You can use the ASCII code, here is the table.
http://www.asciitable.com/

Most of the keys on the keyboard refer to an ASCII code. Like if you want to type the letter "A", just hold down the "Alt" key and type "65", then release the "Alt" key. Try it in notepad. I have used this trick a few times. Look at the extended ASCII codes.

ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange.

How to type @ symbol


I am not familiar with this particular keyboard, but it sounds like you are not finding that symbol (@) on the keyboard. On most keyboards it seems to be the shift of the "2" key (at the top of the keyboard, not on a separate number keypad). I checked keyboards from three manufacturers, and that was the case on all three. However, if that key is not working properly, you could define "(a)" or something similar to be auto-corrected to the "@" symbol. Finally, you could try typing the ASCII character by a keystroke combination such as Alt-0064. In MS Word, when I type that combination (make sure to use the numeric keypad, not the number row keys), I get the "@" symbol. The same works in many programs.

Hello
If the new keyboard is behaving same, then try to plug in an external keyboard to see if that works okay. You can use any USB keyboard. If this keyboard works, you have a hardware problem and need repair from Sony Support.
Hope this helps, Good Luck

If a neighbor will let you,disconnect their keyboard and try it on yours.If it works normal,the problem is the keyboard.They are fairly cheap to buy brand new.If it does not go away,something is wrong,most likely the IC which interprets the keyboard signal and converts it to letters.It sounds most likely to be the keyboard because it is a few characters consistently.Perhaps something was spilled in that section as they are quite close together.Good luck,Greg

Some keys of my keyboard doesnt work..(5,6,r,t,f,g,v)..


If they type something else instead then you need to hit the scroll lock key to release the keys. If nothing comes from typing the keys then you need a new keyboard. Best source is EBay if it is a laptop.

My keyboard letter types wrongly to type @ I have to press shift and 2


UK keyboards use a different key for @.
If you wish to change the keyboard layout, you can do this by right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings". Change the default language (to UK) and your keyboard will type correctly.

Keyboard & Mouse Problem


Seems like you Ctrl-key is pressed all the time somehow.
Make sure that none of the Ctrl-keys is stuck.
If you try another keyboard, everything should work fine, so just check your keyboard. Maybe you need to replace it.
