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.

I have an acer aspire 5610 laptop. Some of the keys on the keyboard do different things to what the symbol on them represents: the @ symbol looks like its near the 'enter' key, but i have to hold down...


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.

I have an acer aspire laptop and the symbol keys are all mixed up. For example: if you press ctrl @ " appears. If you press ctrl 2 the @ symbol appears etc


You need to go into your language or keyboard settings and select the US english layout.

Thanks and please remember to rate as fixya.

Hello. I have just bought an Acer Aspire 6920 Laptop. The problem is when i need the @ symbol I get the " symbol and visa versa. I have selected United Kingdom as my keyboard layout. What's going on?


Hello Bobster079,

Here is a couple of things to try:

1) Get into the Bios and set it to default setting (may be F9 button), then save setting. Then reboot and try.

if this does not work, then move in to next step.

2) Hold down and press the "fn" button and press the "Scroll Lock" button. This works like a toggle switch.

Hope this is helpfull and good luck.

I take it that when you try and access the @ key it gives you a " or # key...

This a common problem,
You need to set your keyboard layout to the right country that matches your keyboard. i.e US or British etc.

Go to the control panel, regional and language options, languages, details.

Add or modify the keyboard country
