Hi,

I apologise for this way off topic post, but I know there are a few Computer experts on here- Keith, Bobbber...

Basically, a PC i have fell on it's arse and needed a fresh install of XP.

I now have the " and @ keys the wrong way round, and it's driving me nuts. I've changed the region to UK in Control Panel- no difference.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

John

Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options :

"Languages" tab

"Details" button

Remove the USA keyboard layout, add the UK one, set the UK as default (at the top).

Might need reboot as far inferior to Ubuntu Laughing
