Hi Amanda,

You have a key, next to the ctrl key at the bottom left, in a different color (maybe blue).
Press and hold that, as you press the respective key at the top (also blue), regarding ->num lk <-
If this isn’t sufficient, ->comment back<-, and well have another look at it.

The number sign

If when you hit Shift+3 (standard location for # on US Keyboards) some other symbol is shown then you need to change the Keyboard regional settings in Control Panel -> Language and Keyboard (or Region and language) select Keyboard, and change the current language and layout to US English.

If nothing shows when you use the key, then you may need to cleanup or replace your keyboard.

Cannot use shift key + number for numbers 1 through 4 and 7 through nine.Cant make any symbols(at sign,exclamation sign).I tried reinstalling keyboard driver,choosing different language,so on and so...


You might have a hardware issue with your laptop keyboard. You have at least 2 options:

1) connect a "normal" USB keyboard to your laptop and use it, instead

2) run the On-Screen Keyboard (osk.exe) and access the characters/keys you want from there

Good Luck!

My mac laptop will not type certain letters. Instead, they come out as symbols. For example, I cannot type "g". It comes out as the copyright symbol.

Well what i learnt with MAC and pretty much any system is the keyboard when setting it up, if it is done in a different country format it will come out different when you type..
e.g. I have my HP G60-235DX and i Reinstalled the OS and then did the keyboard upon setup for UK english and i am in the U.S. and it came out totally different.. My @ is usually my number 2 not it is the " open quotation sign for my number 2 and my original open quotation sign is my @ sign, and this was all working fine once redone to american setup for the keyboard...
Check into that and see if the wrong setup was selected for the keyboard may have to call apple if not sure where to go for that...
99% of the time that is the issue and reason being is that keyboard and mose are like standard drives those dont require the software drivers just start up drivers and they work, so try to rethink and see in setup what was selected...
Give it a shot... what you got to lose more that a twisted keyboard... thank you

Scrambled keyboard

Is it giving you numbers and symbols? do this: Press and hold the function key fn while pressing the num lock key num lk . This will deactivate the integrated keyboard/numeric keypad, and the keys will respond normally.

What sign is it that it gives you? your keyboard may be set up for the wrong region. are all the signs like that? or just the @ one? In Windows XP to change the keyboard layout: Control Panel -> Regional and Language -> Languages Tab -> Details and the keyboard language should be English US.
