Question about Acer Aspire 8920-6048 Notebook

1 Answer

Will Reinstalling a different version of Vista give me problems?

I bought an aspire 8920 preloaded with a French version of Vista. Since I am an English speaker I would like to reformat the machine with an English language version. Will this create big driver problems for me? If so how can I overcome them? Acer gave me no back up disks. I have backed up the computer as instructed but with the French version.

Start menu... control panel ....look for an icon that looks like a globe and a clock.... the second choice on that menu is change display language... you may have to download the english language pack tho it may be automatic.

How do I change from French keyboard?


Start / Settings / Control Panel / Regional and language options, check you have the language you want in there, then remove the additional (French) language.

This assumes you're running Windows XP. Vista or Windows 7 will be similar.

Change language from french to english on acer 1 laptop


If you wish to change the language you must download a Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI). Unfortunately such is only supported by Vista Enterprise and Vista Ultimate, so as a Home Premium user there is nothing you can really do unless you are willing to either upgrade to Ultimate or purchase an English copy.

Unless you have Vista Ultimate or Enterprise, you'd have to
purchase and install an French version of Vista. MUI (Multilingual

  1. Open your Control Panel
  2. If in Classic View, click Control Panel Home in upper-left corner
  3. Under Clock, Language, and Region, click Change keyboards or other input methods
  4. Click Change keyboards
  5. Click Add
  6. Scroll down to English (United States)

  8. Choose United States-International
  9. Click OK in each dialog window.
  10. Read Using the international keyboard (above) and, if necessary, Troubleshooting the international keyboard (below).

Changing language


Hello
You cant change your language on your laptop true control panel, you need to reformat your laptop in the English language. the options in control panel is just for your regional settings and keyboard settings and so on.

only OS that you can change language in is the Vista Ultimate and then you need to install a language pack.

Language


Though Windows Vista has multilingual capabilities, you cannot change the language in
which the toolbars,etc are displayed. If you have a French user interface
then nothing you do will turn it into English. Your only option is to buy an
English version of Vista and then do a clean install.
