Asus laptop keyboard not tying correct characters?


check your language settings for the keyboard. For example if you use a setting for Canada, the keyboard will often default to French Canadian, and will have different settings than US English. Without more information about the issue you are having it is kind of hard to know how to help.

I cannot access the @ sign on my french keyboard


Have you set the keyboard to the correct language within your operating systems regional and language options in the control panel as sometimes the keys are transposed e.g. shift+2 can produce the @ sign if the language is set to the default American keyboard layout.

Configure to Skype
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.

I cannot get a question mark, the upper case E with a grave (green) on keyboard appears


When you get that it usually means the language setting for the keyboard has changed.

The standard key markings are valid for most english language settings. US is the default. To change this go to start - settings - control panel. Then look for Regional and language settings. Click on that and then in the window that open there are three tabs along the top. The middle one should say language, click on that one. In the Text Languages and input options area click on the Detail button. A new window opens. At the top it shows your language. And in the box under it will show your lnaguage and installed keyboard layout. So if I were using Canadian English and the US keyboard then the keys will function as marked. To change the keyboard language click the add button, then select your language and then the keyboard layout. When you click ok it goes back to the previous window but now will show the original setup and the new one you just made. Just remove the original and apply and close everything and your keyboard will now produce the correct characters.

How to change the language setting to English?


Computers running Windows®, you have the option of typing alternative character sets. This can be selected by clicking on START>SETTINGS> CONTROL PANEL. Then click on the picture of the world globe. This enables users to toggle between Arabic or Hebrew and English. This requires you to learn the keyboard layout for these languages

First, select the desired language.(the default in the U.S. is U.S. English If your computer was sold in a French spealing country, the keyboard might be different. If this is the case, the only solution could be a new keyboard
