Well, I understand that I have to install the specific acer driver. The one that I have is the standard 101/102 supplied by MS. I should insert the install disk of my ACER that I lost when I moved over here...

None of both matches although the 2nd one is closer. When I go in Start Keyboard (sorry, key bored), there is a "depanage" section. Looks like I should get one specific driver from ACER. Looked at their site and tried to downloand things, but doesn't seem to work. I addressed them an email. Apparenttly, they'll come back to me within... 3 working days.

then pls read second item written by WileECoyote.compare these 2 keyboards:http://ve2.ele.etsmtl.ca/~va2mek/ve2/guides/clavier_azerty.jpghttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/71/AZERTY_keyboard_layout.JPGminus matches with equal, plus with exclamation mark.one has built-in num-pad.it seems that you accidentally swithed on num-pad... or installed accidentally the driver of other type of keyboard. you can check it in start-control panel-keyboard. but that's a weaker possibility.

Actually, I tried almost everything. From configuring my keyboard from French Canadian to French Luxembourg. The 4 keys that don't work properly are the last 4 on the right (from top to bottom, the minus/underscore, dollar/star, pounds/u and plus/equal). Everything else look ok = no I can not get the "at" sign neither the euro sign.

Ooops,There is another possibility.Your Keyboard is faulty. This is a hardware fault and needs to be replaced.
