Is it an old keyboard? Laptop keyboard? Dirty? Clean? We need more info mate. – mickburkejnr Feb 4 '11 at 14:59
what does it type instead or does it not type anything at all? – rzlines Feb 4 '11 at 15:13

Is it showing a double quote instead? e.g. "

Have you got the correct language settings/keyboard layout set up in your operating system? Try changing it from UK English -> US English.

If it turns out to be a defunct keyboard and you have a numberpad on it you can always Hold down Alt, type 064 on the numberpad, then release Alt. Not a long term fix but may get you by for the moment.
