Keyboard language change in Win7 not working for anyone?

The typical -go to control panel and keyboard language setting- instructions dont work on Home Premium 7 for some unknown reason.

Im at a loss.

The OS seems to be in English, but the keyboard doesnt want to change to Spanish.

Recent reinstall from partition. Legit copy, came with the laptop. Was working before the reinstall OK. Iirc the default interface might have been showing spanish, which might explain why i didnt have this problem before in the keyboard.

I think I was given the option to choose language at reinstall, and that I chose English. But everyone else who-s had problems with interface language never complained about keyboard issues.

I tried format, location and keyboards and languages, to change them all to spanish. It says theyre in spanish but the keyboard just ignores it.
