    My whole operating system is in English. I expect I could switch to English, but I couldn't so far. It's a brand new 8930 Model. Please help me.

    Windows Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI) would have been the perfect solution to your dilemma. However, MUI is sold only through Volume Licensing programs such as the Microsoft Open License Program (MOLP / Open), Select, and Enterprise agreement (or with a new computer as an OEM version at customer request). It is not available through retail channels. Turns out you will need an English Version after all.

The only way you can fix this is in control panel under
Regional and Langauge Icon that looks a Globe on a stand
When it opens you will see tabs at the top it's the second tabe from left to right that's the tab you want.
Once you click on that you will see one button right below it that says details or whatever it says in french.
Click on that one button and another window will open up.
The tab you need to be on will be the defualt tab you are on.
Now there will be 2 windows within that one tab the first window will have a pull down menu that's not the one you want
Below that you will see another window which a button to the right top button says Add click on that.
It will open another window which is the one you want.
There is a pull down menu click on that and scroll down till you see english then highlight it hit ok.
Then click on Apply down at the bottom right hand corner,
That window will close then click apply again.
The computer might have you restart if so go ahead and do that when it reboots you should have everything in english
Happy Holidays

Got an HP Laptop. Need to change language of keyboard to English as when I press a symbol, it brings up an incorrect one.


In the bottom right hand corner of your screen (on the taskbar), you'll see either a symbol of a keyboard (Windows Vista or Windows 7), or two letters together (Windows XP). This symbol represents the language you're currently using for your keyboard. Click on that symbol with your mouse, and select which language you'd like to use (In this case english) to resolve this problem

You can only change the language of Vista if you have Vista Ultimate
or Enterprise.


With Ultimate, you can download the language packs for free.
Just open Windows Update, choose "view available updates",
and check the language pack you want.


Afterwards, from Control Panel (categories view), just choose
"Change display language" under "Clock, Language and Region".
Pick your language, log off, log on, and done.




If you have another version of Vista other than those two,
such as Windows Vista Home Premium,
you'll need to purchase a "full version" of Windows
Vista in your desired language and perform a "clean install" or
install it on a separate partition or drive (dual-boot).

Click the big button
The first thing that pops up has a language selector. See if you can pick out English (United States).

Is it the Operating System you are trying to install?
or the service pack 2 for WinXP?

If it is the OS click on the ASK ME tab under my User ID and leave your contact address, I will send out the 3CD set for compaq Armada/Presario to load the OS and Applications.

If it is the Service pack, don't install SP2, Install SP3
The release candidate 2 is in English, German, or Japanese.
Down at the bootom of this link's page, select the language you want and download approx 315mb

Language change of OS Windows Vista Home basic


spanish may be already installed as package;if not you can install any language from the disk..
on a personal note vista has great graphics but the system runs slow.if the machine is installed with vista its upto speed so if you was to install xp on the machine you would have a nice fast machine.
