I had tried to installed SharePoint 2010 on a window 2008 R2 server both as a standalone and server farm(complete). In both case, when I go to Central Aministration page, the ribbon is completely disabled. Anyone know what is the problem?

The account i used to install SharePoint is my domain account, which belong to the local admin group of the server. And the server have SQL 2008 R2 installed

I tried to follow these instruction page and still didn't solve my problem (i don't even know what is the problem in the first place. Any help is much appreciate)

If you're using UAC then you need to Start IE as an Administrator when you go to central admin - right click, start as Administrator.
