Q: Solved: Problem with Arabic Switching

Hi there,

I am new ti the forum hope someone can help me out with my problem.
I have an application which will toggle between Arabic and English keyboard layouts as necessary.

Things are fine up to Windows 98. But with Windows2000 and with XP it is not switching from English to Arabic automatically but From Arabic it comes to English Automatically. Can you suggest any solutions ?

Note: When I install Hebrew Keyboard layout, the same application toggling between English and Hebrew

without any trouble. Please also note that the application doesn't use Windows API.

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 running Windows XP and attempting to switch my browser to Firefox but windows, or something else, is not allowing me to do it. I clicked on the above Download TSG SysInfo tab and then the save file button but nothing appeared here or on my desktop. I chose Firefox as my browser after the install but only got a few toolbars open on my desktop, all my program tabs I had with Windows did not switch over to the Firefox. Icon. I am at a loss of what to do. In the past I had no problem switching back and forth.

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. . .

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.

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. Because the RC is not available in Hindi or Arabic, we encourage you to either install Windows 7 RC in another language or reinstall a prior version of Windows before the Beta expires on August 1, 2009.

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

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"
2. Popular > Language Settings
3. Select your preferred language, click "Add" to add Arabic
4. Change your "Primary Editing Languge" to Arabic
5. Restart MS Word.

BTW, what version of Office you use?

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.

Hello darknight99 and welcome to Seven Forums.

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?

Hey guys,
I recently got a problem with my computer directly after attempting to replace my RAM. Once I replaced the RAM and plugged the computer back in, I got a long, repetitive beeping noise coming from the computer. In addition, none of its external ports, such as USB or the monitor appear to work. I tried replacing the RAM with the old ones, but I got the same result. Does anyone know what could have caused this?

One more thing. When I do start it up, it seems everything inside is functional. I can hear the fan spinning. I see all of the lights on the outside, and the cd drives work.

I have two different software programs that have this problem. If I have one or both of them open along with other programs simultaneously (like Excel, for example), and I want to switch to Excel from the program, I have to press alt-tab twice rather than just once. When I'm switching back and forth often, this double pressing of alt-tab becomes a real headache. How can this be fixed? I use a 2 GHz Pentium 4 operating WinXP Pro.

Hi, I have a current issue with my Acer Aspire M7720 desktop running on W7.

This problem started last saturday. When I pressed the power button, it doesn't respond. Only after much going through the process of plugging and unplugging all the usb and power supply, together with much spamming of the power button, then it would switch on. Anyone can help me cause I don't think this is a good way of trying to switch on my computer.

I am moving house and my ISP Virgin will not transfer their service to my new area because Virgin now only supports fibre optic connections I have agreed a new ISP contract and email address and I have emailed everyone in my address book to advise them of my new email from the end of the month So far so good However what with switching ISP. Problem do I do about all the web sites such as Amazon eBay and all the Forums etc that I Problem with switching ISP. am registered with The new ISP takes over from the old ISP on the same day The day I move house So if I want to change my registration details how do I go about it If I log in after the changeover date the website will not recognise my email address because I have a new ISP and email If I log in before changeover Problem with switching ISP. and register the new email the web site will not recognize the new email because the new ISP will not have taken over I am registered with dozens of sites and I really do not want to have to re-register with all these sites Am I missing something here Any advice would be appreciated I could set up a new email account with Gmail Hotmail or Outlook com now and register with the web sites but I really don't want to do this Are any of these free email providers better than the others I really do not need this in the middle of moving Any help appreciated

A:Problem with switching ISP.

You shouldn't have a problem logging into those other sites, it's only a login on their site, once you get your new email you can change it after logging in with your old one.

You have to go through the hassle of changing it anyway, they will just want you to confirm it by sending you an email to your new address.

I almost switched ISP's a while back so I know what you're going through, I went around and changed my email just about everywhere, it was a hassle.

Places like Amazon and EBay would the first ones to do, then the forums. You don't have to re-register with all of them just change your email in the account settings of each one.

I have Outlook and Gmail both so they are good alternatives if you want to start changing things now.

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

However, when my bios is set in IDE mode, a blue screen is shown immediately after the windows xp progress bar appears. My laptop works fine in ahci. How do i successfully switch xp back to ide mode.

As for full version windows xp set up disks, my laptop never came with any. What i have is a set of recovery disks made using Acer's erecovery tool.

