Keyboard problem

I just reinstalled WinXP as a 'new installation' and I think i selected the wrong keyboard type, i selected either US keyboard or US(international) keyboard. Now when I press a few shift function keys, they dun produce the value that is supposed to come out. For example, when i press Shift+2, it shd giv me @ right. Instead of giving me an @, it gives me ". I also can't do the pipeline. Can someone please help me out cos i have trouble using it.

=) Thanx alot
would really appreciate your help in this matter.

go in Control Panel -> Regional Settings & Languages -> Languages -> details -> and select the type of keyboard layout you want. Once there it's very simple  :)

You may have selected a Spanish style keyboard. Do the following:

1. Start
2. Control Panel
3. Regional and Language Settings applet
4. Look for input language tab
5. At input device service, hit details
6. Add whatever language and keyboard type you want.
6. Upper entry should be the default input device language

You can then remove the unneccessary input language (you may have to shut down first).

Try AltGr + 2 for @ and AltGr + < for | characters.

What KB type do you have, actually?
