I haven't tried it on my computer, but the info comes from Microsoft website, so...

I went to Microsoft website in UK (it's probably available elsewhere). I selected Downloads and Trials. After, I clicked on the first image (Download Center). In the search bar, instead of All Download, I selected Drivers and indicated in the other bar, keyboard layout. It brings you to a window where you can download a file to modify the keyboard properties.

Hi, my father-in-law has Acer One laptop and the "@" symobal only works when i press shift+2, which should be the quote mark. I have looked in the settings and can not find out how to change it - please...

HI You need to change the Keyboard Layout and Regional Settings of your PC from English US to English UK.

You need to go in Control Panel to do that.

If your Windows doesn't have a language pack installed you will have to reinstall windows and choose English UK when it ask you to set your Location and Time Zone.

Acer extensa 5620 laptop cant get the @ button to come up

Sounds like your computer thinks got a foreign keyboard. (e.g. a US keyboard in the UK or vice versa).
On the UK keyboard "@" is two keys to the right of "L" (use shift) on the US keyboard it is on the "2" key.
Try that, if it works then it is just the settings. (Control panel -> locale I think, but you don't say which OS you're using).

I'm assuming it's a standard british keyboard

If UK or UK Extended isn't selected click Add
Select your language and keyboard layout from the list
Click OK
Your keyboard should now show up in the box
Click the non-UK Keyboard setting
Click Remove
Click Apply then OK

Settings may not change until you restart.

If your keyboard isn't the standard UK layout, check your manual or the Sony website to find out which it is.
