Hi guys, I am having real trouble with my pc in respect of keyboards the only one i can use properly is a ps2 or the onscreen both usb keyboards type incorrect characters and they both do different things. I even yesterday did a windows recovery (deleting all apps just not personal data) and it fixed it till i turned it on sgsin today! i have a corsair k55 and the proper drivers for that and a cheap generic usb keyboard off of amazon when i thought my k55 had died back when this problem started originally. I have 4 drivers showing in the keyboard section of device manager i can delete them all and reboot and they all come back. the k55 specific driver is in the HID section. I did fix it originaly and its been fine for a couple of months but now the problem is back and i just cant get it to work properly. both usb keyboards do differnt this aswell ed the k55 when you press backspace (in a text document) it puts in the time and date and the backslash turns on caps lock g and t are linked as are h and y the cheap one i cant really remember but it is different i am at a loss and so pissed as i have lost all of my saved games that id spent ages on on Space engineers grrrr can anyone help?

Long shot: Check whether each is set to UK QWERTY
