the settings to change the keyboard layout should be there when you install windows.

else, it is in
Start>settings>control panel>keyboard
and then click on the language tab
then click on properties and you can change the keyboard layout, if its not in the list, I don't know how to help you
it should be there

So you don't have these symbols?:

!
Shift + 2 = @
Shift + 3 = #
Shift + 4 = $
Shift + 5 = %
Shift + 6 = ^
Shift + 7 = &
Shift + 8 = *
Shift + 9 = (
Shift + 0 = )[/quote:8da478fa2 said:

Yes we do, just the quotation marks and the @ sign are switched. And the hash sign is differant too.

Shift + 1 = !
Shift + 2 = "
Shift + 3 =
Shift + 4 = $
Control + Alt + 4 = €
Shift + 5 = %
Shift + 6 = ^
Shift + 7 = &
Shift + 8 = *
Shift + 9 = (
Shift + 0 = )

I told you, the quotation mark button and the @ button have been switched. So on your keyboard, where the quotation marks are, my @ sign is.
