Re: How to change the language setting to English?
Computers running Windows®, you have the option of typing alternative character sets. This can be selected by clicking on START>SETTINGS> CONTROL PANEL. Then click on the picture of the world globe. This enables users to toggle between Arabic or Hebrew and English. This requires you to learn the keyboard layout for these languages
First, select the desired language.(the default in the U.S. is U.S. English If your computer was sold in a French spealing country, the keyboard might be different. If this is the case, the only solution could be a new keyboard

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.
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.
If you go to this link, you can download the english language drivers for your printer and scanner;
and also the user manual etc.
You probably have to uninstall the french version first before installing the english one, but make sure it downloads first in case there is a problem.
Hope this helps, if not - ask again :)
