If you have chosen Australia as the country and English as the language then it should default to Australian English on the keyboard layout.

Look under English for keyboard and you will see an option for australia

Did it come with software? Try going into control panel and selecting keyboard/mouse and look for a default keyboard layout and select it. then restart your computer and see if that works.good luck!

Can you change the language of a notebook


Yes. Just go into your control panel and find "clock, language and region" area.
You can customize your keyboard for a specific language or format by changing the keyboard layout. The layout controls which characters appear on the screen when you press the keys on your keyboard. Some input languages have several keyboard layouts; others have only one. For example, you can change your keyboard layout from the English QWERTY format to the English Dvorak format. After you change the layout, the characters on your screen might not correspond to the characters on your keyboard keys.
Before you can change the keyboard layout, you must add the input language and keyboard layout that you want to use to Windows.

Keyboard keys are messed up....any thing you type differnt letters pop.


You probably have the wrong country listed in your keyboard layout.  Each country has a different keyboard layout, as some languages need frequent access to accents and special characters.

I'm presuming you have Windows; and I don't know which version, so I can only give general instructions on how to fix it:

In Control Panel, there's a setting for 'regional settings' or 'region & language'...something like that.  Click on it.  In there somewhere is 'input settings' or 'keyboard settings'.  Change this to the country you got the keyboard from.

For example, I'm English & living in Spain.  So I loaded an English version of Windows, but I have to set it to 'Spanish keyboard' as I bought the laptop in Spain and the keys on the keyboard are in the Spanish configuration.

Hope that helps.

It has american keyboard configuration when i need english


You can change the software keyboard layout from the Control Panel, "International Settings", then "Languages", "Details" and add a keyboard layout.

I believe US English to be already available in the system; otherwise, the OS will ask you insert the installation CD-ROM, so have it handy.

Afterwards, you'll have BOTH keyboard layouts available (a switch near the tray area will appear) unless you uninstall the US Keyboard layout.

ACER TY


your keyboard layout is wrong. what country are you? the default layout is US. some use UK layouts.

Depending on where the laptop was made, your keyboard layout will be different. I recommend try changing it to US,
go to start->control panel->switch to classic view(if it isn't already, else skip this step)->regional and language options->languages->details->(change your keyboard to US layout. If you can't see the option, go to "add..." and add a input language (english?) and keyboard layout)

Good Luck! if you are still struggling, just shout! I'll be here

Hi, my father-in-law has Acer One laptop and the "@" symobal only works when i press shift+2, which should be the quote mark. I have looked in the settings and can not find out how to change it - please...


HI You need to change the Keyboard Layout and Regional Settings of your PC from English US to English UK.

You need to go in Control Panel to do that.

If your Windows doesn't have a language pack installed you will have to reinstall windows and choose English UK when it ask you to set your Location and Time Zone.

Wrong keyboard


I suggest this, of course if you'd like: you change the keyboard layout to English (if you want to use English), can be UK or US.
Then you change what is written in the keyboard buttons with the correct one ("English" letters).
I know much in Windows, in Linux frankly speaking I don't know much (Linux has too many types). I got from this site:
http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:change_keyboard_layout_in_advanced_mode
how to change the keyboard layout:
In Advanced Mode the default keyboard layout is set to the US. These instructions inform KDE to use a different layout; for example the UK.
  • Launch / Control Centre / Control Centre, and select Peripheral Devices / Keyboard Layout
  • Under Available layouts select your country then click Add ».
  • Change layout variant to eeepc.
  • Click Apply.
  • Under Active layouts select U.S. English then click Remove.
  • Click Apply.
You can find the international keyboard layout here (example for English US):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout#US

If your computer already set for English keyboard layout, if you push your button, it should follow that international keyboard layout. (can be with some small modification). You can just try out for each button.
