How do I change my keyboard language at the login screen?!!! HELP! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok this is very urgent. I just purchased a new desktop with Windows 7. The language for some reason had some variation of Russian as the default. I added English UK and deleted the Russian keyboard. HOWEVER I did not copy those settings to the login screen. Now when I go to log in the only keyboard is Russian and my password is in English!!!

    Can someone please help me. I am completely stuck and have gone through forums for the past 2 hours and still nothing.

    Please help :)

  • Only Windows 7 Ultimate supports the alternate language packs.  What version of Windows do you have?
