I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I changed the OS language to English, but Dell updates are still showing up in Japanese. Help?

A:Changed Windows 10 OS Language to English from Japanese But Dell Updates Still in Japanese?

Where did you buy the computer?  Did it come with Japanese as default?  If you bought it in Japan its possible they installed the Japanese language only versions of the Dell programs and you would be stuck with them.  You could go to the support page for your computer and download the English versions if there are any.

I am using a Windows XP system and I've had a problem with my ime files, my default language is chinese on my laptop, and I used to be able to use Japanese as well. But it stopped becoming available. I tried to copy and paste an IME folder from my friends computer, then realised she used it in Russian, and now some of my programs like my software for downloads, show text in Russian or just jibberish. When I go to add Japanese language file it does not show the IME option only shows an option for American or Chinese keyboard, none of which will even work/appear in the language bar as an option.
Will I need the Windows XP CD to fix this problem? Or is there a file I can download to have the Japanese IME option, so I can change between Chinese and Japanese keyboard.

Thank you so much for your time. I'm not sure what other information I can post about the problem that will be useful.
 

A:language options - japanese IME does not show, cannot add Japanese keyboard

You would need to change the Unicode to Japanese in the third tab in Regional and Language. Japanese doesn't figure in my list under the first tab either but if you change the Unicode and restart, you may find it on your XP CD and be able to add it in.

I tried installing Japanese language support onto my Windows XP SP 3, but upon restarting (as it prompted me to do), I can't log into Windows. I select my user name, it says "Loading personal settings..." but then it dumps me back on to the log in screen, allowing me to re-click my name to the same effect.

I didn't have a password set, as it is my home computer. I just had it set to the log in screen since I built the machine, just for me to click on my user name.

I tried doing safe mode and logging into the administrator, but the same thing happens.

I tried reverting back to the "last good configuration" at the menu that comes after spamming F8, but that didn't change anything.

Debug dumps me at the same menu.

I have no idea what to do. Help, please!

EDIT: I have the Windows XP SP 2 disc, which is how I was able to log in. However, I don't have the password or registration key handy.

EDIT 2: I tried installing/fixing windows, but it didn't work (gave an error saying the signature was invalid, error 800b0100, setup log files should contain more information). I can get to the c:\ command line. From there, is there any way to initiate a system restore to previous settings, or change the registry to skip the log in screen?

My buddy got a Mac laptop a little over a year ago and I was envious to note that it was innately capable of allowing him to input in Japanese in any program (most importantly, word processing). We're both students of the language, and before that, have had to install seperate programs to do word processing. I am now living in Japan, and bought a new computer shortly before I left (last summer) with Windows XP. If I'm not mistaken (and I may be), my friend had XP with MS Office (I only have the Works suite). He said he had to go somewhere to activate that function, but I haven't been able to find it for the life of me. He showed me once (on his computer), and I don't recall being able to find it on mine. I'm going to ask him again too, but in case he can't help me, which is very possible, I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to activate foreign language ability in XP. I can read Japanese fonts just fine, but it would be really nice to be able to type in them too. Also, a former co-worker once told me he found a program online that let him enter Japanese text at any time on his computer (even labeling files and such), but he could have been full of it. Anyway, is there any hope for me? Thanks a lot for any help!

Hiya

Go to Control Panel | Regional and Language Options. Languages tab. Details. Click Add. Choose tha language you want.

You may need your Windows disk.

After its all done, you should be able to change the layout, just change it using the EN icon that should be near your clock.

Also, note this:

For right-to-left and East Asian languages select Start, Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, the Languages tab, and then select the desired check box under Supplemental language support.

i'm using windows XP Professional

So years ago i have installed the japanese ime but back then i had no use for it except type some weird things.

Now i need it more then ever and the language bar just won't show up no matter what i do and the ime is acting weird.

Breaking it down for you
1 - I have installed all east asian files to computer already

2 - I go to control Panel -> Regional and language options -> languages -> text service and input language and japanese is on there

3 - Apparently the language bar button in preference is grayed out so i can't click it

4 - Searched around the web for a solution but none works

5 - So i can't find the language bar to change the language to japanese, if i use shortcuts to change languages then what happens is if i type something it switches back to english automatically
(use shortcut like ctrl+shift+key or something, switches the language to japanese, i open notepad but when i type it goes to english and Hiragana is main setting not direct input so it can't be english)

Anyone got solution?
I'm thinking maybe a partition restore would help but i don't know.
Thanks

Okay, I've used Japanese language support for IE before, and it worked fine. Recently, I reformated my hard drive and reinstalled windows. I've done all the updates and such, but now when I go to Windows update to download Japanese language support, it won't install! I tried clearing my temporary files and downloading it again, but it still fails to install! It's getting very frustrating! (especially since it takes a while to download with dial up) and I really need the support to view my Japanese websites and forums.

