Ideapad Y500 keyboard problems

Hello, this is probably a really simple thing that I'm over looking, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to type the @ symbol on my y500. I haven't even set it up yet, stuck at the part where it wants my email address.  Shift +2, Ctrl + Shift + 2, all not working... Please help!

Re: Ideapad Y500 keyboard problems

hi Lunatoris,


Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.


Shift+2 usually displays the "@" sign. If this doesn't work, can you enable numlock and press ALT+64 to display the "@" sign.




Let me know your findings
