    Computer needed replaced. After trying several keys, found out they seemed to be wired wrong and were all over the keyboard. A replacement was the only fix! Thanks all for all the help!

If the shift key still works maybe the keyboard is set in "uk layout" the@ is on a different key. its on the one directly above the up arrow on the righthand side shift key.
i had the reverse problem the @ symbol was on the 2 key. just had to right click the taskbar go to toolbars. place a tick against language bar. then right click on the new icon on the taskbar and change the default input language.

Sounds like a keyboard airing out, or a replacement session.

If you are referring to the?< > { } symbols and characters, in order to get to these symbols, hold down the "Shift" key while hitting the key with the symbol you are trying to get. Any keys with one symbol on top of the key and one on the bottom of the same key, pressing the shift key allows for the symbol on the top of that key.

I have an acer aspire 5610 laptop. Some of the keys on the keyboard do different things to what the symbol on them represents: the @ symbol looks like its near the 'enter' key, but i have to hold down...


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.
