Because of the incredible technological change, today the computer is reaching out to a huge number of people all over the world. Almost all computers and their software are produced by Western countries (especially the USA). The values, beliefs and culture of those countries are also carried by them to other countries. In this research, we tried to see the cultural side of the problems related with the computer interfaces. The research was based on Trompenaars's 7-D cultural model. The researcher explored whether different cultures have different approaches to interact with the computers and what kind of problems they face. The research results show that culture influences user preferences in interface acceptance. There are cultural differences among different cultures in interacting with computer interfaces.
