Typing in Arabic

Q: Typing in Arabic


I hope I am posting in the right place.

I need to transform my existing Logitech keyboard which has a German layout into one that can type into Arabic. Is there a way I can do so? I saw many stickers with Arabic alphabets for keyboards. Are these of use?

Looking forward to your help. Thank you.

I am running Windows 8.1. After restarts, the laptop screen would be blank, yet the computer would load. If I hooked up a 2nd monitor, it would show the desktop on that screen but laptop screen blank.

Now when I try to type on that computer (I'm currently on a different computer) the typing of the keys is all off (none of the letters actually type what they are supposed to and some open up random windows and command prompts)

I am wondering if this is a virus. Currently running Malwarebytes. I did a system restore earlier and the problem wasn't solved.

A:Blank Screen error and typing issues

Could be a virus, but could also mean the motherboard is faulty. If still in warranty, RTM.

Does the laptop have a bootable CD reader? If so, then download and make a bootdisk of a small linux (e.g. puppy linux). Booting off that will virtually prove if the motherboard is faulty or not.

Hello, I went through the process of cleaning my mouse while the monitor was off and I'm fairly sure I clicked something maybe I shouldn't have but after that the whole keyboard was messed up..

E shows up as ]
D shows up as ''

Esc, start, [ , n, y, I, F1-F12 keys don't register, among a few others..

Things I've tried so I don't waste anyones time.. [Windows 7]
Changed Location, Keyboard Layout (English - US) is the only language
Ctrl - Shift x1/2, Alt - Shift x1/2, and pretty much any other variant I could think of.
Plugged another keyboard in, same thing.
Plugged keyboard in another computer, works like a charm.
Restarted, plugged and unplugged. Uninstalled and tried to update driver..

Nothing worked so far, hopefully you can can make something happen.
Thanks in advance.

Sometime ago I spill water on my keyboard, on the area of character '1'. And ever since the key '1' keeps typing himself when unneeded.
After the splitting I detached the keyboard and dried it, I cleaned it several times after it too. When nothing helped I even switched to a brand new keyboard, but even this didn't help.
So if the problem not in the keyboard, where it can be? Maybe it's the old connections of the keyboard and laptop? Maybe the connection is a little wrong? Or on what another levels the problem might be..

Guys I'll be grateful for answers and advices, really want t solve this problem

A:Cursor jumping Asus Eee 1015, cursor moves when typing

As the PC is new I would return it under warranty as this is most likely a hardware issue.

The only quick fix that might work is to reinstall the touchpad drivers from the Asus site. You could also check in the touchpad settings to see what is set for making the cursor disappear during typing, change the setting from whatever it is at present and see if that helps.

I have an hp laptop and my keyboard is being acting very weird. When pressing almost all the keys, i get a group of letters. For example, when pressing "v" i get "bgv". some of them stopped responding at all. I used to get "1qa" when pressing "q", but now it doesnt even respong. Also, the on-screen keyboard shows that both shifts are pressed.

Can anyone help me with this?

I knocked over a small glass of water on my laptop last night, most of the water skirted off. I dried the computer by taking the keyboard out, opening the case from one side and using a hairdrier on low.

Here are the problems: Keyboard is typing by itself, types double letters/number and some keys dont work at all. I tried reseating the cable, but this did not help the problem.

Power - The main power button does not work. I can get the pc to power on by taking the battery out, unplugging the power cord from the back, then plugging it back in. If the battery is in or the pc has been shut down without the battery installed and with the power cord in, the pushing the power button does not power on the pc.

Please let me know how I can approach fixing these problems.

A:Spilled water on laptop, keyboard typing by itself/incorrectly/NAA and power issues

and the laptop is HP? anyway, we need the model name.
what would you do if you spilled some liquid on keyboard?
1. shut off the unit immediately!(that means, plug out AC cord and battery as faster as you can).
2. turn it upside down(if it's possible open it and lay it on the table upside down, thus the liquid won't spill LCD module).
3. after some time, start to disassemble it fully and clean inside the laptop.

in your case, the liquid is already damaged power chains inside the laptop, and you'll have to fully disassemble it and clean!

whenever i open my computer, it starts typing random things.

for example i cant write a normal text. because it seems like the 0 and . keys are stuck but they are not. so i get something like this appearing on my screen.

ex- .....................................00000000000000000000000000............

also everytime i click on a file a popup comes up asking if i want to delete the file. as if the delete button is stuck. but it actually isnt.

my start menue is always popping up like it is being held down. and same with all the F keys on the top of the keyboard. after unplugging the keyboard im still getting the same problem.

