Try using the other shift key. If that works, then you most likely have a dirty or defective keyboard.
Does the number 2 work? Does your shift key product uppercase letters (does it work with other keys?)
If you are having problems with a flaky keyboard, it's pretty inexpensive to replace it and reduce your stress.

This is not helpful. I have the same problem. On the actual key on a Gateway computer is an @ sign and a " at the top of the key and a 2 and a @ sign at the bottom of the key. When I shift and key it I get the " . When I don't shift I get the 2. Any help?

Cant find @ symbol tried shift and alt and number 2.bought in canada im now in uk


Being Canadian I can assure you that the @ symbol is produced by holding down the shift key and pressing the number 2. This keyboard may have a different setup, or you may need to change your language settings on your computer from Start>Control Panel.
Alternatively, you can open a virtual keyboard from Start>Programs>accessories>accessibilty>virtual keyboard

My shift 2 is not working right to type in my email address instead of at i get this "


Your keyboard may have gotten switched to UK English setting. Whatever key you see the " on, try holding down Shift and hitting that key. I wouldn't be surprised if @ shows up.

As a last resort, open Microsoft Word, go to Insert>Symbols and open and copy the @ symbol there to a text doc on your desktop and you can paste it in until you get a new keyboard or change the settings.

Shift key problem


That means the symbol assigned for shift-2 is currently assigned to the top left character, likely the " symbol. Press shift-Fn to toggle between symbols until the @ symbol works.
