Microsoft keyboard gone crazy!

Hello All,

My PC crashed a couple of weeks ago and I had to set up windows XP again using the recovery disc. Since then, the screen doesnt match what I enter on the keyboard.

Eg, if I press shift> and 2 together, I get @ when I should get "

It seems that it is the symbol keys that have gone a bit to pot.

Does anyone know why, and more importantly, how I can get it back to normal.

Hope this makes sense.

Best regards,

Control Panel, Keyboard and/or Regional and Language Settings.

Yes go into control panel and click on keyboard and change the language to British/english, at the moment it is set on American/English. J.
