    Sorry, yes Windows is set to English. It is a standard QWERTY keyboard. Generally, the @ symbol is on the right handside above the ' symbol. In this case, as it is a Japanese keyboard the @ symbol is on the right next to the P key.

    OK! A uk english keyboard is layed out right hand side  j k l ; ' with the @ symbol above the '

    This laptop is a japanese qwerty keyboard with the @ symbol to the right of the letter p

     I think you have misunderstood. A UK keyboard does not have the @ above the number 2. I have included pictures of both a UK keyboard and the japanese keyboard in question. Hopefully it's a bit clearer.

    Great that works! Doh! I eventually realised what you were saying. Thanks for all your help!

Using it in English mode? Does that mean that Windows is set to English??

Does it have a standard QWERTY english keyboard?? If it has a japanese keyboard, with windows set to English, then the keys will be different. Shift key with number 2 gives you the @ symbol on a QWERTY english keyboard.

    You contradicted yourself. Either it has a japanese keyboard or it has an english keyboard... if windows is set too english, then it assumes your using a US qwerty keyboard... which would put the @ symbol above the number 2. Using the shift and 2 in order to get the @ symbol. I would assume anyway....

    Making sure to use the number 2, which on a standard US keyboard, is found at the top left. Not right side.

    But with windows set to English, it will be above the number 2 as seen in the layout. In the future, please wait to vote on your solution until your problem has been solved. Thanx.

    Yes... BUT... lol.. what I am getting at, is, that if windows is setup to use a standard us english keyboard... then its doesnt matter whats visibly seen on the keys... the keystrokes will be that of a us english keyboard... putting the @ symbol above the number two, accessed using shift + 2 .... did the shift + 2 work??

Driver problem


The hitachi flora is a laptop exclusively sold ONLY in JAPAN! so all webpages relating to it are written in Japanese!

Here's is the original link to the driver download page for your hitachi flora nv7...

http://www.hitachi.co.jp/Prod/comp/OSD/pc/flora/download/type/flora270w_nv.htm

Drivers are ordered in segments as follows:

BIOS
Graphics
LAN& Modem
Sound
peripheral device
additional

The first drivers in each of the first 4 segments are the latest versions you should download, and you should download almost all the drivers (for your operating system XP or 2000) in the last 2 segments.

I used babelfish to translate frases (BLOCK OF TEXT) in this webpage from japanese to english and it worked! it didn't work to translate the whole webpage though. You can use it, give it a try!
