Question about Acer Aspire 5630 Notebook
I have aspire 5630
some keys act as if the Fn key is pressed
it is not jammed i checked and another proof is that some other keys work normally and i have to press Fn to get them to do their other functions -such as lower volume-
it's really annoying because all the following keys do not work normally
instead when i press them i get
Try hooking up and external key board see if that works ok, and if it does you may want to try to find a new or used key board for your laptop. The key board may be shot, It should be fairly easy to change to a new board, Hopefully That will help you diag. the problem..

I have just managed to solve the problem I think. Try using the Fn key to turn off the number lock -- Hold down "Fn" and tap "F11". It seems number lock is on by default in some situations!
I found that pressing F12 & the Num lock / Scroll lock key beside it toggles the FN lock on and off on my laptop.
Hope that's helpful as it was driving me nuts for a while

I have an Acer TravelMate 5720 that was running Windows XP.
I replaced the hard drive and installed Windows 7 Pro.
Now the built-in keyboard has Fn enabled when it boots.
The number keys are active in the middle of the keyboard (J,K,L, etc)
But pressing Fn-F11 changes the number keys into arrow/home/end/pgup/pgdn keys!
An external keyboard works properly.
I put the old XP hard drive in again and everything works great.
