The wrong symbols appear when key pressed. i.e " appears when @ is pressed and vice versa


sounds like you have the keyboard set to the wrong country. Go into control panel, then into regional settings and set the language and keyboard for the area in which you live ( like english US or english australian) then reboot to load the correct codepage... Have fun.

Computer keyboard.


The problem does not lie in your keyboard, but rather the keyboard layout settings. Go to control panel, keyboard options and select the standard US settings.

This is a problem I had at onre time and it turned out that I had selected the USA Keyboard in stead of tthe UK Keyboard, you could have the same error or vice versa (ie Uk instaed of USA) so go to START then select CONTROL PANEL then select KEYBOARD and check which is selected and correct if necessary.
