Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

Chose Canadin French instead of Canadian English by accident

No option to change back to english in Control Panel Language settings. Looks like a one time option. Probably set in restore partition or FAT of partition, Just guessing at this point.

    Only solution, go to ACER and bye the restore CD's

    My only solution was to bye the ACER Restore CD's to restore the restore partition. Use an External USB CD/DVD drive to get it started. Also have to change BIOS settings to boot from External Device.

    Hope this helps someone

Hello,
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.

Change language fr french to english!


Hi There,
The method used depends on the version of Windows you are running.

You can right click on the task bar (where the running programs are shown along with the start button) and choose Toolbars... ' Language Bar. The language bar will now be shown, and you can click this, choose settings ' Add... and choose English.

If the language bar option is not available, and you are running Windows XP, open control panel and choose "Options régionales et linguistiques". From here, choose the second tab and down at the bottom there is an option to change to English. It will ask you to logout (it may be in French) so click OK and when you log back in you should be set to English.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, open control panel and choose "Options régionales et linguistiques". From here, choose the third tab and there is a button to install/uninstall languages.
Please post back if you have more questions.

Hi there,

Well first of all you may Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel, to open Regional and Language Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options after then you may select English Language.

Chose french windows instead english windows by accident and need to change it


Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region and then clicking Regional and Language Options.
Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.
Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.
Obviously you'll have to work out the French equivalents of the options but should be fairly obvious

Stuck in french setting - need english


If you are using Windows XP (could beVista... but not certain)

Go to Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options:

Under your Regional Options Tab, be sure that it is set to English (United States) if that is where you reside.

Then go to the Language Tab, and under Text Service and Input Language, click on Details... be sure to select English under the Default Input Language. Click Apply to all windows and that should do it.

Changing language


Hello
You cant change your language on your laptop true control panel, you need to reformat your laptop in the English language. the options in control panel is just for your regional settings and keyboard settings and so on.

only OS that you can change language in is the Vista Ultimate and then you need to install a language pack.
