its normal, its not all keyboard that has there "@" on number 2. Even the latest HP laptops that are produced these days have their @ on the same position like yours. You will find @ at the right side of the key board, near later "L".

Its normal, there is nothing to worry about because its not a fault. Just try to get use with the new changes.

Take care.

Be sure that your keyboard is configured properly. You should be able to check under the "Region and Language" area of control panel if you are in windows and select "Keyboards and Languages." Check that it is set as a US keyboard or that it's set to which keyboard type you are using.

Some of the keys on my Toshiba laptop don't actually type what is represented on the key e.g. the @ and " characters are transposed and I can't find the back slash character anywhere - and I need it...

Hello, it's probably a UK keyboard set for US operation...or vice versa! Assuming you're using XP (you don't specify what you're running):
Open up Control Panel, select 'Regional and Language Options', then select 'Languages' tab.Click 'Details'. A window opens up and it will indicate which country/keyboard you're currently running. If you're UK and it's set to US, change it,. You may also have to select a different language/keyboard in the drop-down menu box, and you probably will have to perform a reboot to enable the new setting.
If you're not running XP you may have to google for a solution, but it will be similar to the above.
p.s. don't forget to vote :-)
