This is probably a different keyboard layout that you used to know.

  1. Click Start , type intl.cpl in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
  2. On the Keyboards and Language tab, click Change keyboards.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Expand the language that you want. For example, English (United States).
  5. Expand Keyboard list, select the United States-International check box, and then click OK.
  6. In the Default input language list, click Language name - United States-International (where Language name is the language that you selected in step 4), and then click OK two times.
  7. In the Regional and Language Options dialog box, click OK.

    Notice that the Language bar appears on the taskbar. When you position the mouse pointer over it, a ToolTip appears that describes the active keyboard layout
  8. Click the Language bar, and then click United States-International on the shortcut menu that appears.

    The United States-International keyboard layout is selected.

What happens if you type the double quote mark?

If you get the commercial at symbol "@" then the language in the operating system is set probably to UK and the keyboard itself is a US one. Or vice versa.

Simply change the input language to match the keyboard (this is dependent upon your operating system, but can be found in the control panel if you're running windows.

Be sure that your keyboard is configured properly. You should be able to check under the "Region and Language" area of control panel if you are in windows and select "Keyboards and Languages." Check that it is set as a US keyboard or that it's set to which keyboard type you are using.
