Keyboard:Need to press symbols twice then get two
I have recently reinstalled Windows XP and now my keyboard symbols are weird. I have to press them twice for them to work, then it gives me two. My number " 6 " works fine, first tap and it's there... but with the " ^ " I have to press it twice. I can't find any drivers for this keyboard and everyone seems to just say; unplug, restart and change the USB slot. But none of this solves my problem. It is especially annoying when typing reports when my quotations have to be so difficult.

My keyboard is a Santek Eclipse, Model: KU-0603

Only these symbols are this way: ' " ^ ` ~

Everything else works just fine. I thought that perhaps I accidentally executed some program or option, but I can't find anything.

My husband finally figured it out. The option is in Control Panel>Regional and Language options >click the Language tab>Details button. Now click the Key Settings button, click the selection for "Switch Between Input Languages." Now click, "Change Key Sequence". Look for Switch Keyboard Layout and press the keys that it lists and then try to type and it should work.
