My keyboard language keeps changing to EN





infinisa
Hello All

I used to have this irritating problem with my portable PC - the keyboard language would keep jumping from PT (which is what I have) to EN. I tried uninstalling the EN keyboard language, but it still kept popping back!

Now I'm really irritated because the same thing has suddenly started happening with my desktop - I've been using it for 1 years without any problems of this kind and now all of a sudden this same problem is happening with this PC!

Both PC's run Win XP SP3 in English.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Have you tried searching for a Language Pack for Xp, in your language?

Hi Spiritfall

My Language is English (EN); my keyboard is Portuguese (PT). I can't imagine I need to install anything (unless it's a patch for Windows Smile ).

As I said, everything was working fine until Windows started spontaneously changing my keyboard from PT to EN a few days ago. And this happens even if I uninstall the EN keyboard (Windows just decides to reinstall it again!)

To make matters worse, this is not a rare phenomenon: it happens several times a day.

Thanks anyway.

I know it's a crazy question but ...
Do you have layouts in your Registry? Laughing

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts

if not then add them(Merge) with this reg file:

Hope it helps

Hello albuferque

Yep, I have loads of keyboard layouts in the registry at HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts including, of course:

00000816 Portuguese
00000409 US

Thanks anyway

Hello All

I've tried uninstalling the EN Keyboard, and that seems to be working for now. But I'm not very hopeful based on past experience:

So let's just see what happens.

Removing US layout (leaving only PT) from Control Panel - > Keyboard Settings isn't helping?

Yeah, it's working fine.

I waited a while to reply to see whether the problem would reappear, but so far, so good. Smile
