Hoping you can help me out! I have a problem with my PC's keyboard. The characters seem to be in the wrong place or missing - for example, the @ symbol is actually on the '2' button along the top of the keyboard (Shift + 2), and the £ sign is not there at all!! What have I done? Its becoming a real pain in the ar$e!! Thought it may be something to do with the language settings, but they are all set to UK . . . .

Your keyboard layout is set to US...
Which version of Windows are you using?
If you're using XP, click on Start > Control Panel
Then double click on Regional & Language Options.
Select the Languages Tab
Click on Details
You should see another box on screen with details of the default input language and the installed services. If UK keyboard is not visible in the installed services list, click on Add and choose the relevant options (English (United Kingdom) and UK layout). If US keyboard is listed, select it and click on Remove...
Click OK to close the Text Services & Input Languages box...
Click OK to close the Regional & Language Options box
One thing to add, when you click into Control Panel you may be in "Classic View". Click the icon at top left that says to "Change to Category View" to see the Regional & Language Options (probably in the Date & Time Category...)
Thanks both - will try your advise once I get home (am at work at the mo!!!)
Hi Both - it worked!! Many thanks. I now have a proper keyboard again!!
