When typing pound sign # comes up instead of £ UK user

On my recently purchased computer when I type the £ sign the hash # comes up, and other weird things come up when using shift on the top line of the keyboard. I recall this happened with my last new computer but I cannot remember the cure. At present I am having to use a computer at my local library, so it may take me a day or two to answer, depending on availability of a machine.  Thanks in anticipation of some help.
