EN keyboard defaults to Arabic-but never installed

Q: EN keyboard defaults to Arabic-but never installed

I'm running Windows 7 on a five-year old Dell Dimension E520. Because of my work I'm using MS Word 97-2003. (Don't ask!) I write in English, but have Italian and French installed to toggle occasionally. I never installed Arabic. BUT as soon as I type the keyboard flips to Arabic. I change it back, it flips again. I'm going insane. In Control Panel/Languages, etc. it only shows EN, IT, and FR as installed. BUT on the toolbar, lower right corner it shows EN, IT, FR, and AR. I can't get rid of it. I can't remove it from Control Panel/Languages, etc. because it isn't listed. I've run avast anti-virus, and two malware scans, malwarebytes and super-antispyware. Nothing shows up. Anyone, I would appreciate any help possible. Thanking you in advance

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am trying to get the Arabic Phonetic keyboard, but I was not able to find it. Is it pre-installed in Windows 7, or do I need to install it? If so, does anyone know of any links for installation?

XP and vista had keyboard layouts for arabic + digits, so you could use the hindi digits.

It seems in w7, you can only choose arabic 101 without digits, no matter which country you choose, so there's no way for me to type the hindi digits like

I am currently running Windows Pro bit on my PC new computer I have found that in the last couple of months my keyboard has ceased working properly By this I mean most of my special characters no longer work properly Everything from quotes to question marks exclamation marks etc are no longer working or I get completely foreign characters AFter considerable investigation I have determined what is actually happening is that the OS is not recognizing my actual keyboard and is defaulting to the On Screen Keyboard OSK When looking at my device manager it shows an HID Keyboard device and an HID compliant Mouse I am actually using a Dell KM My keyboard and mouse are wireless I have tried uninstalling both working thru safe mode and recognize OS to Win keyboard, On Screen will Keyboard 7 not defaults uninstalling I have tried re-installing the correct drivers on several occasions and in several different ways but all to no avail The keyboard was even swapped out and tried on Win 7 OS will not recognize keyboard, defaults to On Screen Keyboard a nd computer it works on the nd computer I have also tried installing a completely different wired keyboard on the malfunctioning computer with the same negative results Existing restore points have the same issue and consequently none work I have tried searching for an updated driver but it tells me the best driver is already installed and I have searched the internet for other suggestions all to no avail It is clear to me that it simply will not accept any other keyboard or mouse driver I have also tried disabling the OSK but that too fails it still continues to go to the OSK even when configured not to Can anybody tell me or suggest something new for me to try I have even tried tech support for the computer manufacturer and their suggestion is to re-install windows This is NOT an option for me I feel my only recourse may be to go into the registry settings to try and fix which Im not afraid to do but I dont know where or what the correct settings would be Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated

My dad just installed some Chinese Program that makes you able to type chinese on computer or some crap like that.

Anyways now when im holding down CONTROL(crouch in Counter Strike), and when i press space(jump in Counter Strike), i can not jump. Basically, when im holding down control, pressing space(jump)does not do anything. I uninstalled the program or anything, but the program must have changed some defaults or something.

Anyone can help me to get it back so pressing space works even when control is held.

A:Removing Hp Default Installed Crap Programs/defaults/i Don't Know What

I discipline starting programs using the spybot advanced mode tools tab "startups".Slick commercial reminders to spend money bug me too.Might try unticking those listed one at a time to seewhat positive/negative effects result b4 actual removal by the utility spybot includes.Could be an "overide" configuration preset to effect IE start page thats either1. been overlooked2. made conveniently near impossible to reset (oh, we forgot that in our help pages ...)Locking the homepage is also possible in the spybot tools tab: IE tweaks.If it can be done there, someone can do it elsewhere I guess.An efficient way to approach it might be using jv16powertools.(scroll down here) combination approach using 1. the top button left on the jv16 console called "registry tools" which opens by default to comprehensive list of installed programs.2. using tools>Registry cleaner and approving the default dialog boxes (2) that precedethe actual scan for errors. Wait for scan to finish, inspect the results.Green icons = probably safe to = better approach cautiously by individual check-highlight-press "reg edit" buttonwhich takes you to the registry quickly to the "effected area".Choose to delete key, or modify the value, or better yet just know "the score" andleave it alone, but search around using the clues it'll give you.btw, edit>select>special select>green buttons will highlight/check all of those.Press "try to fix" first ... likely it won't, but it's a good practice doing thatb4 you press "remove". I often recognize them as "may as well remove 'em".A couple seconds later, I close the app, re-open it and concentrate on the rest.So, take your time. Take one or a hundred out with a click. Best to do it in such a waythat you know what was done so you can check functionality on "it", then move forward.

