Changing an english computer over to spanish

Hi my spanish friend recently purchased a new hp dv 6000 series lap top computer. we've tried everything we know how to do, been in the bios, and in the control panel, but we're only having a little success. Some of it is in spanish now but the majority is still in English. Oh it's running Vista.  can you tell me what we're doing wrong, please?
I so appreciate any help- karen Johnson

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.

also it may be possible to convert xp into another language. with some
Windows XP Multilingual User Interface (MUI)

I hear it costs money and I haven't used or tryed it.

How can I change the language on my laptop?


If you just want to change the keyboard and general language settings, you simply go to the Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Regional/Language settings and change your language.

If your friend installed the Turkish version of WinXP (i.E. all the alert boxes are in Turkish) and you want to modify it to another language - that's a totally different and more complex situation.

In order to change the whole system language you can install a newer service pack in a different Language or uninstall the last installed Service Pack and after changing the registry settings below Install it again.
!!!Make always a backup of your Registry first !

You have XP SP2 in Turkish and want to change your systmes language to English, you will have to download SP3 in English (link).
(You can change the language here to another one before the download.)
Then you will have to change some registry keys. (Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001ControlNlsLanguage Registry Key), and change the value for “Default” and “InstallLanguage” from 041F (Turkish) to 0409 (English).
Reboot and you'll be able to install SP3 in English.
If no problems occur, you will have the whole system language changed.
Here is the List of numbers that represents each language in the registry:
* 0436 = "af;Afrikaans"
* 041C = "sq;Albanian"

Resume:
1.Go to start
2. Press run
3. Type Regedit
4. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ go to "SYSTEM" \ go to "ControlSet001" \ go to "Control"\ go to "Nls" go to " languages"
5. Change the Default” and “InstallLanguage” (first and last in the list) to 0409 [for you.S english, for other codes look down in the thread],
6. Download and install Sp3 for xp in English
7. Restart computer.
8. Be happy for it works.

Change language setting from Spanish to English


I have been unable to sort this out! I am not tech savvy...however, I understand I need to obtain a Windows 6 OS in English! I´ve checked online for freedownloads & have yet to find! So many purchasers have this problem...not realizing there isn´t a language change setting prior to purchase! I´ve spoken directly to HTC with the issue of this little advertising omission!!! They blame Microsoft!!! I intend to speak to a lawyer friend. I think it´s deceitful marketing to some degree!

BTW...HTC also justified the language setting omission issue, advising me my HTC Touch is not a smartphone...not even a phone...it´s a PDA! PDA´s according to them, do not have language change settings!!! Do note however, HTC.com site does list the HTC Touch under Touch Phones in their Product window!!!

Thanks for the help! Happy Easter!

How to change hp pavilion dv6000 from german to english


If you want to change Operating System from one language to another one, there is only one way. You need install English version of the Operating System. You can change some regional settings (time, writing languague to make programs recognise it), but nothing you can do about whole system. Please obtain an English version of Windows (or Linux if this is your operating system) and make a new installation on your computer. Of course back up all you datas before doing so
