What was your original language?

If it was original in english and you changed. goto Control Panel, Regional and Language option and make sure everything is set for english .

If your original XP installation was in French, then you may have to obtain an English XP CD and re-install.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Stuck in french setting - need english


If you are using Windows XP (could beVista... but not certain)

Go to Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options:

Under your Regional Options Tab, be sure that it is set to English (United States) if that is where you reside.

Then go to the Language Tab, and under Text Service and Input Language, click on Details... be sure to select English under the Default Input Language. Click Apply to all windows and that should do it.

This is a simple case of Display drivers not properly installed. I'm sure that the Compaq website has driver downloads available from their website. In this case, I'm pretty sure that any language on the drivers will work.

I have 2 questions/problems. I have an international student from the French-speaking country of Benin who is staying with me in USA. She has an Acer Extensa 5220 with OS Vista basic. Her laptop is...


I had a Chinese student with a Vista laptop so she could go through the steps below on her computer which was in Chinese and she translated from Chinese to English according to as what was on her laptop we assumed it was the same on the Vista computer in French.
1. Clicked on the Windows orb
2. Clicked on Control Panel.
3. Clicked on Network and Sharing Center.
4. Clicked on Manage wireless networks.
5. I highlighted my network and clicked on Remove. Then I fiddled around with it to find my network and forced it to connect it to my network. At least this is what I could tell because the owner of the laptop went out of town for a couple of days. Some words were close enough to English when I was messing arround. Well, it worked. I still need to know (for any later problems) how to switch her computer into English and back to French for when I have to troubleshoot another problem for her. She is totally non-technical and about all she can do is read and send emails and surf the web. And, I assume, can write papers on it for school. She is in a Masters program here in USA.

I have a logitech keyboard (model S10) and some how I switched it on to it's french keyboard setting. How do I cahnce it back to the english keyboard setting. Thanks!


delete the French from the keyboard setup section in windows, to cycle between them there should be a little box on the task bar if it is not locked this will, if clicked, offer selection of languages you have installed to use on the computer.En will be English and Fr is French etc etc.
