Are you 100% sure? I have Googled the details about the laptop you have given and looked at what should be the keyboard for that model, you should have a "ctrl" in the usual place according to my research.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your reply. But I'm afraid that I don't have a ctrl key. On the bottom left hand side of the keyboard I have Strg, (Fn) the apps symbol (the four squares) and Alt. Do you think I can use some other keys instead of ctrl? Thank you. My laptop is Acer Aspire E1-531"

    Hi, the "Strg" key is your "Ctrl" key. It sounds like you have a German keyboard.

The ctrl key


looking down on the keyboard the ctrl key is ALWAYS lowest row of keys, farthest to the left. It may have something else written on it but it is there.
A second ctrl key is 3rd from the right side of the space bar.

After you've used your laptop for an extended period of time its hard drive may become filled with files you don't want or even infected with malicious virus programs downloaded from the Internet. If you don't want to go through the folders on your laptop and manually delete each unnecessary file you can restore the computer to its original factory settings instead. Restoring a laptop wipes out any existing data and entirely reinstalls the operating system.

1.Place the operating system recovery CD that came with your computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.
2.Wait for the computer manufacturer's logo to pop up on the screen. Press the keyboard key that brings up the recovery menu, which is usually "F2," "F8," or "Ctrl" and "F11" pressed simultaneously.
3.Select the specific language you want the operating system to use from the menu at the top of the screen. Select "Next."
4.Choose the option labeled "PC Restore," "Repair Your Computer" or something similar. Click "Next."
5.Select "Restore" and then click "Enter" to start the process. Click "Restart" once the process has ended to boot the restored computer to its operating system.

Asus Netbook - Keyboard locked on numbers


The number lock key has been pressed, press the NumLk key to turn off the number keys. There is a LED light that turns on when the NumLk key is press, just like the Caps lock key.

The upside down display is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key.
Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key.
ALSO
To change the display from portrait to landscape
Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key.

sounds like a faulty keyboard to me, I recommend removing the keyboard, and blowing out the connector with a can of air and reinstalling the keyboard. if that does not work I would connect a USB keyboard to make sure it is not a setting. If a USB keyboard is working fine, replace the keyboard.

Generall there is a Fn Key somewhere, down by the Shift-CTRL-ALT Keys, or perhaps holding down the shift key, and tapping the required key will access the "Other" funtions of the keys.
