How can i change the language on my compaq laptop from french to english without knowing a word of french

On Microsoft Windows (Windows Vista & 7) this can be accomplished. On all versions of Windows, this panel can be reached by opening the Run line (or Start Menu search box on Vista and 7) Pressing WIN KEY+R and typing intl.cpl followed by Pressing Enter Key.
This would open the Language Options.


From the above box you have to choose English US, the click Advance settings button at the bottom right as shown above.

Press E and select English US and press OK button. Restart the laptop.
As you would be facing French interface, it would be a little difficult but not impossible. So, Give it a try. Please note that options are the same and by paying a little attention, YOU CAN DO IT!

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a Compaq Presario CQ56-204CA. The default F keys are functions like brightness and stuff. To reach a F key, i must hold the Fn key. I would like to switch that to the default keys is the F keys....

I had the same problem and it looks like you can change this setting within the BIOS. It's called Action Keys, and apparently HP thought its users would rather press Fn to use F1-F12 than pressing Fn to change the brightness and such. Here's an HP article I used to change this on a Presario CQ56-115DX. Just use the directions and disable Action Keys
