Question about Acer NSK8458AN Keyboard
When you get that it usually means the language setting for the keyboard has changed.
The standard key markings are valid for most english language settings. US is the default. To change this go to start - settings - control panel. Then look for Regional and language settings. Click on that and then in the window that open there are three tabs along the top. The middle one should say language, click on that one. In the Text Languages and input options area click on the Detail button. A new window opens. At the top it shows your language. And in the box under it will show your lnaguage and installed keyboard layout. So if I were using Canadian English and the US keyboard then the keys will function as marked. To change the keyboard language click the add button, then select your language and then the keyboard layout. When you click ok it goes back to the previous window but now will show the original setup and the new one you just made. Just remove the original and apply and close everything and your keyboard will now produce the correct characters.

Microsoft Windows supports multiple "foreign" keyboards and "input-methods".
Be sure that your computer is set to 'US English' keyboard, not French or German or Klingon or Swedish Chef.
Or, look to the RIGHT of the SPACE BAR, for a key labelled ALT(ernate) GRA(phic). Hold that key down.
Press the '?' key, and release it. Release the ALT GRA key.

Try the left alt and shift keys. That worked for me. My computer was defaulted to this sequence for changing language settings.
