Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook ?

When I press Shift 2 on my T41, instead of @ I get " and vice versa


Answers :

Hi there.
The keyboard is set to English US, if you want standard UK keyboard settings go to the control panel, click on regional and language options, in regional options set both boxes to English (United Kingdom), you may have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect.