What i suggest is for you to either uninstall the drivers or use system restore to get back to a time before you installed the drivers.
Then boot up and let the os install standard drivers, see if all is well.

Also, double check your connections at the back of the pc and make sure there isnt a bent wire on the mouse or keyboard connector that plugs into the ps2 port at the back of your pc. I have seen that happen a lot, its easy to happen.

You are rightly concerned about malware infection so you need to start running scans to check this out. Which security programs are installed and have you run full system scans? SAS anti spyware and Malwarebytes are good free scanners worth downloading and running. This is a priority because the sooner you are onto malware and virus problems the better the chance of removing them.

I don't share your enthusiasm for Tune up Utilities and would uninstall it but you've probably paid a hefty subscription for the year. CCleaner is a useful free utility worth looking into but firstly check thoroughly for possible infection.

So with my upgrade to Windows 10 many little problems have arisen. My disk being at 100% (solved), my main clicks not registering all the time (solved), my mic and headphones not working (solved), but what I can't seen to fix is the typing. Since I upgraded, every time I'm typing my laptop will either stop what I'm typing OR it will move my place, so I continue typing to an earlier place inbetween words and such. It's very frustrating. It does it in and out of games, within notepad, notepad++, etc. and I don't know how to stop it. I would assume it's phantom clicks by my touchpad, but I never had this problem until Windows 10, and I do not get any phantom clicks while in game or anything of the sort which would make me change direction and such.

Hi. I use gedit as editor in my Linux systems (SUSE and Fedora); there I find that I can't type in accented characters like I used to do in Windows.

In the text editor in Windows, even using an English keyboard configuration, I could type in accented characters by entering a combination of Alt+<ASCIIcode>, for example Alt+130 would type in the accented 'e' character; this sequence doesn't work in Linux.

We have large RDS deployment with installed Office 2013 (curr. ver. 15.0.4701.1000 32-bit).
I have noticed a significant CPU load by Winword.exe process.
Further investigation showed that this load is generated during users typing. It takes up to 15% of core.
It seems that is not so much, but not on Terminal server.
Wondering, if Draft view is using (instead of Print Layout) CPU usage decreases.
Maybe, are there some settings to decrease CPU load during usage of Print Layuot (users don't want using Draft)?
Or some Hotfix?

A:Winword CPU usage during typing

That is not going to work. Print mode is usually read only.
If users are typing into the document it has to be in draft or review mode. Print mode is formatted for a printer.
Doing it the way you are/want involves word having to change the mode of the document each time you type (and could possibly be for each character)

I'm having the exact same thing on my Dell laptop. Are there any answers?
1) Please don't bump old posts. If you have a problem, start your own thread. Help will come faster that way usually.
2) This is almost always caused by the fact that the user of the laptop accidentally hits their trackpad with their wrist while typing, causing the cursor to move and click someone else, losing focus of the text box they were typing in. Some laptops are more prone to this due to their design.
The solution is:
1) Be more careful and don't hit the trackpad.
2) Use a mouse and disable the trackpad.
3) Disable trackpad's tap-to-click feature (if possible).

It won't register certain letters at all and some are random other symbols or letters instead of what it's supposed to be. It's driving me crazy. I didn't do anything different except start DLing Sims4.
I know restoring won't work if I can't get the computer to work right to get to that step. I can't get to my own desktop because the letters I need aren't all working to type in the ppassword. Any ideas?

I wonder if anyone could offer some clues here When I am typing on Facebook or in internet forums my Glitch Annoying Typing cursor often jumps to some random place Quite often I can be typing away and it will have jumped to somewhere else in the text or even out of the text so that Annoying Typing Glitch when I hit backspace it triggers the 'back' function of my browser I can't count the amount of times Annoying Typing Glitch I've lost whole posts to this phenomena It only happens with my laptop and I've never experienced this on my desk top system or any other system I've owned there it goes again while I was typing this I use Google Chrome since I had to stop using Firefox due to innumerable issues rendering it pretty much unusable I can't remember if it did this in Firefox or not Just wondered if anyone else has encountered this and if they know how to fix it I don't know if it's a Windows bug or a browser fault

