Hi,

I have been given a laptop to look at that has a japanese keyboard. When i try to get any symbol like @, which is on the same key as [, i only get the [ symbol. This happens regardless if i press the shift key. I have tried loads of combinations but nothing works. I have also noticed that when i try to use keyboard shortcuts like ctrl + F for find, the help screen opens. He only wants to use this laptop for english so is there anyone who has come across this issue or knows how to sort it.
Below is a link to a picture of the keyboard itself

I have messed about with the settings in regional and language settings but have had no luck either.
