Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop
This is a common complaint with the 5570Z sold at Best Buy. Words such as wood drop the second letter and become wod. Number sequences like 122455 become 1245. Acer will not recognize the issue. The problem does not appear when a plug-in keyboard is used.
See the above abemore.blogspot link for details.

This has turned out to be defective hardware. Myself and another have had this issue resolved by replacing hardware.

Although this does sound like a keyboard mechanical problem, I'd suggest that you contact Acer support via this link:
In the lower right hand corner of the support and service block, click on "email Support" and ask your question. I am aware of a BIOS memory flash that they came up with for one of their Travelmates, so maybe they have something similar for your model.
Since this seems to be a common problem, I'd doubt that replacing the keyboard would do much to fix the problem. Other than that, maybe you'll just have to type slower when using that keyboard? ;o(
