Is there any other symbol appearing instead of "@"? Else, it may be a Hardware error.
Otherwise, give a shot changing your keyboard layout!

How long has this been happening? If its a newer problem, you could try a system restore to a point before this happened. Or try a sfc/scannow to look for/repair any corrupted system files. Heres a link for the tutorial :SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Are you putting the Caps Lock on and hitting the 2 key and expecting the @ to come up? It won't happen that way. Even with Caps Lock on, you must hit the shift key to make the @ come up. I doubt if that is what you are doing, but just thought I would point that out.
