  just learning 12:00 25 Aug 2007

Hi does anyone know where I can get a keyboard guide to the advent 7056 notebook . I bought mine second hand .I,m having a problem with the @ symbol it keeps reverting back to not working and I have to keep going into the icon on the toolbar and reselecting english uk extended to get it back! Not sure if I,m pressing something which is making it revert back to dvorok keyboard ! Whatever that is . thanks .

You have to make English UK the default setting

Right click on the EN icon on task bar

setting-change the language in the top default selection to English UK

They may be a way to change back from your Dvorak Keyboard Layout to an English UK keyboard

This is what I want you do, go to this site print out the instructions and just follow the instruction

In the Add area enter the following

In the Input language/enter/ English UK

In the Keyboard Layout/IME/ enter/ US

Apply and OK now go to the language setting area and see if listed

If it is make it the default keyboard

Now check the keyboard

If is now the back to the standard keyboard

Remove the Dvorak Keyboard Layout in the language setting

Hope this work if it does let know by posting and ticking the solved box

Us dvorak, us left hand dvorak, right hand dvorak or us international. I selected us international and the keyboard is working fine . The defaukt language is now set to uk engilsh. thanks . You may be right that the xp professional version which is installed is an american version !
