Reset computer typing to english

In Windows XP, to reset all language settings to English (I know this is hard, especially if you don't know the language it got set to!):
1. Click the Start button which is the green button in the left hand corner of the screen (your mouse can't go any farther).
2. In the Start menu, click the Control panel which looks like a tablet with a pencil and check mark. Here's a picture of the Start button (lower left) and start menu, including the icon you want to find marked clearly.
3. Click the Language and Regional option, which is a calendar and an image of the Earth.
4. Under the 2nd header (Control Panel icon) click Regional and Language options, which is a globe.
5. When it opens, click the dropdown box and look for English, then click OK (the first button in the set of buttons)

We want to change the language to English

Only Windows 7 Ultimate, Mac OSX and Linux operating systems (OS) can change the language of the menus and icons.

Most probably you have Windows 7 Home Edition
If you just got this PC you can reinstall a new operating system in English that you buy. Installing this will completely erase and replace the present system, files and programs.

Another way is to do a dual boot - a computer loaded with two separate operating systems on two partitions (C: and D: which you create) on the same hard disc. This will give you the choice of using the original OS or another one in English for example Windows XP or a free Linux Ubuntu OS. Google Dual Boot for instructions for your model of Notebook. This will involve some study and experimentation and you may lose the OS you have now, so back up your data. Here is an example of dual boot instructions:
