    Hi. Few editions of lenova laptop comes with multi language OS. if you select arabic by mistake, it is possible that it happens to reverse the name spells from right hand side.
    To resolve this go to Control Panel-> clock, language, and region-> change display language.
    make sure you have US keyboard layout selected, else change it. Let me know if it solve the issue.

    The full name of the 0210 error is: "Stuck Key, Keyboard Connection Error".
    - Suggests: bad keyboard, loose or damaged keyboard cable, problem with keyboard IC chip.

    Displaying typing backwards suggests: problem with keyboard IC chip.

    Most of the time [not always] this IC chip is on the motherboard and that means a new motherboard is needed.
    I have seen a few where the chip was mounted on the back side of the touch-pad.
    I'm not familiar with Lenovo laptops though, so I can't say where it might be on yours.

    You might try removing the keyboard and cable and using a desktop keyboard via USB or PS/2 ports.
