Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have 2 questions/problems. I have an international student from the French-speaking country of Benin who is staying with me in USA. She has an Acer Extensa 5220 with OS Vista basic. Her laptop is entirely in French and I need to connect her to my network which is SSID enabled but no WEP or WPA encription and her laptop refuses to connect to an unsecured network. I changed some settings on the Linksys router WRT160N. I found out that I need to change her settings. 1) She did not bring her manual and she forgot how to switch to English so I can change her settings. She is unable to translate (into English) sufficiently any technical computer terminology. We do not want to permanently change it into English but temporarily so I can help her with technical problems. I am a Window XP user so it makes it even more difficult for me to help her because I do not recognize where to navigate etc. If she Windows XP I possibly could do it even in French. 2)Is it possible to connect her to my unsecured network, we can see my network on her laptop. She feels that it will not do that but I read that it is possible. Thank you

I had a Chinese student with a Vista laptop so she could go through the steps below on her computer which was in Chinese and she translated from Chinese to English according to as what was on her laptop we assumed it was the same on the Vista computer in French.
1. Clicked on the Windows orb
2. Clicked on Control Panel.
3. Clicked on Network and Sharing Center.
4. Clicked on Manage wireless networks.
5. I highlighted my network and clicked on Remove. Then I fiddled around with it to find my network and forced it to connect it to my network. At least this is what I could tell because the owner of the laptop went out of town for a couple of days. Some words were close enough to English when I was messing arround. Well, it worked. I still need to know (for any later problems) how to switch her computer into English and back to French for when I have to troubleshoot another problem for her. She is totally non-technical and about all she can do is read and send emails and surf the web. And, I assume, can write papers on it for school. She is in a Masters program here in USA.

Introduction

Currently, majority of students leave their own country each year to study abroad and learn Professional skills or knowledge. The United Kingdom higher education is one of the main destinations for many of students. Some of international students regard stress because culture and educational system, which is very different from their own country (Kuh, et al., 1997). Pinel (2003) stated that stress a physiological response to potential threat. The negative impact of stressful life events, therefore, it generally can be regarded as a group of neurological and physiological reaction, the supply of the adaptive function (Franken, 1994, Benson and Stewart, 1992). According to Lazarus and Folkman (1984) the cause of the pressure, including the change of life, chronic stress, and environment of daily interactions is essentially negative trouble. Strongly irritating, frustrating, distressing requirements described in trouble in the characterization and the day-to-day transactions of the environment to some extent (Kanner, et al., 1981). Holmes and Rahe (1967) stated that, any change life, requires several adjustment, can be seen as a pressure. Chronic alleviate the pressure may cause the scourge of many different ways to different people on the psychological and physiological (Eshun, 1998; Goldman and Wong, 1997, Misra and McKean, 2000). International students may not be able to get rid of some degree of pressure or adjustment problems, do a culture shock. Culture shock is a normal reaction to change compared to, revolutionized the modifications made in the face of life, so its initial adjustment process is a strange environment (Pedersen, 1995).The adjustment can be defined as a social psychological concept, it does achieve harmony between the individual and the environment. This harmony is through personal knowledge, attitudes and emotions about his or her environment changes. This final satisfaction, feeling at home, in a new environment, improves performance, and increase interaction with the host (Hannigan, 1990). While, the general student pressure, the findings of the international students who are individuals, temporarily residing in a country other than the citizenship of other countries, to participate in the international educational exchange may experience extreme pressure , as a result of a higher level of culture shock, and if they cannot adjust to the new, challenging and diverse needs, they accept a high level of loneliness, depression and improve physical and mental health problems (Peterson, 1995; Paige,1990). Therefore, from different countries, they face in their daily lives with many difficulties, including looking for a place to live, to select bank deposits and withdraw money, and found buses, trams and trains. The pressure of the international students are with social support system, learning overload and different educational expectations (Sandhu, 1994), communication barriers, culture shock and loss. Students of different cultural backgrounds tend to evaluate their learning experience abroad as pressure (Mallinckrodt and Leong, 1992).


Research Aim

1- To identify the factors and influences Stress among International students during studies.

The research of hypothesis


The deficiencies of the existing literature on stress among international students, therefore, our hypothesis is that this is the basis of a new study on life history analysis and sees the trends in the stress for international students at in the United Kingdom during studies.

3-Research question

How could you describe Stress during studies?

How could you see stress?

Research Method

In this qualitative investigation a life history method was employed to explain Stress among international students in United Kingdom during studies. According to Haglund (2004) life history approach is conducive to the study of these phenomena, because the investigators collect the data for life, let him or her to explore a variety of different experiences and relationships, and to study changes over time. Life history provides an opportunity to consider a rich person, his or her life's important events and dynamic interaction between researchers and participants (Wiseman and Whiteford, 2007). Dollard (1935) note that, Life history Methodology can be described as a specific narrative to define the cultural environment for the growth of a human, the theoretical significance (P: 3). According to Newman (1997) the method is a life story reveals how life events affect individuals and how they are the significance of these events. Therefore, the accuracy of the story than the story itself is not very important. As an investigator, it is significant to know that people can rebuild or increase the current interpretation of the past, because they are constantly re- story on him (Kenyon and Randall, 1997; Neumann, 1997; Linde, 1993). The life history method is to collect rich narrative data. The narrative is defined as a set of stories, interviews, writing journals and other written documents, form a natural words derived from survey data sets (Depoy and Gitlin , 1998; Grbich, 1999). Yerxa (1967) states that, view each person's narrative or story-telling is essential, rather than as an object to be manipulated or control, however as a unique individual, very humane, they have the right to decide their own fate choice. According to Kenyon and Randall (1997) narrative, research data are consistent with the hypothesis, the most abundant resource, which means that humans have mastered in a lifetime accumulated many levels of the text. A history of life is a special design, and the use of life stories. Therefore, the life history of design assumptions on the nature of life is the idea of a group of stories included, mood and activity, we tell their own behaviour, about our past, present and future (Kenyon and Randall, 1997).




The general aim of this research is to analyse of the phenomena of Stress among international students in the United Kingdom during studies. Its results will contribute to the stress management programs, in order to cope with the pressure of international students face in their academic courses. Therefore, this study will put to life history methods is employed to explain an international student's life during studies in the United Kingdom. Moreover, Consent in this study, the life history interview was conducted with two international students who they are from Kurdistan. They spent about two years' time, they live in the United Kingdom to learn English Language and master's degree. Therefore, they are experienced studying abroad in a foreign country, they have stories.

I can't change from Japanese to French. Please,show me how . Thank you


To change the language to French;
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol on the bottom right corner of the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) This may take some trial and error if you don't speak Japanese but should be possible)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) on some models that don't have a settings menu)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD. Press each one in turn and select Francais. With the VOICE setting you may have to select a name rather than Francais. If so select the name of a person from a French speaking country.

I hope this solves your problem.
