I'm assuming it's a standard british keyboard

Click Start
Control Panel
Regional and Language Options

If UK or UK Extended isn't selected click Add
Select your language and keyboard layout from the list
Click OK
Your keyboard should now show up in the box
Click the non-UK Keyboard setting
Click Remove
Click Apply then OK

Settings may not change until you restart.

If your keyboard isn't the standard UK layout, check your manual or the Sony website to find out which it is.

I have a Sony VGN NR430D/S and after a year's use, the laptop will not boot or start when the power button is pressed. It started when after I used it, I clicked on the SLEEP button instead of switch off...

remove the battery and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. put the battery back in and try to start it. if it still won't boot up, it may be a hardware issue.

Get an old monitor CRT or LCD. Connect this to the back of your laptop to the appropriate connection. Turn on this monitor and your laptop. Now on your laptops keyboard are some blue highlighted keys called function keys. Press and hold the one marked "Fn" and then press the F7 key (on my Sony - yours may be different but the key with a small blue rectangle with LCD inside a foward slash to what looks like an oval with square sides) this is the external monitor key. If the external monitor comes on with the laptops screen information then your mercury lamp in the laptops screen has died. Then a reputable repairman can replace your screen and lamp for $200. - $300. If nothing appears on the screen then most likely the video chip in your laptop has died. Replacing this will require a new motherboard for the laptop. You should contact Sony about price and any extended warranties they may have,
