  1. 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???

    If you still have English listed as one of your languages, you should be able to navigate through your listed languages using CTRL+SHIFT, even from the login screen.
