    Excellent. I found holding the shift and ctrl buttons at the same time for 5 seconds worked for my problem.

    Have you tried a different keyboard?

    Do you know what Keyboard Language was chosen when the computer was set up? Which Operating System, XP or VIsta?



    You may just need to change the Regional and Language settings.

Oh this is a returning issue with my Canadian users. The keyboard is french, that is the one with the E letter things at the place you normally have the question mark. It is indeed a keyboard layout but it gets randomly selected. Saw this problem only on VISTA so I will describe how to do it in Vista.

Go to Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages, Change Keyboards. Here you will see all keyboard layouts installed. Make sure you remove any that you do not need or if you see the french one even, remove that by selecting the one causing you problem and choose Remove.

If you don't remove the keyboard map, when this switch happens, you'll have to exit the application you're in (Outlook, for example), change keyboards, and restart the app. Changing keyboards without restarting the app doesn't change the mapping.

If the above solution for whatever reason does not work, just push Shift and Ctrl at the same time, hold it pushed for about 5-10 seconds and let go at the same time. You have to be in the active window (the application in which you tried to type and it gave you E-s instead of ?-s) for this to work. But please try my first suggestion first with the keyboard layouts because I am confident that is your problem.

Please rate if this solution was helpfull. :)

engo deshabilitadad wireless network and can not find the drivers windows7 teengo is a acer aspire 4520
Your Acer computer has a networking card installed so that it can connect to a wireless local area network (LAN) to share files or surf the Web.
By using a wireless network, you can bypass the need to run cables between different rooms in your office or home.
To set up a wireless LAN, you will need to change settings in the computer's operating system and use the eNet Management software that Acer provided.

Connect an Ethernet cable to the "Wide Area Network" port on the back end of your wireless router.
Attach the other end of the cable to the Ethernet port on the back end of your high-speed modem.
nsert the installation disc that came with the wireless router into your Acer computer's disc drive.
Follow the on-screen installation instructions.
Access the Acer's Start menu and open the Control Panel.
Click "Network and Sharing Center," and then choose the "Set up a new connection or network" link.
Choose "Set up a new network" and then "Next."
Enter a name for your local area network, such as "Home" or "My Network," into the "Network Name" text field.
Type a password for your network in the "Security Key" text box and click "Next."
Click "Finish." Right-click the "Acer eNet Management" icon in the Windows task bar.
Scroll to "Available WLANs" and then click the name of the network that you chose earlier.

Type in the password you chose earlier and click "OK" to connect your Acer to the Wireless LAN.
You only need to check the BIOS if you cant install the driver
Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to
press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys navigate to integrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its

2 keys have come off acer aspire 4520


If the plastic hinges and the tiny rubber press contact are still on the keyboard, you can align the key over the plastic hinge and press firmly down until you hear the key click back in place.
OR
You can purchase a replacement keyboard from several companies on the Internet. I purchased one from Yall Store - Use this link

Can't get the question mark to work


Have you tried using this trick:
Press "Alt" button (and don't release), then press "6" (don't release "Alt") and then "3" (don't release "Alt"). After all the combination has been made you can release "Alt". Do you get your question mark or... E or e again?
By the way, all the ASCII codes can be found here:
