    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.

Shift key and symbols dont match


You can change the keyboard layout to match the one you have.

In your start box, select run and type "intl.cpl" (without quotes).

Under the formats tab, change the format. try the ones with English (" ") and then click apply.
To see the format selected,open the On-screen keyboard ( type "osk.exe" in run) and hold shift to view the symbols.
Try different formats until you find something that matches the phisical keyboard layout.

How to use the this " @ " key on dell vostro 1015 laptop ?


This can be a little tricky. You will need to hold down your "Shift" key located below your "Enter" key and then while holding that key down press the number 2 above your "Q" and "W" keys. This handy little trick can be used to access any of the symbols located on each of the number keys.

I donot have anything wrong with my laptop i just


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.
