Hi, I'm not sure if I've completely understood your problem...but it sounds as though you have to press " on the keyboard to get @ onscreen, and @ on the keyboard to get " onscreen . Is that right?

If so, your keyboard may not be set up properly for your country.

Try going to Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language settings. Make sure all the settings shown are correct for your country. On the Languages tab, click 'Details' to ensure the language and details settings shown here are also correct for your country.

If this solution is not detailed enough, search windows help on your computer for 'keyboard regional settings' . Of course, if any of this does not solve your problem, please come back to Fixya. :)

What's the FN key and where is it on my Dell Inspirion 570 desktop computer?


There is typically no FN key on a desktop PC keyboard if it is full size. The Dell website does not show FN keys on their standard keyboards for desktops. A mini keyboard would have one however. You can buy a mini keyboard for your PC, which has a FN key:

The character keys and numeral keys dont print only make a noice when pressed


From your query I interprete as they key is not displayed in the screen. First check with the external usb keyboard. If the external keyboard is also not working, please check the keyboard layout in the control panel regional settings. If the external keyboard is working well, change the laptop keyboard.

Hi, I was given a Dell Inspirion 1720 laptop as a gift . The problem is that there is a password on it and we dont know what it is


Boot in safe mode (tap Delete key or F1 key or the specified key on the screen, when its booting). If it lets you log in as administrator without password, its done. Go to user accounts and create a new one for you. But if it doesn't work, you need to reinstall the OS using the recovery disk that comes with laptop. If you dont have any disk, buy the Windows OS disk from market. You can download the hardware drivers from Dell's website.

Dell D600 Latitude laptop. Spanish characters when using ALT key and a # do not work. Suggestion?


Go to Programs/Accessories/System Tools and click on Character Map. You will need to do a cut and paste of the character from there. Laptop keypads don't support the Alt# sequence for inserting characters like a conventional keyboard does.

ALT Codes


I'm a little late to the game, but...
I share James's frustration. Seems like a dumb thing for Dell to economize on. Here's my workaround, for what it's worth.
  1. Open the Windows on-screen keyboard (osk.exe). And, for later ease of use, pin it to your taskbar. (Detailed instructions: click on the Windows start button, type osk.exe in the search box, right-click on the program, select Pin to Taskbar.)
  2. On the virtual keyboard, open Options and select "Turn on the numeric keypad." After saving the setting, press the NumLock button.
  3. Here's the tricky bit: press and hold Alt on your physical keyboard, and then press and hold Fn, again on your physical keyboard. You're holding them both down, right? Keep doing it. Now enter your four-digit code on the virtual (on-screen) keyboard. Release the physical keys. You should have your special character.
Hope it works for you.

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 ' " '.
