Question about Keyboards & Mice
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 @!

So the "2" key works, just not the "@" key? That's strange... If you've got a keyboard that requires drivers, (Such as the logitech, fellowes, or microsoft) you can try reinstalling the keyboard drivers.
If that doesn't work, and you don't want to spend $5 on a new keyboard, you can use "Character Map" for the minimum of times that you would actually use the @ button.
It should be Under "System Tools" in your start menu under "Accessories"
Just click "Start" and type "Character Map" (without the quotes) and press enter
When the program comes up click on the "@" symbol and press "Select" then whenever you need to put an "@" symbol in your screen, instead of pressing Shift+2 you press Ctrl+V.
That's the best work around if the driver thing doesn't work.
