Question about Acer NSK8458AN Keyboard
Type moves from one line to the next and all over the place
I don't know if you mean that your cursor suddenly moves as you are typing? If so, it is likely your touch pad is too sensitive. I have a mouse w/mouse pad but never disabled the touch pad. So i disabled the touch pad and it solved it for me. If you want to be sure it is the touch pad being over sensitive, then type a paragraph but keep your fingers and palms far away from the touch pad. If the problem improves, like it did for me, then the touchpad is too sensitive. You can go into the settings for the touchpad to change the sensitivity setting to make it less senstive and see if that works and it does not then press Fn +F7 keys to disable the touchpad.

Back up all data on the Acer Aspire One that you wish to keep.
Turn the system on by pressing the "Power" button.
Press and hold the "Alt" key immediately after pressing the "Power" button and tap the "F10" button.
Continue holding the "Alt" button and tapping the "F10" button until a screen saying "Acer eRecovery" appears.
You will see three options:
Restore system to factory default
Restore system from CD/DVD (grayed out if an optical drive is not connected)
Click on "Restore system to factory default." A notice will appear informing you that all data on the "C:" drive will be overwritten and reminding you to plug in the AC cord.
Click "OK" to begin the recovery. A message will appear stating once again that all data on your hard drive will be overwritten.
Click "OK" to acknowledge the message. The screen will show you a progress bar as the recovery progresses. Wait until the recovery is complete. The time will vary depending upon the individual netbook. A message will appear when the recovery is finished.
Click "OK" to restart the computer. The netbook will reboot. Windows will load, asking you to wait. A "Welcome to Microsoft Windows" screen will eventually appear with background music playing. It is time to help Windows set up your computer.
Click "Next" to continue. You will be asked to input your system settings. Enter your region, language, and keyboard type, then click "Next." The next window is for your time zone.
Select your time zone and, if desired, place a check in the box beside "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings time," then click "Next." The EULA (End User License Agreement) will appear next.
