"@" on keyboard wont work?

  murgle 08:52 26 Mar 05


After reinstalling windows XP Home on my Father's PC, the "@" key will not work. Instead we get "'".

I have had this problem on my own PC some time back, but cant remember how to resolve the problem.

It is not the keyboard as it does the same with 2 other keyboards.

Any help appreciated.

Control panel, Regional and Language Settings. Set everything to English (UK).

Do as VOG states, but don't forget to remove the US Keyboard language too. My keyboard did the same despite setting it to British Keyboard (UK) and until I removed the US keyboard language it stayed!
