Cannot change my keyboard layout, blank list

Q: Cannot change my keyboard layout, blank list

Hi all,

Today I started up my laptop to make my homework. So I tried to enter an "a with umlaut"(SHIFT+' then a) but it would not work.
So I checked my keyboard input settings and it is looking like in the attachments.

Does anyone know how I could fix this?

Preferred Solution: Cannot change my keyboard layout, blank list

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.)

A: Cannot change my keyboard layout, blank list

It should download the Keyboard Layout you choose, until then it will be blank. Hit "Add Language" and this will pop up:

Language - Add or Remove in Windows 8

Then it will download the language pack and keyboard layout. Until then, it won't reside on your PC, they don't keep the languages you are not using on hand anymore.

Wondered if anyone can help with this issue.

The comapny I work for has a requirement that the # symbol be at the end of all user login passwords. On one terminal however, when you get to the login screen, entering "password#" returns a password eror, while "password?" lets you in.

First thing I did was to check regional settings and keyboard layout were all set to UK, not US, then reset the password on the server to make sure the # symbol and not the ? symbol was being used.

After both of these I still need to add the ? symbol, however as soon as you login to windows, in any input screen the symbols are on the correct keys, it's only pre-login that they seem to have switched.

Hi All,  I bought a new HP 15-ba054ng from an online reseller.

It's really weird. And i really don't know what causes this. Here's the thing. I have ONLY ONE language and only ONE keyboard layout in settings. Few times happens, that i get US layout of keyboard with z y and switched..etc..but ONLY on random application. example i'm using skype and for no apparent reason i get layout switch. but when i go to start and type in search,, there it's normal. same thing happens in some mmorpg games. so in game it's all wrong at random point it switches itself. in windows is normal though. and in word and everyhere..only thing to do is to restart application or game..and it's ok again.

wth? does anyone have any idea?

Hi you all.
I'm having a problem here that's driving me crazy..
The option "Add keyboard layout" suddenly is unavailable.. I'm from Argentina, (that's my excuse for bad grammar) and my keyboard uses the locale es-es.

My SO, as the thread title says, is Windows Ultimate x32.

I recently installed the english language pack from windows update, hoping that some keyboards layouts would show up, but nothing happened..

I also tried this. I downloaded the lp.cab Spanish package and installed it from the command line as administrator. Nothing changed..

The following are two images from the Region/Language section in control panel.
In the first one, in Input Language it says "Unable to read configuration" (Circled in red)
The second one shows that when I click in 'Add Input Language' nothing shows up..

I'm hoping someone could help me on this one.,
I need to do some reports for college, and I can't use the spanish special characters..

Thanks in advance..

PS: System Restore is not enabled.

I have a DELL Insprion 2400 with Windows XP Office Edition insalled (I know its so old lol). So I was fooling around, trying to make the Japanese carhters show on my computer and messed around and changed the keyboard layout to Japanese from English. I restarted the computer when I tired to enter my password on the Welcome logon screen it wouldn't accept it. I don't have the windows software CD to try to do a system restore and I'm not sure if you can even do a system rstore if you can't logon. I've tried just about everything that I could think of and nothing has worked. At this point I dont care if I losse everything on the computer I just need it to work. Could someone please help me or at least point me in the right direction to get this issue solved. How can I fix this???

Hi, I have a Lenovo Flex 2 14 which came with a British keyboard but I noticed you can take off the keyboard and swap it out for another one - you can find backlit versions, or a version with a different layout. I got a keyboard for it with Japanese hiragana on it, but the laptop doesn't seem to recognise any of the extra keys this keyboard comes with which have key codes not used by other languages. These keys include: | -? \ ??????the ????, ???? and ???? toggleI would have assumed this was to do with the fact that these are keys from a 106/109 key layout as opposed to the standard 102 key, so I replaced the keyboard driver with Microsoft's 106/109 key keyboard driver, but that hasn't had any effect - it still can't see these keys being pressed. The ??/?? ?? key works because it uses the same key code as the tilde on other keyboards, but that's all. My hypothesis for why this might not be possible to fix is that the ribbon connection between the keyboard and the motherboard could only support 102-key layouts in Europe, and therefore the only way to be able to use these extra input conversion keys without a different motherboard altogether would be to use an external USB keyboard. I may have just made up what I said about the motherboard though, so does anyone know if there's a driver I can use to solve this problem and be able to use the extra keys? I can't just use a key mapper like KeyTweak ...

