Cant get pound sign to work or other symbols seem to be in wrong place

Since my laptop went in for keyborad repairs, a couple of keys kept sticking, the keyboard has been wrong. The computer was wiped clean when it was returned to me but the pound sign dosnt work and other symbols are in the wrong place. I have checked that all regional settings are set to UK but this has not made any difference. Can you help please?

You need to check your keyboard language settings as it sounds like it is set to US english

go to regional settings and check ( it is on a button in one of the sub pages... you really need to check everything)

although I understand that you have already checked this, this is the ONLY thing that causes this so you have missed something

Hope this helps. If so, please consider rating this solution.

The pound symbol


I am unable to answer your problem that why you are not getting the required symbol if it is there (Hope that you are pressing the no. 3 with Shift key pressed).
But if you need a Pound sign you can get it by pressing 0163 key from the right side numeric keypad while pressing the alt key (i.e. alt+0163).
Remember that you cannot use the upper number key for this purpose.
