I think you may have to ask Dell about this.
Change bios to english - if available
Have you tried using the language bar?
Reloading software and selecting it to use English?
The keyboard will be a prob if in french.
Use an external keyboard to install software?
English keyboard may be available for replacement.

How to make french accents marks on a laptop that doesn't have a number pad

You need to tell windows it has a french keyboard:

In the control panel, go to regional and language options.
Go to the keyboards and languages tab, click change keyboards. On the window that pops up, click on the general tab. You probably have just the us keyboard installed. Click add, then choose either english-canada or french-france, then click to add the french keyboard. Click preview to see where the accent keys will be (so you can find them). Now, select the french keyboard and click 'move up' so the french keyboard is above the us english one.


Hope this helps. Post a comment if you get stuck.

Chose Canadin French instead of Canadian English by accident

Yes you are right: it is a one time option. You can however install other languages. You will switch from the Canadian French keyboard to the US or English Canadian keyboard by pressing Shift Alt. You will console yourself if I told you that I type mainly in French, but the physical keyboard is US and I cannot even use the Alt + Ascii code to put the accents where due, because the laptop does not have numeric pad.

Hope it helps.
