Hi,

I have a Compaq Presario C700 Notebook PC and run Windows Vista Home Premium, but for a while now I've had a strange keyboard. Basically a few of the letters are mixed up, for example to type [@] I have to type in ["] and i can't even find backslash as whenever i hit that key it comes up with [#]...anyone got any ideas on how to fix?

Thx

Thats sometimes caused by the regional / and language settings.

Go into the Control Panel, Locate the Region / Language settings , keyboard - whats it set to ?

It needs to be set to English (New Zealand) - US.

Changing keyboard settings from UK to US would have fixed it I think.

If in doubt, use the USA layout.
