KeyTweak Solved the Problem

Yes, it was set to US. The problem was the keys were mapped wrong. There were a couple of other errors as well. I found a free program to change key mapping...KeyTweak. Fortunately there was a function key that said, "Set to Default." That was all I had to do.

Thanks for responding.
