Your keyboard is set to the wrong layout. Go into control panel, keyboard, and select the standard US layout. You may have to reboot.

Acer extensa E210 manual


Hi
The link below takes you to the Acer website and a page where you can find all the drivers etc for this machine.
http://www.acer.co.uk/ac/en/GB/content/drivers
I can see a potential flaw in this in that under the documents tab it only lists a "generic" user guide. However this may contain the information you want.
Good luck

Can i reset a Dell Precision 360 to factory without disks ?


Swapping disks that run on a different system will not work unless the systems are exactly alike (manufacturer's make and model).

Your best bet is to reinstall the operating system if you can read the Product Key Code (series of 5 letters and numbers) on the Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker on the computer. You have to reinstall using the same version of the operating system. If the COA says Windows XP Pro, then you need to reinstall with a Windows XP Pro operating system disk otherwise when it comes time to activate and put in the product key code you'll have issues and it will never activate.

Acer extensa 4220 wireless problem


I'm not sure if you tried hitting the appropriate key on your keyboard to initialize your wireless network. Check your manual to see which key it is, it is not automatic. Also, make sure you have a wireless card. Click on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system it will give you a list of all your hardware, Look for 802.11b/g that is the wirless.

Acer extensa 5620 laptop cant get the @ button to come up


Sounds like your computer thinks got a foreign keyboard. (e.g. a US keyboard in the UK or vice versa).
On the UK keyboard "@" is two keys to the right of "L" (use shift) on the US keyboard it is on the "2" key.
Try that, if it works then it is just the settings. (Control panel -> locale I think, but you don't say which OS you're using).
