Hi Dave,
This is strange, what comes out when you press Shift plus the @ sign?
check your numlock if its being enabled on your laptop.

Where is the Number key lock on my new hp laptop?? I can't get my router to work


usually if the computer do not have a num lock neat the numbers in the left corner ..I mean if you only have numbers on top of the letters this means that the numbers are always on ...and if you need to change to the upper symbols use the shift key above the ctrl and Fn key ...If you do not have the numbers always on under the letters it means that you used the fn key and changed the functions of the keys or some kinda odd virus did that and in this case a reinstall will fix it ..but I dont this this is the case...
If you have Numbers in the right side like a full size keyboard..than the num LK will be on top of them if you only have numbers on top of the letters than the numbers are always on and the shift will change to the symbols

You have your keyboard set as US. If you go into control panel, open Regional and Language options and change all of the settings with a country to UK. That will solve your problem.

I disconnected my son's lap top and we can not connect to the internet on his lap top It's saying on the lap top can not display this page Laura


Try connecting to http://209.235.250.53/

If it works, the laptop is using a bad DNS address. How you fix that depends on the operating system - XP or Vista.
