Have you tried going into Control Panel; Clock, Language and Region; under Regional and Language options choose change keyboards and other input methods. Then check that you have the correct keyboard for your region: in the UK and the US the @ and the " are in directly opposite places.

Switch to use the "US English" keyboard,

Or, if your keyboard has an 'ALT(ternate) GRA(phic)' key, hold that key down, press the '?' key, and a '?' should be displayed.

Third function keyboard


The purpose of a laptop's function key is to activate the secondary function of any dual-purpose key.

The function key can accidentally be locked into place if you hit the wrong combination of keys so that all of the keys only perform their secondary function.

The exact process for unlocking the function key will vary depending on the make and model of your laptop and whether you have recently used an external keyboard.

1
Check the manual that came with your laptop and locate the section on the function of each keyboard key.

Open a Web browser and navigate to the support section of the laptop manufacturer's website if you do not have the manual that originally came with your laptop.

Use the drop-down menus on the support page to choose the specific product line and then model of your laptop.
2

Click on the "Product Support" link and then navigate to the "Manuals" section of the page. Click on the link to open a PDF version of the manual for your laptop.

Browse down to the section about the functions of the keyboard keys.
3

Find the sequence of keys you need to press to unlock the function key on your laptop.
Press and hold the function key on the keyboard and then press the other keys required to unlock it.
4

Try using the most standard keyboard combinations if you don't have the manual or it does not give any information about the function key.

Press the function key and then the shift key and see if it successfully unlocks the function key. Attempt using the other standard keys in conjunction with the function key, such as the "F11," "F12" and "Ctrl" keys.
5

Plug a USB keyboard into the USB port on your laptop if you have recently used an external keyboard with the laptop.

Check the light above the "Numlock" key on the external keyboard and see if it is turned on. Press the key and make sure the light is turned off and then remove the keyboard to unlock the function key.

Try holding the Fn key, usually blue, while pressing the "num lock" key, which is usually above the 7. This should release the number pad function of the keyboard.

Let me know if this doesn't fix the issue!

Hi Carol,

It seems that the function key (Fn) on the bottom left of the keyboard is stuck or jam. Try hitting the key multiple times or raise it with your fingers. Then try to press I and O again. Below the is image of the key you need to press and clear the jam from. You can also pat the keyboard/ laptop from at the bottom in case the jam wont clear by pressing the key.

You've probably got the keyboard set to the wrong region: in the US and the UK the @ and " keys are swapped.
In Control Panel, Regional Settings, Language Settings, Keyboard you can change your keyboard to the right region.
Hope this helps.
