Keyboard gone nutty

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by VCM, Jul 12, 2009.

  1. This is weird ..
    Just removed vista to go back to XP a cpl of weeks ago.
    I've noticed something strange with the keyboard.
    It wont display the @ key on screen when I hit it's key.
    ( I had to copy and paste @ just to get that up. )
    What I do get, however is this: " ( quotation mark )

    Am buggered if I know what to do. All other keys appear ok.
    >> just noticed it also wont display the key SHIFT-3
    it puts the 'pound' key on screen
    :? :?

  2. its probably set up as an English (UK) keyboard, change your keyboard settings to English (US), maybe see if there is some drivers you can update to.
  3. If it's a layout issue can can fix that in regional settings in control panel.
  4. Just checked regional settings .. set to English Aust.
  5. I think this is similar to a problem i have had before...
    I installed a new keyboard then changed back to the old one and it seemed to fix the old one up... Don't know why, maybe software issue?

  6. Fixed! .. I think
    Had to go into Language bar, deleted English UK
