Hi...on my other computer that I rarely use I cannot type a £ sign.
There is a £ sign on the keyboard but types a hash sign instead of a £
....Please how can I get £ sign.

sound like you have American English selected in your keyboard language settings, change this to British English
...thanks for that....how do I do it ?
Provided you are using Windows:
...'fraid neither of these work for me...running XP
I can get the on screen keyboard but only offers me 3 or hash
...thanks all....I've used the word "POUNDS" ....It'll do me
....It's just for an advert...I'm selling a bike.
Happens to me in certain programs at work. Tried a reboot?
Go into the control panel and click on the icon "regional and language" and see if it's on English United kingdom. If not, change it.
As has been said, it sounds as if you've got the US keyboard selected.
You should find that the # key will give you the £ sign and vice-versa.
The @ will be transposed with the " as well, if memory serves me correctly.
As Ken says, it's easy enough to put right.

...It was on English United kingdom....tried a few others...nothing helped.

As a matter of interest, did the # key produce a £ sign?

....tried that early on.... No nor did it produce a ~ It produced a # or a vertical line.
I don't think I know the correct way to produce a vertical line!
Sorry Mike, I really can't help.
I have a French keyboard (well, made in China, actually) - it has a £ sign but not Euro sign.....
