Question about Sony VAIO VGN-S460 Notebook

1 Answer

Can't use the FN Keys.

After installing XP Pro in another language instead of XP Home English Version, I am unable to use the FN Keys in any way. Is there any to find a solution? As I can't really use - Power Point Presentations or videos via video Projectors.....

I really appreciate if some one could help.

I have windows xp laptop that was given to me from a friend its in japanese i have no idea how to change it to english version please help me? Vicky


Hi Vicky, how are you?

Here's the story with Windows XP... On a system running ENGLISH Windows XP (Professional ONLY), you can put a Multi-language User Interface (MUI in short) and make it localized. This action is reversible, means you can go back to English at any time or switch to another language. BUT, if the original Windows language is NOT English, you just can't switch the user interface to English.

How to check if it's original English version or not? - Go to Control Panel (a symbol of a notebook and a pen) -> Regional and Language Options (a symbol of a globe). Click on the Languages tab (the middle one). If there's a selection box at the button - you're in luck! Click it and change to English. Then accept and restart!
In there's no selection box - I'm sorry but you'll have to format and install an English version of Windows XP - Home or Professional - whatever fits you best!

Hope I helped,
Pelu.

PS: On laptops that ships with Windows pre-installed in a localized version (language), there's SOMETIMES an indicator to it on the license sticker at the bottom of the laptop.

Eee pc 4G with windows xp, its in chinese. how do i change the language to english, is it possible without downloading another version of windows xp


Start button, control panel, language, change it and region to USA,
English.

If it is a Chinese install, the only way you can change it is if windows
is Pro, or ultimate. Home editions can not load language packs.

Go to your Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Languages, Details, and check that the default input language, and keyboard are English. This is assuming you're running Windows XP.

New computor installed it in french instead of english


It depends on the operateing system.
If you have vista buisness or ultimate than just dowload a MUI pack, but it only works with those 2, it won't work with home basic and home premium, other's need to be upgraded to at least buisness first than you can use the MUI to make it english. Othervise you need to reinstall the operateing system with prefered one in the right language.
For windows XP there are MUIs as well however it's not sold commercially.
How can I acquire Windows MUI?The Windows XP/2000 MUI issold only through Volume Licensing programs such as the Microsoft OpenLicense Program (MOLP / Open), Select, and Enterprise agreement (orwith a new computer as an OEM version at customer request). It is notavailable through retail channels.

Keyboard Fn key


Try hooking up and external key board see if that works ok, and if it does you may want to try to find a new or used key board for your laptop. The key board may be shot, It should be fairly easy to change to a new board, Hopefully That will help you diag. the problem..
