Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Need to purchase

I plan to purchase a laptop that will be going to Mexico. I was told that the Windows XP can transform from English to Spanish for use in Mexico, but I noticed all new laptops come with Vista. Would this be able to be changed during my purchase?

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.

In this area add English and remove Spanish

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Change operating system on Acer Aspire One from Linux to Windows


I would suggest that you get a good Technician to do this : Change your keyboard to an English Keyboard first (If its not English), then let the Technician help you with changing the boot sequence to boot from CDROM (he should be able to find his way to the place if your BIOS is not written in English...through experience). thereafter, let him boot use a Windows CD (English of course) to boot from CDROM, and then install it for you. Then you can also download your necessary drivers from www.laptopdrivers.net.
That should solve the problem...because I've actually used a spanish IBM Desktop before also...lol, very long time though, and that was the method I used to change it to WindowsMe back then.
You can as well try out all these methods if you know how to find your way through it.
Hope this helps.
Goodluck!

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.
