Laptop software written in Chinese

Hi, I have an unusual problem. I was given a used laptop and when I booted it up was shocked to see Chinese text. I've attempted to enter Setup/Bios but I'm not quick enough or something and can't decipher whats on the screen. Part of the prob is the keyboard is very different, and delete etc. aren't in their usual spots as well as Asian symbols on the keys. It's a FUJITSU- FMV-BIBLO NB9/95 Laptop w/ XP Home Edition OS. However I think there may be more than 1 OS installed/ unsure bout that tho. Now can I get software off the Net re: Win XP that will help, or should I visit the Fujitsu website? Please help!!! Thanx , Christa. Model is FMVNB995

Your cheap way out would be to contact Fujitsu. They can sell you a Windows XP CD for that laptop that is in English. If you buy your own, it will cost you more. The one that they sell you will only work on that brand of laptop. It will be less than half the cost of a store bought Windows XP though.
The problem with the Asian keyboard; You will have to have them sell you an American keyboard. I am sure that the laptop is at least worth the cost.
I hope that this Fixed your problem.

The laptop stays on for few minutes and then it turns itself off but before it does that, it shows a large blue scree and some large white text, the text flicks a little but fast to the point where I can...


First of all Turn of your laptop.
Now this time when you turn on your laptop start tapping F8 Key on you keyboard when you Toshiba logo. Tap F8 key for at least 5-6 times.
You will get a Windows Advance Option Menu. You will see lot of options over their written in white text. Your mouse will not work on this screen. Use UP and DOWN arrow keys on you keyboard and highlight Last known good configuration. Once highlighted press enter on it. See if you computer boots. If it boots try doing a restore.
If it doesn't boot.
Turn off your computer and then turn on your computer. On Toshiba Logo screen tap F8 key once again and go to windows advanced option menu screen once again and this time hightlight Disable automatic restart on system failure. Now when you see Blue screen coming up on your computer once again your computer won't restart. Now you can write down the information to trace out the blue screen that is occurring on your computer. Write down the Error code which will be in form of STOP 0x000000XX, you find this error code somewhere at the bottom of the blue screen.
Once you get the reply here, we will see what we can do.

Hi.

This sounds like classic shock damage to the HDD (hard disk drive), the hard drive has become loose or the system memory has worked loose.
Unplug the power cord and also remove the battery from the laptop. Turn the laptop upside down and look for small panels with philips screw heads. Unscrew them and look for the system memory. The memory looks like this >>>>

There could be 2 of these modules in the laptop so take them out and just reseat them, then put the cover back on.
Also look for the hard drive and make sure that has not come loose. Once you have checked on the memory and HDD try to boot the OS again, if its still does the same thing remove the battery again and power cord and put the laptop somewhere where it will be undisturbed for at least 24 hours. This is to give the hard drive time to settle down.
When the 24 hours is up try booting the laptop up to see if the amount of time its had to settle has helped at all.

If not then your next thing to do is to try recover the operating system, either by the recovery CD or the hidden recovery partition if its a new laptop. If you don't know if your computer has a recovery partition then please post the make and model number here and i'll tell you whether its has or not.

If you can't recover the system using a recovery CD or recovery partition then you maybe looking at a new hard drive due to shock damage.


Hope this helps and if there is anything else I can help you with please post back.



Regards.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

My acer aspire 5920 is in chinese and i need to know how to change to english


Hi,
use your XP install disc (or Vista or whatever OS you use) to boot up your laptop and do a Repair Install. Usually you will get a prompt to "Boot from CD by pressing any key." during the power up of your laptop. If you dont get that option, reboot and go into BIOS and change your boot order ie have the CD drive as first boot option followed by your hard drive. Then try booting again with your XP disc in the cd drive.
You can change the language to English during a Repair installation but you may have to re-enter your serial number and activate again on-line again.
Cheers,
Steve

Hi i bought a Haier C600 laptop from China


Hi,
Underneath it all is a basic PC, so you simply need to go buy and english version of the operating system you want to use, and start up off that and do a fresh install. Make sure the OS is not an 'Upgrade' or 'Basic' version, and you should be good to go.
When you start up, watch the screen for the 'boot device' option (or similar) and choose the CD rather than hard drive, and the new OS will walk you through the install.
