My laptop is entering more than one character at a time when typing in my password for example its adding additional letters how can i turn this off

seems like something is ring with the keyboard, try an external keyboard, if the issue is still the same this will be a windows issue, once in windows tap on the shift key 5 times this will either deactivate sticky keys or ask you to activate sticky keys.
If it is not a sticky key setting issue then the problem most likely will be Hardware, did any liquid spill on your keyboard previously causing the key to malfunction causing the key to type extra characters?
If none then possible this is a faulty keyboard on the machine.

A few keys on my Acer 4420 are not working properly and I have no idea as to why. The keys are my o, p, l, ' and period keys. When I do use them they type out random characters. My o keys types out i75`,...

If a neighbor will let you,disconnect their keyboard and try it on yours.If it works normal,the problem is the keyboard.They are fairly cheap to buy brand new.If it does not go away,something is wrong,most likely the IC which interprets the keyboard signal and converts it to letters.It sounds most likely to be the keyboard because it is a few characters consistently.Perhaps something was spilled in that section as they are quite close together.Good luck,Greg

My acer notbook keyboard will not let me type the @ or the ~ do I need to do anything different

Check whether it requires any special key pressed when you want to type that character. Probably it should be the "Fn" key in Acer.

What does the insert key do?

Press and the text you type will over write what ever you have on the screen. This is typically used in most applications to "type over" existing text without moving the other letters/numbers/characters around.

This is my example of how the insert key works.
hit the insert key and position your cursor at the "w" in works.
Now type WOW!!.
You should now have:
This is my example of how the insert key WOW!!.

Clever these programmers. :)

Keep in mind it depends on the application you are running also.
Have fun!

My keyboard isn't typing most keys

I would reset the bios by using the jumper in the cabinet. Then make sure you have the correct type of keyboard selected and if all of that does not solve the issue, replace the keyboard.

My half of the keypad(Right Side) not working

If the wrong characters appear when you are typing or you are trying to use a keyboard that is different than the one that came with the computer, use the following steps to synchronize Windows to the type of keyboard you have:
  1. Click Start c01311982.gif , and type region into the Start Search field.
  2. Select the Keyboards and Languages tab.
  3. Click Change Keyboards .
    A Text Services and Input Languages window opens.
    Figure 3: Change Keyboard button
  4. Click Add .
    Figure 4: Add button
  5. Select the keyboard(s) you want to use and click OK .
    Figure 5: Add input language: US Dvorak keyboard selected.
    The new keyboard is added to the list of available keyboards and a keyboard icon appears on the system tray, allowing you to switch between the keyboard that you want to use with the mouse.
    Figure 6: Keyboard tray icon
  6. From the Text Services and Input Languages window, select the new keyboard in the list and click Move up until it is first in the list. This makes it the default keyboard.
    Figure 7: Move up button
  7. Click OK . You can now use the new keyboard. If you find that the new keyboard works well and you do not want to use the other keyboard, repeat these steps and Remove the keyboard that you do not want from the General tab of the Text Services and Input Languages window.
  8. If required reinstall the drivers

Suddenly,nearly half of the keys type other characters !!!

You have a numeric keypad built into the keyboard, press the function button (FN) followed by the number lock button (num lock). Hope this helps.
