Cannot install Chinese character recognition

2008-12-30, 22:34 PM

I click on add East Asian Support in the Region/Langauge section and it keeps asking me for the Microsoft XP Pro cd. This unit as regulars here know does not come with this cd.

Any suggestions would be appreciated since I am new to Thinkads and this forum.

Also, I have never been asked for this cd on any PC, downloaded the language packs from microsoft and I what is needed is laptop to display Chinese characters.

When you ask for a cd, you can just direct the search for the file in your hdd...

Thanks everybody for the help. Everytime I point to a file , it was not there and always said "put in XP cd. When I got this back from our company, I ordered the genuine restore/recovery cds from Lenovo and wiped the system clean. It runs so much faster now and the Chinese character/input works great. Now I just have to figure out wireless problem.

I guess that is where your problem lies, you didn't use the Lenovo recovery media to install the OS, you used the normal aftermarket window cd for the installation, which is why it asked for the CD.... you got me baffled for a moment there, but that is normal.
