My daughter has a Gateway Model T laptop computer that is showing characters instead of English on the screen. The icons still work but everything else is in the gibberish. How can this be fixed or can it?
Is it really xp? What are icons? Are they the shortcuts on the desktop? Press the windows key amd type intl.cpl into the run box and hit enter. In installed services, click add. Select the language, or make certain ypur language is correct. If it is, then it sounds like there may be a sticking funtion key. Hold down the right shift key for ten seconds, and turn off stickey keys.
