Some of the keys are not working including enter key


Please try to specify what alphabet keys that are not working. If it extends up to the number keys, then your keyboard is broken and no alternative repair can be done. You need to replace it.

My mouse pad isnt working but a USB mouse is, tried to use Fn+F7 but didnt work. Any help?


Is there a function key on the laptop? (Fn usually blue ink) is there a key with the symbol that looks like mouse pad. Hold down Fn then the mouse pad key and that should enable the mouse pad.

As you have suggested the F7 key is the one for the mouse pad, and hasn't made any difference, have you somehow corrupted the drivers. You can download them from the acer website.

when did it last work, you cloud try a system restore. Remember to press Fn + F7 again and give it a moment to enable( just in case the last time you tried it, you turned the hardware off despite it's lack of functionality)

Numbers coming up instead of letters


There's a key on the keyboard that turns a "grid" of the alphabetic characters into a "grid' of numbers, like you would find on an adding-machine.

Press that key, to disable the "numeric pad" functionality.

Fn key wont turn off


OK, I've found a soliution! :) I've been diging the internet and many people are having the same problem, so it is a common problem however the soliution is very simple (in my case). The thing is that laptops does not has a saparated Num Pad, and numbers can be found on keys under F1-F12 row or/and (active with Fn key) on alphabetic keys uiopjkl;m/ and so on. But if there is a NumLk key on your keyboard, you can lock the Num Pad on alphabetic keys. Then you have to hold Fn key pressed to write letters.  Find the NumLk key and try to turn off the Num Pad :)
On my laptop (Acer extensa 5120) NumLk key is on F11 and active when Fn is depressed.
Hope this wil help :)

I have a hewlett packard laptop and on the right hand side of the keyboard are the keys with a small box with alternative symbols that can be used. I seem to have locked the computer into typing only these...


This feature will be available with Notebooks which are small in form factor and there is no space to provide the Number Pad seperately. So, the Numbers will be integrated on to the Alphabets.

Inorder to switch on the Number Pad, you need to hold the FN key and press the Number Lock. Pressing the Number Lock alone will not disable the integrated Number Pad.

Hope this helps...

Some letters are locked


From the question I can assume that you are using a laptop computer. The reason that his happens is because you have hit Num Lock thus enabling the numerical terms in place of your alphabetic ones. The reason that they overlap the keys is that laptops are compact and cannot hold their own number pad, so they simply make it a toggle on/off thing for people who like using the pad version rather than the lengthwise one above the normal letter keys. Hope this helps!

Acer 3680-2682 laptop---key cover for #5 fell off--other than gluing-which I don't think will hold-do they sell just a key number to replace?


You would have to replace the whole keyboard as one piece, as they don't sell the keys separate.


Good Luck

KEYBOARD PROBLEM


The number lock is engaged on your laptop keyboard. usually that is FN+F11 keys or number lock is on by default in the BIOS setup.
Check and see which F1-F12 key looks like a number pad
