It looks pretty proprietary to me, but basically, if you can install software on a device, you can usually change the OS, if you are software savvy enough. There might be some tedious modifications that might need to be made. If it was me, I think I might explore the user settings on your device and see if you can't make what you have more to your liking. Good luck whatever you do.

How do i change my conputer language

First off i got to ask do you have Windows or a Linux based OS on your PC? I was also wondering if your trying to translate to a language like English to Chinese or simply want your computer to have a completely different language on it? I wrote several ideas I had on mind below that can hopefully give you a good start.
In my experience their are several ways to install or configure different languages for a PC. I know that some browsers will come with or provide extensions that translate English to like Chinese or to other languages. I also know that Windows Update will provide language packs for people who need not only their browser translating languages, but also their OS to have a different language.. If your language packs where not hidden when you set up the PC then you can find it by clicking search on Windows Update. If not, then Microsoft should have a site that lets you search for those kind of Windows Updates. Also if your using Linux they give you an option to what language you want when you install their operating system. I don't know your an exact OS so if you need any help just let me know.

Hi salem_53
1° If this suddenly happend without having made any previous changes or downloads or up dates , delete and reinstall driver . Otherwise , restore your system to an earlier date when your scanner was still running smoothly . If the issue persists , your device is good for the trash bin .
2 ° If you have updated your OS , the driver is no more compatible with the new OS and you' re back to sentence 1°
Best regards ,

Frence is set as default on Linux OS. but no option to change to english in parametres

It sounds like someone installed it with only one language. It's then practically impossible to change it without a deep knowledge of Linux. What flavour of Linux does it use? You can download the most recent version from their website and reinstall. Linux stores files in a different partition to the OS so provided you tell it not to repartition you shouldn't lose any data.

Want to swap hard drives from a systen not working

I have a lot of experience with Linux. Linux is totally free and the discs not only contain the OS, but every conceivable program you might need. Linux is a federation of engineers that work together. It comes in different "disrtibutions" and they are renewed once a year. Mandriva 2009 Spring edition was just released and is one of the most popular one, another is Ubuntu 9.04 which was released mid May this year. I find it to be the better of the two. The Linux encourages their clients to copy and distribute. If you are interested, I can send you a copy. You can also have two OS´s together and switch from one to the other. This is how I operated for over two years, until they perfected their system. Thank you very much for considering our service...

Drivers for Scanner BenQ 4300U using Linux

It depends on what linux distribution your are using. I run SuSe 10.3 and there is a solution for that, but it's in Spanish. Link to and while in there, look for a link that says "aqui", click there and a pdf document will appear explaining how to install the firmware. It worked for me just fine! Remember, in Linux, the scanner program is called "sane" or "xsane", there is no "Mirascan" or "scan button".

What is the difference between unix and linux

UNIX is a operating system which has only command user interface, and if the unix is installed in the system you cant install any other operating system after that ... one separate system must be allocated for the unix ...

LINUX is the graphical user interface and it supports multiple operating system ..

UNIX and LINUX are almost same, almost all commands which supports in UNIX supports in LINUX too .. with some extended features just like GUI(GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE),SECURITY,MULTI USER,MULTI TASKING,etc

COMMAND USER INTERFACE - the input is made to the computer by using commands and the output is obtained by command or by printer ...

GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE- the input is provided to the computer through the other input devices like mouse,joystick etc
the input is provided either by command or by the just clicking the mouse on the particular icon ...

example for graphical user interface is windows,Macintosh etc ...
