Default Keyboard problem

Dear all,

I've got a small keyboard problem on my laptop.... when I type shift + 2 it gives me a " instead of the @ sign and for shift + 3 I get a £ instead of a # sign.
It's only for these two...the other number keys with shift give me the corresponding characters.

In Keyboard settings in Control Panel, I have Input Language English United Kingdom and in Regional Settings I have location as English United Kingdom. Not sure about advanced settings..never use them.

Can someone tell me how I can resolve this problem?

Thanks and regards.

Try using the American type set and see if anything changes.

I've tried that but it doesn't seem to solve the problem...
Any other ideas or settings I can check or change to solve this issue?

try to bring your laptop to a specialist... maybe some of the rubbers of your keyboard got stuck or is hitting other parts of the keyboard
