If everything in control panel-regional setting and language OK, try to press together FN+NUM LOCK (FN-after ctrl on your left side).

You can go to control panel and check the language selected under regional and language options. Check under the Regional optional and language - details tab, the language selected should be English (US). Let me know if this works.

    3.Ensure that all the check boxes are unchecked in this window and do the same for 'Switch to...(Keyboard Type)'

    There should be a sequence that you need to press to change it from one type of keyboard characters to another. Look for a key that has the symbol of a keyboard on it. Most likely this is the key that is causing you the problems. Typically you have to press the Function key that is near the space bar as well as the key with the symbol on it to change it from one character set to the other. Evey laptop keyboard is alittle different than the next when it comes to which keys are "functions keys", so you will have to examine your keyboard to find the correct key on you laptop.

    My toshiba laptop is typing wrong characters but my wireless tevion keyboard is o k. Is there a solution to this ?


    Sounds like the laptop keyboard went bad and thats why its typing wrong characters. Best way to verify this is to use a USB keyboard on the laptop, if the USB keyboard is typing the correct keys then you know the laptop keyboard is bad. If the USB keyboard is typing the wrong keys as well then you know its a setting in windows that is causing the keys to type wrong characters.

    The keyboard characters does not correspond to what appears on sc


    Does it type " by any chance when you press the @ key? if so this is usually because keyboard input is set to the wrong language in the regional & language settings are wrong in the control panel. try pressing the left alt key & shift at same time first this is a quick key to change between input languages.

    Wrong keyboard


    I suggest this, of course if you'd like: you change the keyboard layout to English (if you want to use English), can be UK or US.
    Then you change what is written in the keyboard buttons with the correct one ("English" letters).
    I know much in Windows, in Linux frankly speaking I don't know much (Linux has too many types). I got from this site:
    http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:change_keyboard_layout_in_advanced_mode
    how to change the keyboard layout:
    In Advanced Mode the default keyboard layout is set to the US. These instructions inform KDE to use a different layout; for example the UK.
    • Launch / Control Centre / Control Centre, and select Peripheral Devices / Keyboard Layout
    • Under Available layouts select your country then click Add ».
    • Change layout variant to eeepc.
    • Click Apply.
    • Under Active layouts select U.S. English then click Remove.
    • Click Apply.
    You can find the international keyboard layout here (example for English US):
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout#US

    If your computer already set for English keyboard layout, if you push your button, it should follow that international keyboard layout. (can be with some small modification). You can just try out for each button.

    Keyboard problems


    dear bangaloreboy , this may be due to your shift key is having a problem. This is permanently pressed or the other key is having some problem . If you think shift key is not causing a problem please check the key board settings from contol pannel .

    I donot think this is caused by changing the operating system.
