    I have the same problem but instead of the inverted commas when pressing 2, when I hit shift and then try and throw in a question mark, I get é instead, so whenever I type in a question, instead of a question mark I get "é" instead. I have tried going to the control panel but keyboards options doesn't exist there for me. Help me out please, Thanks.

The problem does not lie in your keyboard, but rather the keyboard layout settings. Go to control panel, keyboard options and select the standard US settings.

Be sure that your keyboard is configured properly. You should be able to check under the "Region and Language" area of control panel if you are in windows and select "Keyboards and Languages." Check that it is set as a US keyboard or that it's set to which keyboard type you are using.

Press the '2' key.

I have an Advent wireless keyboard problem


Your keyboard is probably set to the wrong region.

Start, control panel,Regional and language options,languages,details.

select united kingdom keyboard and delete the usa one.

this is right for XP - If your using Vista it might be different.

Also I bet the @ key will give you a " sign so this could be a temporary fix

@ key


This is a problem I had at onre time and it turned out that I had selected the USA Keyboard in stead of tthe UK Keyboard, you could have the same error or vice versa (ie Uk instaed of USA) so go to START then select CONTROL PANEL then select KEYBOARD and check which is selected and correct if necessary.
