    I have just swapped from windows 98 to windows XP on my Compaq Presario, all
    went ok except that I now have some keyboard problems. The "pound" sign is
    missing and some symbols are now on different keys to what they were. Any
    help would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Peter

    Check Control Panel/
    /Regional and Language Options that it's set to UK English rather than US
    English.
