keyboard problem

Hello experts,

I use XP pro and have recently had a big surprise as for no understandable reason my keyboard is acting up. The @ key no longer produces @ but gives " instead. the # key gives me £ and various other keys have also changed their minds as to what they produce. I have checked the regional and language screens on the Control Panel and have everything showing English UK. I have ytried changing it to English US but that doesn't help. I have a NEC Direction Athlon 900 and all has been well while using 98 SE. When I switched to XP Pro all was still well, but as stated for no reason at all the keys are not all producing what they should. Can anyone help me please? I would be grateful.

Thank you.

Have you checked in Control Panel/Keyboard ?

On some systems pressing the ALT+SHIFT keys together toggles between US and UK.

You need to change the language from US to UK.

Control Panel.Regional Settings

As I said in my original message, I am already on English UK and have checked that thoroughly via Control Panel and Regional Settings. I have also checked the Keyboard in Control Panel, but cannot get the keys back to normal.

Thanks for trying.
