If your main input language is Spanish you should use a Spanish keyboard (Spain, Argentina, etc.) Bu if you need tildas infrequently, you may find it easier to have a list of ASCII codes for the letters that require a tilda. With the ASCII codes you type ALT + code. Another possibility id the installation of a virtual Spanish keyboard which you will pull down to select the special letters.
If you have a desktop computer system you can find keyboards at nearly every retail store. Any keyboard will work on any computer. (Well, this may not be 100% true. If your computer only has USB ports and no PS/2 style connectors - true for a few systems - you'll need a USB keyboard. Otherwise you can plug in anything.) There's no need to stay with the exact same keyboard that was supplied with your system, unless it had special-function keys like volume control or Web access. Even then you can buy keyboards with special keys, and they will come with the software you'll need to make them work.
With laptops it's a little more difficult since the keyboard needs to be an exact replacement, otherwise it won't fit the case and the connection to the motherboard won't be right. But there are many sources now, and for popular brands a lot of low-cost generic replacements are available. You don't always need to buy the original keyboard from the manufacturer. I find eBay to be a good place to look for keyboards (and other laptop components as well). I've found my last few keyboards, batteries and some display hinges from eBay sellers at good prices.
You haven't said what make and model computer you have so I can't be any more detailed. I hope you find this general information useful and that you get a new keyboard quickly. Thanks for using FIxya!
You probably have the wrong country listed in your keyboard layout. Each country has a different keyboard layout, as some languages need frequent access to accents and special characters.
I'm presuming you have Windows; and I don't know which version, so I can only give general instructions on how to fix it:
In Control Panel, there's a setting for 'regional settings' or 'region & language'...something like that. Click on it. In there somewhere is 'input settings' or 'keyboard settings'. Change this to the country you got the keyboard from.
For example, I'm English & living in Spain. So I loaded an English version of Windows, but I have to set it to 'Spanish keyboard' as I bought the laptop in Spain and the keys on the keyboard are in the Spanish configuration.
control pannel/systeem/country/langwitch/details/ add keyboard us (unated states intern) aplay and remove spain aplay restart and all wath on keys are marked wil be display by pressing in text doc and web pages
there are not any notebooks that I know of that have actual spanish keyboards.
to get windows in complete spanish, you will need to upgrade to windows ultimate to download the spanish language pack. if you just want to have minimal functions, you can always just use the basic language pack that is part of windows. not everything will be translated into spanish though.
