On my laptop there are vinyls of the letter, like any other keyboard, and some symbols like the @ symbol give me a completely different symbol than the one I wanted (:whistling:

However when i press the " button it gives me the @ symbol. I know it has something to do with the nationality of the keyboard but i don't know wher to edit it.

Thanks for any help!

Try going to Start, Control Panel, Regional and Language Options. Ensure the first and third tabs list the proper language/country. My setting on the Advanced tab, Code Conversion section is 10000 MAC Roman.

How long has this problem been heppening? Have you spilled anything in the keyboard?

Do you have a spare keyboard to plug in and test? This will tell us if it's a setting in Windows or a physical issue with the keyboard.
