Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language Settings.

In that Menu, you should be able to change the keyboard configuration to the proper one.

OK! Lets troubleshoot this together.

First thing we want to do is verify that your keyboard & mouse and plugged into the correct places and are powered up and able to work.

Turn your computer on and look at your keyboard and tell me if any lights are on to show that it has power and is operational.

Watch the keyboard lights until the computer gets to the login page and tell me if the lights come on and stay on? Or do the lights turn on for a moment and then turn off again?

If you do not see any lights, please clarify if there are NO LIGHTS on your style of keyboard or if there are lights but they are not lighting up.

If your keyboard has lights and they are not lighting up at all, then turn off the computer and unplug the mouse and keyboard and swap them around. Then turn the computer on again and tell me if the lights come on and the mouse and keyboard become operational.

Once we verify this we can continue to the next step of troubleshooting. Please report what you find and I will help you solve this.

Error when installing programs


First and easiest is to just reboot. If not, then click on Start->Run and type "regedit" without the quotes. Be very careful in here. You're going to be looking for the following key:
HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Installer\InProgress
So, click on the little plus sign to next to HKEY_Local_Machine, then on the plus sign next to Software.. and so on for all the keys there until you reach the InProgress key. If it's there, select it with your mouse and click the Delete button on your keyboard. Be sure not to make any other changes. Reboot, and see if the problem is fixed.
If you are not comfortable in the registry, uninstall office and reinstall it. I know that is nasty, but it will work.
Please leave rating. thank you

Acer extensa 5620 laptop cant get the @ button to come up


Sounds like your computer thinks got a foreign keyboard. (e.g. a US keyboard in the UK or vice versa).
On the UK keyboard "@" is two keys to the right of "L" (use shift) on the US keyboard it is on the "2" key.
Try that, if it works then it is just the settings. (Control panel -> locale I think, but you don't say which OS you're using).
