Keyboard Problem

  Doire_Bhoy 09:37 19 Dec 2007


Im having an issue with my laptop keyboard. A lot of the keys seem jumbled up.

For example when i hit the " key i get the @ symbol.

I have tried plugging in a external keyboard and still get the same problem.

Is there any setting i can change to get the keys i press to show the correct symbols?

Control Panel > Regional And Language Options > Language tab > Advanced button. Set everything to United Kingdom.

If it is also set for English USA delete that.And just show English Uk.
