Re: cmos problem in panasonic cf-x1w laptop model
The first page of the setup has the date, time, language options so just scroll through the drop down menu. Also go to Panasonic's web site to view the online menu for the BIOS setup and count how far English is from the top of the list so you can just count on the CMOS setup menu!

The BIOS is probably configured to look for a bootable operating system on the hard drive before it looks at the CD drive. When you first turn on the computer, you have to hit a particular key to enter the BIOS setup (I don't know what it is for your model, but for most of the Japanese models I've seen it's the delete key. The startup splash screen should tell you what key it is. You have to hit the key before the splash screen goes away, otherwise it's already booting up from the hard drive. Once you get into the BIOS, you can select the boot option page and move the CD drive up above the hard drive in boot priority. If the OS is in the Japanese language, the BIOS text may also be in Japanese. You can probably download an English-language BIOS firmware update to change that.
Start Button > settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language > Formats tab, scroll to English (United States) > Location Tab, scroll to United States > Keyboards and Languages Tab, click on change and scroll to English (United States)-US , click on the add button and remove the japanese keyboard...hit apply. Click on Language bar and select hidden. click apply and OK and drop that window. Click on the administrative tab > Click on System Locale and change to English - (United States) Hit apply and ok and your keyboard and language is now American, English
It sounds like your computer is set up for the United Kingdom and not The United States....lol enough to drive ya crazy isn't it. Not to fear, this is how you change it.
Go to start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Now here we will take our time and go through all the tabs because there are different settings that have to be changed and when we are done, re-boot the system and you are all set. First tab to click on is "Regional Options" go to the bottom and change your location to "United States". Hit apply after each change, dont re-boot until we are done with all the changes. Now in the upper window, change the standards and formats to (english) United States. Now click on the language tab, on the settings tab, change the input to language to English-United States. In the installed services window below that make sure that english-United States is added and you can delete the United Kingdon if it is there. click apply and ok and you're done with that tab. Now move over to the advanced tab and select English (United States) and hit apply...do not worry about the window under that...code page conversion, just reboot and enjoy an American Keyboard. Good Luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
This means it's a laptop sold in Japan and I'm pretty sure there isn't anything you can do about it. If they made a unit with identical hardware and sold it in the US under a different model # than you can d/l the bios update for the US model and flash it over the Japanese bios. Call the manufacturer to see if that is the case.
