There could be screws behind the battery area if you haven't found so. If it doesn't come out then you gotta remove the bezel on the top of the keyboard... might need some preying be careful plastics break easily. when you get the bezel off then you might see some screws holding the keyboard down and now remove those and be careful not to destroy and of the white ribbons they are extremely hard to replace if broken.

go to this link and download the manual for the Acer notebook.. basically you have to remove the back cover , the one with most of the screws around it. Once you get the plastic cover off, you will see the one side of the mainboard, look for a coin shaped silver battery, remove the CMOS battery and replace with new one
in case yopu dont have the manual, link below can be downloaded -- but it will not show you how to remove the battery.
Replace the inside of the keyboard with a new piece. One of the major problems with Dell keyboards is that the plastic pieces holding the keys in place become loose or broken. You can find a cheap keyboard from Papatek.com or an electronics store. Simply take apart the new keyboard, pull the keys off your keyboard, lay the plastic piece on top and replace your keys. http://www.papatek.com/Acer-Keyboard/Acer-Travelmate-8100-keyboard.html

i would suggest you get a new keyboard. Has anything been spilt on it. The keys you have said, sound like a cluster that has gone within the keyboard. The keyboard shouldnt be to much. You can take a keyboard out of a laptop either by unscrewing some screws on the back with a little keybaord next to them, or you would need to carfully pry a cover next to the keyboard to show the screws that are holding it down.
on most models of laptops, you can remove the cover for the joints that hold on the LCD and underneath you'll find a few screws that can be removed to allow for the keyboard to be taken out, and I would subjest not using any strong cleaners for when you take the keyboard off. if the cleaner is too strong, it might break the keyboard and also remove the painted letters and numbers on the keys =P. when cleaning the board, I recommend rubbing alcohol and a thin cloth to get under the keys. The reason being that the alcohol evaporates within 40 seconds to 80 seconds after application thus keeping the logic unit from becoming wet. That way you'll be back in business not long after you finish cleaning.
If you look very carefully - you should see 'something like' an H shaped piece of plastic that holds the key in place - this controls the position.
You need to prize the legs that meet with the key away from the centre (carefully) using 2off small jewel screw drivers (maybe 2 off paper clips)
1. you need to remove the power cover (if you see the power button, that what i mean).
2. after you remove that cover, you will see 2 screw that hold the keyboard. Remove both screws.
3. Remove keyboard and replace it with new keyboard.
In the upper front of the keyboard you can twist or remove the cover after you remove the cover unscrew the four or three screw that hold the keyboard and then detached the keyboard and clean or dry it.
1. Remove 3 screw from top of laptop. this screw hold power cover (cover which have power button).
2. Remove power cover.
3. remove 2 scews that hold keyboard.
4. that's all, you can take keyboard out from laptop.
Your memory chips must be had i that sounds like a chip problem under the laptop secured by two screws will be where the chip lodged pull it out and re-enter it might go it might not but that your problem I am sure of it.
