How is it not working?

When you press the key nothing happens?

Do you have a wireless keyboard?

I guess I am a little confused at what issue you are having.

Thanks :whistling:

if you're typing something and you press Shift + the number 2 what comes up?

if you press shift + the number 3 what comes up?


but this sign should be over on the right hand side of the keyboard any suggestions would be great Thanks again

if you press shift + the number 3 what comes up? # the hash and the at should be over on the right next to the enter key just to the left of the enter key does that help. Thanks again

AHA....you've got a different natural keyboard layout...with the american english keyboard layout the @ and the # are 2 and 3 respectively the " and ; on our keyboards are directly to the left of the enter key

do start then settings then control panel then regional settings, click on the languages tab, in the "text services and language settings" area click details....what's listed?
