You cannot replace the keys themselves, you will have to replace the entire keyboard. Get in touch with acer support at acer.com and you can order a new one from them, they're really easy to replace.
Please rate, thanks!

Letter does not work on keyboard


You can try using compressed air can to clean the keyboard, maybe that will fix it. But if it's caused by wear and tear or you have spilled some liquid on the keyboard, you need to buy a replacement.
A keyboard for your laptop is around 17$ with free shipping:

What is a suggested way of toutching up the lettering on a computer keyboard key top?


you can look on ebay for the keys, look for your specific laptop model because keyboards tend to vary from one to the other. you can use white out or something along those lines and then put a clear layer of nail polish over it, but anything you do like that would look kind of tacky imho, so i'd just purchase new keys.

Keyboard sticking


Hello, A sticky keyboard can sometimes be fixed by removing the key as you've done, but sometime the trouble lies deeper in the keyboard. There are small contacts that can wear out or get built up with a surface film. Might be time to replace the whole keyboard. It's not that hard if you have the aptitude and they do come out and go in as a complete unit. Cost for a new one can be from $20 - 50. Try looking on ebay & the link below.
Good luck, mpawlak908

Few letters are not working on keyboard


Keyboard is going bad on you since so few letters are working now. Get the keyboard replaced with a known working one or a brand new one.

Cannot type certain letters


Hi,

Verify that the key is not working in more than one application. It is possible that some keys may not be used in all programs. This generally always applies to the Function keys F1 through F12. If not all keys are working in all programs and you have Windows, attempt to boot the computer to a MS-DOS prompt or Safe Mode and test the keyboard in DOS.

If it appears that a substance has been spilt into the computer.

If any type of liquid has been spilt within the keyboard you can attempt to clean it . however, because of the dramatic decrease of cost with computer keyboards, it is recommended that you simply replace the keyboard to help prevent frustration and possibility of failure again in the future.

Thanks,
CF

The letters 'wertyuiolhgacbnms' have worn off the key pads. Replacement keypads are £1.50 each on the one website I visited - I would be better off buying a new keyboard! Can I just get stick on...


Try your local craft store they sell "dry Transfer" lettering that you rub on. Then take clear nail polish and cover it with a thin coat to stop them from wearing off.

There are 2 common problems for this.
1. Something got stuck under the keyboard of your laptop. Food scraps or Dirt and Grime build-up due to sweaty palms or fingers clean the keyboard.
2.The Membrane on your keyboard that act as a switch cold be shorted due to wear and tear or heavy key presses. Have your keyboard replaced.

Other problems could be cracked board if you happen to lean or put heavy stuff over the keyboard and cracked ribbon connector.
