    Hi, you are on USA settings, to change go to 'Control panel' and then change the region to UK Keyboard, move it up the listing also with 'Move Up'.Thanks Mark

The "@" symbol will be a certain color on the keyboard, the color represents what key you have to press in conjunction with te "q" key to use that character.

Here is an example of what I am talking about. You will notice in the picture there is a "FN" key at bottom left of the keyboard and it is blue. So that means that if you want to use any key on the keyboard that has blue writing, you first have to press the FN key.

Try pressing/holding the "FN" key aka "Function" and pressing the "q" key. If it is color coded to a different key, use that key before using the "q".

Well this seems to be obviously a keyboard problem, that sort of things happens when the keyboard is extremely dirty or water or other liquids get to the keyboard circuits, there's no practical way to make it work as good as new since it's a laptop keyboard and it's all sealed, there are two options get the laptop to technical service or buy a compatible keyboard and follow this tutorial or this one.
If you have any other problem don't hesitate to ask.

My netbook wich has no cd drive has viruses and it says i have a w32 blaster worm.its getting to where it wont sign on places i go and it didnt sign online when i tried.i dont know what to do.


HI There.

1. Power off the laptop
2. Power on and immediately after pressing the power button hit the F8 key repeatedly.
3. You will arrive at a black screen with choices in white letters.
4. Using the arrow keys, select Safe Mode with Networking and hit enter.
5. When you get to the desktop, go to this link and download Malwarebytes
http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html
6. Run the program using Quick Scan which will already be selected when you open it.
7. Once the viruses have been located, remove or quarantine them as Malwarebytes chooses
8. Restart your netbook and you should be good to go.

Regards,

Selk

Keyboard buttons coming out with diffrent symbols to what i want


Hi,
You have your Num Lock on, look for the Num Lock key (should be located in the top right of the keyboard) press that key and your keyboard will return to normal.
Sometimes you have to hold down Fn or shift when you press the Num Lock key.



Good luck.
