal ender, from which to choose a previous date to restore to. I always choose the last date that my computer was still running properly.
You will see a warning page telling to shut down any open programs. The messages also assure you that you won't lose any information, and that the restore is completely reversible. Windows will shut down your computer, and start it back up with the settings that were in effect on the date and time that you restored to.