Word 2007 - My keyboard key for ? and / will default to the e with an accent for no apparent reason. Am I inadvertantly hitting key combinations which cause this? I can't make it go back unless I turn off the computer.

A:Word 2007 - keyboard defaults

Hi Nordy, welcome to TSG.

It seems the problem must either be a keyboard problem or a software problem. Do you have access to another keyboard and/or computer? If so, try either moving your keyboard to a different computer or moving a different keyboard to your computer. Does the problem still exist? If so, it's not your keyboard.

It sounds to me like you may be inadvertently changing the language of the keyboard, which can happen when you hit the Alt+Shift combination. Try that combination and see if that causes the problem to toggle on and off.

Hi girls & guys, I want to change the default email that my keyboard email button opens,from IE hotmail to Gmail.
Anyone know how that is accomplished ?

A:keyboard email button defaults to IE hotmail

You would have to figure out which applicatin is controlling your keyboard. Dells usually call it somthing like "multimedia keyboard configuration utility". check start/programs/your vendor name and see whats there.

Might also try opening IE, tools, internet options, programs and changing it here. If they key is set to open whatever email client is default, , that will do it.

Hi all
I finally figured out how to get spanish accents on my keyboard AltGR + letter. I can now write é á í etc fine!
However, I can't seem to write the ñ character, even when using the Alt + 165  as suggested by all the google results.
I've even tried the UK extended keyboard.
Also, more pressingly perhaps, is that I can't write the # symbol. I use Alt + 3 (where the # is on the key above the number 3) but it gives me the british pound sign: £
How can I write these two characters without having do download some program or copying and pasting them from the internet! Thank you in advance

A:US keyboard installed but can't type # or

I don't have an answer for most of your topic. But you say this is a US keyboard and "Also, more pressingly perhaps, is that I can't write the # symbol. I use Alt + 3 (where the # is on the key above the number 3)".Would not the # symbol on a US keyboard be Shift + number three key? Not Alt + number three key?

Once i installed windows 10 i started to get little problems. my keyboard was kinda shut off when i wasn't using it, ex: When i wasn't writing or touching my keyboard my num light goes off and once i click on any button the num light goes on.
I dont know i think this is something with energy saving. but i cant find any option for this. This is very much disturbing while playing games. because then my character may keep going forward if i hold the W key. and this is really annoying. i dont actually can understand how to use the microsoft community so i decided to ask for an answer here. because you always answer my questions. hope you can help.

A:Keyboard problems once installed win10

Do you have a spare keyboard, one that's older?  Try using it instead.  Sometimes it's just a glitch when changing an OS (happens with Linux too), that the settings aren't completely recognized.  So try an older keyboard, and if it works, keep using it awhile.  Then switch back to your current one.
If the older keyboard doesn't work also, then it's likely a language problem.  So type 'language' in the search box (true ever since Win7), then select 'Region and Language', then the Keyboard tab, see what are the settings. Maybe change them and then change them back, to force the OS to 'notice' the setting.
This matters, as parts of the OS are programmed overseas, and parts are programmed local, so 'English' isn't even really the same in all locations.  So it might be a bug leftover from someone else using an 'English' keyboard which isn't in YOUR location.

Hi all

I installed a new keyboard this morning, the Razer Tarantula. Now my headphones, Logitech --->,en
is experiencing mega feedback in them.
I unplugged the headset, tried various different USB ports for it and still the feedback persists.

I removed the headset and the sound coming from my speakers is fine.

It seems like installing the keyboard is messing with my headphones. Any ideas?

A:Installed keyboard, now my headphones have feedback?

Installing the Tarantula may give you a bit of a fright at first since Razer is requiring you plug in two included USB cable connections in order for the keyboard to work

@shouck886?, Hello and thanks for posting on the HP support forums.  With this battery issue try popping it out and inspact the socket.  Make sure there is no corrosion.  As well if you have a volt meter check to see if there is the correct voltage coming off the battery. I have purchased new batteries in the past that had sat on the shelf for a while and they worked but only for a short time. If there is no corrosion and the battery is showing full voltage. then you are dealing with a board issue on that side.  You have already updated the firmware so you are covered there. The next step will be talking to HP phone support for repair options. Use this link to contact HP support. Contact HP Support. Please let me know how things go.  Thanks again for posting and have a great day.

