Click Control Panel
Click Regional Settings
Make sure that your "input method" is set to "US Keyboard".

Or, it could be a malfunctioning keyboard.
A laptop keyboard is not a "user-replaceable" part.

Try connecting a USB keyboard, and see if it works correctly.

    I doubt that reinstalling Windows will solve the problem.

    Borrow/buy an external USB keyboard, connect it, and try if, to see if Windows correctly recognizes each key-press, i.e., press Q, get Q. If it does, then Windows itself is OK, and it's your keyboard that is malfunctioning.

    Did somebody spill something (soft drink? coffee with cream & sugar?) onto the keyboard, and did not own-up to doing it?

    thanks sir but i already try reinstall,reformat,change windows, but again nothing happens, and i also try removing all the keys one by one and clean it (fail again)

    i think a little of soda pour in keyboard but i clean it also, i think its keyboard replacement sir? how much it'll cost in my acer aspire 4715z laptop?

    one more thing sir um the original os of my laptop is vista starter and i change it to windows 7 coz someone say that it is compatible i search the net for drivers and i found but its in vista home premium it says its compatible with widndows 7 and i install etc and drivers all ok, do you think it nothing connection with my keyboard problem? thanks sir! godbles!!

    >> I think its keyboard replacement?

    If the external USB keyboard works correctly, then I agree that it is time to replace the keyboard.

    > how much it'll cost in my acer aspire 4715z laptop?

    Probably around $50 for the new keyboard (maybe less if you can buy on on eBay)
    and another $50 for "labour" by a technician to safely/correct change the keyboard.

Some of the keys are not functioning properly they are typing numbers instead of letters and the space bar is also typing a number? Please help!!

There is probably a function button on your keyboard. Pressing that button should fix the problem. It might be labeled Fn. (Look near the bottom left of the keyboard.) Best Wishes!

assume this is an acer laptop keyboard?

Sticky key: gently remove the space bar noting how the retaining clips fit. Clean under the bar and around the rubber buffer with isopropyl alcohol or similar, test before refitting the bar, if this does not resolve the problem, you may be looking at a partly damaged keyboard and will need to replace

The rubber plug below the spacebar button is faulty.The button needs to be removed gently and the rubber plug below it which touches the board below should be cleaned.If this does not solve the issue the rubber plug below the button needs to be replaced.Its a common problem.

Left side space bar does not work

The space bar on any PC is a single button you may need to make sure your keyboard is clear of any debris If that doesn't fix issue you will probably need to replace keyboard which is very easy to do.

Acer laptop spacebar fell off

The space bar key is connected tothe keyboard a little bit differently then any other key.
There is a metal retainer connectedto the space bar key (on some keyboard models). Separate the retainer from thespace bar key with a flathead screwdriver.
Install the retainer back inplace as it shown on the picture. You have to engage the retainer with thesmall hooks on the keyboard.
Put the space bar key back inplace and gently press on it with fingers until it snaps back in place.
That’s it. The space bar key isinstalled back in place and should work as before. If you still cannot fix yourkeyboard, then you’ll have to find a new oneand replace it.
Pleas rate my solution on fixya if you are done.