Although i prefer AHCI mode, i'm sharing this laptop with my cousin (who owns this laptop and wants it in ide mode)

Hi, I'm having a problem with switching servers I think. Where I live there are a number of Linksys 10/100 16 port VPN routers providing internet through out the house.

I have problems with certain websites and games, they both involve passwords and user names and I think switching servers or receiving information from other servers causes me to disconnect. Yet for both instances I can log in when the stars are aligned but for the majority of the time I'm denied access.

What happens if you click "Y"?Does it try to sell you a program to correct the problem?

A:Switching User problem

Thats a problem with your video adapter and it could be because the user you are trying to change to has set the video settings outside the range of the software or your monitor. Try rebooting in Safe Mode and changing the video settings for that user. If you suspect a game may have made those settings then uninstall that game. Failing that you may need to uninstall the drivers for your video adapter and then reinstall them again.

My gut reaction was 'lol' at that screen shot; I've never actually seen the Arabic language pack in use. This was from a malware infection?? But let's address your problem, shall we?

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 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?

Thank you for your help

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?

My Toshiba laptop appears to be stuck into some sort of arabic or symbol mode. I have no idea how to get it off of there. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I have attached a picture to better explain my situation. Note: This is NOT a picture of my desktop, but this is exactly how my desktop looks with all of the icons and everything in arabic/symbols.

One thing to note, I've gone into the control panel and then into "Region and Language" and set all of the settings to English and it hasn't changed anything.

Please help. It's impossible to navigate these symbols!

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.

A:Arabic, Persian Text Prob While Copying

Asalam, Kaifa
This is because the arab wirting starts from end to front, You need to change your keyboard setting to arab rather than english

Changing a Keyboard on a PC (Vista)

Click on your "Start" menu and choose "Control Panel." In "Control Panel," choose "Regional and Language Options."


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.


Language Bar on VistaNow there should be a section of your taskbar devoted to the language bar. To switch the keyboard to Arabic, click on "EN" (which stands for English) and then click on "Arabic." Your keyboard is now ready to type in Arabic.

I have a user working on Word 2000 in Windows 98SE.

Her Word seems to have arabic options installed. These screw up her bullets and other symbols, as well as her dictionary and auto-correction. I don't know how the arabic stuff got there and she doesn't need them.

I haven't found any way to uninstall this option. I've looked in the menus and I've tried unistalling and reinstalling Word (but not Office), but it didn't work.

Does anyone have an idea for how I can get rid of this without reinstalling Office completely?

After cleaning out several viruses, a rogue security program and a TDSS rootkit, I have a few Windows programs that are being displayed with an Arabic font - mainly the Windows security center and wireless networking applets. Screencap attached. I know I've come across this before and thought the problem lied in the registry, but can't seem to find the culprit.

If you've run into this before and can add some insight, I'd appreciate it. Win XP Media Center, SP2

I am trying to help a friend with his computer. Problem is he has a laptop running windows vista that is set up in arabic, that is the filenames, the settings options and everything appears in arabic. It is not just the keyboard input, which is set up to use different languages through the regional and language settings in the control panel. I dont understand arabic, so is there a way to make the computer start displaying everything in english so that I can see what going on, and then have a way to set it back to being arabic? When I say set it back to arabic, i mean the display language, the input language, the internet explorer window so that the x appears in the top left and not the top right.

how can i do that

Just got a new dell with XP Pro installed. I have to log off in order to switch users. When I try to just switch users, the welcome screen flashes to my desktop and then back to the welcome screen and won't let me do anything else until I log off the original user. I have the fast user switch active and have confirmed that the RPC, fast user switch and terminal services are on and on automatic. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Fast User Switching won't work in every situation.

I lost my power lead for my Acer Travelmate 280 laptop and purchased a universal one. Everything worked fine apart from the AC connection to the laptop kept falling out and I had to wiggle it abit to get it connected.

Yesterday I couldn't boot from the battery at all. Without the AC supply nothing happened. With the AC supply it boots up and works, windows even charges the battery as normal. When i disconnect the battery or the power supply the laptop turns off within a few seconds. Even if i boot the laptop without the battery but just with the AC it will not work.

Have i damaged something that switches the power between AC and the battery with my wiggling or is it something else?

Thanks Steve

OS: Windows 8.1 Pro.
Problem: Sometimes I cannot switch between 2 languages.
I use left (shift+Alt).

It "fixed" only when I reinstall the language that I cannot switch into or when I re-log into windows.

I had the same problem In windows 7 and I fixed it by creating new keyboard combination to switch between languages. But I cannot find the Article how to do it on windows 8 pro.
