Hi,

You might have a hardware issue with your laptop keyboard. You have at least 2 options:

1) connect a "normal" USB keyboard to your laptop and use it, instead

2) run the On-Screen Keyboard (osk.exe) and access the characters/keys you want from there

Good Luck!

My number keys doesn't let me type the at sign, or any of the upper case symbols


In some notebooks/laptops, the function key needs to be pressed to use upper case symbols. Mostly, this key is named as Fn. Try using the key, may be in combination with shift key to use upper case symbols.

I cleaned my laptop keyboard and now all of my symbol keys are messed up. I am pretty sure that I hit a button or combination of buttons that caused the problem but I don't know how to undo it.


Ctrl + Alt then Shift and test.

Remove other languages. Go to Control Panel > Regional and Language Options. In Languages tab, click details. Remove extra / other Installed service.

I cant get my 'at' key to work.


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.
