Re: ? or ?

Double check that everything is US-english for the keyboard. go to START>>>control panel>>>regional and language options. Make sure everything in the first screen is go to the LANGUAGE tab go to DETAILS. look to see what the keyboard language is. If set on US change it to something the settings go back in and change it to US then save again. Check everything else make sure its US.

My first suggestion is to make sure your Shift key is working, by typing capital letters. The next thing I would do is make sure your drivers are updating. Here is the ACER site to check for updates:

How can i override the green keys; for ex. the question mark key and apostrophe

Try left alt and shift key together. If that does not work go to control panel then region and language settlings then keyboard options. One of the tabs in there should tell you what keys you have to enter to switch languages.

I cant use the right apostrophe key

most likely its the connector on the motherboard, if its not making connection on certain pins on the connection, then same thing will happen, try can air on the connection area, see if that helps.

Symbols gone crazy

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.
