Question about Acer NSK8458AN Keyboard
I discovered this same problem when I couldn't get quote marks or apostrophe. Finally sat down and went through the entire keyboard straight, while pushing Shift and while pushing Fn. Discovered that almost none of the symbol keys is where it should be. I did find quote marks and apostrophe, but have to hit Shift comma and Shift period, to get them. Have been in touch with Acer techs, but nothing they've suggested has worked (removing and replacing battery), reinstalling keyboard driver, installing some chipshift program or something like that. I've also checked the number lock and shift lock and they were not on. Sticky keys and toggle keys were off. language was set for Canadian English, and though I tried British and US English, neither worked. Nothing spilled on the keyboard, and nothing was installed other than Firefox browser.
The keyboard appears to be defective, but if you replace it and you still have issues, then the matrixing chip on the motherboard is bad and you will have to change the motherboard as well. Let me know, and vote.
