I have a new laptop but I can’t get “@” to work. What could be causing that?

    make sure 'us' keyboard is installed. check if '2' button works. if yes, then it is that you have to install us keyboard, if not, there is a problem with the 2 key i.e. a hardware problem. if it is real emergency use onscreen keyboard.

    Try playing around with your keyboard settings in the control panel. Try US first, it should work

    Press shift and 2 , if you get the @ sign then you have US keyboard setup

    The location and keys used to access the @ symbol depends on the keyboard of your machine and the keyboard layout configured.
    - In a US keyboard, is located above the 2 key, so you access it with Shift-2
    - In an spanish keyboard, it is access using Alt-Gr + 2
    - In an latin american keyboard the key combination is AltGr+Q
    You need to be sure that the configuration in windows match the physical layout of your keyboard.

    Check if you have installed an US keyboard or not!
    Go to: Start > Control Panel > Change Keyboards or other input methods > Keyboard and languages > change keyboard...
    and see if there is an US keyboard or not!
