Complaint - Y40 in Canada - French Keyboard

Q: Complaint - Y40 in Canada - French Keyboard

Hi everyone, I just received my Y40 and found out that it came with a French keyboard. Could anyone verify that this is an anomaly or does everyone get French keyboards. It makes no sense at all to automatically sell french keyboards to Canada when most people do not speak french. I understand they need to offer the optionality, but they shouldn't automatically assume that people want french keyboards. This is very frustrating as the Lenovo website shows the US version of the keyboard. I'm talking to support and trying to figure out what can be done. If anyone has any success stories that they can share on rectifying the situation, please do share to help all of us fellow Canadians out. Thank you for all of your help!

Preferred Solution: Complaint - Y40 in Canada - French Keyboard

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So no one else has this issue with the Y40? Maybe I just got the wrong one then?

Issue since moving from IE9 to IE11 in the office

I've changed the Language Preference on IE11 to add both of them, English by default
Microsoft Office is already set to use both language

Although using Internet Explorer, we are having an issue where it only seem to spell check one language, giving errors when typing words in the other language.

Read on the internet some people that added both language in the keyboard layout, but that's not an interesting solution because first the French keyboard layout does all the English keys and second people tend to accidentaly switch language while typing
using shortcut or whatever

Any help regarding this issue would be appreciated

I have a laptop Asus R301L which means that I don't have a numeric keyboard and the keyboard is a German one. How can I type the French ? ? I can't use the ASCII code because I don't have a numeric keyboard and there is no shortcut on my keyboard. Any idea?

Many thanks.

I have here a Microsoft Internet Keyboard (French version) that supports french layout. I set the keyboard to:

French(Canada) - French
--Canadian French
--Canadian Multilingual Standard

Regardless of the setup I use, not all the keys on the keyboard output properly. If I use the ^ with vowels the put the accent above, however when doing the characters on the ~ and 1-9 keys I don't get the appropriate characters.

I've tried installing the MS Intellitype Pro software to no avail. It worked before the computer was formatted and XP put back on it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

TY Colzie

P.s I searched the forums and could not find a thread with a similar theme hence this thread admin.

A:keyboard in French

Hi colzie

Rather than going straight to the keyboard applet in Control Panel, try just the "Regional and Language Options" applet:

Start/Control Panel/Regional and Language Options/Languages tab/Details/Settings ... "Add" -- and choose the French options you prefer for "Input Language" (there are six different French versions to choose from), and choose French also for your "Keyboard layout/IME".

See if that does it
Best of luck

Hi There,
I have seen this issue for a while. I have my keyboard setting setup as English US. However from time to time I see it default to Canada English. That means I get the ?? when I type.

So this has been happening on and off since I upgraded to Vista from XP. It's only been going on in Fire Fox. When I type somewhere, this text box for example, sometimes a small letter E with a downhill accent pops up instead of the ' key. After restarting Fire Fox the problem is fixed. Any ideas what this may be?

I can not change my keyboard from French Canadian to US. I tried the usual things; pressing CTRL+ALT and using the keyboard icon on the taskbar, and even though it says it is on the US keyboard, it is still French Canadian. Then I removed my other keyboard options from the control panel so it says I only have the US keyboard available, but it is still French Canadian. I have no idea where the apostrophe is on this keyboard, and it is driving me crazy.

Is there an easy way for me to type in French, including accents on a USA keyboard, other than memorizing the alt codes?

A:Type French easily on USA keyboard?

You could make yourself a character store (e.g. on a notepad) from the character map that you find in All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access. Then you copy the characters from there and paste it into the text. That is not very convenient either, but gets the job done for the occasional email or so. The notpad shortcut you can pin to the taskbar for easy access.

But if you need it frequently, I would get a French keyboard and make the appropriate settings (which you can easily switch back and forth). E.g. I am right now typing from a German keyboard - in Florida.

Help please! I just installed Service Pack 2 and lost the configuration on my French Canadian keyboard. I opened the Control Panel, then Regional properties, gave French Canadian as the input language by default with the addition of British English as a second possibility. When I wanted to change the keyboard setting to look like my FC keyboard I was given the choice of French Canadian Legacy or French Canadian Multilingual keyboards. The keyboard I really want allows for an accented capital E automatically. I am not quite sure which it is nor do I know of any site that shows it specifically. On the keyboard layout I am looking for the @ symbol is attained by 2 plus altcar. There are also more dead keys than on the standard French keyboard which is what I get.
I cannot seem to be able to reconfigure to have the FC keyboard.

