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 :-)

Plug your transmitter unit into an USB port,push the connect button on the TX, then push in on the connect button on the mouse and the keyboard. Also, install the cd that came with the KB/Mouse, to gain access to the features.

I have a Micro Innovations KB730/Kb740X key board. and scine I upgraded from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Ultimate, the extra buttons and scoller do not work. it functions as typing key board only. Is there...

Are you saying that everything worked under Vista? As far as I know this keyboard has not had an up to date driver since Windows 2000. When you do not run the driver the scroller and the top row of buttons will not work but the other features will work.

When you do run the old driver the scroller will work, the some of the top buttons can be assigned to other functions but some cannot. Also, when the driver is running the forward and back buttons only work for Internet Explorer.

Can't seem to unlock numbers.. tried FN key and nothing there is no numlock key

There is no NumLock key on that keyboard. But you can switch it off by accessing the Windows on-screen keyboard. XP - Start - all programs - accessories - accessibility - on screen keyboard. The keyboard appears on screen with a NumLock key. Vista - smiliar commands to get the keyboard up.

I connect key board but it seems dead iam using

I suggest you look in your device manager for a problem with the driver for your computer. The keyboard may be defective, id suspect the driver. Remove the driver/device and let XP fix it for you (reboot)

If you dont know how to do these things, please let me know

Let me know if this works for you

How do I print off a copy of the desk top?

Hi there.
Hit Prt Scr on the top right hand side of the keyboard, open paint and paste the screen shot in there, the click file and save as, save the file to your desktop or documents, then open the saved paint file and you should be able to print it off.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