A:Annoying Typing Glitch

Hi -
It is most likely either hardware in your computer or, do you ever come close enough to place a finger tip on the pad.
Do you normally use a mouse or just the Touch Pad on the laptop ??
There has so far (that I have found) not a Windows 7 problem related to this, usually one of the above.
As a 3rd option, have you ever cleaned the inside of the keyboard area, since dust (or similar), can cause this also ?
If you operate in a dusty area (heavy carpet or not well ventilated) this will (can) cause a build up inside.
Is there any issue with Internet Explorer similar to this, or have you not tried it yet ??
Also is the problem the same when you use Notepad or any OFF line program ??
Thank You -

A few weeks ago I had to do a restore on my computer because it wouldn't load up when I restarted it. Ever since then, random stuff will be happening when I'm typing. Especially when using Chrome. I'll be typing and a popup menu that you typically left click for will pop up. An HTML screen will open up. The tab I have opened up will even close as I'm typing. Other times the curser will just go to another part of the paragraph I'm typing. I can't figure out how to stop this. Anyone have any ideas? 

A:Stuff happening when typing

A little more information would be useful to get started with. Make and model of computer, desktop or laptop ?
Do these problems only happen in Chrome or do they happen regardless of the application you are running ?  Have you tried using a different browser ?

I am experiencing 2 problems.
The first problem I am experiencing is that sometimes while typing, my letters will backspace by one like I pressed backspace my self. I don't know what caused this,.
The 2nd is that sometimes while I'm browsing through my computer, the start menu will appear as If I have pressed the windows key. Yet I have not done this. I appreciate any help I could get.

Try a different keyboard, please.

Mainly in Quickbooks and Microsoft Access, but I'll try to type in a date and it will type two numbers and freeze up for a couple of seconds before typing the rest. Also, if I try to search for something, it can take up to three minutes whereas my coworker's computer takes only a few seconds.
It's not really a huge deal, but it's annoying to start typing up notes and have it take a minute instead of five seconds.
My memory and CPU usage never get above 50%, so I don't really know what's wrong.

Greetings. Re: Windows 7
     I have Yahoo for a home page and like read the Sports articles. I take part in the commentary and when I type a comment, there is a long delay between when I hit a key and it appears on the screen. Sometimes I can type numberous letters and then one or two will appear after a long delay and the others don't. Sometimes too, there is a stacato effect between typing and appearance. Also I play on-line games via the Gamesville website and it can start off smooth and soon, things become herky-jerky and very very slow and sometimes freeze. Could the two be related to a common cause? Thank You.

When I start typing e-mails, it seems that I need to wait for the PC to catch up with my typing. Sometime it misses letters and I need to go  back and reenter the missing letters. Now, I find that when I go into Task Manager 3 or 4 of the IEXPLOR.EXE are in the very high numbers in the memory (private working set). Sometimes the numbers are into 200k to 600k. Everything else ins in the 20k area. If I end process in each of these I find that I can return to normal typing. Do you think there is a fix for this? Or do I have a virus? 
Thanks for any help you can give me.

A:Slow when typing e-mails on Aol.

One possibility is that a add-on may be keeping the multiple instances of IE from closing.
You can check this by right clicking on the IE icon on the taskbar and choose start without add-ons.
If this turns out to be the case you can turn them off one at a time to determine which is the culprit.
Right click on the taskbar and click on the Tools button, then click on Manage add-ons.
Click on All add-ons under Show, then select the add-ons you want to turn off.
Click on Disable, then click on Close.

A:Cursor jumps around when typing on Dell inspiron

Check your operating system's mouse pointer settings in Control Panel and try lowering the speed under the Pointer Options tab. When set too fast, the mouse may jump all over the desktop at the slightest touch. How to instructions with screenshots here.If you have a wireless mouse, low batteries can result in weak, mixed or no signals that can affect its functionality so start by replacing them. If you are using a ball mouse, remove it and clean the rollers as dirt and gunk will cause erratic behavior. If its an optical mouse, "jumpiness" and "jerky" movements can result if using it on a glossy surface or reflective mouse pad. In some cases using multiple or uneven mouse pads can produce the same results. As a test, try placing it on a piece of newspaper or rubberized pad to see if that resolves the problem.If that does not help, confirm that the mouse works on another machine. It is possible the mouse could be defective or has gone bad. Another thing to try is to use a different mouse or a PS2 adapter if its a USB mouse.If this is an issue on a notebook or laptop, please see Disable Touch Pad of your Laptop; Avoid Erratic Cursor Movement When Typing.Mouse, touchpad, and keyboard problems in WindowsMicrosoft Notebook Optical Mouse TroubleshootingTroubleshooting Optical, Infrared, Laser, Image Sensing MouseStandard mouse TroubleshootingOptical mouse TroubleshootingTroubleshooting Mice, Keyboards & TrackballsTroubleshoot a wireless mouse that does not function correctlyTroubleshoot response failures in wireless keyboard or mouseFAQs: Wireless Mouse

In my work computer (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit) I noticed a strange phenomenon. When I switch keyboard layout to Greek in order to type Greek in Google or elsewhere, it types strange symbols instead of the actual character! This happens in every website when I try to type data in a box or wherever else. If I write the text in Notepad or elsewhere and I copy-paste, it is OK. The problem is I cannot type directly in Greek. The keyboard produces symbols instead of Greek characters! This problem is only in IE 11, in Google Chrome I can type OK.

Please don't tell me to use another browser! Give me a solution. It might be some setting since I don't have this problem at home (see my specs).

Thank you.

So earlier today all of a sudden my pc started to whenever I typed the following symbols : "" '' ~~ ^^
They were typed double. so whenever I typed one of those symbols it came out as two symbols.
which meant I can't do apostrophes and all that good stuff.
This has never happend to me before and I didn't change anything about my pc at all.
I even switched keyboards and it still had the same issue.

A:Keyboard typing double symbols

Sounds like a driver problem. Try this:
Using Only a Mouse

Click the Windows "Start" button, right-click "Computer" and select "Manage" to open the Computer Management window. Select "Device Manager" from the pane on the left. Expand the Keyboards section, right-click on the keyboard you want to repair and choose "Uninstall." Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Restart." When your computer boots up, Windows will detect your keyboard and install the driver.
Hopefully that may solve your problem.

I'm having trouble with my two month old Dell laptop Mouse/Cursor/Typing problem This problem Mouse/Cursor/Typing problem started a month ago and is getting worse I cannot type more than a couple of characters before my cursor disappears I have to click again at the end of the passage to continue As well while I'm browsing the internet usually IE but also using Chrome I will frequently lose my cursor Let's say I'm scrolling using my mouse trackpad or keyboard not clicking though I will suddenly be unable to continue scrolling I need to click somewhere in order to reestablish contact and then I can scroll in a variety of ways again At the moment I lose my cursor the top of the screen goes from blue to grey If I allow it to turn grey and wait a few seconds the grey will flash periodically It's clear to me that the computer is doing something else that is pulling the cursor away from my screen Any ideas

A:Mouse/Cursor/Typing problem

Try updating your mouse drivers by following these steps:
a. Press Windows and x key together and select Device Manager.
b. Locate the touchpad driver.
c. Right click on the Touchpad driver icon and click on “Update Driver software”.
d. Click on “Search automatically for Updated driver software” option.

If the driver update doesn't fix the problem, try FN+F3, this disables/enables the touchpad and it may fix the issue. Hope I was of some help!

As soon as I stop typing, the system goes to sleep after approximately 5 seconds. All my power options is Never Sleep.
Any ideas would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

A:System goes to sleep within seconds I stop typing

Hi, forgive a basic question- are you sure it's going to sleep?
(For example, can you confirm you get a logon prompt on resuming?)

Have you checked your screen saver settings- a blank screen saver might explain what you're seeing.
Control Panel, Appearance and Personalisation, Screensaver

It's always worth search the forum- there are many many threads on sleep issues... enough to, well, send you to sleep..

This turns up from time to time.

The Cursor is jumping around while I type. This is very frustrating. I only just upgraded to Windows 7, it was a clean install, b.c I had been having so many troubles with Vista (it kept crashing).
I seem to have a Microsoft curse.
This is very frustrating - I am seriously questioning whether my next major purchase will involve Windows, as reliability seems to be a problem!

