Specs: Windows XP, 1.6gh/1gb
Just got the new netbook. In the start I was asked to chose keyboard layout. I selected US. But later I notice the keyboard has they key symbols of Irish layout. That is for example the @ symbol is not shift + 2 but above the right shift key.

I tried to change the layout by control panel > keyboard/ regional language but with no luck.
Any suggestion pls? Many thanks!
