A while back my keyboard went a bit strange. (I'm using a microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse) The 2 key now has the @ sign when you press it with the shift key. instead of havign the " this is no were the @ sign originally was and is getting a little bit annoying for me. This is the same as the # sign and the the 3 key, there are also a lot more of my keys changing functions some have changed completly and others just won't work properly now.

If any one can suggest anything to try or what I could do I would be very thankfull :tazz:

Sounds like your keyboard layout has been changed to US English. If you change it back to 'United Kingdom', the " sign will be on the '2' key and the @ sign will be on the ' key. You should be able to alter the layout in control panel

When I go into the Control Panel and look at the keyboard settings there dosn't look to be a way to change it back to United Kingdom settings. :tazz:

Click start then control panel, date time and regional then regional options, click languages then details

The default input should be United Kingdom, click apply and reboot
