Hi Javlex,
The keyboard is set to US English.
You''ll find that Shift ' will be @, as well.
To fix this, press Start, Settings, Control Panel, Regional Settings.
Set all the locales in there and restart your PC.

Fixya!

When i am typing @ cant instead @ the letter is " please help


The keyboard is set up wrongly or the laptop isn't one set up for your country.
If you get " when typing @ try typing SHIFT and 2 for the @ symbol.
You can change keyboard settings in Control Panel.

How do i find square root of a number on casio FX-115ES?


Press the square-root key (third row from the top, second column from the left). Type in the number and press =. If you get a symbolic result, press S-D to convert or else press SHIFT ENTER instead of ENTER. If you don't want to see any symbolic results, press SHIFT MODE 2 to switch to the LineIO mode.

I am not sure about the manufacturer of your laptop but generally it happens if you press Ctrl+Fun+Shift keys.

Hp mini keyboard shift key 2 does not type @


it has to do with your keyboard setting, currently you are set to the united kingdom keyboard layout, you will need to change this to Unite States settings assuming that you got vista, you will need to do the following

goto control panel
click on regional and language option (there will be a pop up)
click on the keyboard and languages tab
click on the change keyboard button (another pop up will appear)
click on add
and add the United States Keyboard
change the keyboard setting on the upper drop down menu to United States, and then click ok.....this should solve your problem.

I had the same problem. When I pressed shift and that comma key I got a " instead of a @.

I looked to see what on the leyboard you normally press to get a " and that's the number 2 key.

Tried pressing shift and the 2 key and hey presto, I got a @.

So it looks like @ and " have swapped places.

So shift and 2 for a @!
