    I have problems with keyboard.
    Try to use @ and I get '' SHIFT and 2 give me " # gets \ and a few others.
    Have tried 2 keyboards (compaq & packardbell) same problem.
    Keyboard properties say it is a Standard 101/102-key or microsoft natural PS/2 keyboard.
    Running XP.
    Ideas please!!
    Thanks

    The problem is the keyboard layout setting.
    Go to control panel, regional and language options.
    Click on the languages tab, click the details button.
    Here you can set the keyboard language and layout.
