Default keyboard Problem

I had to restore my computer the other day and when i came to use the keyboard some keys were swapping functions.


Where you would normally press @ it is swapped with " and various other wierd swapped functions.

Does anyone understand what i mean, and can anyone help me?

Yea, but why didn't you just change your keyboard layout in control panel?
