Re: Problem with Bluetooth And Special button on top &...
Remove and then reinstall the device:
Click the Start button , click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.
Select the device that's not working, and then click Remove.
Click Add, press the reset button on the device (or make it discoverable following the manufacturer's instructions), select the My device is set up and ready to be found check box, and then click Next.
If the device is not found, repeat the previous step. When the device is found, select it, and then click Next.
Follow the rest of the instructions in the wizard.

Solution 1 - Permanent OFF (windows 7)
Go to Start menu > Devices and Printers
Right click on HP Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Kit (yours may have slightly different name)
Left click on Region and Language
Left click on Change Keyboards button
Under General tab go to > Default Input Language section > select English (Canada)-US
Under General tab, now go to > Installed Services section > Keyboard heading > click on item for Canadian French then click the Remove button on the right,
Repeat step 6 to remove line item Canadian Multilingual Standard
Click Apply button at the bottom of window, then click OK button to get out of the window, click OK to get out of final window
Close your Devices and Printers window and you are done FOREVER with the unwanted characters! :smileyhappy:
Solution 2 - Temporary toggle between special/normal characters
If it's like mine, the default keyboard setting requires you to do the following:
press hold left ctrl+shift, then tap right shift key, this should toggle between the special characters and back to the normal characters when steps are repeated.
Here are steps: Download the bluetooth driver from acer website Install it restart your pc Then press the bluetooth button which is on the top(above function keys) Then right click on the file you wanna send through bluetooth then send via bluetooth bluetooth adapter driver ENGLISH version http://support.acer-euro.com/documents/reports/blue_share_eng.pdf

If you want Italian, then the unit will show Italian. If you want it to show English, then you set it up for English. You can't have Italian verbal directions on an English unit.
To change the unit back to English: Press Wrench. Press the button with the picture of gears on it. Press Down arrow. Choose second menu item from the top. Press the middle of the 3 boxes on the right. Press up arrow to find American or British English.
Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clickingClock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.
Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.
Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.
Well the Acer site says that it has built-in bluetooth!(Aspire 1690)
If you go to device manager
(Right click on my computer, click on manage. Under System Tools in the left pane click on device manager)
you should see one of the device categories there as Bluetooth, if you don't see it and see a yellow icon that means you might need to install the bluetooth drivers! If you don't either you might need another component(bluetooth hardware) for the bluetooth to work!
hope this was helpful