I cannot log into windows at this time since my keyboard and mouse wont connect. I am able to use the keyboard and mouse in my bios though. Is there a way i can uninstall the driver i installed using command prompt without logging into the computer?

You can still change the keyboard to write in Arabic. Whether or not you can read Arabic, I dunno But the OS isn't available in Arabic per this statement

*Note: If you used the Hindi or Arabic language versions of the Beta, thank you for helping us test those languages.

I have a form where two languages be entered at the same time, I have got the words and text entered in english and arabic , but when it comes to numbers and dates , it just stays as english . I tried through the control panel and change the neccassary but still the numbers stays english. If I completely in the control panel changed to arabic, all the english date and numbers are in arabic.

Is there a way that when pressing the ALT SHIFT the numerical also change to arabic ( text is fine in arabic ).

A:Arabic numbers

First, what program are you using?

it happens when you dont have an arabic font installed and selected as your text style. For example, if your default font is Times and you switch to arabic keyboard, it will let you type arabic but won't type the arabic numerals.

if you are typing in word, try to change over to an arabic font (not Adobe Arabic).

P.S. you will be able to type english numbers when you switch the keyboard to english and your font is an arabic font.

My first guess would be your computer picked up some malware. Update and run a full scan with your resident antivirus and antispyware. Then run a couple of on-demand scanners (all free) like Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, SuperAntispyware, Comodo Cleaning Essentials, etc. On-demand scanners offer another layer of security because there's no such thing as an antimalware product that's 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.

I looked up the IP address showing in your screen shot. It comes back to Pakistan Telecommunication Company LTD in Punjab. Do you have any connection with that company like are they your internet provider?

I just installed the Arabic keyboard through the Control Panel->Keyboard settings.

Arabic is written right to left unlike English. When writing on Microsoft word, the letters were written in the correct order, but the words are not being place in the correct order i.e. the next word is being placed to the right of the previous word when it should be on the left. The cursor is the correct type for right to left typing.

Any help to fix this would be appreciated.

A:Typing in Arabic issues

Try this

1. Go to "Word Options"

Hello, I have a bit of a strange problem with my HP Pavilion notebook which I find a little irritating, Instead of surfing using my Administrator account, for security reasons I created a standard user account for run of the mill tasks, which would be fine, apart from the fact that any google listing that appears on my screen comes along with what seems to be some kind of Arabic translation, and also the listings are indented from the right hand side instead of the left, this problem does not occur with my administrator account, also when I switch between my administrator and user accounts I have to disconnect the USB mouse and re-connect it before it will work. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

OK, I've got an update on this problem: As far as the Arabic bit goes, it seems to be a Opera problem (does not occur using Firefox). As for the problem with the mouse locking up after changing users, I found a (Fix)!!! the fix goes: if it is an HP laptop/notebook this is caused by the hpqwmiex.exe service, if you disable the service from msconfig the problem disappears, this does not work, it is easier just to disconnect/reconnect the mouse when changing users, bye the way the track pad us unaffected by this problem!.

Hi all you savvy experts,

I recently bought a Toshiba Laptop in Saudi Arabia. It came pre-installed with an Arabic version of windows 7.

I have managed to change most of the language options to English under the control panel, but the core of windows is still Arabic, I see this with the welcome message in the beginning and some install/uninstall and error messages.

After contacting Microsoft support, they said that I should contact the manufacturer (Toshiba) and ask for a new OS in English.

Can anyone help me?

Kind regards,

A:Arabic to English Windows 7


As far as I know you have two options:
1/try to order original recovery installation disc on
2/you must install own OS version using original Microsoft installation disc

If you use option 2 you must buy Microsoft disc and pay valid licence for it. All necessary drivers, tools and utilities you can download from Toshiba download page

Dell generally charges repairs for other than mainboard or screen replacement at a flat rate that probably exceeds what a local shop will charge, but you will find the Spare Parts line and out of warranty support here:
They'll generally charge for a repair estimate and then apply the charge to the cost of the repair.    In the US, a keyboard replacement is a flat $149 -- the keyboard itself is likely under $50 and is a user-replaceable part.

