In the United States # is the pound sign (shift-3), in the UK the term "pound sign" is understood to mean the currency symbol, £, for pound sterling

How can I write a pound sign by using a dell keyboard


The easiest way is to hold down the Alt key and type "156", then release the Alt key. You will see a British pound (£) sign appear. However, sometimes "pound" means the number sign (#), but that's mostly used in voicemail prompts.
If you use the first pound symbol a lot, you can either keep it on the clipboard, or consider remapping a key you never use (like the tilde, or ~) to type that character (see http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article02-022).

Hope this helps!

My Latitude D600 Keyboard Is Mixed Up!!!


Hi,
If the Keyboard was mixedup in msn only then there is no issue might be the Fn combination with the num lock or any other caused that.
If keyboard charectors are printed wrong in DOS also then there is the issue with K/b so check it in DOS.
You can check your keyboard by typing osk in run command and on screen k/b will be opened check if that is working fine then issue with the hardware and if this is also behaving like same then software issue.

How do i get a pound sign on a dell computer


Press and hold the Alt+key and while doing that type 0163 using the numpad.
This means on your notebook keyboard, you have to hold the Alt and Fn-key and than press the keys which contain the blue numbers.
So in your case press: m j o l in this order...

Thx_nb
