I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Recently I bought a Dell notebook in China. Windows 10 (version 1511) was pre-installed in it. System language is Chinese. Before buying, I thought, I would be able to change the system language easily from Chinese to English by installing the language
pack. But, unfortunately it did not work. I don't know the Chinese language. How can I solve the problem?

On the last night of Win Pro being available at I got a question about changing the operating system language of a computer fitted with Chinese Win PRC to English Unfortunately I had done my own last-minute purchase and download of Win in English here in China and had gone to bed you Chinese change PRC Can to Win 8 English? I'm so sorry about this because I got a lot of help at this Can you change Chinese Win 8 PRC to English? forum on the same night My computers were bought mostly Can you change Chinese Win 8 PRC to English? outside of China The reason was that it's quite difficult to turn Win PRC or Win PRC pre-installed on a locally bought PC to English In China most new PC's are sold with the basic version not the Professional or Ultimate versions of Windows pre-installed This means you have a big problem You can't change the O S language to English Windows PRC can be superficially set to English But Chinese will pop up at every corner when using the machine The quot core quot O S language remains Chinese quot English-speaking quot PC's with Can you change Chinese Win 8 PRC to English? Windows as O S cost about less in Hong Kong than in the PRC for the same computer model A second-class overnight return train ticket between Shanghai and Hong Kong costs around An English Windows DVD in a box might cost you around in China Through shops in the Computer quot Markets quot Plaza's Bazaars you can buy a genuine English Win OEM version for around - The best thing is to travel to Hong Kong to buy your new computer or -- for much the same money -- get someone to install a Win or Win OEM English version of the O S in China itself When I last inquired Win OEM on disks was not available yet The question remains what happens when you buy and start to download an English version of Win on a new machine fitted with Win PRC inside China or elsewhere If this is possible it would be one more way apart from going to Hong Kong or going to your local Chinese quot Market quot for an OEM disk to pay a premium of Another mystery question is whether the Product Key of your Win PRC will activate an English version of the O S if you could somehow get hold of that I'm curious what would happen if you applied you Win PRC product key to a cracked English version of Win something that will certainly be tried here in China Who knows the answers to these questions

Hello and Welcome to TSF

You can try changing windows default language

The Regional options will change language but will not change the XP's fundamental menus, windows, start menu. You may have to buy the English version of Windows XP if you want it all in English, Windows itself is not multi-lingual, it comes in specific language versions. Did you recieve any cds when purchasing this?

Hi folks,

Can I change the captioned OS displaying Chinese on tool bars, icons etc.

Having played around on "Regional and Language Options" without result. I found I can't "tick" "Apply all settings to the current user account and to the default user profile" permanently. After -> Apply -> OK -> reboot, it unticked this item.
IIRC it is possible. I did it about 9 years ago when WinXP was first released. Any advice? TIA

Hi,

I am using windowsXP and my laptop is IBM R50e.

I wish to change the settings in Control-Panel/Regional & Languages/Advanced/chinese PRC, but after selecting this option and pressing ok, the system prompt me to reboot, and after rebooting, it would ask me to choose "start windows Normally" or "Last known good configuration" etc.. etc. When I choose start windows normally, the system will reboot and ask me the same question again. However if I choose "Last known good configuration" then the system will bring me to windows, however if I choose this option being "Last known good configuration", then I doubt the new settings will take effect.

What must I do so that I can successfully change the settings to Control-Panel/Regional & Languages/Advanced/chinese PRC.

Thanks
 

A:Solved: windowsXP-cant change settings to Control-Panel/Regional & Languages/Advanced/chinese

If you have a Full Operating System on CD then you can try this:

1. Configure the computer to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. For information about how to do this, see your computer documentation, or contact your computer manufacturer.
2. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
3. When you receive the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
4. When you receive the "Welcome to Setup" message, press R to start the Recovery Console.
5. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you have to use from the Recovery Console.
6. When you are prompted, type the administrator password, and then press ENTER (if none was set, leave it blank and press ENTER).
7. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /list, and then press ENTER. The entries in your current Boot.ini file appear on the screen.
8. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER. This command scans the hard disks of the computer for Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows NT installations, and then displays the results. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to add the Windows installations to the Boot.ini file. For example, follow these steps to add a Windows XP installation to the Boot.ini file:

a. When you receive a message that is similar to the following message:
Total Identified Windows Installs: 1
[1] C:\Windows
Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All)
Press Y hit ENTER.

b. When, you receive a message that is similar to the following message:
Enter Load Identifier
This is the name of the operating system. Type the name of your operating system, and then press ENTER. The name is either Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.

c. When you receive a message that is similar to the following:
Enter OS Load options
Type /fastdetect, and then press ENTER.

Take the CD out of the drive.

Type exit then press ENTER.

Note: The instructions that appear on your screen may be different, depending on the configuration of your computer.

Does anyone know if this is possible? To be clear I am not talking about display language or input language as there are many posts about this.

Currently my settings are as I want them:

Display language : English
Input language : English (United States) - French
Format : English (United Kingdom)
Location : France

I did a clean install from USB (upgrade from OEM Win 7 Ultimate). My language was reset to French - probably as the original Win 7 machine was bought in France. I have changed the input/display to English but whenever I install software (today GoogleDrive, Dropbox, Lenovo drivers) the language picked up is the system language.

