Question about Acer Computers & Internet
There is no seperate numpad in the keyboard. If you wish to use the special functions you should press and hold the Fn key while pressing a key. Special functions include stuff like switching display etc., I am sure you are aware that you have to press and hold shift to type the symbols.

Tips for a great answer:
Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.
This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.
If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.
The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard
Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.
In the registry, open the below folders.
Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.
0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.
hope this helps

Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.
You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"]
keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at
the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.
Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.
Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.
After you release all the keys alt symbol should be
entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really
enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine
near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case
- try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt".
That just might work.
