Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

What desktop system are you asking about, and is it new?

Name the desktop system by its maker (e.g. HP, or Dell, etc.) and its model number or at least its model line name.

Let me know - I think I have a solution for the problem, but I have to go by what maker name your desktop is and its model line or model name, please.

WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY FOR THE PRODUCT YOU PEOPLE SELL
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 1 year ago

OK. The keyboard may have been set to a foreign country's keyboard type. That would make it type the wrong letters.

Have you logged in to Windows yet? If so, I will direct you how to correct the situation - using your mouse only.

with much difficulty,also i tried another keyboard,same problem jerry
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 1 year ago

OK.

Go to Control Panel.

Then go to

Region

(switch to View mode for Large Icons, if needed, to find the Region)

Then select US under the Location tab, of course, and also on the Administrative tab, select

Change System Locale

if it is not already set to English (United States) and set it to that.

And click on OK to save the changed setting.

See if that helps with the keyboard and its keys and how they look when you type!

Let me know how it goes, and rate my answer if it goes well, please. Thanks.

on the new computor i sent***@******.***,also where is the control panel on this com. jerry
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 1 year ago

...first, the Start button

then, Control Panel .....should be there in the menu that comes up when you click or tap on the Start button (usually at the lower left of the screen, after logging in to Windows.)

i dont think you guys can fix this and i dont intend to pay for something that you people should lookafter,you havent fix this so i,m returning it to where i bought it. i,m not satisfied with my response so don,t charge me. jerry also theres no control panel on thios machine
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 1 year ago

Then it isn't a Windows computer at all, I would guess.

Or, you haven't entered a password ***** log in to the machine... Control Panel would be a function obtained once Windows has logged in.

By all means return it. It sounds like the right thing to do.

Thank you for asking your question here at JustAnswer.com.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
