    This is usually caused by Regional and Language settings in control

    Navigate to Control Panel -> Regional and Language options -> Click on
    Languages tab.

    Click on Details button under "Text services and input languages".
    Choose the required country and set it as your default. e.g. Canada and
    US keyboards have @ on 2 and " on ' key. UK keyboards have vice versa

The video card is not working.

If you can afford mother board change than go for it, but if not care fully follow the instructions. 1. open the mother board. 2. remove the heat sink. 3. see the nvidia MCP67MV chip. 4. Heat it with Torch, mobile lamination gun or you can use SMD soldering Station. 5. Boot it!
But this method only can stay for a month.!!!

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.
You can purchase a replacement keyboard from several companies on the Internet. I purchased one from Yall Store - Use this link
You can use a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port.

Acer aspire 4520 just won't turn on

You should have 12 months guarantee when you bought the laptop so i'd take it back to the shop you purchased it from. Otherwise if it is the battery then you can buy a cheap replacement on ebay.
