    it's Linux, I read on internet that it's so called Xandros

    THANKS!

    it also involved some tweaking of synaptic,

    changing the repositories adressees,

    downloading the distributions from

    http://download.tuxfamily.org/eeepcrepos

    and enabling the "advanced desktop" option.

    huh, glad it's over! :-)

I suggest this, of course if you'd like: you change the keyboard layout to English (if you want to use English), can be UK or US.
Then you change what is written in the keyboard buttons with the correct one ("English" letters).
I know much in Windows, in Linux frankly speaking I don't know much (Linux has too many types). I got from this site:
http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:change_keyboard_layout_in_advanced_mode
how to change the keyboard layout:
In Advanced Mode the default keyboard layout is set to the US. These instructions inform KDE to use a different layout; for example the UK.

  • Launch / Control Centre / Control Centre, and select Peripheral Devices / Keyboard Layout
  • Under Available layouts select your country then click Add ».
  • Change layout variant to eeepc.
  • Click Apply.
  • Under Active layouts select U.S. English then click Remove.
  • Click Apply.
You can find the international keyboard layout here (example for English US):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout#US

If your computer already set for English keyboard layout, if you push your button, it should follow that international keyboard layout. (can be with some small modification). You can just try out for each button.

Can you change the language of a notebook


Yes. Just go into your control panel and find "clock, language and region" area.
You can customize your keyboard for a specific language or format by changing the keyboard layout. The layout controls which characters appear on the screen when you press the keys on your keyboard. Some input languages have several keyboard layouts; others have only one. For example, you can change your keyboard layout from the English QWERTY format to the English Dvorak format. After you change the layout, the characters on your screen might not correspond to the characters on your keyboard keys.
Before you can change the keyboard layout, you must add the input language and keyboard layout that you want to use to Windows.

In Windows XP at least, go to Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, and make sure you're set for the right country. In my case this is English (Australia).

Keyboard


one of 3 things seems likely: 1) you have a key on your motherboard that is stuck. tap the heck out of your Fn key, as well as all your Ctrl, Alt, and Shift keys. 2) your computer (operating system) has switched keyboard modes from standard western world american english setting to some other style. See if you can use your mouse to checkout keyboard settings in the control panel. 3) your keyboard is toast. hit dell/ebay for a replacement keyboard (the cheapest part of a laptop).
