Try pressing the Fn, F12, and NumLock keys simultaneously. This should release the Fn lock.

How to use function keys


I'm assuming you mean the secondary function. This depends on which type of keyboard you are using. Some keyboards you hold the alt key down, then the function key. Others have a separate Fn key you hold down instead.

You may have (accidentally) activated the Windows "Accessibility" tools. One of the tools is "Sticky Keys". For example, people with impaired motor-skills can press CTRL, and then press ALT, and then press DELETE, to achieve the 'CTRL-ALT-DELETE' key-sequence.

Turn off "Sticky Keys". Or, restart your computer to start without the "Accessibility" tools.

Jumping letters on acer laptop when I type


You need to disable the touch pad while typing. During typing your palm can accidentally touch the touch pad causing the cursor to 'jump' randomly resulting in the problem.

You have not mentioned the model but on Acer laptops there's a key in the upper row with a 'pad and finger' figure on it. If the figure is in blue, press Fn together with the figure key to disable the touch pad and then again to enable it.
