The @ sign on my keyboard won't work!!!

When trying to type the @ sign into an email address or word document, the only character that appears is the ' sign. I am having to copy and paste the @ sign from the internet as I am unable to type it. Any suggestions?

How can I write a pound sign by using a dell keyboard


The easiest way is to hold down the Alt key and type "156", then release the Alt key. You will see a British pound (£) sign appear. However, sometimes "pound" means the number sign (#), but that's mostly used in voicemail prompts.
If you use the first pound symbol a lot, you can either keep it on the clipboard, or consider remapping a key you never use (like the tilde, or ~) to type that character (see http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article02-022).

Hope this helps!

Shift-3 does prints # instead of Btisih pound


This is because it is set to US english keyboard layout rather than UK English layout.

Asus X58Cseries with Windows Vista Basic has $ sign on 4 key but no pound sign. Any way of getting it? If not, I can live with it but would like to know either way.Cheers, Linda.


I'm an Asus X58C user in the UK and my keyboard is the same. I've not found an easy solution. The only way I can insert a £ character is this. Place your coursor where you want the character. Turn Numbers Lock on using the blue Fn and NumLk keys. Hold down the Alt key and then using the blue numbers keys type 0163. Release the Alt key and the £ character will appear. Turn Numbers Lock off using the blue Fn and NumLk keys again. Its laborious but it works, its how I typed it here. I also found out that if you hold down Ctrl and Alt and then press the 4 key, you type the euro character €. Hope this helps
