Hi, Typical keyboard problems such as this can be attributed to dust and other foreign material that get lodged in between the contact switch of each key. Since the repair cost sometimes exceed the cost of a new keyboard, it may be to your advantage to simply purchase a replacement (that is of course if the errors outweighs the use). A trick you can try is lengthen the time between repetitive keystrokes (but this will apply to all the keys not only ' and ~). This is done in your BIOS (assuming this feature is available with your motherboard). On powerup, press del or the key designed to enter the BIOS setup. See if you have the option to control your "Typematic Rate Setting" and select enable, in the "Typematic Delay:, select 500 or higher. Save and reboot. Hope this works for you. Good luck and kind regards.

What is a alpha character


An upper or lower case letter is considered an alpha character. A numeric character is a number. Special characters are what you see when you press the shift button and a number. There are other special characters such as ;:'"/?.>,<[{]} that are also available on standard keyboards.

The at symbol on my dell inspiron laptop won't work


The @ symbol should be SHIFT + 2 if you are getting a different character, then you may have a incorrect regional setting. Go to Control Panel, and ensure that the Regional & Language settings are correct for your location and check the settings on each of the three tabs.
If all is correct there, then run the system diags Fn + Power button and see if the keys match what tehy show in the diags.

Gateway keyboard shift key creating special characters when used


This is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://www.sportmachines.com/keyboard/

Here are the instructions without the pictures:

I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous.
After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).

When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.

Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.)
To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.

Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.

Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.

Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.

Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.

Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.
