    I have an Acer Aspire 3620 laptop. The thing is that when I type with this keyboard, it will often miss out certain key inputs or letters.

    So for example, once every so often, I will type great and it show up as gret. Or when I press the spacebar, it won't input aspace.

    Does anbody know how to fix this problem? It's after business hours now so I cannot contact Acer. I'm hoping to get a fix so I can use my laptop without any keyboard problems over the weekend. Thanks guys.

    I too am having headaches trying to restore the a/f/r/x/4 keys on an Acer TravelMate 4652. After a little research, it appears the connector design chosen by Acer is VERY poor, and a lot of us are plagued by the same thing. One site I visited recommended removing the keyboard from the unit and re-seating the FCC ribbon running between the keyboard and the motherboard. Apparently, this is highly effective on a lot of the Acers, but it didn't fix my problem. It's a little complicated and requires carefully pulling off the plastic strip across the top of the unit, but once understood, the procedure is fairly easy. Here's the link to this procedure
    Good luck with it!
