    Keyboard not working properly with Windows Vista

    Keyboard does not work properly with my PC running on Windows Vista. When I type question mark, my screen shows ‘É’. This anomaly can be seen on certain other keys too. How can I avoid it?

    Re: Keyboard not working properly with Windows Vista

    You should first of all check the keyboard language is set as ‘US (English)’. For that, you should perform the following operations in a step by step manner on your PC.
    • Click on ‘Start’ button
    • Click on ‘Control Panel’
    • Click on ‘Regional and Language Options’
    • Click on ‘Keyboard and Languages’ tab
    • Click on ‘Change Keyboards’
    You should then confirm whether the language set under ‘Installed Services’ option is ‘US (English)’. If it is so, then you should run the System Restore Utility to resolve this issue. To perform that function, you should first take the following steps in a consecutive manner.
    • Click on ‘Start’ button’
    • Click on ‘All Programs’
    • Click on ‘Accessories’
    • Click on ‘System Tools’
    • Click on ‘System Restore’
    You should then click on ‘Continue’ option or give Administrator credentials if prompted. After that, you should click on ‘Choose a different restore point’ option and then on ‘Next’ option. Then, you should select a Date and Time after which the first sign of issue get started on your PC. You should then click on the check box near ‘Show restore points older than 5 days’ if the selected date is in excess of 5 days before the first sign of issue.

    Hi,

    Your trouble might have come from different corners, and let me tell you some,
    You may have wrong language pack for keyboards installed, and change that following :
    Click "Start" , Click "Control Panel" , Click "Regional and Language Options" , Click "Keyboard and Languages" tab , Click "Change Keyboards",

    Or you may have issues with youe keboard Driver software, log on to Microsoft website and download afresh copy of driver software following the version of Windows you are using.
    Right Click Computer > Manage > Device Manager > Keyboards > Right Click on it > Click Update.

    Follow those steps.
    Thanks.
