Question about HP OmniBook Vt6200 Notebook

English language support on laptop with German Keyboard

I have a HP vt6200 Omnibook laptop with German Keyboard. Recently my internal harddisk crashed and I replaced with a new IDE disk. I installed Windows XP (English US) afresh. Also installed the necessary drivers downloaded from HP site. Now the german keyboard is not working. It types multiple characters & behaves erratically. When I connect an external US English Keyboard, it works perfect. I tried changing the language/keyboard settings. It didn’t work.

I donot want to use German anymore on that laptop. All I want to use is only English. Now I am unable to use the laptop keyboard at all. Pls help !

The easiest solution will be to locate a replacement laptop keyboard for that model. they arent hard to replace and usually cost between $40 and $80. I would web search HP Spare parts Third party is usually cheaper. Keyboards are pretty common replacements on laptops due to wear an tear. Most are replaced using a small phillips screwdriver. Its likley you can find removal instructions on the web as well (if they dont come packaged with the keyboard.

My dell laptop type wrong letter


Hi,
The standard keyboard language and widely used setting is "ENGLISH (US)"
Set the Keyboard layout to English US so that you have standard keys for symbols etc. like @ sign with SHIFT+2 etc.

The keyboard layout / Language of your PC may have been different (other than English US), so follow these steps to select the International keyboard layout:

- Go to Control Panel - Regional and Language settings
- On the Keyboards and Language tab, click Change keyboards.
- Click Add.
- Expand the language that you want. For example, English (United States).
- Expand Keyboard list, select the United States-International check box, and then click OK.
- In the Default input language list, click Language name - United States-International (where Language name is the language that you selected in step 4), and then click OK two times.
- In the Regional and Language Options dialog box, click OK.

The above steps would change the Keyboard Layout settings to 'English US' and you would be able to type @ sign with SHIFT+2

By mistake the language has been changed, how do I change the language of Garmin back to english?


  • On the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP press TOOLS (the spanner symbol at the bottom right corner)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (The blue symbol) on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips symbol)
  • There are 3 items on this screen; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
  • To change the voice language to English press VOICE and select an English speaking voice
  • To change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English, or American English if you're in the USA
If the text language is already in German you probably won't know which is voice, text and keyboard. The German word for German is Deutch so when you see this beside one of the items you'll know this is the one to change the text language. This should solve your problem.

Check the Language setting of your Keyboard in CONTROL PANEL. It needs to be set into "ENGLISH" as a default. Or other way, go to "SYSTEM RESTORE" from the previous date that it was working okay. Thank you.

Keyboard problems


Is the keyboard flexible cable the same pin as the original keyboard? If yes and you are sure the new keyboard is okay, then you can change the language to the preferred language e.g US English, change its position to the first and make it referred. Its should work. You can also check online if there is any keyboard or input driver which when installed can be of help.

Dark screen, no backlight


I am sure that your BACKLIGHT is dead...Have someone or a tech take a look at it. The problem can be the backlight or the inverter itself... But most likely it's the backlight that goes out. You might be better of getting the LCD screen replace... Unless you find the backlight for that laptop model...

But first, play around with the BRIGHTNESS settings, make sure it's not on VERY LOW...

Hi there.
while you have the external monitor plugged in and you have the display on that monitor, hold down Fn and look for a F key which has a TV/monitor icon on it and hit that key (you may have to hit this once or twice) this is whats called the keyboard toggle switch, if your laptop monitor comes on then the problem is sorted and you can disconnect the external monitor.
Post back with the results please

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
