When I try to use my numbers at the top it will not do it. I thought if I turned off my Num Lock key they might but no go. I have a compaq keyboard with a lot of blue symbols on it. I don't know what it...

Please clarify if this is a PC keyboard and a keyboard on a laptop? If you can, give me the model number of either the keyboard itself or the laptop if it happens to be on a laptop. Many times, if you CAPS lock is engaged, you will see the image on the top part of the key, instead of the number. I need to know what you are looking at before I can help you.

Keyboard keys that have purple numbers are locked. Can't type.

Your "Num Lock" is on.
Look for the num lock key (it's similar to the "caps lock" key in function)
If the "num lock" is blue, you may have to hold a blue "fn" key when you press num lock

There's is probably a light at the top of the keyboard that'll tell you when num lock is on.

Keyboard problem on brandnew laptop

Several reasons: 1. because of spilled liquid on this keyboard area, 2. because of heavy and/or hard thing fell on this keyboard area
3. because the laptop fell from the high height on the left side.
4. because you bought it already damaged
5. hardly probably software malfunction
For the first case you might need to disassemble the keyboard and clean all the metallic surfaces of these buttons. It's not so easy to disassemble it in right way. Second-third case - you'll need to purchase a new keyboard for it and replace with the damaged. Fourth case - claim your seller to change your laptop with the new one or get your money back. Good luck

F key came off

If you have the key retainer (image) you can find some good instructions on the webpage.

If you do not have the retainer you will have to buy either the key or the entire keyboard from ebay. As of Jan 1 there are no keys available for acer keyboards but the entire keyboard is available here and here.

Keyboard removal

Generally, keyboards are the easiest thing to replace on a laptop except for memory.
Usually, there are either screws on the back that have little keyboard symbols next to them. If that is not the case, then you need to find a way to remove the little panel that is directly above the keyboard as the screws are probably under there.
Just a heads-up, doing any of this will void your warranty if you are still under it.
