@ button not working

A friend of mine has a IBM 1400 i series laptop with win 98 and is attemping to set up the Intenet on it, when she puts her user name and password in she can't use the @ button, when she holds down shift and that @ button, the ' only appers, the keyboard is clean and all other buttons work, but she needs to put that @ in the complete her account set up, any ideas?

You need to change your regional settings. You are using the wrong key map. For the time being if you hold shift and press the number 2 key you will get the @ to appear on the address line.

Start, Settings, Control Panel, Regional Settings, set to English (United Kingdom), Apply, OK, Restart?, OK.

If that doesn't correct it, your friend will need a Win 98 CD for the next step. Otherwise she will have to bear in mind that the @ key and " key are swapped.

OK thanks for the info guys, my friend doesn't have a 98 cd, just cd restore discs, so let's hope the regional settings in control panel work, cheers, Rhuddlan.
