Keyboard problem When trying to type the @ sign into an email address or word document, the only character that appears is the ' sign. I am having to copy and paste the @ sign from the character map as I am unable to type it. I have just had a new hard drive installed and this has only happened since then. I have a Logitect cordless keyboard and have been told it does not need a specil driver, it just uses the standard Windows one. I have looked at the settings in the control panel and the language is set to English (UK). Any suggestions?

When sending emails how do i type in my email address


Email address is made up of two parts

yourid@domainname of your email provider.

So jamesridel@Hotmail.com

Is email address of James Ridel whose provider is Hotmail.com.

The separation character is the @ symbol.

The email provider does not have to be your Internet provider.
Normally you set up an email account and your email address is put in for you, as "From:xxxx@xxxx"
You just have to put in who you want to send it to.

My email n password dont match, how can I fix it?


The procedure to troubleshoot email account login issues may vary depending upon your email service provider. So, to let us suggest you a specific solution, can you please share with us the name of your email service provider?

In the meanwhile, we recommend you to make sure that all the keys on your keyboard are functioning properly. If one or more keys are jammed or have stuck up, the keys that you hit may not display characters correctly on your login page. Also, make sure that the functional keys like Caps Lock and Nums Lock are On or Off only when required. To make sure that the keys on your keyboard are working fine, you can first try typing your email ID and password on a Notepad or Word Document and see if they come up correctly. If the keyboard is working fine, we suggest you to try typing your email ID and password slowly (if you have not done this already). Also, give special attention to characters like 2 or Z, 0 (zero) or O, 1 or I, 5 or S, 8 or B etc.

If one or more keys on the keyboard have become malfunctional, try logging in to your account through some other device (if you have not done this already) or consider using a different keyboard (if possible).

You can also try onscreen keyboard by press and hold the Windows key and hit the letter R. Type in OSK and hit enter. Try using the onscreen keyboard if the keyboard is not functioning correctly.

Keyboard not functioning


It may be a fault in the keyboard driver or in the keyboard itself. However if the character you need is not available on the keyboard directly it is possible to get any character by using the ASCII char code entry method. First off search the internet for a ASCII character number associating table (for a chart I like best, check here http://michaelgoerz.net/blog/2008/09/ascii-table/ascii.gif) now on this chart you have to use common fonts (IE: Ariel, times new roman, ect.) because some of the TTF fonts do not have all the characters in them available.
Now to practice using the characters, load Notepad and find the character you want to display from the chart (note: the number like 000d and 00h actually means 000 decimal and 00 hexadecimal, only use the number with the "d" after it with this method), on Notepad, after you pick out the character you want to display, press and hold the ALT key, and on your keypad (on most keyboards it is on the right side and resembles a calculator type keypad) while holding the ALT key down enter the number of the character you want to display (do not include the "d", only the number) then release the ALT key and that character should display for you in Notepad. Almost all standard fonts has the regular characters and some has the extended characters, you will have to check to see if the font uses them by trial and error. this method is a long lost forgotten means of putting characters into your documents which does not have keys on a standard keyboard (most standard keyboards only have 101 keys so this is the only way of using all the 255 character available in common fonts).
This is a built in function of all computers that uses Microsoft OS's and even DOS, HDOS, EDOS, (well all the DOS's), and you can use them anywhere you can type anything from your keyboard, (emails, letters, databases, spread sheets, etc.) if you can type from the keyboard to any program you can use these characters in this manner.
I hope this help you out!

How do i set up an email account


MSN boasts its free email service, Hotmail, as the "efficient way to do e-mail."
Indeed, MSN offers several perks such as advanced security protection, email accessibility with your cell phone and one-stop inboxing, or the ability to bring all your email addresses together.
Once you complete the process of setting up an account with MSN, you'll be able to use your new Hotmail email address.

Open up your Internet browser to the MSN "Create your email address" page.
Select the country or region of the world you live in.

Choose the name you would like to appear before the "@hotmail.com" part of the address. Besides letter and numbers, you can also use hyphens, periods and underscores to personalize your email address.
Press "Check Availability" when you have typed in your desired name to make sure it is not already claimed.

Create a password for your account; your password must have six or more characters.
You'll be prompted to type in your desired password twice.
To protect yourself from identity theft and fraud, you should create a strong password for your email account.

Select a security question from the pull-down menu and provide the answer to the question.
In case you forget your password, you'll be able to retrieve that information upon giving the correct answer.
Or, provide another email address that you use; MSN will send your forgotten password to that email address.

Provide your personal information such as your name, birth date, gender, state, zip code and the time zone you live in.
Enter the characters you see on your screen for verification purposes.
Read through Microsoft's service agreement and online privacy statement and click "Accept" when you are done.
Navigate to the "Sign In" page for Hotmail.
Type your user name (name@hotmail.com) and password in the appropriate spaces; click "Sign In."
Now you are ready to use your MSN email address.
