My @ is not working in the right place it works on the no 2 key


You are using a keyboard layout (software) that does not match your keyboard (hardware).
For example, if your keyboard is made for typing German, but you have activated a layout for typing English, the @ is not on Ctrl-Alt-Q where you expect it to be, but on Shift-2.

Solution 1: activate a keyboard layout matching your keyboard.
Solution 2: get used to the non-matching layout :-) There is a built-in utility to show a virtual keyboard onscreen. That will make it easier to find out how to type the various special characters.

How can I type Japanese o keybord?


Hai ! This is possible : )

Type in Chinese, Japanese, and other character-based languages

To type text on your computer in character-based languages, such as Chinese and Japanese, follow these steps:


[Source: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Type-in-Chinese-Japanese-and-other-character-based-languages]

  1. Add the language as an input language. If you want to use an input method editor (IME), make sure you select it when you add the input language. For more information, see Add an input language.
    Add an input language

    You can edit documents in multiple languages by changing the language (the input language) in which you type. Input languages are included with Windows, but you need to add them to your list of languages before you can use them.

    1. Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.

    2. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab, and then click Change keyboards.

    3. Under Installed services, click Add.

    4. Double-click the language you want to add, double-click the text services you want to add, select the text services options you want to add, and then click OK.



  1. Change your input language to the language you installed. For more information, see Change your input language.


Change your input language

The input language is a setting in Windows that controls the language you use to type information on your computer. Before you can change an input language, you need to add that language to Windows. For more information, see Add an input language.
To change the input language

Click the Input language button on the Language bar, and then click the input language you want to use.

If you don't see the Language bar, right-click the taskbar, point to Toolbars, and then click Language bar.

  1. Change your keyboard layout to the desired layout. For more information, see Change your keyboard layout.


Change your keyboard layout

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. For more information, see Add an input language.
Hide all expcol_imgs.png To change the keyboard layout

  1. On the Language bar, click the Input language button, and then select an input language.

  2. Click the Keyboard layout button, and then select a keyboard layout.

If you don't see the Language bar, right-click the taskbar, point to Toolbars, and then click Language bar.
expcol_imgs.png To change the keyboard layout on the Welcome screen

On the Welcome screen, click the Keyboard layout button 0c181420-8a93-48b6-82b1-b2dc25fc01b5.png, and then select a keyboard layout.

TIP:
After you are done you can switch between Japanese and English very easily by manually pressing the on screen buttons or using keyboard commands like SHIFT+ALT to switch between Japanese (???) and the Alphabet.

I am using an IBM Thinkpad. When I press the J key, I get the number 1. I can't turn off the num lock.


I have worked on these before and you are going to need a new keyboard which are pretty simple to take off and replace.

Keyboard keys are messed up....any thing you type differnt letters pop.


You probably have the wrong country listed in your keyboard layout.  Each country has a different keyboard layout, as some languages need frequent access to accents and special characters.

I'm presuming you have Windows; and I don't know which version, so I can only give general instructions on how to fix it:

In Control Panel, there's a setting for 'regional settings' or 'region & language'...something like that.  Click on it.  In there somewhere is 'input settings' or 'keyboard settings'.  Change this to the country you got the keyboard from.

For example, I'm English & living in Spain.  So I loaded an English version of Windows, but I have to set it to 'Spanish keyboard' as I bought the laptop in Spain and the keys on the keyboard are in the Spanish configuration.

Hope that helps.

Some keys of my keyboard don't appear exactly


Well, I never herd of this before, I will try my best to solve it, Did you switch the keys around? Or a family member as a "prank" If not, You should be able to go to your computer setup then, Input devices, look for your keyboard and there should be modes.
