Computer is locked in the green symbols of the keyboard


TO SHUT OFF the green keys, you need to disable the multiligual or French keyboard layouts. For Windows 7:

Click CONTROL PANEL
click CLOCK, LANGUAGE, AND REGION

under REGION AND LANGUAGE
click CHANGE KEYBOARDS... etc.

click KEYBOARDS AND LANGUAGES
click CHANGE KEYBOARDS

.......for example, by clicking on a keyboard name (ie. US or and UNITED KINGDOM for example) and then clicking PROPERTIES to the rtight, you can see the actual key layout.......

On the list of installed languages, click anything multiligual or French, and then click REMOVE found on the right-hand column

click APPLY
click OK
Then you've removed the French.

Otherwise you have to click the LEFT ALT key and then the LEFT SHIFT key to swich back and forth between the green keys and the white keys.