Hi all,

I have searched all over the net for a solution and can't find one. First, a description of the problem:
The Language Bar is showing up fine. I can use Chinese and alternative English keyboard layouts without any problems. However, I can't use Japanese at all. It is not even shown as an option when I click the button to change languages. Furthermore, keyboard shortcuts don't work.

I got it to show the Japanese option when I "restored" the Language Bar, right clicked it, and turned it vertical, but after turning it back to horizontal, the option disappeared. Desperate to get it back, I turned it back to vertical. It's no longer there either way!

I heard that a Windows Vista Update removed some guy's Japanese language support completely. He fixed it with System Restore. But I'm using Windows XP Pro and there's so many updates I don't know when to restore to and I don't want to restore.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I recently installed Microsoft IME for Japanese so I could type in it. I went to go make a document in word, but I noticed it would only type in a box that popped up in the upper left corner of my screen and not in the actual word document. I found this very strange because it didn't do that on my other hard drive. Once I finished typing a word out and pressed enter it showed up in word, but when I try to type the next word that box disappears and I can longer see what I'm typing. However, I am still typing because I will type and a word, press enter, and then the word shows up word again, but I can't visually see what I am typing UNLESS I start a new line by pressing Enter. I've looked all over google and I have found nothing on this. Please help!! It is so annoying, I just want to be able to see what I am typing letter by letter, just like how I was while typing this forum.

Hello,
I just bought a new laptop (ASUS K53E). I'm currently in Japan and bought laptop here. I'm stuck at the set up page where I have to choose the region and languages. I would prefer English as main language, but I'm afraid I will have problems later with Japanese keyboard, I use both English and Japanese in daily life. There are two things, language and keyboard, that I can choose the language for. And the physical keyboard is Japanese (qwerty with additional buttons).
Also can I add more languages later on? If I plan to add one more language which keyboard is best for initial set up?

Would be grateful for any tips, its a first time I bought laptop outside of Europe.

A:choosing a language for a new laptop English and Japanese

Be sure to make your Recovery Disks and preserve the Recovery partition if you reinstall so that you can revert to the state you received the computer and hopefully make these Setup choices again if needed in the future.

Otherwise languages are only interchangeable when you have Ultimate which provides all of the language packs via optional Windows Updates.

However reinstall with another language is sometimes possible depending upon the region of your license even though the license is language-specific. The choices you have now should also be available by finding an installer for that language to clean reinstall, then activate with the Product Key on COA sticker. However you may have to try it to find out for sure, so be sure to preserve your factory Recovery options and and Win7 backup image of your install after setup.

I recently sent my computer in for a replacement hard drive. They installed Chinese input in my language bar (I assume because it's a Taiwanese company). I have tried removing it from Regional and Language Settings, but even when it's not listed in the keyboards section, it keeps showing up in the language bar. Sometimes when I restart it disappears, and sometimes it reappears in the keyboards and the language bar. It's really obnoxious.

Additionally, I often use Japanese input in the language bar (so I don't want to just remove the language bar entirely), but when it's in Half-Width Alphanumeric (English character) mode, it still uses a Japanese keyboard layout (as in ' becomes :, ) becomes (, etc.) . Is there any way to fix this? I never had this problem in XP.

I am having some issues with the IME support for Japanese language in Windows XP, I have been googling and havn't found a similar problem anywhere so perhaps i am doing something stupid without realizing.

Basically after following all steps for installing the Japanese IME support the language bar will not display buttons which it should be. The steps I have followed are:
Installed East Asian language files
Added "Microsoft IME Standard 2002 ver. 8.1." as a keyboard input
Displayed the language bar, and with the text editor I wish to use active, chose Japanese (on the language bar)
Couldn't get any further because the only buttons which appear are "Kana" and "CAPS" rather than the full range of options I have seen elsewhere

Here is a screenshot of my language bar after selecting Japanese, my regional and language options, and my text services and input languages menus.

After said steps supposedly my language bar should look like: (taken from windows support website)
I remember having this working on my previous computer with no drama, if anyone has any suggestions or ideas it would be great.

Anyway thanks for any help you can provide.

I have a copule of unique problems that I feel would be helpful. I do not have the Floppy Disc Drive, (as far as I can tell the Bios Update file can only be installed from this floppy drive). I thought that maybe the problem was the BIOS version was in Japanese causing Windows to install in Japanese. I tried to install a Bios Upgrade downloaded from Toshiba but could not get it to install without the Floppy disc drive.

Does anyone have any ideas how I could get this computer to allow me to install an english language operating system?

Please provide any ideas, I am getting desparate for help and would love to get this laptop up and running in a language I can read.

Hi
Somehow when I load Windowsupdate.com the website loads in Japanese text.

I have checked all the local options on windows control panel and they all say english.

I think that there is an option you can change on the website but as I can read an of it I am having a few problems.

Luckily it doesn't happen anywhere else.

This is almost as annoying as when my cell phone language got changed into Arabic !

Can anybody help ?

If you're viewing the site in Internet Explorer (and you should be), click view, encoding, and make sure 'Western European' is checked.
