Issue with Keyboard Special Characters in HP Pavilion DV6-3004TU

I am using a HP Pavilion DV6-3004TU notebook. I just had my Windows 7 Professional installed. When I @ using Shift + 2 it displays " (quotation marks). It is vice-versa as well, ie., when I type " using Shift ' it displays @ symbol. I as well have issue with typing the hash symbol. When I type Shift 3 it displays £ instead of hash symbol. This is a brand new laptop and I am using an external USB keyboard as well for my convenience. This problem is encountered in both keyboards (notebook keyboard and external keyboard) as well. What do I do now? It has become a literal mess with characters making it difficult most of the times. Kindly help

That looks like keyboard layout issue...Looks like your keyboard is set to UK english...to check that...

  

To check that, Click Start, type intl.cpl in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER. On the Keyboards and Language tab, click Change keyboards.

 

You should see 2 entries English (united States) and English (United Kingdom). If true, delete English (United Kingdom). That should take care of it...
