Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Language bar In the help window for the Language bar it shows two different buttons: the input language button and the keyboard layout button. On my Language bar, though, there is only the input language button. What I'm trying to do is write in Hangul (Korean characters), but when I change the input language button from English to Korean the keyboard still prints the Roman characters. The solution (from what I've read in the help window) is to change the keyboard layout button to Korean as well. The problem is my Language bar does not show the keyboard layout button, and I cannot find instructions on how to make it appear or to write in Hangul. Help??????? Thanks!

The language packs are downloads through windows update. Click on the start button and there should be a link to windows update there. When windows update comes up on the screen it will automatically scan your system, when it finishes it will say something like new updates available and give two choices...express or custom update. Click on custom and it will show you optional updates for you to download, besides the Chineses language pack, there are many others as well as hardware updates for your metwork cards, video card, modem, touchpad...etc. Windows will download and install all these updates for you and then they will be available to you to use.

Change your keyboard layout

You can customize your keyboard for a specific language or format by changing the keyboard layout. The layout controls which characters appear on the screen when you press the keys on your keyboard. Some input languages have several keyboard layouts; others have only one. For example, you can change your keyboard layout from the English QWERTY format to the English Dvorak format. After you change the layout, the characters on your screen might not correspond to the characters on your keyboard keys.

Before you can change the keyboard layout, you must add the input language and keyboard layout that you want to use to Windows. For more information, see Add an input language.

I need to install or downloads Arabic language into my computer languages so I can type using Arabic keyboard thank you very much sam


Setting Up Arabic in Windows XP

Adding the Language to Windows

The following instructions will help you to set up your keyboard layout for Arabic that matches the DataCal Keyboard Labels.

Step 1. Install Supplemental Language Support
The Arabic language requires that you install Supplemental Language Support before you can set it up in Windows.
  1. Select the Start button in the lower left corner of the Desktop.
  2. Select the Control Panel (or, if you are using the Windows Classic Setting, select Settings > Control Panel).
  3. In the Control Panel, double-click the Regional and Language Options item.
  4. In the Regional and Languages dialog box, click on the Languages tab. In the Supplemental language support section, click on the Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai) option (see Figure below).
  5. Click on the Apply button in the lower right corner of the dialog box and then click on the OK button. You may be prompted to insert your Windows install CD into the CD drive.

89ff32e.gif
Step 2. Add Language to Windows
  1. In the Control Panel, double-click the Regional and Language Options item.
  2. In the Regional and Languages dialog box, click on the Languages tab.
1. Click on the Details button in the Text services and input languages section of the Language tab to open the Text Services and Input Languages dialog box.

08db84d.gif
2. To add a language, click the Add button in the Installed services section to open the Add Input Language dialog box.

3. Click on the arrow to the right of the selector in the Input language selector and scroll to Arabic.


dd51530.gif
4. The Keyboard Layout/IME should default to the Arabic keyboard layout. If it does not, click on the arrow to the right of the selector in the Keyboard layout/IME selector and scroll to the Arabic keyboard layout. Note that there often are different keyboard layouts for a language. You should select the language and keyboard layout that matches the DataCal Keytop Label.

5. After you select the language and keyboard layout, click on the OK button to close the Add input language dialog box.

6. When you return to the Text services and input languages dialog box, you will see the new input language and keyboard layout included in the Installed Services box.

7. Click on the Apply button to apply the changes to the new layout. Note that each language features a small blue box in the Installed services section with 2 letters that indicates the language. English is designated as EN.


196bdcc.gif
  1. If you do not wish to add any additional languages or layouts, you can click on OK to close the Text services and input languages dialog box. When you return to the Windows Desktop, you can see the language bar in the lower right corner of the Desktop.
  2. To change the language and keyboard layout, click on the two-letter language selector box with the left mouse button to open the language selector menu.
  3. Click on the language that you wish to use in the language selector pop up menu.
The language you select will remain in effect in active Windows application until you select a different language. For example, if you select the Arabic language and keyboard layout in Microsoft Excel and English in Microsoft Word, each application will use that keyboard layout until you exit the application or you select a different language.

Default Keyboard Layout

If you wish to make a particular keyboard layout the default Windows layout (i.e., to be used in all Windows applications), open the Text services and input languages dialog box.
Select the desired keyboard layout to be the default in the Default input language section of the dialog box.

I hope it helps.

All the best.
