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?

Hello, I´m from Argentina, then, sorry by my English. Try to install other XP, you can find in pages XP in English or Spanish, probably your problem is the language of your OS. After that, install Windows 7. If you fix the problem or not, please, write me at and tell me then will find other solution.
