I would suggest a fresh installation of windows software in that language.

But I just found out that this may also be possible without a new installation read here

I have a Spanish computer with XP on. My problem is that this is obviously in Spanish and I want to change to English. Do I have to buy new software?


To change the default language on your computer, goto the control panel - Regional and Language Options. You will need to make changes on all three tabs- Regional Options, Languages & Advanced. Changing the defaults to English on each of these tabs will change most programs to the default language of the system settings. You will need to reboot your computer for these changes to take affect. Please be aware that the default language is changed for all users of the computer.
Some specialized programs that were installed may have to be reinstalled if all the languages were not installed by default, but overall you should not have any problems.

Changing Computer Language to English in Windows XP If you bought your computer with Windows XP in some other language set as default, you need not worry. You can always change it using the Control Panel. English, along with several widely used languages, is present in almost all Windows XP installations. You only need to set it up so that your copy of Windows XP works with English.
The following steps explain how to change computer language to English in Windows XP.
1. Open Control Panel and double click on the Regional and Language Options icon.
2. In the first tab, Regional Options, select English (US), English (UK), or any other English (there are many versions of English pre-loaded) as per your wish. The option is available in the first drop down list under Standards and Formats (see Fig 1). You may also click the Customize button next to the drop down to customize the format of date, time, currency etc.
3. Click on the next tab, Languages and then click the button labeled Details. In the Text Services and Input Languages dialog box, you can see all the installed languages. Select English in the list of available languages under Default Language Settings (Fig 2).
4. To create a keyboard shortcut for switching among installed languages, use the Key Settings under Preferences (Fig 3). Please note that you can also use the Language bar to switch among languages. Click OK to close the dialog box.
5. To set English as the default language for the particular user account, click on the Advanced tab of Regional and Language Options dialog box. Make sure English is being displayed in the drop down box and check the last option in the dialog box (See Fig 4).
6. Click OK to close the dialog box and logoff for the settings to take effect.
Though this is the most common method used to change the computer language to English in Windows XP, it only changes the GUI and sometimes creates problems with few applications such as Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. If you are facing such problems, you can download MUI patches from MS download center.
NOTE: The above method is often considered as a temporary solution when you have to use different languages. To change the computer language to English in Windows XP so that it has a system wide affect, it is recommended that you perform a fresh install of Windows XP and select English when prompted for language during installation. Later, you may install other languages as required.

My probook 4510s is set up with US keyboard, how can I change it to UK setting?


hi

  • Right-click on the taskbar and click on "Toolbars."
  • Step 2 Click on "Language bar." If this option doesn't appear on the menu, you only have one language on your computer. Refer to the steps in Section 2 to add languages to your computer. If you have to add "English (United Kingdom)," you may have to restart your computer before you can change the keyboard layout.
  • Step 3 Click on "Input language."
  • Step 4 Select "English (United Kingdom)" from the list of languages.
  • Step 5 Click on "Keyboard layout" and select the "English (United Kingdom)" keyboard layout and apply the changes.
    Add Languages to Your Computer
  • Step 1 Click on the "Start" icon.
  • Step 2 Click on "Control Panel."
  • Step 3 Click on "Clock, Language, and Region."
  • Step 4 Click on "Regional and Language Options."
  • Step 5 Click on the "Keyboards and Languages" tab and click on "Change keyboards..."
  • Step 6 Click on "Add..." in the "Installed Services" section.
  • Step 7 Select "English (United Kingdom)" on the list and check each of the entries under "Keyboard" and "Other," and then click on "OK" to close the menu.
  • Step 8 Click on "Apply" and "OK" to add "English (United Kingdom)" to your computer.

    I accidentally changed the language on my monitor how do i change it back to original settings


    If you need to change the OSD language for the monitor, press Menu (the rest of the buttons will light). Then press Main Menu and select Advanced (it is the second from the bottom) Press Choose and then Select. The line to change the language, go to the second line (from the top), use the Adjust button to scroll through the available languages. Press Back to return to a previous menu; press Menu Off to exit.

    If the language change was in the OS of the computer, it will depend on OS. In Windows, the Control Panel is the starting place. Then Clock, Language, and Region. The Region and Language area will have a keyboard language and display language (if multiple languages are installed) tabs in Win7. (The older versions of Windows are similar.)

    I hope this helps.
