Hi everyone,

I am new here and I must say this site is great! A lot of information and people are friendly. Anyway, I hope you can help me on my problem.

To go on to Windows you go through the windows logon screen where you are required to type in a password. The original language setup was setup to Arabic (since my laptop was pre-installed with windows XP and was bought in the Middle East) and was changed to set in English (Start>Control Panel etc.). Now when I placed a password (in English) and at the logon screen I am required to type my password but the original language (Arabic), thus when I type in the password it does not get recognised. Does anyone know how to bypass the Windows XP screen or change the language at the logon screen.

Your help will be appreciated. Thank you!

When you click on your name at the log in screen the should be a square with 2 letters next to it. Try double clicking on it and see if you can chaneg the language from there.

To change the language go to Control Panel, and then Regional and Language Options.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
