    Im using the same keyboard before I started formatting the hard disk. and i borrowed another keyboard from a friend to see if its just my keyboard that started to malfunction in the middle of reformatting but the other keyboards just dont work.

Your problem is that you need the file for your keyboard. This sucks because you are already in the middle of a reboot situation. Do you have your old keyboard or another one to get you through?

    There are 3 things that you have to do. 1 I don't know the software(not that it matters), Can you boot to DOS? if you can and are able to type there then it is NOT the keyboard

    2. If you can, try running the reinstall from there(DOS), this should work.

    3. If this does not work can you do an auto reinstall from the CD with all keyboards disconnected until the software asks you for one

@ appears when pressing shift 2


In american keyboard shift+2 is @, latin-american keyboard shift+2 is ".
Im guessing ur problem is the language setup of ur keyboard, depending on ur OS, go to control panel, Clock, Language and Region, Change keyboard or other input methods, Change keyboards and there u got to add urs :D,
Sometimes it switches back to english, so if u want to make sure it doesnt happen, after u add ur keyboard language, remove the other one that u dont need.

Selecting booting device


Normally with the new laptops you have to press F2 to access your bios settings, you will definitely be able to select the boot device from there.

If F2 does not work startup your laptop and watch the screen, there must be an option that will tell you which key to press to enter bios.

If the screen comes and goes to fast for you, press the pause button on your keyboard so you can read it at your own time and do your actual selection.

Hope it helps.

HOW TO ACTIVATE XP PRO USING A COPY OF XP PRO?


If it is a copy, and not genuine, it won't work. It is impossible to make an exact copy of Microsoft product CDs. They detect it. Also, if you do install it, you cannot use it without any limitations. 
So be legal and search for an old XP CD. It is out of sale now, until stocks last, but it went out 6 months ago.
You can buy and install the superb new Vista or even buy and download it safely from the Microsoft website.
