i got a new HP laptop. the problem is that when I press shift+2 i.e. the @ symbol...i get the " symbol. similarly when I press the shift +3 I get the £ symbol instead of the # symbol which comes only if I press something else.
please help me ASAP.

In the Region & Language settings, Keyboards and Languages tab change to US. In Administrative tab, change the Language for non-Unicode programs to US. This worked for me.
Hats off to you, WS. I and my Computer Engineer were scratching heads over this issue for a long, long time, assuming that the system might be infected with a Trojan, or the drivers might be corrupt. Sometimes the solution is so easy that we tend to ignore it. We were a tad ashamed to realise the problem was so minute. Thank you once again. Blessings.
