Hello,
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.

thanks& regards

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.

This was very helpful, thank you very much
It's control and shift at the same time. (not control and enter) Try that it should work.
Hit Fn + Num Lock .
Just hit "ctrl" + "Enter" at the same time. You probably accidentally hit that combo to switch it into the alternate layout in the first place - doing it again will get it back to the regular layout.

Cheers.
its ctrl and shift !

when I press b nc comes up nc its annoying
HEY! I JUST HAD THE SAME PROBLEM BUT SOLVED IT.
I changed the language/keyboard setting to "English (United States)" however I now have to press the " twice and backspace. did that make sense? I hope it did :P