So I purchased a Lenovo X1 Yoga in Japan and I absolutely hate Japanese keyboard layouts (anyone that has used one after using a US keyboard knows what I mean - a space bar that is smaller than the enter key, poor placement of certain keys, specifically ", ', and @. There is just no logic behind any of it and honestly, there is no need. One can easily type in Japanese, just fine, with a standard US English layout keyboard. Sorry, I guess I didn't need to state that, but perhaps it will help with SEO to ensure someone finds this page when searching for those keywords.  Anyway, I finally found the information I needed to swap this keyboard out (and throw it in the trash), even though Lenovo support in Japan basically told me it's not possible. It does seem like a huge undertaking though (as you basically have to dismantle the entire laptop to get the keyboard out). But it does seem as though the English keyboards are compatible with all X1 Yoga laptops (even my Japanese X1 Yoga). The Lenovo customer service staff told me to get FRU PN: 00JT864 (00JT864 N KBD,US,LB,screw,CHY,Backlit), which is the US English replacement keyboard. It's also specified on the PDF document  on this page (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/PD103738 ) for the 20FR and 20FQ. Scroll half way down and you will see it.  However, I am having trouble finding the keyboard from a seller in Asia, with the same FRU #. When searching for 00JT864, the only source I can...

I have a Dell M1330 Laptop that has served me quite well for several years. I just replaced the keyboard the other day and everything is working fine, except that the new keyboard has a slightly different layout than the old keyboard did. For example, with the new keyboard all the F1, F2, F3, etc.. keys have function secondaries on them like multimedia, brightness, antennae toggle, and so on. My old keyboard didnt have most of these and so when I attempt to use them on the new keyboard they simply do not work. In fact when I use function keys as if I still had my old keyboard installed the functions work, which means it is the software interpretation of the keys that I need to change. Does anybody know how I can fix this so that the keys of the new keyboard and functions match what the keys actually say?

Another thing to add is that some of the new function keys on the new laptop such as antennae toggle were not on my last keyboard at all because they are softkeys on the case of my computer, and I am not sure a function like that would be able to be added to the keyboard mapping at all, but I'm not sure.

Also, I would prefer to not install third party software to accomplish this, even if it means I need to delve into the registry manually. Can anybody help??

hey guys,

so, the pc that i have is this one: HP Pavilion Elite HPE-235f Desktop PC Product Specifications | HP? Support. Now, the motherboard recently died on it, so i was considering replacing it with this board instead: MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3 AMD 890GX 5 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

However, I see no problems with replacing the board itself, but the question i have pertains to the case itself. In that particular case, the motherboard is actually mounted on the left side, so, the pcie slots are currently sitting ABOVE the processor, the ram, and the main fan. Now my question is this: Can I modify that case so that the board sits like the usual matx board that i have in my other hp pc, which is on the right? So basically, i want to make the case useable, but move the board from the left wall to the right wall with minimal effort, if possible?

So this is really frustrating me.

I usually use the "United States - International" keyboard layout, since I like being able to do accents and use the Alt-GR key. However recently it has been causing problems and I'm not sure why.

One of the biggest examples is the ' key, usually if I press it and then a space it types either ' or ", depending on if I press shift or not. Well, in Firefox, I have to keep pressing the key about 4 times before it finally types two 's and I have to erase one. Pressing space does nothing. And if I press shift+6, it types "^^", as in, the character twice.

I could not figure out what was causing this, so I switched the layout back to US, and it works fine. But I simply cannot use US-International without it doing weird stuff. I tried "sfc /scannow", it found some problems and fixed them, but it's STILL doing the same thing.

Additionally, it appears something else weird is going on as when I try to use ALT codes, they don't do what they're supposed to... like most of them make a heart (♥) instead of what they SHOULD be doing.

I even tried making a custom keyboard layout, opening the normal US International on a completely different computer, then saving it and installing it on here, and it STILL does what I described above.

Has anyone else had a problem like this? I'd really like to get it fixed as without a working keyboard it's kinda hard to do my everyday business...

Hey all,

Currently I've got my laptop computer connected to my router via Ethernet, my router is then connected to my modem. I use my laptop as a desktop replacement and it's the only system I've got.

The place that I live in, my apartment is not huge by any means however I want to move my desk to another spot in my apartment. However the issue is where I want to move it, there's no Telephone port to connect my modem and I would have to leave my modem and router possibly at my current location. So essentially the way I'm seeing this is I will be able to move my desk however I'll have to connect to my router wirelessly now as opposed to always having it connected via ethernet.

Is it possible to still configure everything on the router and modem and benefit from the Internet by just a wireless connection ? I thought I read somewhere that you need at least one computer connected via Ethernet at all times in order for stuff to work in your network.

Thanks hope my question is clear enough !


PS : Please see the pics for more details hopefully I'm clear in what I want to try and accomplish.

I welcome all your suggestions !

Hi all, I'm having a major stress. I don't know why it's happened but my keyboard has gone from UK layout to US (the @ and " positions have swapped as have |#|).
