Hello,
The keyboard is configured from inside the operating system to output the characters of another language. Go to the regional and language options in Control Panel. Under the Languages Tab click the button Details, and make sure that the input language you use when you start the computer is your own language (top drop down list). In the window Installed services verify that the the keyboard that is shown in boldface is your country's keyboard.
If your contry's keyboad is not present you can click the Add button to add it.

Hope it helps.

Legal characters


Basically the letters, number, and other characters that are on the keyboard. Not the ALT+ combinations. If you're pasting from a word processor, use the "Paste as plain text" option.

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.
