Make sure the country code is correct. Wrong country and it will produce a " sign.

I would check for firmware updates. Basically make sure you have all your updates. I would see if the Key is working at all. the 2 or the SHIFT key. It may be a hardware issue if its just that key. Which would result in needing a replacement keyboard.

Got an HP Laptop. Need to change language of keyboard to English as when I press a symbol, it brings up an incorrect one.


In the bottom right hand corner of your screen (on the taskbar), you'll see either a symbol of a keyboard (Windows Vista or Windows 7), or two letters together (Windows XP). This symbol represents the language you're currently using for your keyboard. Click on that symbol with your mouse, and select which language you'd like to use (In this case english) to resolve this problem

Cannot find @ and # symbol on HP mini Vivienne Tam Keyboard


Sounds like you're setup for England rather than USA in Windows settings, at least the keyboard settings.

The at symbol on my dell inspiron laptop won't work


The @ symbol should be SHIFT + 2 if you are getting a different character, then you may have a incorrect regional setting. Go to Control Panel, and ensure that the Regional & Language settings are correct for your location and check the settings on each of the three tabs.
If all is correct there, then run the system diags Fn + Power button and see if the keys match what tehy show in the diags.

Shift key problem


That means the symbol assigned for shift-2 is currently assigned to the top left character, likely the " symbol. Press shift-Fn to toggle between symbols until the @ symbol works.
