How can add Dutch Input Language?

Hello Windows Expert,

I have bought an EEE Pc, en due to virus attack had to reinstall it.
The problem is, Input language is standard qwerty.
But i need Ductch azerty input language.
When i go to Regional ... Languages, Details,
When i click on ADD i can add Dutch (Belgium)
but under Keyboard layout, there just a few and
not single one is in azerty, almost all United States and some Dvorak.
Is it possible to install an extra one?
You're help is very appreciated.

Kind regards
Steven

Steven--I have the option to add a Dutch keyboard.  Perhaps you need to run SFC /SCANNOW from a command prompt to restore missing files.

Hello,

Thank you for you're reply.
I also can add Dutch Input Language, but under keyboard layout there are only
United States and united kingdom, wich both are qwerty keyboards,
This is the Stripped down version from XP (Asus) for EEE pc, not the Standard windows.
And it seems such a little problem under normal XP, but here i just cannot find solution.
SFC /SCANNOW does not have any effect by the way, the proces doesn't even start.

Kind regards
Steven

stevenvervliet--I am not familiar with EEE Pc.  Now I have learned a little by Googling.  As a stripped down version of Windows, it seems you do not have all the functionality of WinXP.  It may be that the Dutch keyboard is one of the items missing.
"SFC /SCANNOW does not have any effect by the way, the proces doesn't even start"
If SFC /SCANNOW proceeds without problem, you will see nothing but a progress bar, which just disappears when SFC is finished.
If SFC does not start at all (no progress bar) then you may be missing those files as well. System File Checker is a standard feature of Win XP.  It is a procedure to restore corrupt and/or missing operating system files.

Do you have the file sfc.exe?  You could try running it from a command prompt.
http://ask-leo.com/what_is_the_system_file_checker_and_how_do_i_run_it.html
If you have no sfc.exe, you cannot run System File Checker.
P.S.  I suspect there are ways of copying the I386 file from a friend's WinXP CD and perhaps getting the missing items onto your PC.  But I cannot offer any help there.

Hello Jcimarron,

I have an orginal windows xp cd-rom too. Can i copy somehow the dutch keyboard layout from there?
The cd that came with Asus EEE PC is definetely not good because it's qwerty and it should be azerty.
But the original is dutch one and full, so it should hold the Dutch Keyboard layout,
the question is, how do i get it into my EEE pc.
You're comments are very appreciated.

Kind regards

stevenvervliet--Remember I said "I am not familiar with EEE Pc."
For me to offer more ideas would probably not be good.  
I can say that the original (before updates) Win XP Operating System files are in the I386 folder on your WinXP CD.  With normal Win XP PC's you can copy that folder to your hard drive. The links I gave you should help you understand what settings in Registry SFC requires to access those files.  (Basically SFC needs to be aimed at a Source Path.  A good reference on that is http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/howto-24.html )
To install sfc.exe you should only need to locate it in I386 and copy it to the C:\Windows\System32 folder,  Then you should be able to run SFC /SCANNOW .  
Having said all that, I have no idea where the keyboard files are in I386.  But that should not be an issue if SFC now works.
