When I want to put in a Question mark in a sentance, I get that funny little red E that is on the same key.

You have the wrong keyboard selected for your computer. This can happen based off where you purchased the computer. The installed keyboard profile is wrong. Do this below:

Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Keyboards and Languages > Change Keyboards to the one for your correct language

I am getting a funny sound when i press any key on the keyboard. The keyboard is not responding even when i am typing in word. Just a beep sound when i press any key. The mouse is working fine. What might...

most likely one of your keys got stuck down.
take a close look at all the keyboard keys (most likely it is either the Shift, ALT, CTRL or spacebar)

it is also possible the connection to he computer is not fully connected. try to re-plug it.
lastly- did you try to restart the computer?

Acer aspire 3003wcli keyboard stopped responding

You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!

Cannot get apostrophes or question marks

I just figured this out. Hold down your left shift key, then press CTRL. It may take a couple of times for it to work, but it will eventually.

To adjust the key repeat rate
  1. Open shortcutcold.gifKeyboard in Control Panel.
  2. On the Speed tab, make changes as follows:
    • To adjust the amount of time that elapses before characters repeat when you hold down a key, drag the Repeat delay slider.
    • To adjust how quickly characters repeat when you hold down a key, drag the Repeat rate slider.
