Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Keyboard

and change the language settings...

How can I write a pound sign by using a dell keyboard


The easiest way is to hold down the Alt key and type "156", then release the Alt key. You will see a British pound (£) sign appear. However, sometimes "pound" means the number sign (#), but that's mostly used in voicemail prompts.
If you use the first pound symbol a lot, you can either keep it on the clipboard, or consider remapping a key you never use (like the tilde, or ~) to type that character (see http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article02-022).

Hope this helps!

Look for a KeyMapper program on your system. It sounds as if some keys have been remapped on your system. If that's the case, any keyboard will exhibit the same symptoms and, of course, they work fine on other systems with no remapped keys.

You have your keyboard set as US. If you go into control panel, open Regional and Language options and change all of the settings with a country to UK. That will solve your problem.
