Keyboard displaying wrong characters

  MuddyPaws77 11:49 10 Sep 2004

Have just purchased a new PC & I'm running XP on it, but have noticed a strange, and annoying problem with keyboard. Every time I type an @ symbol it displays a " and vice versa. Any idea what could be causing this & if there is a fix?

Thanks in advance.

Assuming you have a standard 'qerty' board
It has been set to USA configuration.

Go to Control Panel/Keyboard and select UK configuration

On XP you have to go to 'Control Panel-Regional & Language Options-Language Tab-Details Button'. Here you can add another keyboard (UK English) and make it the default. You will need to restart for the default to take effect.
