Keyboard Problem

  sheila.weston 12:54 01 Oct 2004

After a hard disk replacement, some of the characters on the keyboard have changed places - in particular the signs for @ and " have changed places. Has anyone any ideas?

According to the keyboard Properties I have a standard 101/102 keyboard or Ms natural PS2 keyboard. It is made by Logitech.

All the problems seem to be related to characters using the shift key.

Many thanks for any help.

Hi Sheila, Go into the Control Panel, Click on KEYBOARD / Language tab and set the language to English (British) and make it the Default.

You may also have to go into Control Panel, Regional Settings and make sure it is English (United Kingdom) as well. You might be asked to insert your Windows disk, so have it ready.

you will need to log out and back in again to make the changes effective.

Many thanks. I had already been to the keyboard window, but the Regional and Language window showed the 'US' ticked. I haven't restarted yet, but am sure that you have solved the problem.

Yes, it seems to be sorted out now. For some reason the UK choice seemed to revert to the US option before, because I had definitely changed it once. That is my story, at any rate!. Many thanks.
