Windows 7: Japanese Win 7 Ultimate - Text Input in Japanese

Japanese Win 7 Ultimate - Text Input in Japanese

Dear All,
Sorry if this is in the wrong place, couldn't spot a Language/Region sub forum.
Anyway, I hope someone can help with the following problem:

1. My PC is a Japanese Dell that came pre-installed with Win 7 Home.
2. I used Windows Anytime Upgrade to bump it up to Win 7 Ultimate.
3. I downloaded and installed the English Language pack so that I could switch the display language between English and Japanese.

Here's the problem:
After switching to English, I can no longer enter text in Japanese
- I'm using a Japanese keyboard, have switched the Locale to Japan and added the Japanese keyboard configuration to "Keyboard and Languages". No joy.
If anyone has any ideas I am all ears!
All the best,

Apologies. Stupid IME bar wasn't popping up. Went into the JA settings and selected it.
Sorry for wasting anyone's time!
