I suggest you swapout the keyboard with one you know works right. If the keyboard works with the Acer than the other is defective. It wouldn't hurt to unplug & reseat your current keyboard just to make sure its connected correctly.

Had an external keyboard unplugged it now laptop keyboard wont work right

Having an external keyboard won't disable the internal one, they will just work side by side. After removing the external KB the internal one will usually still work. So the two things don't seem to be related.
Assuming you are under Windows, press Win+R and enter the following:
(press OK)
Make sure you don't have any yellow exclamation mark under the Keyboards section. If you don't, most likely your internal keyboard is bad and may need replacement. If you do, just select the keyboard with the exclamation mark (or any other sign), select Uninstall and reboot. After rebooting, check again. If you still have the mark, you might want to restore your OS

The symbols on my Dell L100 Keyboard do not work consistently in MS Word. Today I cannot get the quotation marks to work. The other day the question mark didn't work. It seems to only effect the ones...

It seems like you may have a strange language setting for your keyboard. Try going to Control Panel, and selecting language. It should look similar to this: snowyrat_1.jpg
There should be a tab labled something to the effect of "Change Keyboards or Other Input Methods." Select that, and then select "Change Keyboards" You'll get a menu that looks something like this: snowyrat.png
Select "Add" and scroll down to "English (United States)" Select "US(Default)" and click ok. Select US as your keyboard, and the problem should be fixed. If that's not the problem, then it may be a setting in MS Word. Hope this helps!

Just purchased an Acer Veriton M464 recently. The keyboard musnt be confifigured properly as some of the buttons are mixed up and the right hand side number keys dont work! What can i do?

I'd say unplug the keyboard, boot the computer without the keyboard, then use the windows key to shut it down, then plug it in and turn it back on, if it continues to do the same thing you can look for a secondary program running that handles the keyboard and see if it has a configuration option. If none of these things seem helpful, look in the bios, see if there is something funky in there that handles keyboard functions. If all else fails, purchase a cheezy keyboard from best buy and try that, if it works properly then u know it's the keyboard, if it doesn't, return the entire system as it could be a malfunction with the "bios" basic input output system that is not translating information properly.

Just a fyi, I'd return it anyway and get a dell.

That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.

? 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.
