I replaced my keyboard because one key did not work. at first no problem but now the same key has the old error. The new one was plug and play. The problem key is for the 'at' sign which comes up as "

Chosen solution

It is possible you accidentally changed the keyboard layout by using a key sequence to rotate the keyboard layout. I don't know if this still works the same in Windows 10.

Windows remembers the keyboard layout setting per application and you may have changed the keyboard layout by accident via a keyboard shortcut.

Was the keyboard new or used? And what computer are we talking about?

HI, sounds like some corruption in Win 10.

Please : Use the Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu and select Command Prompt (Admin).

Type or Copy/Paste the following command and press Enter:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Reboot after.

Or if go to System --> About and you are not at version 1803 do this : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

If are at version 1803 Then from the search bar suggest type Troubleshooters also try : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Troubleshoot-font-problems

It also could be hardware if us a plug in keyboard try a wireless and if it is a Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse can do this : https://www.microsoft.com/accessories/en-ca/downloads/mouse-keyboard-center

Failing all of the above see a forum for help : https://www.tenforums.com/
