  1. Hey,

    This question may be totally newbie sounding but I just purchased an Asus laptop. The problem I'm having is that instead of typing out a closing speech mark, like " when typing shift & ' I instead get a @. Like wise, if I type shift & 2 I get "

    Have I done something to switch the keys accidentally or is this a fault in the laptop?

    I think this is the model information:-

    MB ver: M51V
    ID: 1A

    Not sure if that helps. But could someone possibly help me with this? I'm getting rather annoyed at all the problems which seem to be occuring on it.

    Thanks in advance.

    You may have it switched to European characters - try changing regions in Control Panel and if necessary use (left) Alt+Shift.

    Also note: I have seen incorrect Bios flash cause this issue too.

    Kimsland - Sorry about that. I was just playing around with the text and didn't preview before posting.

    CCT - Thanks for that! I had the keyboard set under UK mode and apparently my computer can't take it. So I've got the problem sorted.

    Thanks again :)
