Keys do not input correctly - 2 round the wrong

I have an HP keyboard with Arabic characters (which I don't use). The '' and @ keys do what the other one is supposed to do. How do I get them to do their own thing?

    How can I type Japanese o keybord?


    Hai ! This is possible : )

    Type in Chinese, Japanese, and other character-based languages

    To type text on your computer in character-based languages, such as Chinese and Japanese, follow these steps:


    [Source: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Type-in-Chinese-Japanese-and-other-character-based-languages]

    1. Add the language as an input language. If you want to use an input method editor (IME), make sure you select it when you add the input language. For more information, see Add an input language.
      Add an input language

      You can edit documents in multiple languages by changing the language (the input language) in which you type. Input languages are included with Windows, but you need to add them to your list of languages before you can use them.

      1. Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.

      2. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab, and then click Change keyboards.

      3. Under Installed services, click Add.

      4. Double-click the language you want to add, double-click the text services you want to add, select the text services options you want to add, and then click OK.



    1. Change your input language to the language you installed. For more information, see Change your input language.


    Change your input language

    The input language is a setting in Windows that controls the language you use to type information on your computer. Before you can change an input language, you need to add that language to Windows. For more information, see Add an input language.
    To change the input language

    Click the Input language button on the Language bar, and then click the input language you want to use.

    1. Change your keyboard layout to the desired layout. For more information, see Change your keyboard layout.


    Change your keyboard layout

    You can customize your keyboard for a specific language or format by changing the keyboard layout. The layout controls which characters appear on the screen when you press the keys on your keyboard. Some input languages have several keyboard layouts; others have only one. For example, you can change your keyboard layout from the English QWERTY format to the English Dvorak format. After you change the layout, the characters on your screen might not correspond to the characters on your keyboard keys.

    Before you can change the keyboard layout, you must add the input language and keyboard layout that you want to use to Windows. For more information, see Add an input language.

    TIP:
    After you are done you can switch between Japanese and English very easily by manually pressing the on screen buttons or using keyboard commands like SHIFT+ALT to switch between Japanese (???) and the Alphabet.

    Problem with keyboard setting: quotation marks don't show when I press the key, only after I press a second key. Also sometimes not then -- eg single quote followed by c gives me c-cedilla! How to change?...


    This "input-method" is a feature that is used in some non-English languages, to easily generate characters like 'C-cedilla'.

    Click Start
    Click Control Panel
    Click Regional Settings
    Set your Input Language to "English-US", to make the keyboard work "one-graphic-for-one-key-press".

    My toshiba laptop is typing wrong characters but my wireless tevion keyboard is o k. Is there a solution to this ?


    Sounds like the laptop keyboard went bad and thats why its typing wrong characters. Best way to verify this is to use a USB keyboard on the laptop, if the USB keyboard is typing the correct keys then you know the laptop keyboard is bad. If the USB keyboard is typing the wrong keys as well then you know its a setting in windows that is causing the keys to type wrong characters.

    Does it type " by any chance when you press the @ key? if so this is usually because keyboard input is set to the wrong language in the regional & language settings are wrong in the control panel. try pressing the left alt key & shift at same time first this is a quick key to change between input languages.
