Reinstall your keyboard drivers or connect the keyboard socket to the USB if it connect to PS/2 or vice-versa.

Can't input symbol beside quotation on keyboard


Which symbol is by the quotation marks? In most cases it's the down arrow, which is just the return key, and not a symbol you can input.

If you're on a laptop that is below 15.6", quite often there is a 10-key involved. Make sure that you don't have a "Fn Lock" key enabled that would prioritize the secondary keys.

Cannot use shift key + number for numbers 1 through 4 and 7 through nine.Cant make any symbols(at sign,exclamation sign).I tried reinstalling keyboard driver,choosing different language,so on and so...


Hi,

You might have a hardware issue with your laptop keyboard. You have at least 2 options:

1) connect a "normal" USB keyboard to your laptop and use it, instead

2) run the On-Screen Keyboard (osk.exe) and access the characters/keys you want from there

Good Luck!

Can see the percentage key on my dell keyboard but can not make it work there are 4 symbols on the key.


Do you want to type the percent sign like this % ?

Try shift + 5

While holding the shift key, press the number 5 key (above and T keys) then release the shift key.

The symbols on my Dell L100 Keyboard do not work consistently in MS Word. Today I cannot get the quotation marks to work. The other day the question mark didn't work. It seems to only effect the ones...


It seems like you may have a strange language setting for your keyboard. Try going to Control Panel, and selecting language. It should look similar to this: snowyrat_1.jpg
There should be a tab labled something to the effect of "Change Keyboards or Other Input Methods." Select that, and then select "Change Keyboards" You'll get a menu that looks something like this: snowyrat.png
Select "Add" and scroll down to "English (United States)" Select "US(Default)" and click ok. Select US as your keyboard, and the problem should be fixed. If that's not the problem, then it may be a setting in MS Word. Hope this helps!

My mac laptop will not type certain letters. Instead, they come out as symbols. For example, I cannot type "g". It comes out as the copyright symbol.


Well what i learnt with MAC and pretty much any system is the keyboard when setting it up, if it is done in a different country format it will come out different when you type..
e.g. I have my HP G60-235DX and i Reinstalled the OS and then did the keyboard upon setup for UK english and i am in the U.S. and it came out totally different.. My @ is usually my number 2 not it is the " open quotation sign for my number 2 and my original open quotation sign is my @ sign, and this was all working fine once redone to american setup for the keyboard...
Check into that and see if the wrong setup was selected for the keyboard may have to call apple if not sure where to go for that...
99% of the time that is the issue and reason being is that keyboard and mose are like standard drives those dont require the software drivers just start up drivers and they work, so try to rethink and see in setup what was selected...
Give it a shot... what you got to lose more that a twisted keyboard... thank you

Cannot find @ and # symbol on HP mini Vivienne Tam Keyboard


Sounds like you're setup for England rather than USA in Windows settings, at least the keyboard settings.

Dell Wireless keyboard


You have your keyboard input in a different language to the keyboard layout. Change it through control panel and regional/language options.

I had the same problem. When I pressed shift and that comma key I got a " instead of a @.

I looked to see what on the leyboard you normally press to get a " and that's the number 2 key.

Tried pressing shift and the 2 key and hey presto, I got a @.

So it looks like @ and " have swapped places.

So shift and 2 for a @!
