My Acer key board can not display the at sign above TWO key shows inverted commas instead and the hash sign above THREE shows a Pound sign? Please assist


Hold down the ALT(ernate) GR(aphic) key -- to the right of the SPACE BAR on your keyboard.
Press the '2' key.
Release the '2' key.
Release the ALT GR key.
Does an '@' display?

Check that you are using the "American English" keyboard mapping.
Control Panel -> Regional options.

How do you get to type the @ function on the keyboard, when there are 4 functions that you can get from that key - I keep getting a 2 when I want to type my email address on my new laptop.


Just hold <Shift> and then press the <2> key at the upper-right of the keyboard. Do the same with <!>, <#>, <$>, <%>, <^>, <&>, <*>, <(>, <)>, <_>, <+>.

Keyboard


Hi, "I suggest that you try reconfiguring the way the Keyboard functions. Click on the Start button, in the [Start Search Window] type: keyboards; the "Keyboard" will appear in the shortcut menu. Next, select to open, make all the changes to your specifications, "Apply and OK" all changes. After you are finished, Restart the Computer. If this helped; let me know by giving a "helpful rating," thanks.

Some keys on my laptop dont work


Trying a desktop keyboard is useful for determining if it is a keyboard problem or a software problem. This usualy happens if some liquid has gotten into the keyboard, but you said thats not possible. Try to boot into bios, the first screen that pops up when you boot, on a toshiba it is usually pressing F1 or Del. then if your Arrow keys don't work there, you need a new keyboard.

Symbols gone crazy


The keyboard appears to be defective, but if you replace it and you still have issues, then the matrixing chip on the motherboard is bad and you will have to change the motherboard as well. Let me know, and vote.

I have an Advent wireless keyboard problem


Your keyboard is probably set to the wrong region.

Start, control panel,Regional and language options,languages,details.

select united kingdom keyboard and delete the usa one.

this is right for XP - If your using Vista it might be different.

Also I bet the @ key will give you a " sign so this could be a temporary fix