Unicode 8 and 16: Although I had originally used 16bit and the problem remained.

Any other suggestions still end up with an issue regarding unicode. However, I have tried using both 8 and 16 and nothing works. Thus far, Salesforce have not been helpful so I would greatly appreciate any help here.

Is there a way to change the default font size of the Arabic font of choice in IE? I see where I can choose which font, but I don't see an option for its size, other than changing all fonts. Roman letters appear much larger than Arabic and to enlarge all to accomodate Arabic makes the Roman letters huge!

The alternative might be to locate an Arabic font that is inherently larger and add that to the list of options, but I don't know what font that would be nor how to add it to the list in IE8.

There has to be a way. Anyone have suggestions?

A:Toshiba laptop stuck in arabic mode?

Hello cbbi and welcome to TSF,

When you say you've set all languages to English, are you sure you've set the Display Language aswell? If you've done so, most likely your install is corrupted by a malware/virus.

Please try to boot the machine into Safemode (Press F8 during startup) and see if the problem persists in there.

If you can start an administrator Command prompt (Start > Search > type "cmd" > Rightclick "cmd.exe " > Run as administrator) you could try to run a system files check and see if that clears it up, simply type in:
sfc /scannow

Also try restoring the system to a previously known working restore point (Start > Search > type "rstrui" > Hit ENTER).

Let us know if any faults occur and how you get along.

Hi I have a new computer with the following details:

With Windows 7

The layout of the keyboard is different and the usual place of key for the letter 'Thaal' (which used to be on the left of the number 1) is no longer there. On the keyboard the 'Thaal' is now printed on the other side beneath the 'Daal' but when I try to type it, I only get a backslash.

There are two keyboard layouts installed on the computer but neither of work, I only get a backslash.

Is there a keyboard layout available which is compatible with the key layout on this computer, that I can download?

Click on the "Keyboards and Languages" tab at the top of the window. Click the "Change Keyboards..." button.


With the "General" tab highlighted, click "Add" button to add Arabic to your language choices.


Choose Arabic from any country, making sure that the keyboard feature is also selected. Click "OK." Keyboards vary in some countries, but generally are uniform. This can easily be changed if needed.


In the Text Services and Input Languages window, click the "Language Bar" tab. If using Vista, click the radio button next to "Docked in the taskbar." Click "OK." Click "OK" again to complete the change.

First, let's start off by going into detail about your 'Regional and Language Options'. Was the regional options set to English? In the 'Language' tab, is the 'Text Services and Input Languages' option set to English as well?

Also, are you able to use a Win XP installation CD to repair Windows? If I'm not mistaken, there is an option to select your default Regional Settings there as well. Post back here with more details! Good luck. =)

Hi all, just 2 weeks back i've come across a new problem in Word2000. I've a friend try to change the font sizes in Word 2000 when using Arabic Fonts. But she is unable to do that. But if she were to try changing the Arabic Fonts size in Excel 2000, she will be able to do that. I've tried logging on as another user id (Windows 2000) but the problem persist.

Have also tried to repair office, un-install/re-install office, re-create a new profile for her, but nothing seems to work.

Any ideas?

I clicked something and was greeted by malware that created https popups in Explorer.  Below are the my attempts to correct.
1. Deleted the new programs from the change and remove programs. 
2. Ran Mcafee - nothing noted
3. continued to get popups
4. deleted directories with same name "tool bars and extensions"
5. continued to get popups
6. downloaded Malwarebytes and found several pups and quarantined  all.
7. rebooted. 
8. No longer can i log in, language seems to be Arabic.
9. I tried to refresh but would not work- it made me log in. this is where i noticed that the language was set to ARABIC 2. 
The computer boots fine, I cant read the language and my password does not work. 
Would a restore to a restore point reset the langauge? Is there any way to recover this PC?
The computer is a Lenovo laptop, running windows 8.1.

Hello. I'm an American living in Saudi Arabia. I just bought a Toshiba ultra book. It is very sleek and nice. But everything shows up in Arabic when I use Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. The default language in the control panel is already in English. The location is USA. The desktop is in English. But browsing is all in Arabic. I don't want it to translate...I want all the browsing to be in English. HELP!

In chrome check Settings > Advanced Settings > Languages (or their Arabic equivalents).

