    wernt sure with it being built to middle east specifications if the languages needed correcting.

    can you post a screen shot so i can see whats happeneing


  • mark hudson Oct 24, 2008

    the first settings youve changes will only change the setting for the keyboard not the time or date, to post a screenshot do a print screen, paste it into paint application then save it as a jpeg.

  • mark hudson Oct 24, 2008

    if the " and the @ key are opposite then go back to the regional settings to make sure all are set to the uk. when those 2 are opposite it means your set to the us keyboard. that will need removing and the uk adding

From Service Pack 3 with Microsoft office 2007, how do i change my operating system to MS office 2007?


Hi, there!
As I know, MS office is a software to use for office works such as typing document, calculate and basic office database. MS Office software is NOT an operating system. You can not change you operating system to MS Office 2007. I think you meant is: Install Service Pack 3 of Microsoft Office 2007 on your computer. To do so, you first need the Microsoft Office 2007 software on your computer or you need MS Office 2007 disk. The Service Pack 3 of MS Office 2007 is the update only not the actual software to use.

Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.
