Hi,
I have a Sharp PCFJ140R that belonged to a student. It was converted to english for me but none of the keys match the fucntions. Eg. left and right brackets are 9 & 0 where on the keyboard are 8 & 9.
They are all like this.
I am running 98SE.....HELP PLEASE!!!
Thanks
Chris

well there are a cople of things you can do
1: Lift the keys up and place them in the correct place
2: Re-install Windows
3: Update Windows
4: Update your drivers
5: Ensure encoding is running on "Westin Europeian (iso)"

go 5,4,3,2,1
hope it works ;)

Thanks for the reply scOut but I cant seem to get the keys to work properly the glue seems to have gummed them all up!!!
Tried everything you said (well nearly). Still no good. If I plug in an external keyboard everything is fine. Other than putting stickers on top of the keys on the laptop to show the actual functions I am out of Ideas.
Thanks anyway,
Chris
