There's a program that can change the layout, it's called key transformation. It's shareware though.

Yes, go to the Control Panel and then to "Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options", from there choose "Regional and Language Options" click on the Languages tab, click on the Details button and finally on the Add button within the window, choose English (United States) as Input Language (or the language you are comfortable with), check the button on Keyboard layout/IME: and click on US.
Finally click OK on that window, then on the Text Services window (the one you are now), choose English (United States) (or the language you chose), and US as layout. click OK and restart Windows.

Shift key and symbols dont match

You can change the keyboard layout to match the one you have.

In your start box, select run and type "intl.cpl" (without quotes).

Under the formats tab, change the format. try the ones with English (" ") and then click apply.
To see the format selected,open the On-screen keyboard ( type "osk.exe" in run) and hold shift to view the symbols.
Try different formats until you find something that matches the phisical keyboard layout.

When i press the shift key and im trying to get the @ i get the " instead.

You have the language set wrong on your keyboard.
Try pressing ALT-SHIFT and then see if SHIFT 2 gives you an @
Otherwise, yu may need to install the English US keyboard layout because right now it looks like you are on English Canadian (possibly french) layout.

Cant print the symbol @ on my note book

Press SHIFT-2
if that isn't working , press and hold the ALT key, and type 64 on the numeric keypad then release the alt key.
If method 2 works, and method one doesn't, check your keyboard layout, and switch it back to US when you get the chance.
Also, see if the number 2 in the top row works at all...if not, the keyboard might be defective.

Apostropy and quotation mark keys change

The only time that I have this problem is when I've accidentally hit SHIFT and CTRL at the same time. Do it again and you should go back to your old way of typing characters.
