Your keyboard is probably set to the wrong region.

Start, control panel,Regional and language options,languages,details.

select united kingdom keyboard and delete the usa one.

this is right for XP - If your using Vista it might be different.

Also I bet the @ key will give you a " sign so this could be a temporary fix

My Acer key board can not display the at sign above TWO key shows inverted commas instead and the hash sign above THREE shows a Pound sign? Please assist


Hold down the ALT(ernate) GR(aphic) key -- to the right of the SPACE BAR on your keyboard.
Press the '2' key.
Release the '2' key.
Release the ALT GR key.
Does an '@' display?

Check that you are using the "American English" keyboard mapping.
Control Panel -> Regional options.

Go to control panel and check the regional and language settings. make sure it all says English and/or United States, if you are in the states that is, otherwise the keyboard will be different.

Two keyboard keys seem to have been transposed


Yes when going through the setting up procedure for your new computer you should have installed the British keyboard instead of the US one.

Doing the above will correct your problem.

I had the same problem. When I pressed shift and that comma key I got a " instead of a @.

I looked to see what on the leyboard you normally press to get a " and that's the number 2 key.

Tried pressing shift and the 2 key and hey presto, I got a @.

So it looks like @ and " have swapped places.

So shift and 2 for a @!

Computer keyboard.


The problem does not lie in your keyboard, but rather the keyboard layout settings. Go to control panel, keyboard options and select the standard US settings.
