Yes you can, you'll find keyboard and mouse settings in control panel, you need keyboard layout and languages, just choose englishUK or US, settings for layout and click apply, it may ask for the XP instal disk so have it handy, same goes for vista also

good luck

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

How do u use the @ symbol on the keyboard


The @ symbol and the number 2 key share the key.
To select the @ symbol - hold the SHIFT key and then press the number 2 key.
If you are not getting the @ symbol then most likely your keyboard was not or changes from the US keyboard.
If this is the case there would be other wrong symbols on your keyboard.

Hey my friends keyboard is typing letters incorrectly, can you help? It started when she tried remote assistance on the windows live program, and she has windows xp with a gateway keyboard


It may be that the default settings for the keyboard have been set to a different language/regional area.

You could try changing it and see if it works.

If you wish to change the keyboard layout, you can do this by right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings".

Alternatively, go start>control panel>regional settings> and change it there.
