OT: keyboard screwed up. £ key instead of number sign....

" instead of @ and visaversa.

this is driving me nuts, I even bought a new keyboard!

where in windows XP settings do I look for activating (deactivating) the £ symbol?

No disrespect for our British brethern but on this side of the pond I don't have much use for it!



Ok a litle troubleshooting and I found my # key.
not in the right place but it's there.

Ok I fixed it, now to keep the kids away from the computer....

It's not a Keyboard issue... it's a processor configuration issue.

Assuming you are Billy-Boy's XP-Software... (MicroSoft Windows-XP)

(After posting and re-reading... I see you are using XP)

Go to the Control Panel then select "Date, Time, Language and Regional Options".

On the next screen, choose "Regional Language".

This will present a Menu where you can change the Language type from whatever version of English you might be using...
(English)New Zealand...
(English)South Africa...
or... (English)Zimbabwe...

to (English)United States.
