What character do you get when you press the @ key?

Try the quotes key, if the keyboard is set up US they can be swapped

keyboard setting might be set to another country and i think the " and @ keys are different

You've got it set to 'English USA' (as if there is such a thing)!
This (for some reason) transposes the @ and " symbols. It's a mistake may people make when setting up their machine as Micro$oft set it this way by default. It's easily rectified.
