Step one

unplug keyboard from machine

step two

try another keyboard

if none of that helps, then you'll need a bios refresh

My son switched uses of the ctrl and the Windows keys. How do I revert back to original uses. My son does not recall how he did it and I have googled trhis but to no avail

Probably he changed the registry using "regedit" (run it: Start, type regedit in the box, Enter)
Here is the keyboard layout location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout

For your information, there is an apps; it is called SharpKeys. It can change the key function very fast.

My @ key has moved to 2 how do i get it back to its normal Passion @

The standard keyboard language and widely used setting is "ENGLISH (US)"
Set the Keyboard layout to English US so that you have standard keys for symbols etc. like @ sign with SHIFT+2 etc.

The keyboard layout / Language of your PC may have been different (other than English US), so follow these steps to select the International keyboard layout:

- Go to Control Panel - Regional and Language settings
- On the Keyboards and Language tab, click Change keyboards.
- Click Add.
- Expand the language that you want. For example, English (United States).
- Expand Keyboard list, select the United States-International check box, and then click OK.
- In the Default input language list, click Language name - United States-International (where Language name is the language that you selected in step 4), and then click OK two times.
- In the Regional and Language Options dialog box, click OK.


The above steps would change the Keyboard Layout settings to 'English US' and you would be able to type @ sign with SHIFT+2

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

The euro symbol is under the 5, how do i type this?


The keyboard shortcut for the € symbol is Alt Gr + 5. However if this does not work, you may also enter the following key combination : Alt+0128.

You have to maintain the Alt key pressed while entering the 0128 code.

Hope this helps you.

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.

Can't seem to get the at symbol working

you may have the keyboard settings to a different 'language' an american layout keyboard is set to have the @ sign as "shift + 2" (whereas the U.K layout would give " for Shift + 2) and vice-versa!

to change the regional settings of your keyboard, (on Xp)
  • Control Panel
  • Regional And Language Options

Under Languages (Second Tab) Click on DETAILS, then this will bring up another window.

Select your default input language as either ENGLISH (U.K) OR ENGLISH (U.S)

Hope this solves the issue!!

sorry if it sounds confusing!

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:
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):

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.
