I just got a new Dell StudioXPS 8000 with Windows 7 Home edition.
A Keyboard question -
I cannot type the @ symbol using shift + 7, I get this " symbol ( I copied and pasted the @ symbol foir this post )
Any help would be appreciated.
Welcome to the forums
Have you checked the 'Location' and 'Keyboard & language settings' in Control Panel --> Region and Language, to make sure they're set correctly?
From experience, I've found that: “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!
Smoke Grey Magnesium Alloy Chassis - with White LED Backlights
17" UltraSharp WUXGA Widescreen TFT (1920 x 1200) with TrueLife

Now it works fine. I had the settings on Canadian English as I live in Toronto. Now that I set all my Keyboard settings to US, the @ symbol works with shift + 2.
Thanks for your help.
