keyboard configuration

  baldyx 17:38 23 Feb 2004

I have installed Windows 98 followed by upgrading to windows XP. Now I have problems with some keys , e.g., The 'pound sign' and ~ . I have to use other key for these.
When I press the 'pound sign' key i get the hash key.

Please help.

You have the keyboard set for US - go into control panel, keyboard and set it for UK.

Regional and Language options in Control Panel.

If you have full 98 cd u can just put xp on system without 98 going on first may save probs later.
