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.

Thank you, WS 71

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 !

I tried all this solutions. My keyboard and language settings are on US english. Unicode is US english. I still have my shift + 'key' symbols mixed up in same way the poster has it. 'ctrl' + Enter did nothing.

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

Please carry out a scan to confirm whether the problem is not coming from any virus infection.
