Question about Dell Inspiron 9100 Keyboard ( 88 United Kingdom DUAL POINTING) - G4234
I cant get my
@ key to work on my mini dell inspirion as i dont know what keys to press. i got it uo here by using character map.
I have the same issue, and found what should be the ' @ ' key has been programmed with ' " ' in its place ' @ ' can now be found using shift and the number 2 key, what would normally be ' " '. I was having to copy and paste in @ for ages before I realised as the screen's so tiny I couldn't see that """""!

Dell Inspiron 9100 3.2 gig. I was having the same problem with @ and the quotation mark. I thought it was a keyboard problem and needed to buy a new one, but this is not always the case. I began to experiment by first going to "Regional "Languages" in control panel then chose "United Kingdom" and "United States" and voila it got fixed. Now when I press "shift" and "2" I get the @. and when I press "shfit" and "the apostrophe" key I get the "quotation mark." Problem solved! So before buying a keyboard try changing the options for the English language

The most likely problem is the keyboard. You can try to have the keyboard connector reseated. If that doesn’t work, you’ll need to have the keyboard replaced. If you want to try to do this yourself, here’s the procedure:
Remove the AC power and Battery.
Open the LCD open.
Insert a small flat head screwdriver into the notch provided on the left end of the keyboard bezel to pry it up from the chassis.
Lift and remove the keyboard bezel from the chassis.
Lift to disconnect the indicator cable and release the connection from the system board.
Remove the ketboard bezel from the chassis. _________________________________________________________________________________
