I have a new Acer Aspire one D260 netbook. My first time using it and I cant figure out how to type in the @ sign. It is the #2 button, but everytime I hit shift @, it defaults to the green colored " instead of @. If I dont use the shift button it comes up as 2...what is the solution?

Hi. I guess there is something wrong with your keyboard. Here is another way on how to get the @ sign. Press and hold the ALT key then press 6 then 4 the release the ALT key. This is interim solution only if you want to get the ALT key sign. I suggest to have your computer fixed by ACER for this is still under warranty.

First check to make sure the keyboard is set to the correct language as followed.
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Regional Settings
Switch to use the "US English" setting

    The keyboard must be set to english as well, The system can be english and the keyboard set to something else, This would not type in another language, Just the keyboard setting would be wrong, I have read what you wrote and I'm trying to help. (This is not the system language Just the keyboard language)

  • brad_melissa Aug 24, 2010

    Ok, your original instructions got me nowhere, I cant follow the instructions and get to the settings for computer

    Click Start
    Click Control Panel ( click classic view on the left)
    Click Regional and language options
    Select keyboard and languages from the top tabs

    Click "Change keyboard"

    Adjust keyboard settings when settings box opens

    If the setting are all correct the problem would be that you have a keyboard driver and a windows driver trying to control the keyboard at the same time,If you go tho the device manager and uninstall the keyboard driver,Windows will correct the issue and it will start working as it should.

Hey my acer aspire one netbook has virius and on some profiles after i connect the internet the internet window doesnt pop up and i have to make new profiles everytime i wanna use my internet. how do i...


To reset to factory conditions you should use the recovery cd that came with the computer. Before you do this you should back up everything you want to save. If you don't have a recovery disk you can buy one on ebay and save yourself some money.
If you would like to try and remove the virus yourself, I reccomend:
Malwarebytes Antimalware malwarebytes.org
Spybot Search and Destroy http://www.safer-networking.org
Good Luck

Hi,

If you want to access the device manager you can click on Start select Run a small dialog box will appear on the left part of the screen. Type Devmgmt.msc and it will go directly to Device Manager.

You can also Right Click on My Computer select Properties. Go to Hardware Tab and then click on the Device Manager Button.
