Have you tried pressing the button "2" on your laptop? And have you tried pressing "Shift" and then "2"? If the number appears when pressing 2, but @ doesn't appear when pressing "Shift" and then "2", chances are your input language aren't correct. Go to Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Languages Tab. There you can set the proper input language for your keyboard.
Try using the on-screen keyboard as well. Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > On-Screen Keyboard. If @ works there, then its possible your keyboard might be faulty.
Please try to deactivate the Fn (function) key. That will help you get rid of your problem. Press Fn key + Numlock key once and try again. You can also try pressing the Fn key once and type letters in any word processor program with the key combination everytime you press the Fn key once. E.g. open the notepad, press Fn once and after that press ) with Shift.
The @ symbol should be SHIFT + 2 if you are getting a different character, then you may have a incorrect regional setting. Go to Control Panel, and ensure that the Regional & Language settings are correct for your location and check the settings on each of the three tabs.
If all is correct there, then run the system diags Fn + Power button and see if the keys match what tehy show in the diags.

Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Accessibility Options. The default panel that comes up will in fact be for the keyboard options. There you can turn off whatever happened to have been turned on. While you're there for each of the three options, press Settings, and uncheck Use Shortcut. Now Windows will no longer misinterpret your random keystrokes.
dear bangaloreboy , this may be due to your shift key is having a problem. This is permanently pressed or the other key is having some problem . If you think shift key is not causing a problem please check the key board settings from contol pannel .
I donot think this is caused by changing the operating system.
