If i understand you correctly, you want the @ symbol linked to a different keyboard command than shift-2?

you could try the tradekeys program, link is:

My numbers keypad is not working


Step 1:
Laptop or Desktop ?
ENABLE NUMLOCK KEYS USING REGITRY Check the LED light that indicates whether or not the Number Lock is enabled. If the light is on, press the "Num Lock" key on your keyboard. Look for the light to turn off, signaling that the Number Lock has been disabled. Change your Number Lock status at start up (Number Lock is disabled on start-up by default). Click "Start," then "Run" and type "regedit" to pull up the Windows Registry. Open the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\" folder, then subsequently open the "Control Panel\" and "Keyboard\" folders. Double-click on "InitialKeyboardIndicators" and change its Data Value to "1," to disable Number Lock on start-up. A value of "2" would turn the Number Lock on after you log in, while a "0" value would result in it turning off after you log in.

CHANGE THE DEFAULT NUMLOCK KEY b> Go to the Start menu. From the Start menu choose "Run." Type in "regedit." Hit "OK" to open the regedit application. This allows you to change your computer's default settings. Navigate to the keyboard's default settings. Using the navigation bar at the left, choose "HKey_Users" then "Default" then "Control Panel" and finally "Keyboard." Look at the right side of the window. On the right are the various default options you can change for your keyboard. Double click on "InitialKeyboardIndicators" to change the NumLock default. A window will pop up. Change the NumLock default by entering a 0 or 2 in the "Value Data" field. Enter a 0 to have the NumLock set to off by default. To set the NumLock to on by default, enter 2. Hit the "OK" button to save your changes. Restart you computer. Your NumLock default changes will not take effect until your computer has been restarted.

Keyboard Keys (fn + F keys) stopped working. Can you help?


Try booting in Safe Mode and see if it works.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.
If the keys work in Safe Mode then you might have a virus or infection that has hijacked the keyboard. Turn the laptop off and repeat the steps to get into safe mode, but this time select Safe Mode With Networking (this will give you internet connectivity). Download and Install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

My keyboard is not working especially a ,f ,j ,l ,g. how do I fix this? help


Every day your computer is exposed to dirt, hair, dead skin and other kinds of grime. This can drastically affect your keyboard's performance. Removing your keys is a simple and effective way to clean the inside of your keyboard and improve keyboard response. This is a simple operation and should only take a few hours if done correctly. This is important to anyone who wants to know how to properly remove their laptop's keyboard keys.
1. Print out or draw a keyboard map of the location of your keyboard's keys. Turn off your computer.

2. Position the laptop so that it is under a lamp or so there is sufficient light shining onto the keyboard. You want to be able to see all the dirt that is under your keyboard.

3. Take the end of a flat-head screw driver and carefully pry any of the letter or number keys off, preferably starting with the "Q" and working your way to the right. The letter and number keys are easier to remove than the command keys.

4. Collect the removed keys into a container so you do not lose them. Take special care when removing the tab, caps lock, shift, space bar, enter, forward slash and back space buttons. These buttons are attached to a small metal pin. It may take a little more effort to remove these, so be patient.

5. Feel free to clean the inside of your keyboard once all the keys are removed. Take a cotton swab dipped in a small amount of alcohol and wipe the areas around the keys to remove the grime and dirt. Use tweezers to remove any bigger bits and pieces of dirt or hair.

6. Refer back to your keyboard map and put your keys back into their right location. Position each key in the center of the plastic connector and press around the edges till it clicks. Feel around a little till it is tight and secure.

I hope you find it very helpful.

Hi my keyboard has a problem my @ sign only works the number 2 key and the icon on the number 2 key only works on the @ key


In Windows, open the Control Panel, select Regional Language Options (in Vista this under Clock, Language, & Region). Select the Languages tab. In XP, click on details and set your keyboard to English (UK) (in vista, click on Change Keyboards). This should get the correct output for your keyboard.

How do u use the @ symbol on the keyboard


The @ symbol and the number 2 key share the key.
To select the @ symbol - hold the SHIFT key and then press the number 2 key.
If you are not getting the @ symbol then most likely your keyboard was not or changes from the US keyboard.
If this is the case there would be other wrong symbols on your keyboard.

Weird French character key


This is a problem I haven’t stumbled on before and it bugged me so I have a suggestion.
 
-         Open the Control Panel (generally on the Start menu)
-         Open the Regional and Language folder
-         Click on Languages tab
-         Click on Details
 
See if the keyboard layout is set to ‘US.’
 
Now, what I don’t seem to find is how to choose something different without actually changing ‘Language’ itself.  
 
Win ‘Help’ gave this result when searching on “changing keyboard language:”
 
“You can switch to a different keyboard layout or enter text in other languages without changing keyboards. However, the key labels may no longer match the characters you are entering. Use Regional and Language Options in Control Panel for changing languages and keyboard layouts.”
If this does or doesn't work, please post back as it might help others either do what you want to do or avoid paying any attention to me <grin>

Not all keys on keyboard work properly


Not likely, if the regular alphabet and numbers don't work then there is something sticky spilled under the keys.
you can remove the back and the membrane and wipe it clean. takes a bit of work.
