Are you using either Vista or XP Media Edition? Both apparently have an issue with using the tilde ( ~ ) key in games.

Googling shows that there are people with this issue in two or three other games as well.

If you have a remote device for media control, disabling that drive seems to free up the tilde key. If you do not have a remote media device, there seems to be no reliable fix.. at least, not that I have found.

I have this same problem (Vista, regular keyboard, no remote media driver) and have not been able to resolve the issue.

I can use the trainer but I cant enable console in-game with the tilde button (~). I couldnt either in oblivion without editing something but I forgot what. So it would be great if someone posted how to enable tilde console for those who cant I have vista 64-bit everyhing is updated. I'll google the oblivion method after im finished playing f3 lol. I need to go to a class at 8am for Pelco so i'll be gone most of the day.

Crap if you have Vista YOU cant open consoles in-game I cant find a fix!!

I had xp media before for oblivion which all I had to do is unplug the controller but this is a vista 64 and well you can see the problem.

So if we vista users try using console its impossible?! This is a vista compatable game for christ sakes.

it might be something to do with the windows instead; I had the exact same problem with oblivion on my vista laptop; I could not access the console there, but on my xp desktop, no problem!

It's not a screen resolution issue, the console isn't launching. If you attempt to enter a code as if the console were there and not visible, you just end up activating an in-game menu via hotkey (for example: god command launches rest/wait menu)

I've tried various resolutions both widescreen and 'regular', but it changes nothing.

It's clearly not affected all Vista users, but it's still very much affecting some Vista users. A quick google will give you page after page of hits about this issue for various games.

There's various things people have done to resolve this; however, no one resolution works for everyone.

I honestly have no clue what the underlying root cause of this is... but it seems to be tied to Vista and/or XP Media Edition.

But if anyone has a suggestion for a fix, I'm all ears. I'd love to get the console to function.
