When i am typing @ cant instead @ the letter is " please help


The keyboard is set up wrongly or the laptop isn't one set up for your country.
If you get " when typing @ try typing SHIFT and 2 for the @ symbol.
You can change keyboard settings in Control Panel.

How do u use the @ symbol on the keyboard


The @ symbol and the number 2 key share the key.
To select the @ symbol - hold the SHIFT key and then press the number 2 key.
If you are not getting the @ symbol then most likely your keyboard was not or changes from the US keyboard.
If this is the case there would be other wrong symbols on your keyboard.

The keys are not synchronised properly. The @ key and the " are typing each others symbol. ie I have to press shift 2 to get the @ symbol and vice versa.


you are using a usa keyboard.
if you want to use the uk keyboard layout change the regional settings, go to languages and there is an option to change the keyboard.

It sounds like you have another keyboard layout set as your default.
In Control Panel, double click "Regional and Language Options". Click the Languages Tab and then the Details button. Make sure that English-US is selected as the Default Input Language.
If another keyboard layout is listed below and you don't need it there, you can remove it to make sure it doesn't switch itself again.
Note: this is for XP. Vista will be similar, but I don't have a vista machine so I can't tell you exactly what the options will be called.
I hope this helps. Good Luck.

Dell SK-8115 USB keyboard on non Dell PC


This model keyboard has an internal USB hub and Windows only sees the hub when booting. The solution is to get a generic USB keyboard and boot into Windows. Once Windows has loaded the HID drivers for the sk-8115 keyboard then this Dell keyboard will work from then on.
