keyboard reginal settings not UK

  iqs 18:03 27 May 2008

I fitted a new HD to a media PC I built,prior to the change of HD,my wireless keyboard worked OK.You pressed the U key,and U would appear,I press U now,and 4 appears.

I have gone into the regional settings,and all state UK???.When a wired keyboard is connected,the key config are correct.

Any ideas on how to sort this problem please.Like I said it worked fine before,and it is designed for XP.

What the @ symbol ?

Missing @ Symbol

Normally this is a result of having a system set up for the US and not UK

Workaround solution: (1)

( Press and hold Shift + 2 ) should give = @

Changing your system keyboard configuration to uk in XP

Click Start / Control Panel / Switch to Classic View - click regional and language settings - looks like a globe

Select the region that you want then click on advanced - ensure there is a tick in the very bottom box that apples it to every user and default user setting.

Now goto the languages tab - select the region that you want - then click on the add button.

In the little box if you have another region in there as well - select it then click on the remove button.

Now click apply and then ok - then restart your pc - that should sort that out for you.

This is assuming you have Windows XP Home/Professional.
