My @ is not working in the right place it works on the no 2 key

You are using a keyboard layout (software) that does not match your keyboard (hardware).
For example, if your keyboard is made for typing German, but you have activated a layout for typing English, the @ is not on Ctrl-Alt-Q where you expect it to be, but on Shift-2.

Solution 1: activate a keyboard layout matching your keyboard.
Solution 2: get used to the non-matching layout :-) There is a built-in utility to show a virtual keyboard onscreen. That will make it easier to find out how to type the various special characters.

Can I connect a wired keyboard to my Vaio in place of the wireless one?


Yes you can connect any PS/2 or USB keyboard to your Vaio laptop.

At the side of the laptop you will find a similar port just like the pin the keyboard cord has.

My sister has a Dell Latitude CPxJ650GT computer with a Dell Keyboard. She is unable to use the keys 67yuhjm on the keyboard. What can she do to repair this problem? Thank you for your kind...

  • Step 1
Buy a can of compressed air and spray it on the keyboard if your keys are sticking together. This is the easiest thing you can do to fix the keys on your keyboard. It doesn't work for all problems, but it's a good place to start. Make sure you get the air down inside the keys to clean out any debris, hair or food that may have gotten caught in there.
  • Step 2 Replace the inside of the keyboard with a new piece. One of the major problems with Dell keyboards is that the plastic pieces holding the keys in place become loose or broken. You can find a cheap keyboard from Wal-Mart or an electronics store. Simply take apart the new keyboard, pull the keys off your keyboard, lay the plastic piece on top and replace your keys.
  • Step 3 Use a small dab of super glue to replace keys that have fallen off. Dell laptops often have keys that fall off, especially as the computer ages or is used quite frequently. Place a small dab of glue directly on the round part that holds the key in place and lightly press the key down. When the glue dries, you'll be able to use your laptop again.
  • Step 4 Remove any problem keys from your keyboard and look at the plastic retainers. At times these retainers can become broken, damaged or simply fall off. Carefully pull off the retainer, clean it off with some compressed air and snap it back into place. Then put the key back into the slot and everything should work fine.
  • Step 5 Consult the Dell manuals website to get information on your specific laptop computer. The manual will include information on troubleshooting and repairing any problems with your laptop. If you find that none of their suggestions work, you can also use the website to find the customer servicemag-glass_10x10.gif number. You'll need to call the number and ask for help or advice.

    Keyboard doesn't keep up with typing. it freezes up as i type and i am having to continually go back and start over.

    I'm assuming this is a wireless keyboard - these things are usually the result of one of two things (Besides simply being a poor quality keyboard):

    1) Low battery - Try placing fresh batteries in your keyboard.

    2) Interference between keyboard and receptor - Ideally, they should be placed on the same surface at the same height, with nothing in between them to block the signal. If your receptor is not on the same level as your keyboard, this could definitely cause problems like the one you're describing.

    Try it, hope it helps.

    Have you tried going into Control Panel; Clock, Language and Region; under Regional and Language options choose change keyboards and other input methods. Then check that you have the correct keyboard for your region: in the UK and the US the @ and the " are in directly opposite places.
