I recently purchased a new Gateway computer that runs Windows 7.

The keyboard that came with the computer appeared to be configured oddly - for example pressing shift and 2 would not produce an at sign (@).

I decided to replace that keyboard with the old Dynex one I was using; however, the wierd configuration seems to persist following the change.

Any suggestions from the IT-savvy as to how I might fix this?

Thanks.

It was a language issue.

Thanks to all for your suggestions!
