Strange behaviour after loading Windows.

  wesparmalee 10:46 18 Jan 2008

I've just had to reinstall Windows from scratch after a hard disk failure.But now strange things are happening with the PC.My keyboard for some reason has changed, for instance if i press the key for the @ symbol, instead of it being where it normally is, it can now only be selected from the "2 key.So for some reason they have swapped positions!Also a couple of other keys have swapped positions as well.Could something have been installed incorrectly, i'm using Windows XP.Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks.
