NO pound sign and @ sign is accessed by ''

I can't change my keyboard to get a pound sign and the @ sign is in the wrong place.  My IT manager at work rechecked all the settings for uk and they were all correct.  He said he read on some web site about it is a hardware setup problem.  My computer is really disappointing with speed as well he said this could all be linked.  We bought a cheap laptop for my daughter for christmas and it is far quicker than my expensive one.  I have a Satalite P300-160. 

 

Hope someone can help!!!!

Control panel ---> Regional and Language options ----> Languages ----> Details 

 

In here you can adjust for which Keyboard you need

 

At the moment you have US Keyboard and need to change it to UK

 

I am sure you can figure that out.

 

Have fun

All settings were set to uk.  A new keyboard had to be set up. So when the keyboard was set to extended.  It now works ok. Although computer is still running slower than my daughters cheap laptop.
