Question about Computers & Internet
Laptops sold in Canada, to meet bilingual requirements, usually came with two factory images for doing the system installation after purchase with one image for french and one image for english. Installation begins with the user selecting either french or english and once selected, the installation process deletes the factory image for the language that was not selected. So doing a restore of the system to its factory image will not change the language from what was initially chosen and installed. If your laptop has a CD/DVD drive, the manufacturer may have supplied system installation disks or they may be available for purchase in which case the disks for both french and english would likely be provided. Finally, regardless of the language, it is still possible in windows to customize settings for the display of languages, numbers, times and dates. In Windows XP, this is done by clicking on Regional and Language Options under the Control Panel.

The method used depends on the version of Windows you are running.
You can right click on the task bar (where the running programs are shown along with the start button) and choose Toolbars... ' Language Bar. The language bar will now be shown, and you can click this, choose settings ' Add... and choose English.
If the language bar option is not available, and you are running Windows XP, open control panel and choose "Options régionales et linguistiques". From here, choose the second tab and down at the bottom there is an option to change to English. It will ask you to logout (it may be in French) so click OK and when you log back in you should be set to English.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, open control panel and choose "Options régionales et linguistiques". From here, choose the third tab and there is a button to install/uninstall languages.
Please post back if you have more questions.
