    I just reinstalled Windows 7 on my computer & since then my keyboard types @ for " and vice versa.
    The keyboard (Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000) works fine on another computer. I have tried every usb port & that doesn't help. Any suggestions?
    Should I try to reinstall Windows again? I guess I need to try another keyboard first.

    In the Control Panel, under Region and Language, verify that the region is set correctly, and that the keyboard is set to US English; remove any other keyboards.
