Re: keyboard

You have probably got your keyboard set at the wrong language, go to control panel>regional and language options and see if your location is set there.

I just had my computer I cant get the AT symbol. I used to press shift and 2 now it gives me " instead...

It could be that a key is stuck on your keyboard. Try pressing all of the Shift, CTRL, and ALT keys a couple times. Try again. Also, try rebooting if that doesn't help.

How do I choose symbols such as @ from the keys that have several symbols?

Hold down the blue "fn" button when you press the key, it will give you the alternate character.

When i am typing @ cant instead @ the letter is " please help

The keyboard is set up wrongly or the laptop isn't one set up for your country.
If you get " when typing @ try typing SHIFT and 2 for the @ symbol.
You can change keyboard settings in Control Panel.

Cannot find @ and # symbol on HP mini Vivienne Tam Keyboard

Sounds like you're setup for England rather than USA in Windows settings, at least the keyboard settings.

Hp mini keyboard shift key 2 does not type @

it has to do with your keyboard setting, currently you are set to the united kingdom keyboard layout, you will need to change this to Unite States settings assuming that you got vista, you will need to do the following

goto control panel
click on regional and language option (there will be a pop up)
click on the keyboard and languages tab
click on the change keyboard button (another pop up will appear)
click on add
and add the United States Keyboard
change the keyboard setting on the upper drop down menu to United States, and then click ok.....this should solve your problem.

Here is the fix.

  3. Open Clock, Language, and Region
  4. Click on Regional and Language Options.
  5. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab and then click Change keyboards.
  6. Under Installed services, click Add.
  7. In the Add Input Language dialog box, select the keyboard layout you would like to add from the list available and click OK.
  8. The keyboard layout you added will be included in the list. To set the new layout as your default, select it from the list. Click OK to save your changes
  9. You can switch between different input languages (= keyboard languages) by clicking on the Language Bar button or by pressing the Alt + Shift keys

Your keyboard has a factory setting to US as default. You can confirm this by pressing shift and 2 and you will get the @ sign. If I am correct, then you will have to go to the control panel and change the region /language etc. US default is common as all manufacturers expect purchasers to personalise their gadgets when they get them home. I hope this solves it for you.

Ibm t30 keyboard stuck in odd mode


You've activated Euro mode. This is toggled by pressing holding the Fn key plus an Fkey that has an icon in the same color as the lettering on the Fn key that looks like the Euro symbol. Press the Fn key plus the Euro key to toggle out of Euro mode.
