What sign is it that it gives you? your keyboard may be set up for the wrong region. are all the signs like that? or just the @ one? In Windows XP to change the keyboard layout: Control Panel -> Regional and Language -> Languages Tab -> Details and the keyboard language should be English US.

Hope that helps!

US Keyboard Setup.
Try Using The " Symbol Under { Symbol Or Over The ? symbol.
Change Keyboard Settings In Control Panel/Keyboard For a Keyset Of your Region/Choice.

P.s you Probably need to Add GB As The default Keyboard Settings.

How to make at sign work on asus laptop?

If your @ sign is not working it is probably a regional setting in your control panel. Your Keyboard is probably set to the the wrong layout
This will be slightly different for Windows 7 vs Windows 8 so check the control panel for Regional settings, input, keyboard settings. you will need to change your keyboard layout. If the @ sign is ontop of the number "2" then select US otherwise select UK. That should help.

You might have a hardware issue with your laptop keyboard. You have at least 2 options:

1) connect a "normal" USB keyboard to your laptop and use it, instead

2) run the On-Screen Keyboard (osk.exe) and access the characters/keys you want from there

Good Luck!

Dear fixya pls help me . on the keyboard of my just 8 months old dell inspiron m5030 laptop the shift button has gone ,,mad,, or it does not shift anything just make strange signs like+tYT or opens the...

#1 in windows, go to regional and language settings, and ensure that your settings match the keyboard installed (If a USA system, then all the keyboard settings should be for US English etc) there are different layouts for different keyboard (US and UK keyboards have a few differences, others are more major)
#2 assuming #1 didn't resolve, boot to the diagnostics and run the custom keyboard test and see if it passes outside of windows (Boot to the Dell resource CD is the easy way to get to diags)
If the keyboard fails the test, then replace the keyboard. If issue still persists after keyboard replacement, then motherboard is next (A 8mo old system should still be under Dell warranty)
If the keyboard passes diags, then the issue is windows and final resolve, may be reinstalling windows

Two Laptop Keys have swopped functions does in fact..seems that your computer is using an international keyboard setting. go to control panel, and look for keyboard icon, and check to see that you are on US keyboard settings..