I have a lot of vocabulary translated from English to Arabic and saved in word files. Up until now I was using MS Office 2007 but after the update to version 2013 the arabic words became disordered. I will give you an example with an english word- instead "faction" it is displayed as "noitcaf". Can anyone tell me is it possible to rearrange the letters at once or I will have to do it manually one by one?

Hi Usercloud, welcome to the Seven Forums.

For Arabic, Hebrew or any other language written from right to left to work in Office as they should, you need to add corresponding input language and enable its keyboard layout. In your case, have you added Arabic as input language and enabled Arabic layout?

I have win 7 Professional on the other PC & arabic works fine. I can read the text & type. But I am installing Home Premium on this other PC & I cannot get it to activate. "Region & language" appear the same but it ain't working. Lucida console is default font on both systems. I only want arabic as an optional language to read & type with 'on call'. English to remain as system language.

Does Premium lack arabic fonts? Appreciate some guidance please.

I've just upgraded from IE7/Vista SP1, x86, ITA to IE8.
Everything works fine except one thing: IE8's Live Search accelerator to tranlsate text is in arabic-english as default instead of the expected english-italian. If I change to english-italian settings won't be saved.

If I use InPrivate browsing or disable Protected mode it's ok instead.

This problems has been already reported by other users some months ago with the betas: Microsoft Translator Official Team Blog : IE8 Beta 2 - Translation Accelerator

Hi all I've been browsing this forum off and on hunting for solutions to my many troubles with Vista over the last several months and I've finally had one that no one else seems to be having or solving For background problem Premium 32bit Home Arabic installation in - language SP2 pack? I am SP2 installation problem in Home Premium 32bit - Arabic language pack? running Home Premium bit on an HP laptop with SP currently installed When I SP2 installation problem in Home Premium 32bit - Arabic language pack? try to install Vista SP from my primary account I am the system administrator it informs me that 'Installation was not successful' due to to a 'system error' It then instructs me to run the quot Check for System Update Readiness quot tool CheckSUR to attempt to solve the problem which I have tried several times Not counting the time I installed it back in April when it first was released The error code in question was TRUST E NOSIGNATURE x b I have run through the entire list of options to try on the Microsoft official help page and have begun to try a few other things in order to solve the problem Most recently I attempted to install the service pack from Safe Mode where it informed me that the REAL problem was that I have a language pack installed that is not supported This confuses me because I don't recall ever installing the Arabic language pack have certainly never been to Saudi Arabia and don't speak or read Arabic The only language pack that shows up in the list of installed language packs when I run LPKSETUP as suggested on another thread here is English Though this WOULD undoubtedly explain why I've been seeing an optional update in my Windows Update dialog for Arabic language support for the Windows Help Needless to say I hid the update but it hasn't changed anything either Out of desperation I have even attempted to remove all the folders marked ar-SA from the Windows folder but this hasn't seemed to affect anything - the service pack still won't install and still gives the same error So you know what I've tried and something of what the problem is The other issue I've been having which may or may not be related is that my quot Turn Windows Features on or off quot dialog shows up blank Much to my annoyance But that's likely an issue for another thread And as it does not appear in Windows Update I have been trying to install SP from the Standalone installer Any help would be greatly appreciated - and thank you in advance

A:SP2 installation problem in Home Premium 32bit - Arabic language pack?

Is there anyone out there who can help me? I'm still struggling with the problem, and as Vista has been rather buggy for me lately I've started experimenting with Explorer alternatives. This has helped, amazingly, and quite a bit, but it's still only a stopgap measure. I need SP2, and the many fabled fixes it brings.

Still getting the same "due to a system error" message from my full boot. Should I try Safemode again, or is that just going to give me the same issue about the language pack? Does anyone know a way to get rid of one of those things?

Or should I just be waiting for the multi-language installation of SP2 in the hopes that that will work? Considering that I only have English listed as installed, though, that seems like a sad option. . .

using Google translate I translated "Zekrom Black is in Kuwait" into Arabic because I am making a picture in photoshop about friend's archeology intern in Kuwait so the title was going to be that in Arabic. but Windows 7 is copying the translated text backwards, even in notepad, it goes right when I hit the left arrow until it hits the word "Zekrom" (Zekrom is at the wrong spot in the pasted text (different than Google)) then Windows 7 goes in the right direction.

how do I get Windows 7 to paste the text properly and go the right direction?
