thanx for reply, but my problem is the keys themselves


This sounds like you have the wrong top case. You appear to have the

F661-5590 and need the plain

661-5590. Buy this one and sell yours on eBay or see if iFixit will do an exchange: MacBook Unibody (Model No. A1342) Upper Case

You can ask iFixit here about the exchange: http://www.ifixit.com/Info/contact

You should be able to pop the keys out and reinsert them in the correct fashion - I'm assuming you've got AWERTY and need QWERTY, yes?

If you need punctuation keys that are in English layout, try eBay for spares/repair MacBooks, or there should be a seller peddling keys for an extortionate price somewhere.

If you don't feel up to popping your keys out and changing them round, you can get stickers or key covers for Logic, FCP, Avid and Photoshop that'll do the trick and add a bit of colour :)
