Thanks for the help but I mistyped . I lost my Keyboard Manual/Guide need it to reprogram the keys that don't work.

There are many software key re-mappers and you can do it, but keep in mind your primary language settings and code-page settings. You can get unpredictable results on printing, so take care.

When pressing numbers and or letters they *** out like 5f or hit space this **** up ; not numlock please help acer note pad

Check that the keyboard you have is in the language you want to use and that the keyboard language is the correct one for you.
From what you describe though, it looks like you might have had liquid damage to the keyboard, which is causing the mistyping of characters. In this case, you will need to fit a replacement keyboard.

It wont take my credit card

You're not telling much with this, so there can be a handful of reasons:
- You used your credit card with another paypal account
- You're mistyping some numbers
- your bank/country is not doing business with Paypal
You may want to check if your card has the three-digit code on the back, next to the signature field. Paypal wont do business with cards that dont have this code, think it's CVV code or alike.
