    Is the whole keyboard disabled? What happens when you type? Does your mouse work? Have you tried a reboot? Please reply with as many answers as you can get and we will try to get you a solution.

How do I access the question mark


All you have to do is hold the SHIFT key down and then press the BACKSLASH (/) key. This should allow you to access your question mark character.

Here is a link to an image of an ACER Keyboard:

http://www.laptopbatterysell.com/images/Acer-Aspire-One-Laptop-Keyboard-Black.jpg


Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.

You can see the QUESTION MARK / BACKSLASH key near the lower right hand corner of the keyboard in that image.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Just out of curiosity, go to Run and type OSK. This will bring up the on screen keyboard, try typing and see if that brings up the "wrong" characters. This would eliminate the keyboard or prove the keyboard is having issues. You can also attach a USB keyboard and double check with that.

If it happens again, disconnect from the internet (make sure no connection is active) and try again, if it fails to reproduce the problem, you may have a virus

If it is a virus, chances are it is allowing someone to remotely access your computer and producing these errors (probably unlikely but..)

Please try the above and then get an online virus scan to eliminate this possibility

Keyboard will not work


Try this and see if this works for you. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad. Touch Keyboard simulates a 20-key QWERTY (typewriter) keyboard on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols similar to the way you would using a QWERTY keyboard. To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).
Let me know if this works for you, if not let me know.
