My son got an Acer Extenza 4630Z today for Christmas, while setting it up and not paying attention to the pop up screens, he accidentally set it up in French. I have tried going into control panel and changing the language but nothing. Don't know if I'm doing the right thing in the right place or not. HELP!

Re: Computer set up
There are three sections in the language application that you must work on.
1. The first tab, in the first section, set it to "English (United States), and in the second lower section, set it to United States.
2. The second tab, in the top section press the button and in the first section of the new box use the drop down and select "English (United States)-US. The box below should have what language the keyboard is set to input. If you make changes, the bottom right button is "Apply".
3. The third tab, in the first section, the drop down menu should be English (United States).
Once again, press the Apply button when you have finished making changes.

If you have precious files on your HDD and it's inaccessible at present I would download a copy of Puppy Linux and burn it to CD (or buy one off ebay for 2 euros). Boot off this and browse to your HDD, copy files to a USB memory stick if you have one. I assume you've tried SYSTEM RESTORE in Windows and it isn't accessible or doesn't work. If this is so, you could try ebay for these extenza recovery disks. Failing that you should use your Windows installation disk to do a REPAIR INSTALL (Google for instructions). If you have not got one you could buy one from ebay for your OS but that could be costly. A cheaper way is to buy one of the many system restore disks available on ebay but you will risk having malware. Good Luck
How to identify there is fan problem some time. ok if you need the fan setting then go to the BIOS (While starting the windows press the F8 when blue screen has came) then go to performance and find the Fan, default in on. if you want to change the setting you should change.
But i'm thinking this is not Fan problem, can you please explain you problem.
1. Try uninstalling the current bluetooth drive that you currently have
2. Click on this link to download the latest bluetooth driver from Acer website
3. Choose Notebook --> Extensa --> Extensa 4630z
4. Choose the appropriate Windows XP
3. Keep on hitting next until the computer prompt you to restart and you are all set
Bring your Laptop to the nearest Computer Center or any Local Technician to see your laptop. Laptop like this are problem with short circuit or manage power voltage connection. Also it's having some trouble with motherboard pizza's inside. Good luck!
I wrote to Acer myself about this and this is their reply.
other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time
repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of
opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts
Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:
“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”
If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.
If you see this: “Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”
it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you
now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on
your screen after a short pause..
In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.
The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs. This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine. If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.
