If your unit is windows Vista, you will need to purchase Vista Ultimate in order to change the language of your operating system. Otherwise, the language is pre-configured by the vendor to display in the language of the country it is distributed in. For example, a laptop purchased in Mexico will most likely come with Windows Vista installed in Spanish. Again, the only way to circumvent that scenario at this time would be to purchase the license of Vista Ultimate to have access to language changing features.

If it is an older operating system, we would need to know which one in order to be able to help you further. Hope that helps.

SETTINGS FROM FRENCH TO ENGLISH


There are three areas you can (or cannot) set languages.
1. Operating system (Windows most probably) Unfortunatelly you cannot change the operating system language. (Except Vista Ultimate and Vista Enterprise edition and having the right MUI)
Other windows languages are not changeable without re-installing the current op.sys. and of course you have to have the right language based op. sys. on cd or on dvd.
2. BIOS language change: It can be change if the BIOS flashable and the BIOS provider released the required version in your language. (Mostly default language is english) Some BIOS can be set to other language without flashing it. Look in the BIOS menu first. It's not easy to find if its set to another language but try every sub menu than you will find it.
3. The regional and keyboard settings. Its a basic setup in the control panel--->Regional and Language (GLOBE ICON) ---> firs and second tab you have to choose the desired language.

Change the display language gl_icon_tip.png Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.
Which edition of Windows Vista am I using? The display language is the language that Windows uses in wizards, dialog boxes, menus, Help and Support topics, and other items in the user interface. Some display languages are installed by default, and others require you to install additional language files. When you change the display language, it is changed for your user account and is not changed on the Welcome screen. If you want to set the display language for multiple users or the Welcome screen, see Apply regional and language settings to reserved accounts.
1. Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Regional and Language Options.
2. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.
3. Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.
NoteIf you don't see the list of display languages, you need to install additional language files first. For more information, see Install a display language. When you change the display language, the text in menus and dialog boxes for some programs might not be in the language that you want. This happens because the program might not support Unicode. For more information about changing the text in menus and dialog boxes for programs that do not support Unicode, see Change the system locale.
See also: For the camera, you need to go to Sony's website, search for the drivers for your model, then select the Vista driver.
You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
