Change computer from French to English and back on Acer Extensa 5220

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. She did not bring her manual and she forgot how to switch to English so I can troubleshoot any more problems (we had an earlier problem resolved here) 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 had Windows XP I possibly could do it even in French. She is totally non-technical and about all she can do is read and send emails and surf the web and (I assume) write papers for school.
Thank you I would appreciate any help, I do not think that this is a terrible difficult one. Thanks again.

    Thanks for trying, but the student has done it before and it does have keys that have EN and a button that says EN. So I know it can be done, she must have the correct version as she does speak English (just not technical English) and bought it to come to school here to improve her English. She just can not remember how to do it and left her User Manual in Benin. Thanks

My friend has an Acer laptop and when he put in the language he saw Canada listed and set his computer up in the French Language. Now he is Inuit and can only speak and read Inuktitut or English. How can...


Go to Google Translate and use it to translate from French to English. It is a translating application you can use to read the French setup on the computer. You'll need another computer to do the translation.

How can i factory set my acer extensa 5220


Hi,
To restore your laptop you need the restore cd/dvd that came with your laptop when you bought it.
Please be adviced that restoring your laptop will cause you to lose all your data. Backup any data you would like to keep, to an externad drive or usb.

To restore your laptop do the following:
Insert the restore cd in your cd/dvd drive and restart your computer.
When you see the message "Press any key to boot from cd" press enter.
Then follow the on screen instructions to restore your laptop.

The back cover of my Acer Extensa 5220 laptop is cracked


It would cost about $100-200 for parts.

That doesn't include the repair time. For me it would take about 10-15 minutes.

For a novice about 1-2 hours.

That's the jest of it.

New laptops $200-400 for decent rigs.
