Keyboard typing wrong characters

One of my networked machines (XP Pro) has a keyboard problem. The @ sign and the quotes are reversed and also the £ and # key type incorrectly.
I have checked regional settings and all is fine.
Does anyone know of any other settings where this can be corrected. I would be very grateful for any help.

Are you sure the Regional Info is correct?

If you have changed it have you rebooted it?

Sounds like the US keyboard drivers / settings at install instead of UK.

Yes all is set to UK, and was when this machine was reformatted last month.
I have now decied to try another keyboard.
Probaly won't work though.

Sounds like your machine has been set to use a keyboard with a standard US layout.

Go into control pannel and then regional settings. Go to the language tab and click details, all the stuff you need sound be in there

Thanks everyone. I'd missed that Details button.
All ok now.
