Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet
If this is Windows you possibly have the wrong language set for your keyboard or the font doesn't have one. If you don't want to mess with your settings there 2 ways (possibly more) one is with the cursor where you want the ~ put keypad into numeric, press and hold the alt key type 0126 on the keypad let go the alt key
run charmap which is part of Windows highlight the ~ (about 4 lines down in Arial) press select then press copy and past it as required.
I hope this helps

If it is not working only in specific games, then the issue is most likely with the game itself, or some settings therein. Your keyboard does not require a driver for the key to work. The generic drivers that come built-in with Vista should make any keyboard to work. A keyboard driver is only needed to program the hot keys and play/volume etc. functions.
Try the tilde key in Notepad or MS Word. If it works there, then the issue is with the game. You will have to refer to the game manual to find out how to program the key.
If, however, the key does not work in Notepad / Word either, then your keyboard is most likely defective. Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

Can you please try pressing and holding Shift and then pressing the single quote key ( ' ). Do let us know if that gets the @ sign

SOURCE: hash key
I tried the lower left Fn key plus the key just beneath the Backspace key on the right of the keyboard this created the # key you need (this on a Satellite Toshiba laptop)
