Cannot change the function on my keyboard back to a question mark


If you're on Windows then try pressing CTRL+SHIFT keys together (sometimes ALT+SHIFT, see which combination works for you) until your keyboard layout indicator in your system's notification area (bottom right part of your screen, just left of system clock) shows the keyboard layout code that you're used to, in your case "EN". You can cycle through all the installed keyboard layouts using this same key combination.

How can I type Japanese o keybord?


Hai ! This is possible : )

Type in Chinese, Japanese, and other character-based languages

To type text on your computer in character-based languages, such as Chinese and Japanese, follow these steps:


[Source: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Type-in-Chinese-Japanese-and-other-character-based-languages]

  1. Add the language as an input language. If you want to use an input method editor (IME), make sure you select it when you add the input language. For more information, see Add an input language.
    Add an input language

    You can edit documents in multiple languages by changing the language (the input language) in which you type. Input languages are included with Windows, but you need to add them to your list of languages before you can use them.

    1. Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.

    2. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab, and then click Change keyboards.

    3. Under Installed services, click Add.

    4. Double-click the language you want to add, double-click the text services you want to add, select the text services options you want to add, and then click OK.



  1. Change your input language to the language you installed. For more information, see Change your input language.


Change your input language

The input language is a setting in Windows that controls the language you use to type information on your computer. Before you can change an input language, you need to add that language to Windows. For more information, see Add an input language.
To change the input language

Click the Input language button on the Language bar, and then click the input language you want to use.

If you don't see the Language bar, right-click the taskbar, point to Toolbars, and then click Language bar.

  1. Change your keyboard layout to the desired layout. For more information, see Change your keyboard layout.


Change your keyboard layout

You can customize your keyboard for a specific language or format by changing the keyboard layout. The layout controls which characters appear on the screen when you press the keys on your keyboard. Some input languages have several keyboard layouts; others have only one. For example, you can change your keyboard layout from the English QWERTY format to the English Dvorak format. After you change the layout, the characters on your screen might not correspond to the characters on your keyboard keys.

Before you can change the keyboard layout, you must add the input language and keyboard layout that you want to use to Windows. For more information, see Add an input language.

  1. On the Language bar, click the Input language button, and then select an input language.

On the Welcome screen, click the Keyboard layout button 0c181420-8a93-48b6-82b1-b2dc25fc01b5.png, and then select a keyboard layout.

TIP:
After you are done you can switch between Japanese and English very easily by manually pressing the on screen buttons or using keyboard commands like SHIFT+ALT to switch between Japanese (???) and the Alphabet.

Keys Confused on logitech ultra-flat keyboard


You have to change the KB language to US-English. It seems that you got the European layout set up currently.

Go to Control Panel and select "regional & language settings". In the tab marked 'regional options', select "English (United States)" from the drop down menu. If that is already the selected option, then choose "English (United Kingdom)" instead. That should solve the issue.

Cheers!

My keyboard having a problem with the key @ and " changing place


The possibility is, you use the different keyboard layout. Check if your language is appropriate. Try to use osk (on screen keyboard) in : start/run and write there: osk, then push enter.  If in osk your keyboard still exchanging, i'm sure your keyboard layout is error.  but if your osk showing the right result, and your keyboard had the same problem, i'm sure there's circuit error inside your keyboard. You should open it (it need some expert i guess).

On my Acer Aspire 5670 keyboard layout the 'shift 2' key gives me quotation marks (") instead of the 'at' (@) symbol which is printed on the key...any idea how I can change this?


Yes, go to the Control Panel and then to "Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options", from there choose "Regional and Language Options" click on the Languages tab, click on the Details button and finally on the Add button within the window, choose English (United States) as Input Language (or the language you are comfortable with), check the button on Keyboard layout/IME: and click on US.
Finally click OK on that window, then on the Text Services window (the one you are now), choose English (United States) (or the language you chose), and US as layout. click OK and restart Windows.

Wrong keyboard


I suggest this, of course if you'd like: you change the keyboard layout to English (if you want to use English), can be UK or US.
Then you change what is written in the keyboard buttons with the correct one ("English" letters).
I know much in Windows, in Linux frankly speaking I don't know much (Linux has too many types). I got from this site:
http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:change_keyboard_layout_in_advanced_mode
how to change the keyboard layout:
In Advanced Mode the default keyboard layout is set to the US. These instructions inform KDE to use a different layout; for example the UK.
  • Launch / Control Centre / Control Centre, and select Peripheral Devices / Keyboard Layout
  • Under Available layouts select your country then click Add ».
  • Change layout variant to eeepc.
  • Click Apply.
  • Under Active layouts select U.S. English then click Remove.
  • Click Apply.
You can find the international keyboard layout here (example for English US):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout#US

If your computer already set for English keyboard layout, if you push your button, it should follow that international keyboard layout. (can be with some small modification). You can just try out for each button.
