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

My dell laptop type wrong letter


Hi,
The standard keyboard language and widely used setting is "ENGLISH (US)"
Set the Keyboard layout to English US so that you have standard keys for symbols etc. like @ sign with SHIFT+2 etc.

The keyboard layout / Language of your PC may have been different (other than English US), so follow these steps to select the International keyboard layout:

- Go to Control Panel - Regional and Language settings
- On the Keyboards and Language tab, click Change keyboards.
- Click Add.
- Expand the language that you want. For example, English (United States).
- Expand Keyboard list, select the United States-International check box, and then click OK.
- In the Default input language list, click Language name - United States-International (where Language name is the language that you selected in step 4), and then click OK two times.
- In the Regional and Language Options dialog box, click OK.

The above steps would change the Keyboard Layout settings to 'English US' and you would be able to type @ sign with SHIFT+2

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

My shift 2 key does not give me the @ sign and the shift 3 key gives me the number sign. and other errors.


You do not explain what the "other errors" are but the SHIFT 3 is supposed to be the pound sign (#)
Nor do you say what the shift 2 does display if anything.

The most common problem with keyboards is what we in the businees call "Lunch Syndrome"

Basically it's contamination

Hold you keyboard about a foot off the table, turn it so the keys face down , then shake and gently tap the bottom of the keyboard to dislodge the contamination. You may want to lay paper or a towel down as you'll be surprised as what comes out.

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!

Sounds like a defective keyboard. I seen issues when pressing a button it will trigger another key to be pushed or nothign displays at all. Try replacing keyboard since they are relatively cheap. othersie maybe a software issue

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

The@sign


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 @!

@ key not working


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 """""!
