Easiest a new keyboard. Beyond that, pop the keys out with a butterknife, and insure that nothing is keeping them from fully depressing. If there's no obstruction, you might try completly pulling the case off the keyboard itself. If you've never done this, you'll find that each "key" on the keyboard corresponds to a matching "black button" on the physical board itself. The Key pressing on this button is what sends the signals to your computer that a keystroke has been made. Try pressing that little "black button" with a pencil or something, and see if it registers. If it does, you just need a new key, if not, the board is shot and it's cheapest to get a whole new keyboard.

I know that i've kind of watered this down, but i hope it points you in the right direction.

How can I re install my wintowsvista in acer 5235

Please click on the following location, you will be able to download the user manual for your laptop model (5235)

The download is a Zip file, your windows XP / vista should be able to open it and you will find the PDF file (you need adobe PDF reader to open this file)

Go to page 68 of this manual and you will find the procedure to restore windows from backup discs if you have created one. If you have not created full system backup, then you need the windows vista DVDs that came with the computer..

Where is the delete button?

There isn't a 'delete' button like you'd find on the extended keyboard, if you hold function while pressing backspace it will function as a delete key. (My MacBook's backspace is labeled 'delete' but is a standard backspace.)

Answer: Function + Backspace = Delete

I hope this is helpful and works for you. If I didn't fully answer your question, please let me know and I will do my best to add or clarify my response. If this was helpful, please rate my answer with 5 thumbs up.

Where is the delete button on a french keyboard!

In wordprocessing or email the backspace key deletes the previous charachter and isnot the same as the Delete key which deletes the next charachter.

On my girlfriend's french pc the delete key is marked "Suppr". It works to delete the next character and also for the "executive override" function which will reboot an old pc or get you to Task Manager in windows.

Backspace button and del button unresponsive

Wait until the updates have completed and you have rebooted the system as backspacing in some environments, including install processes can change pages, so this may be a temporary condition which should remedy after your install is completed.

"lost backspace button on Acer Aspire One"

Unfortunately, there is no way to purchase just one key of the keyboard. Acer does offer full replacement keyboards and they are easy enough to install. Unless you can find just the backspace key on eBay or something, you might have to replace the entire keyboard.

Thanks for using the fixya Forums.
