I have had this problem before. The solution was to clear the CMOS memory on the motherboard. The easiest way to do this is: Turn off and unplug pc from the mains. Open the case. Carefully remove the round lithium battery you see on the motherboard. wait 30 secs, then put it back in, close up the pc and turn back on. Note: If you have never done anything inside your computer before, you must be careful to touch as little as possible and be gentle. I hope this helps you.

My @ is not working in the right place it works on the no 2 key


You are using a keyboard layout (software) that does not match your keyboard (hardware).
For example, if your keyboard is made for typing German, but you have activated a layout for typing English, the @ is not on Ctrl-Alt-Q where you expect it to be, but on Shift-2.

Solution 1: activate a keyboard layout matching your keyboard.
Solution 2: get used to the non-matching layout :-) There is a built-in utility to show a virtual keyboard onscreen. That will make it easier to find out how to type the various special characters.

Hello
If the new keyboard is behaving same, then try to plug in an external keyboard to see if that works okay. You can use any USB keyboard. If this keyboard works, you have a hardware problem and need repair from Sony Support.
Hope this helps, Good Luck

Gateway model KR-0817 WILL NOT TYPE I HAVE TO USE THE ON SRCEAN TO TYPE


Make sure the keyboard's "tail" is plugged-in to the _keyboard_ slot on the motherboard.

Try the keyboard on another computer, to see if it works at all.

Connect a "known-working" keyboard to your computer, to see if _any_ keyboard works.

Try a keyboard with a USB "tail".
