    What do you mean by changed? When pressing Shift+2 you don't get the "@"?

How To Change The Default Keyboard Layout in Windows 7 and Windows Vist

Having problems with your keyboard?
How to change your default keyboard layout within Windows 7 and Windows Vista.

This is a keyboard problem that a lot of non US computer users run into when using a new computer or one that is newly formatted.

Users find that some of the keys on the keyboard don't seem to match what is appearing on the screen in front of them when pressed. The two main keys are the @ and "(2) which switch places.

What is happening is that by default, Windows will setup a US keyboard layout at install which when used on a physical UK keyboard doesn't match up the @ and ".

This is a really quick and easy problem to solve which just requires a couple of settings to be changed within Windows.

This walkthrough is for both Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Changing keyboard setting is the same process in both versions of Windows.

My numbers keypad is not working

Step 1:
Laptop or Desktop ?
ENABLE NUMLOCK KEYS USING REGITRY Check the LED light that indicates whether or not the Number Lock is enabled. If the light is on, press the "Num Lock" key on your keyboard. Look for the light to turn off, signaling that the Number Lock has been disabled. Change your Number Lock status at start up (Number Lock is disabled on start-up by default). Click "Start," then "Run" and type "regedit" to pull up the Windows Registry. Open the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\" folder, then subsequently open the "Control Panel\" and "Keyboard\" folders. Double-click on "InitialKeyboardIndicators" and change its Data Value to "1," to disable Number Lock on start-up. A value of "2" would turn the Number Lock on after you log in, while a "0" value would result in it turning off after you log in.

CHANGE THE DEFAULT NUMLOCK KEY b> Go to the Start menu. From the Start menu choose "Run." Type in "regedit." Hit "OK" to open the regedit application. This allows you to change your computer's default settings. Navigate to the keyboard's default settings. Using the navigation bar at the left, choose "HKey_Users" then "Default" then "Control Panel" and finally "Keyboard." Look at the right side of the window. On the right are the various default options you can change for your keyboard. Double click on "InitialKeyboardIndicators" to change the NumLock default. A window will pop up. Change the NumLock default by entering a 0 or 2 in the "Value Data" field. Enter a 0 to have the NumLock set to off by default. To set the NumLock to on by default, enter 2. Hit the "OK" button to save your changes. Restart you computer. Your NumLock default changes will not take effect until your computer has been restarted.

Keyboard types wrong characters


You may have a wrong default keyboard layout.
To resolve this please do the following:
Assuming you are using Windows 7, click Start->Control Panel, and then go to the "Clock, language and region" icon, and click on the "Change keyboards or other input methods" link.
When the window opens, click the "Change keyboards" button.
When the window opens, check the default input language. Assuming you are in the U.S. If it doesn't say "English (United States) - US" then you need to change that by highlighting the wrong language, and clicking on the "Remove" button.
As a last step, restart the computer to make sure the settings are applied.

Laptop key board are messd up

If you have changed the keyboard type in 'regional and language options' you can manually pull of the keys and stick them back on where they should be. It sounds like someone has done that to your keyboard so no regional setting could fix this.
Instructions for Windows Vista
Click Start and then Control Panel In Control Panel, if you are in Classic View, click on Control Panel Home (top left corner) Open Clock, Language, and Region Click on Regional and Language Options. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab and then click Change keyboards. Under Installed services, click Add. In the Add Input Language dialog box, select the keyboard layout you would like to add from the list available and click OK. The keyboard layout you added will be included in the list. To set the new layout as your default, select it from the list. Click OK to save your changes You can switch between different input languages (= keyboard languages) by clicking on the Language Bar button or by pressing the Alt + Shift keys

Keys on keyboard not working properly

go control panel, hit mouse and find default settings. hit default, ok and do a reset on your computer.
If you have a special install disk for your mouse when the system starts back up ,test your keys then install the disk(or CD). if this does not correct your problem , check to see if someone changed the language on your pc. If english, buy a new keyboard.

Dell Inspiron 6400 keyboard types " when you select @ how do I change this?

you have the wrong keyboard settings,

i trust you are using windows, you need to go into control panel, and find regional and language options, when the new window options take the second tab (languages)

press details button and check you keyboard settings .

you may need to add a new keyboard and delete the current one.
if you have just installed you operating system it is set to the default settings, if it has been installed for a while but has only just had this problem maybe someone changed the settings.

you may even be able to change settings using the language bar at the bottom of the screen.
