Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Hello, I just bought an Acer Aspire One D250-1585 netbook. And everything seems fairly alright, with the exception of having some key locks that I cannot figure out how to fix. Instead of a slash, I get a : é
Instead of a colon, I get a : è
And this goes on for all the grammer keys. From what I can tell, it seems as if the language has been set to defult french for typing. How can I change it back to english so I can do proper typingé (thatàs supposed to be a question mark, just to give you an idea)
This Happnd to me too jus press the
left alt key and shift together and this toggles the input language to English and it will work 100%%%

I just spent hours surfing everywhere to find out how to get my Acer Aspire D250-1585 to quit typing in french when I used the colon, question mark, and the rest of the symbols. Here is what I found.
In the start menu select control pannel
Select Regional and language.
Make sure your standards and formats is set to english (US or Canadian) depending on where you are.
Location is set to United States or Canada.
Here is the part that I missed. Select the Language Tab at the top, and then the Details button under "text and input Language"
Select English (US or Canada) in the Default input drop down.
When I view mine originally the Default input was set to English (Canadian-Multilingual Standard)
Select Apply at the bottom.
I have now seen numerous people having the same problem with acers running xp. If you symbols are coming up french..... Here is your fix.
