STEP 1. How to do when unable To Type @, ~, #, Or Other Keys On My Netbook 1
If you are unable to type @, ~, #, or other keys when pressing the corresponding keys on the keyboard, your keyboard may be set to an improper keyboard language. An example of this is when you press Shift + 2 to type a @, a “ appears instead.

To set your keyboard to the US keyboard language, follow these steps (Windows XP).
1. Click Start and then click “Control Panel”.
2. Click “Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options”.
3. Click “Regional and Language Options”.
4. Click the “Languages” tab and then click Details.
