Question about PC Desktops
I have a NEC Desktop Computer running Windows XP Home Edition SP 2 with an ATI X300 (RV370) display card.
A few months ago, I did a security update from Microsoft and was advised to update my ATI display driver. So, I updated it accordingly to Version 8.6 (Display driver only).
However,the language of the system boot up display and the Windows Advanced OptionsMenu changed from English to another European language after the driverupgrade.
The language is similarly changed when booting up a Linux LiveCD although the same LiveCD would display correctly in English when it is being booted up on another computer.
It may be pertinent to note that only the language of the system boot up display has changed. Windows XP and Linux are still in English after the booting. The BIOS Setup Utility is also still in English.
I have googled for a solution for the past few months without any success.
I would appreciate very much your expert opinion on what could be the problem and how to resolve it. Thanks.
Go into Control Panel> Regional and Language Option,Double Click
*Click on the Languages tab
* Click on the Details button
Under Default language, select English : If English is not a choice, you can click Add, and add it.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