My sytem is Windows XP.

Hello all, I've recently purchased this laptop (Just out of best buy direct return policy) and It has remained docked at my desk since.  

I used the keyboard briefly during setup, but otherwise have been using my mechanical - well the other day I decided to use it and the backspace key popped up. Saw that the clips on the key itself were broken on one side.

I don't want to have to wait without my computer in hopes that this may be covered by warranty repair if I send it in, but I cannot find this keyboard anywhere but Ebay.

I would purchase it from ebay but the only sellers are located in hong kong and it would take quite a while and not be an assured fit.

Any ideas? Part number, etc? Basically I would just buy a new keyboard and take the backspace key off of it. 

I saw that theres a website for laptop replacement keys, but this particular model isn't listed. Is this keyboard shared with other models, just with either no backlight or with white text instead of red? I would accept a different kind of key if its the right size.

Thanks, sorry for the wall of text. Just wanting to get my keyboard back to new :-(

Hello everyone,

Recently I bought a new computer to my wife, and it has French Windows 7 x64 bit preinstalled on it. As she speaks French/Russian I added a Russian layout in Windows (please note that originally Windows 7 came as French edition).

Now, when she visits Le Monde.fr : Actualit?s ? la Une web site the special characters are not properly shown in IE8. For example, in words, the letter ? becomes й etc.

If she runs Google Chrome browser, everything is working just fine. However, she dislikes Chrome, so I am forced to solve the problem with IE8.

If I choose in IE8 a Western Europe locale I can see proper characters in words, but! I don't want to choose locale each time there is a bug with IE8!

How can I solve the issue?

Please help. Merci.

A:Windows 7 French edition: IE8 can't "see" french pages

You just need to set your language options in IE in your preferred order... and if you are going to use cyrillics at all you must have the far eastern language fonts too (as odd as that sounds... d'accord/harosho?)...

Hello KainOcelot and welcome to TSF,

You have more than one infection here and we will need to do this in stages.

Download Ewido Security Suite at http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ and install it. Update to the newest definitions. Do NOT run it yet.

Please download nailfix at http://users.pandora.be/bluepatchy/nailfix.zip (for Windows XP). Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.

Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work.

Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on nailfix.bat. Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Next run a full scan in Ewido. Post the log from the Ewido scan here.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each the following entry and hit 'Fix checked' if it still exists:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe

Close all open windows except for HijackThis and click Fix Checked.

Restart your computer in normal mode.

  I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

My Pavillion 27" al-in-one stopped turning on (completely dead) at the end of October.  The HP online help took about 3 hours (opening the computer which was not easy since that was an all-in-one, closing, reopening etc..). That did not work. So HP send me a box to ship my computer for repair under warranty. I shipped it October 30th.The shipping of my computer back to me according to my service order is January 5th ( it is still not sure). I called the service center 2 or 3 times and according to them , they dont have the part. An HP computer service center that does not have an HP part does not make sense. Taking 2 months to fix a computer might be allright for a mechanic shop but not for an HP Service Center. I asked for another computer but they cannot do that. The supervisor (or somebody that played the role of supervisor) told me directly that there is NOTHING I CAN DO except to wait. This was the last HP I am buying.

Hello everyone! I've been digging/reading and have seen that the 5th gen X1C seems to be upgradeable to an m.2 nvme drive if I purchase it with the 128GB SATA3 option, however the answers I've seen are generally located in the US/EU. As I'm located in Canada and wanted to really make sure before ordering (off the EPP friends and family site no less), can someone please confirm?  The part number being given is 20HRCTO1WW (i7, 16gb RAM, wqhd screen with the WWAN card). I've spoken with 3 support chat people who have given varied answers, but their general consensus is that if I order the laptop with the SATA3 drive, it won't even come with the m.2 slot. I'm also on the fence between the i5-7300U and the i7-7600U, and have been reading about the poor-ish thermal performance of the thinner body...  Just don't have a definitive answer so if you guys can sway me one way or the other (about $200 difference), that'd be great  Thanks!

Hello i moved to Canada around a month ago and im wanting to use my P.C over here but im not sure if i have to go buy a new PSU or can i just get a new power cable for it so it has the right plug end for over here? I have a 550w PSU with input voltage: 115v AC or 230v AC.. Can anyone help me on this?


A:will my psu work in Canada?

It should work fine as long as you set the input voltage switch to 115V AC.

Depending on where you moved from it may already be set to 115V and the only thing you'll need is a different power cable to fit our electrical sockets. Those can be picked up at any computer store.
