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.

MY LAP TOP IS IN SPANICH IWANT IT IN ENGLISH


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Tableau Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To change the whole system language you should install newer service pack with different language.

If you have XP SP2 in Spanish and want to have it in Eng, you will have to download SP3 in Eng, change someregistry keys (go to KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Nls\Language registry key, and then change the value date for “Default” and “InstallLanguage” registry value from 0409 to 0410) and you'll be able to install it in Eng.
Resume:
1.Go to start
2. Press run
3. Type Regedit
4. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ go to "SYSTEM" \ go to "ControlSet001" \ go to "Control"\ go to "Nls" go to " languages"
5. Change the Default” and “InstallLanguage” (first and last in the list) to 0409 [for you.S english, for other codes look down in the thread],
6. Download and install Sp3 for xp in English
7. Restart computer.
8. Be happy for it works.

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.
