Default Keyboard Issues? - 03-01-2011, 07:36 PM

Hey :

I reinstalled XP on a friends Dell Mini 9. The HDD looks to be about 8GB. Well the keyboard is not configured correctly. When I press shift 2 , I should get an "@" symbol. But instead I get a " symbol. After looking in the control panel /keyboard it says "Standard101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/S Keyboard".

Is this correct? Any ideas to fix it?

Setting keyboard matrix
1. Turn off your computer
2. If your computer is connected to the ac adapter, disconnect the ac adapter from the computer
3. Press and hold the following key combination for the desired keyboard matrix :
_ United States : <Fn><S>
_ United Kingdom : <Fn><K> [Choose this if the keyboard has an "Alt Gr" key]
_ Japan : <Fn><J>
_ Korea : <Fn><E>
4. Connect the ac adapter to the computer then plug it into a wall outlet or surge protector
5. Release the key combination
