To Guest who had the fault "keyboard stroke for 'shift 2' should be (at) symbol, but displays " ... how can I change?"

I had the same issue on my new ASUS. I changed the keyboard setting from UK to US and it fixed the issue.

If this is similar to my brothers problem (It sounds like it, screwed up buttons and all) then this is the solution he found

1. Open up the on screen keyboard and click on F11
2. Right click on the on screen keyboard in the taskbar and click restore
3. Close the on screen keyboard
4. If its the same problem hopefully it should work fine now

That seems odd. It could be a keyboard defect already. Manually cleaning it will fix it. Otherwise, you need external keyboard

To determine if you need to replace the keyboard, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop and if the USB keyboard functions properly then you need to replace the laptop keyboard.
If the USB keyboard malfunctions too then the motherboard is faulty.
It may not be cost effective to replace the motherboard.

When I type the letter "s" I get the save file window. When I type the letter "p" I get the print window.

This means that your "Ctrl"button at your keyboard is pressed down. Take a look for something that is keeping either of the 2 Ctrl buttons pressed. Otherwise it's a keyboard's problem. Shut down the notebook and check the buttons for proper mechanical movement of the keys.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
