Would someone be kind enough to tell me what has gone wrong with my keyboard?
My @ key now only works when I use the colon key and vise-versa. I've tried three different keyboards and have the same problem. I would really like to fix it but am equally interested to know how it happened. I can only assume it is a software problem. I am running Win98. Many thanks
Two things you could try. 1. go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, Keyboard, Language and make sure it is set to English (British) and then 2. go to Regional Settings and make sure it is set to Regional Settings English (United Kingdom). Now reboot you computer.
I think you'll find that pj123 is spot on here and this should fix you. Don't forget that if you have Word Processors with spellchecks, these must also be set to an English UK dictionary (unless you are particularly fond of what the USA has done to our language!).
