This is because it is set to US english keyboard layout rather than UK English layout.

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Keyboard

and change the language settings.,.

Pound sign


Press and Hold the Shift Key then hit the number 3 key. The # sign is on the 3 key, but since it is above the number 3 that means you have to press and hold the shift key.

Where is the pound sign?


Totype the Euro sign in Windows, you press the alt key+0128. As for the Sterlingpound symbol, you can type it by pressing the alt key+0163. You can have a lookat this site where it lists ways to type currency symbols.

The pound symbol


I am unable to answer your problem that why you are not getting the required symbol if it is there (Hope that you are pressing the no. 3 with Shift key pressed).
But if you need a Pound sign you can get it by pressing 0163 key from the right side numeric keypad while pressing the alt key (i.e. alt+0163).
Remember that you cannot use the upper number key for this purpose.
