    i recently rebooted my computer, and the keyboards kinda went abit odd. my entire config is messed up, so when i hit shift, and another key that isnt a letter, i get a different symbol to the one printed on the key. i tryed reinstalling the keyboard drivers, nothing.. any ideas people?

    cheers

    have a look here:

    Start -> Control Panel -> Country settings -> language -> details

    (translated from dutch)

    There you can choose your keyboard lay-out. see what kindalyout you board is

    guessing from the translation, i fiddled about with the menus, but nothings changed. any other ideas? maybe something a bit less... dutch?

    fixed it, it had added 2 keyboards, one USA, one UK, and it was running off teh USA setting no matter how much i altered them. i just erased the USA keyboard, and its all working fine again.

    thanks.
