Below is the link to the service and repair guide. Change out the keyboard...they do not do well with spills. They are really just one big circuit board. Buy one cheap on Ebay and change it out following the guide below.
If the keyboard is malfunctioning due to factory fault, you can request a warranty repair from Acer depending on the status of the warranty.
If keys have fallen off or if the damage was caused by a liquid spill, the warranty option doesn't apply.
If you already have the keyboard, you should be able to find repair documentation on Acer's site.
There should be several screws on the back of the laptop. A few of them might have an icon near them that indicates the purpose of the screw. If you see any icons that resemble a keyboard, you should take those screws out. Then you will be able to take the keyboard out and replace it. Remember to be gentle during this process as the motherboard will be temporarily exposed.
Is that the only problem your keyboard has is that one key? There are little rubber fittings that go under that key..almost like a rubber ring on some...If that is missing then the key won't work properly. Make sure the key is perfectly aligned when you pop it back on...uninstall the driver then reinstall it...See if that helps...
Note....notebooks are very particular with it comes to keys and alignment. Be careful
