Certain keys do not work as they should ie,when shift and 2 key pressed I get the @ symbol and shift and @ i get ".Is this the way an American keyboard is configured?(the laptop is an ex-demonstration model)

Sounds like it is set up as English (US). You should be able to change this in Control Panel.

Alternatively press ALT+SHIFT together - toggles between US and UK keyboard.
