Hi,
Click on the start menu and click control panel. From the list in control panel click on Regional and Language Options.
Click on the Languages tab and then click on the Details button.
In that list you will both language settings (US and FR or UK or FR).
Click on French FR and click on remove.
You may need to add the English keyboard settings so just click on add and select which keyboard settings you want.
The computer will tell you that the language cannot be removed until you log off or something similar of that nature.
Click Yes and then Apply and Apply and OK in the other window.

Then click on the start menu and log off your account.
Re-log on and the keyboard settings should be changed to UK.

If you require anymore help please feel free to post back.


Regards.

HOW TO GET MY LAPTOP TO STOP USING THE PINK ALTCAR


I found this on another website and it worked for me. Good luck.

Okay, I know this is an old question but when i searched for the same problem recently, it was the nearest I could find. So in case others are having the same problem:

The Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. The alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.

Why are some of my keys showing É or é


sounds like your keyboard is speaking another language. Go to control panel, regions, and make sure that English is selected.

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.

Voila!

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