It depends a bit on your installation but you should be able to do this. First install the language if you need to. (Win7 Ultimate and Enterprise allow for Multiuser User Interface Pack; All other versions use Language Interface Pack and you must install the Parent language. Microsoft.com and search for the appropriate pack.) The LIP doesn't translate everything. Then in the Control Panel, click Clock, Region and Language. Then click Region and Language, the Keyboard tab will let you change the keyboard language and the Administrative tab will let you change the System Locale. Once you install the additional language, you'll also see a tab for Display Language. Set this to Spanish.
Hot keys are also available for switching on the fly once the language is installed. The Welcome Screen will get a Keyboard Layout button when more than one language is installed to switch languages then. (This can be locked for some users so see the Windows Help to find more information. It's still in the Region and Language section.)

If you only want the Spanish, consider reinstalling the OS with an international (or whatever MS calls it) version of the OS.

I hope this helps.

HI,
I is not possible to completely change the language. English is used in some vital system settings pages / configurations.
but still you can make use of your regional language ( spanish) by changing the system language in start -> control panel -> regional settings.

There you can find settings to change the primary / system language to spanish.

I hope this is helpful to you
Thanks

IDEAPAD HAS SPANISH LANGUAGE ON IT WILL NEED TO CHANGE CMOS AND REINSTALL WIN 7 IN ENGLISH


On the IdeaPad, while the system is booting, before you get to the windows booting screen (during the BIOS boot), press F2 to bring up the BIOS options. From there, change the language ("idioma" in spanish) from spanish (Espanol) to english (Ingles). If that doesn't fix it, then change the language in Windows 7 (Start menu > Control Pannel > Clock, language, and Region > Region and Language)
You should not have to reinstall the operating system. If you have trouble navigating in Spanish, contact me at my listed email address.

How do i change language from spanish to english


This question is a bit broad, if you are looking to change the language that the keyboard types in you would go to "start" > "Control Panel" > (From this point the option itself may vary in exact name depending on your operating system) "Change Keyboard / Region Settings"

If you go under region / language you should be able to set everything to english. If however you purchased the computer in a spanish region and spanish is the primary language on the computer, you may have to upgrade your operating system to the "Ultimate" version of whatever windows you may have. From there you can install the language pack that will reset the computer to english.

Can you change the langauge of a computer, my mate bought a computer at a boot fair and it is in spanish, ( the language) is there a way you can change it to english


I can help you change your language, but I need to know the Operating System installed on your computer. (i.e. windows xp, windows vista, windows 7, etc...).

It would be easier if you can somehow read spanish, let me know whether you can read spanish or not. If you are not, i have to include some illustrations and icons (graphics).

Awaiting.

Changing an english computer over to spanish


to change your operateing system language you need to get the windows in that language. There are many difrent versions of windows in difrent languages.

If I want my xp to be in finnish I have to get my hands on a CD which is in finnish. IF I want english I need a english version of the cd.

You will need a spanish xp setup cd.

also it may be possible to convert xp into another language. with some
Windows XP Multilingual User Interface (MUI)

I hear it costs money and I haven't used or tryed it.
