    Can anyone tell me how to make the @ key actually put an @ symbol in? Currently it puts a " symbol in and the " key puts and @ symbol in...

    It's really annoying, and the strangest part is, UK is the only keyboard layout listed in settings...

    Just for giggles, have you tried changing it to a US keyboard and see if that works?
    Also, wired keyboard or wireless? If wired, have you tried changing to a new USB port on the computer?
    Is this happening in Terminal or in the Windows Manger you have installed?

    US keyboards (and Mac layouts) have @ as the Shift-2 key anyway, but switching to US then back to the standard UK keyboard layout might kick it into using the correct keymap.
