Keyboard problem

  Tigertops 10:52 07 May 2007

My keyboard on my first self built PC (amazing, it works!) has transposed @ with ". I know it is not the keyboard as I have tried another one--same problem. I am sure the experts here can offer a simple solution but it has me baffled. All the other keys appear to be OK
Can someone please tell me what I need to do to reverse these keys?

You haven't set your keyboard to the UK layout when you installed Windows - the US transpose these 2 characters. Reset to UK via Control Panel/Regional & Language/Languages Tab/Details button.

Thanks all, Problem solved!

(Well you can't remember EVERYTHING when you build a PC for the first time!)

That`s what I said to my wife when I`d finished building one and forgotten to take her out to dinner. Ouch!!!!
