    I have just bought a new keyboard after thinking for ages that some of the lesser used keys on my keyboard were reversed, and it was a circuit problem. The problem remains however. The @ key is actually the " key, and vice-versa. Also a couple of other keys are reversed too. I've looked everywhere on the net to try and reverse these problems but I'd rather not download a remapping program. Isn't this just a problem that can be easily fixed??!

    I think it may have largely occured after I installed XP Pro.

    Thanks

    Beech :confused:

    Sounds like the regional settings are off a bit. Go to the Control Panel and find Regional Options. Then change to US English.
