This is because you have to press 2 (the key is to the right of the space bar)

Cant find @ symbol tried shift and alt and number 2.bought in canada im now in uk

Being Canadian I can assure you that the @ symbol is produced by holding down the shift key and pressing the number 2. This keyboard may have a different setup, or you may need to change your language settings on your computer from Start>Control Panel.
Alternatively, you can open a virtual keyboard from Start>Programs>accessories>accessibilty>virtual keyboard

Which langauge i should select in acer 5742 from keyboard setting

Hi Shehzad,
The standard keyboard language and widely used setting is "ENGLISH (US)"
Set the Keyboard layout to English US so that you have standard keys for symbols etc. like @ sign with SHIFT+2 etc.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I just got a new desktop computer and i am having difficulties using the keyboard, i want to use the @ sign but when i press shift 2 i get " instead the @ sign is there to how do i use it ???

This sounds like you have the USA keyboard language installed, IF you are in the UK, then installing the UK language for the keyboard will sort this out.

The @ sign appears when i press apostrophy?

If you mean "open quotes" (shift and figure 2) then you're probably set up as a US keyboard (the default Windows setting) rather than UK keyboard. This is because the keyboard layouts are different. If this is not the case, your keyboard may be faulty.

These are instructions for Windows XP. I'd recommend running System Restore first, to create a restore point in case you mess up.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Settings to see a table headed Regional and Language Options. Under the Regional Options tab, check you have selected English (UK) and not English (US). Use the drop down box to change if required.

Next, click the Languages tab, click Details and check that English (UK)-UK is the default. Click Apply and OK on each window to exit, then restart the computer.

The Language Bar may appear as an EN next to the systray. If you click on it, you can hide it if you want to.

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.