Before going further, would you please let me know if the issue only occurs when trying in Word? What about notepad or other software? What is your mouse model?
Does it have the driver? Did you install any mouse related software?
First, make sure your computer model is supported Windows 7. If so, update the latest mouse and touchpad driver from manufacture's site. Also, go to Mouse Properties
-> Pointers Options tab -> clear the option for Enhance pointer precision.
If the issue persists, I suggest performing a
Clean Boot or Safe Mode to check the result.

Hey guys!

I'm a German guy living in Canada. I like my operating systems like I like my women:

1. User interface in English
2. Keyboard layout in German

Except, women don't have keyboard layouts and I like international women, too. But you get the idea.

Now, in Windows 10, I can only select one language for typing and reading. That makes me a sad panda.

So I went ahead and refused to install the German language pack, leaving the user interface largely in English while getting me my nice German keyboard layout. But yesterday, I found that all those native Windows apps (Weather, Maps) are now in German all of a sudden.

It's no big deal since I obviously speak both languages, but I must say, I've become quite fond of my English user interface and German keyboard layout. Insert obligatory But-Ubuntu-Does-It-Better rant here.

Anybody know a workaround? I'm sure there are more expats here who suddenly face this problem.

A:Keyboard layout: reading and typing language are now one and the same?

No expat but Belgian tech professional here . -.- I have been rackin my brain on this one too.
All i want is my Windows in UK english but my keyboard in azerty.BUT I do also need English,Dutch and French proofing tools which automatically come with their own keyboards.Lot of alt + shift going on here.Help.

I've had the title happening since last night, and I think its related to the replacement mini PCI-E wifi card I installed last night, but then again there was a dmp at 8 am yesterday also, but was still doing the same just normal browsing.

I think I was watching some videos and downloading at same time. the last few days I have had some pop ups from win 10 about having to restart due to drive errors or something like that, so downloaded the kingston ssd checker tool and looks ok.

The BSOD screen says 'page fault in non paged area" for all three times.

The wifi card is an AzureWave Broadcom BCM94352, which I had trouble finding drivers and had to use some from ASUS.

Well here's the gathered info.



A:BSOD while typing a review, downloading torrents, facebook etc

Yup, looks like the Broadcom Wireless driver is the culprit.

Try the Broadcom Wireless Windows 10 driver from Lenovo, see if that works for you.

If that doesn't help, see this thread for a similar/identical problem and solutions:

An attachment below will best explain what i am asking your help for.
Very often[not always] while i am typing a letter in the text of g-mail [i don't know about firefox etc] and i want to add a forgotten letter or so in the text, the next [already typed letter is wiped out and all sequent ones and i have then to type the whole rest of the sentence again.
Any clue how to repair this "evil"?
This does not happen in a word file [wordpad ,WPS writer etc] so it can't be a problem with the keyboard.
Thanks for your help

I got myself a Scorpion K9 two weeks ago and it was working perfectly. Yesterday it just suddenly began to type in wrong letters, such as "X" is now "GX", "K" is now "LD". The number "1" is now my shutdown button.

Things that I've tried:

Pressing FN+NUMLCK.
Removing my keyboard drivers.
Simple restart of the pc.
Sytem restore.

Please can you help me out?

Ever since we upgraded to Windows 10 and have been using Microsoft Edge, on two different computers, we find that especially when we're typing yahoo email, it's like the system can't keep up with our typing. Whole words will be missing or parts of words will be missing. It's getting very annoying, because it means I have to read back through every email to be sure major things haven't been left out. I saw where someone else posted about having this same problem a couple of months ago and I never saw any concrete solution. Anyone have any ideas?

Hi There,
I am on the internet and trying to type in a password and a code.  As I hit each letter and Number, it comes up with another letter or no. 

plus whilst typing suddenly the cursor disappears into another word on the same line or somewhere else on the document.
This is becoming very irritating.

As stated above in the questionnaire, my system was sluggish and I ran my PCMatic scan which would stop running about 40% through the scan. I ran Malwarebytes (free) with no issues found. Removed PCMatic and installed AVG (free) which found some issues and cleaned them up but performace wasn't improved much. My keyboard then began to act quirky by characters not appearing or the cursor jumping around or nothing will happen but the "system busy wheel" pops up for a few seconds before characters appear on the screen.

I came back to you guys because TwinHeadedEagle was so effective at helping me with my desktop 18 mos ago that I was hoping for help.

Thanks, regards and please advise if I can once again get some assistance,
Sandy Lanz
