Acer aspire 3620 keyboard problem number key wont work only symbols in shift mode appearing


This indicates one of your Shift keys is stuck. It's not the top of key, but the contacts below are connected, even when you are not pressing the key.
Repairing a laptop keyboard is not easy, because in most models the keyboard is sealed.
One option would be to replace the keyboard. But this could be costly.
The other option is to disable the keyboard and use an external keyboard, a flexible (rubber) keyboard is recommended if the laptop travels with you.

I dont know how to access all of the symbols that are on a key e.g. one key has a question mark, a slash and two other symbols, one is blue and the other is green


You use teh shift key and the [FN] key to access these extra sets of characters. If it is basically a circle around a symbol then press and Hold the [FN] key while pressing the key you want. If it is the ?,,{,},:," or any of the symbols on the upper part of the number keys at the top of the keyboard just press and hold the shift key while pressing the key.

How can i make a forward slash on a mexican keyboard. on an american keyboard there is useually one symbol per number on the top keys so you onle have to press shift then the nuber to get the symblol...


On these keyboards, the non colored symbols are typed by holding down the shift key and tapping the symbol. If you want to type the colored key, then you have to hold down the Alt Gr key and tap the colored symbol key.
