For keyboard try, Control panel, Reginal and language, Make sure it is English UK, That is showing, And not English US,Think that is how you do it,

If it is not the control panel one that works, Try, Tools, Internet Options, Down at the bottom press languages,Make sure its English UK that is in there, One of them should get your keyboard working properly,As for your sound I am not sure, Will leave that for someone else to advise you.

In Regional and Language Options you need to look on the Languages tab, Details button and set keyboard to United Kingdom.
