Acer 7720 Hello: When first starting to use the unit, I accidentally clicked on setting it up in the French language. How can I go back to the very first step and change it to "speak" to me in English? Thanks. Les

    Hi Mike:

    The laptop is talking to me in French and has gone through the Set Up portion of the Boot. I shut down the power, even after being warned by the machine "not" to do so. I panicked when I realized what I had accidentially done & just wanted to stop further installation (start up) in the French Language. I keep getting the same "error message" in French when trying to let the laptop continue to boot-up for the veery first time. The boot-up language is in English and I have not been able to get past this redundent error message. I have clicked on "OK" several times and the same thing continues to occur. I looks like it is trying to install Windows Vista and boot-up ... but when it goes along for a bit, that same error continues to appear. Another advisory message, in English, says "Preparing to Boot OS."

    Much thanks ... but still stuck.

A Customer Service person at Acer (Off shore, of course) has promised to mail a "restore disk" to me which he claims will fix my problem.

My first contact with a CS Rep. at Acer was not the most positive ... or anything remotely close to that. I was chastized significantly and we argued much of the time. The only positive portion of the 30+ minute conversation was getting the laptop registered in my name!

I hope the disk will resolve my issue?

Chose french windows instead english windows by accident and need to change it

Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region and then clicking Regional and Language Options.
Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.
Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.
Obviously you'll have to work out the French equivalents of the options but should be fairly obvious

You can change some language settings in Control Panel/Regional/Languages, but the toolbars and others will stay in French.
It's a great chance to learn French !
The retailer may be able to help you-take it back and ask.
