Wow! Thats an interesting problem.

This would be 1 i would tell one of my customers would require a onsite visit. So lets just start with some obvious stuff.

Navigate to the control panel
Find Regional And Language settings
Make sure you are set for English (United States)
(I cant find any language setting that switches the keys...)

Here comes the normal line of techie talk.
Is your anti virus up to date, and a recent scan done?

How about spyware scans?

Really crazy problem and i'm afraid its going to take some poking around to find the issue.

    1 more thing. you may try

    Start > Run > Msconfig

    Click the startup tab.
    Click the Disable ALL
    Click Apply
    Click Ok

    Reboot, and see what you got.

    At this point after a reboot, check your task manager, you shouldn't have more than 22-24 process's runing.

I had the same problem and hoped for an answer here! But I solved it very simply. It was a lanugage problem. Go into System Preferences, International, and make sure it is on English. Easy fix.

How to change setting for letters

I'll thing you'll find the keyboard letters are in the right place :-)

But being serious, you need to change the "regional setting" for the keyboard. If you go into the control panal and select the keyboard settings, you should change it to what you want (I assume UK)

Best of luck

I Spilt wine on keyboard. now some keys are writing wrong thing. Mostly numbers and letter o. Eg 9o 65 87 87 9o

I advise you to purchase a new Keyboard and not have any liquids in the danger close area.
Danger Close - If spilt, it will damage the keyboard.

My keyboard does not work, when you type some of letter the output is a number or the wrong letter and some the number do not outpout at all the 0,4,6 abd 8

Sounds like it might be time for a new keyboard. If you have another PC or have a friend with one, you can verify this by switching out the keyboard. Be sure to restart the PC after you do this. Keyboards are fairly cheap at least and are not usually worth repairing unless you enjoy doing it. Good luck!

It sounds like you have the 10,12,15,PS selector switch on PS with a 10, or 12 print wheel installed. Return to the left margin, move the switch to 10 and type.
