How to make at sign work on asus laptop?


If your @ sign is not working it is probably a regional setting in your control panel. Your Keyboard is probably set to the the wrong layout
This will be slightly different for Windows 7 vs Windows 8 so check the control panel for Regional settings, input, keyboard settings. you will need to change your keyboard layout. If the @ sign is ontop of the number "2" then select US otherwise select UK. That should help.

check the keyboard settings are correct. eg a US keyboard setting will give the @ symbol where the " symbol is. look in control panel/ keyboard/language settings for your options

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...


Hi,

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!

I can no longer sign into my laptop, my keyboard does not work but keystrokes happen at sign in they are 333333333333333333333333 which types itself so canot sign into anything. Can you help? Do you...


It could possibly (but rather unlikely) be a virus. However, it sounds more like the keyboard is jammed / broken. You can get replacements online, but fitting them could be an issue, i'd suggest taking it to a tech repair shop and getting them to swap the old keyboard out for a new one. This should fix the problem.

You could try plugging in an external keyboard via USB and seeing if this makes a difference.

Thanks

B and n keys not working on HP Probook 4520. Can't sign on to computer because need b for part of password.


Until you can get the keyboard of the laptop replaced, you can buy a USB to AT keyboard adapter and hook a desktop keyboard to your system. Also a USB keyboard would work just fine directly plugged-in to one of the USB ports.
Most likely the fix will be to replace the keyboard, which is usually very easy to remove on laptops, but until you can get it fixed, you'll be able to use the system with the regular AT keyboard.
If you want to try to replace the keyboard yourself, I believe I've found it on the HP web site (you will need to confirm that it is the correct keyboard by contacting HP)

Im using vista as my os. and my laptop is hp pavilion, both my control keys are not working. what should i do?


You might have changed settings of stickey keys

Check the setting in start- control panel- ease of access center- make keyboard easier to use.

Go to sticky keys -uncheck the box.

Also check the other settings in it.

It will resolve your issue.

If yes.. if not..you might need to remove the keyboard driver from device manager.

English language support on laptop with German Keyboard


The easiest solution will be to locate a replacement laptop keyboard for that model. they arent hard to replace and usually cost between $40 and $80. I would web search HP Spare parts Third party is usually cheaper. Keyboards are pretty common replacements on laptops due to wear an tear. Most are replaced using a small phillips screwdriver. Its likley you can find removal instructions on the web as well (if they dont come packaged with the keyboard.

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.

for more details visit this website: http://www.starr.net/is/type/kbh.html
