Is your keyboard set to the correct region? Start, Control Panel, Clock Language and Region, Region and Language, Change Location, Set all the tabs for United Kingdom.

what make and model of lappy?

  filthyphil 11:16 19 Mar 2010

acer aspire 5920

That model is a couple of years old now but looking at reviews and complaints I can find no comments about problem keyboards. Are you sure that it is not just a location problem caused by the change to Windows 7?

Which keys are giving you problems? It's not the @and " keys by any chance?

did you upgrade from vista or do a clean install of windows 7?
