Keyboard " and @ keys switched - Vista

Hi there,

I have a LG and a viesonic keyboard wich I have tried on desk top running Vista business and the keys @ and " are switched and the £ sign comes out instead of the hash key. whicj is not on my keyboard ....

I have tried the regional settings and selected and tried English US and UK... I did the driver updates ....

Restarted my computer after each change

I thought that the Vista service pack 1 would solve this problem but to no avail ,,,

I ahve tried these key boards on PC'cs with XP and they work fine...

Please help ...

    I've got a Logitech Keyboard and the same problem.. However, according to my Control Panel info, everything is OK! Oh, is it?! And the whole trick delays my work as my job is based on e-mailing.
    Please, think of a solution..

    "no use...its vista problem.... :-(

    What sort of answer is that? You're a Wiz? I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3 and I have the same problem.

    So Wiz, is this really just an unsolvable Vista issue?

Pressing alt + shift ... this changes the key pattern of the computer only.... so the keyboard wont give any probs in other systems..

So press alt + shift and enjoy :-)

Restart the computer, before the windows logo comes up tap the "F8" key on your keyboard. If done correctly you should get to a screen where it will ask you if you want to proceed into safe mode. (This should work for XP, Vista and Win 7)

Hello, maybe you've got to switch the output from your laptop screen to the external screen, if so, it will be by pressing and holding down the Function button and at the same time pressing one of the Function keys (at the top of your keyboard). On mine, (an HP) it's F4, but you'll see a symbol on the correct key that looks like a screen. Regards, nicam49

How do i print screen i have hp laptop i have done it on a desk top but i can't do on this

Hi derekashwoor

The way thats it's done on a desktop is the same as on a laptop.
The differrence between the laptop keyboard is that you might have to press a function key and the print screen button at once to activate it.

Function key: fn
Print screen button: prt sc

Once you have done that correctly, then you go to paint in accesories and go to edit in the menu and click paste.

Let me know if your running Vista, because with vista there is an easier way...

Keyboard lock

Hi, because it is a Packard Bell your problem doesn't sound odd. I owned one at one point in time. They have since gone out of business. A keyboard that freezes is related to circuit malfunction. You have two options: open the laptop and clean out all the dust from everywhere especially under the keyboard. If that doesn't work reseat the processor. I will walk you through these solutions if needed. Just open a live chat with me. Good luck
