Well, first you have to remove every screw on the bottom, remove any screws on the top, and any screws on the LCD. you must remove the LCD and the hinges. Then you can lift up the front, where the keyboard is, there is a couple of screws holding in the keyboard and mouse, and you could get a replacement and clean out any dust while your at it :) Please Rate My Solution

When I try to type the ampersand ( @ ) I get the quotation ( " ) sign instead

PROBLEM: Some keyboard characters type incorrectly and are swapped. Most notably the Ampersand - @ and the Quote sign - "

RESOLUTION: The wrong country selection for the keyboard layout has been selected. An ENGLISH - UK keyboard with an ENGLISH - USA keyboard type selected or the reverse.

Go to CONTROL PANEL, REGIONAL AND LANGUAGE settings and select the correct keyboard for your system's country of origin.

You will need to change the laptop keyboard, go to Type: make and model of laptop, and refine search to keyboard. But it would not hurt to attach a external keyboard to be sure.

The keyboard is set to usa language instead of uk.

Easy to sort.
On xp.

Go in to the control panel and its the "regional and language" bit u want. Chane the regional option to uk for both bits. Then click on the languages bit then the details button. In there change the default input language to uk and click apply.

On vista is the clock language and region bit u want in the non classic view control panel. Then just change to uk.

Hope that sorts it for you?
