In what language it was originally installed??? you could try installing the FREE LANGUAGE PACK from microsoft... if it was originally installed in FRENCH or SPANISH, than you don't have a choice, (live with it or re-install Windows in the desired language)... sorry! On the other hand,If it was originally installed in ENGLISH than the language pack is installed, it's just a matter of reverting to the desired language...

Cheers!

I just bought a computer from a german shop and plugged it in and tried to set it up in english but it has not??


Dear carlee, I think you bought the system with windows. As you buy this in germany, the windows is loaded in german language. so it may not be changed from german to English. For this the must easy method is to format your PC and a load a new operating system. in time of loading choose the English and in future you would not face any problem on language as English will become the default language for your system.

Operating system in polish


Hi!

If you use Windows, you should reinstall the English Windows version to get english messages from Windows.
You should buy English Windows version from local computer shop.


If you look for a free alternative, you can install Linux, it is free, and you can easly downloadable from Internet.
I suggest the Ubuntu Linux. It can be download from this
web site:
http://www.ubuntu.com

Then write DVD or CD images boot you can install.

Change language to English


This might be a problem.. Windows controls the actual display language (thats the dialog boxes, the windows and all the screen messages you see).

If you have a german copy of windows it might be just german. That means you might NOT be able to change the display language to english.

IF you have what's called windows MUI you might be able to change the display language.

Ask the guy or company you bought it from if they have windows CD's. You're likely going to need them. See if by any remote chance you DO have Windows XP MUI (stands for multi user interface)

It's unlikely you do, but at least ask.


There are options to change the language but it's usually not for the display it's for spelling or how dates and the like appear.
