If only those special-purpose keys are affected, you are probably missing a driver for them.
These keys are generally dependent on a little special software written by (or for) Acer whereas the common keys are read/controlled by a drive supplied by MicroSoft.

Go the the Acer website via this link and supply the info they require.
You should be able to download the latest drivers for your 5100.

This used treadmill is plugged in and doesn't have the key in and it turns on at an extremely high speed and even hitting the stop button doesn't turn it off. Help?

Thats what we call a "run-away" treadmill. You have a bad motor controller. If its not too old you can probably find a replacement board in the $120-200 range. Try searching for the model number at Treadmill Doctor.

Ps3 controller buttons getting mixed up

Ok I found out the simple problem and solution. It is the black foam strip that is right in back of the terminal strip fight by the lights once you open the controller. A piece of black foam is supposed to be underneath the clear strip in order for the controller to turn on and function. Adding paper or bundled tape helps the issue of buttons acting up if you press down on L3 as well. Check out this video it gave me the epiphany - It also helps when the buttons malfunction , this is why I opened it to begin with .

Try activating the context menu with the keyboard using the Menu Key.
In computing, the Menu key or Application key is a key found on Microsoft Windows-oriented computer keyboards. It is typically found on the right side of the keyboard between the right Control key and Windows key (or between the right control key and right Alt key).
The key's primary function is to launch a context menu with the keyboard rather than with the usual right-mouse button. The key's symbol is a small icon depicting a cursor hovering above a menu. This key was created at the same time as the Windows key. The Menu key can be used when the right-mouse button is not present on a mouse.

Hope this Helps

How do I custom program the buttons on a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick that I bought for my Mac to use with the F/A-18 OIF game? I don't see anything in the game software for customizing the joystick. ...

I just bought a copy of ControllerMate. Solved all of my button problems with my new Extreme 3D Pro and FA-18 OIF. You can program all the buttons in any way you want. Single key or multi-key entries. I'm running it all on a new MacBook Pro 2.53 Core i5 and it works perfect.
I was astounded that the old 2003 OIF would work on this new intel mac but it does.