Is it possible to change this?

Hi,

I've Googled this problem but am getting conflicting views on how to solve this problem. I bought a laptop in Paraguay, with Windows 7 Pro pre-installed. I thought this would be handy and it was cheap as chips so bought it. Little did I know changing the language from Spanish to English would be such a chore. Is there a simple trick I'm missing?

I can get by but it would be so much easier to have it all in English. For instance, I just tried to put my camera's SD card in to the slot and it came up with an error message that I couldn't even read!

A:Need to change language from Spanish to English

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Your easiest way round your problem would be a Windows Anytime Upgrade from Windows 7 Professional to Windows 7 Ultimate, which would give you access to 34 language packs via Windows Updates.

http://emea.microsoftstore.com/UK/en...nytime-Upgrade

Obviously, you'll need to choose your region before you make your purchase, but all it involves is buying a new product key, which is then e-mailed to you.

Then it's Start>All Programs>Windows Anytime Upgrade and follow the instructions to enter your new product key.

Wait half-an-hour or so and it's job done.

If IE7 is like IE6, the answer is you cannot, just for this one application.

The only language related options is via:

And you have to download the optional languages you want supported.

Hello. I'm an American living in Saudi Arabia. I just bought a Toshiba ultra book. It is very sleek and nice. But everything shows up in Arabic when I use Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. The default language in the control panel is already in English. The location is USA. The desktop is in English. But browsing is all in Arabic. I don't want it to translate...I want all the browsing to be in English. HELP!

I come accross this all the time.

My clients have machines in other languages than English.

I can change language settings once operating system is in English....

But how to change it when the language is NOT English TO English.

I can do this by looking at icons and guessing my way around, but it's a pain in the ass...

Isn't there a way to do this via command prompt?

Get straight to the point and change it to English bypassing all drop downs and GUI in foreign language?

Any help or infos appreciated, thanks.

A:Libretto W100-D10 - Change OS language from Italian to English

Hi

As far as I know the Win 7 Home Premium was preinstalled on this notebook.
The OS language cannot be changed in Home Premium version.
Only the Enterprise and Ultimate editions support the Multilanguage pack.

So wither you would install a English version of the Win 7 Home Edition on your W100 or you would upgrade the Home Premium to Enterprise or Ultimate version and then you would install the English language pack

First you have to install this: (Choose English in the drop down menu) http://www.microsoft.com/industry/pu...e/default.aspx

which is an LIP.

Then go to control panel, click on regional and language options. Then click on the keyboards and languages tab. On that there should be a list of display languages that you can install or something saying install display language. Choose English and install it. Then choose English on the Display Language menu. Hit ok and restart if necessary.

A:run XP in both chinese and english on the same machine

Yes - you can switch between languages. For example, you can install an English version of XP along with Chinese language support files (if you wish) and vice-versa. However, when talking system menus/dialogs, the language displayed will depend on the version of XP. Eg. - Chinese version of XP, menus display in Chinese; the reverse is also true.

I have to guess at everything and as yet have been unable to get back to the page where one changes the language. Even if I could figure it out, it would still be in Chinese. Grrrr!

Hello lansehudie, Welcome to TSF!

This is what I think you are trying to achieve....

It would be wise to print these instructions for future reference.

Please Note: These instructions presume that the "Classic View" is being used in the Control Panel.

1: Go, Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Advanced > scroll down and tick the box for the specific language you need to install.
(You will need to insert the Windows? XP SP2 CD to install the selected fonts.)

2: Once the fonts are installed, click on Languages > Details > Add > now repeat the selection of the particular language required > OK.

3: Next, click Key Settings > create a keyboard shortcut to alternate between the two languages > Apply > OK.

Cancel out of the Control Panel; remove the CD and reboot the computer, for the changes to take effect.

This should now give you an "English" Keyboard with the alternative of "Chinese" Language options, with the use of the Keyboard Shortcut that has been created.

Please post back with the results.

I want to reformat a laptop that is bought from my father abroad. But sadly I don't understand what it says, I just want to make it boot CD/USB first. But its giving me hard time. And also, It won't the desktop. I mean when it starts, and when the Login window appear. Everytime I try to login, it will just show the background and the sound. But after a few seconds, it will logoff back. Maybe its because when I try to use the anti-virus Avast during startup and the laptop suddenly lost its power. (I forgot to charge it) Maybe thats the cause, because I pick "Delete all" whenever it finds a virus. And this virus named "virot" keeps on popping everytime it scans a .exe file. Thats the reason why I want to reformat this laptop.

Btw, here are the pictures I want to translate to english.

Ok this is only an Idea, and I will test it as soon as my 7106 is downloaded, but for now, if someone of you have 7077 and 7106, here my Idea:

Windows himself has no Language since Vista!
on the install DVD there are the language folders,
for english
-\sources\en-us\ -\boot\en-us\
and the file
-\sources\lang.ini

so copy the english language from 7077 to the one of 7106 and replace the lang.ini

try to install


I think, it can work, because of the development do not change a lot from the language side, but more from the system itself.

A:turn 7106 chinese in English, Idea!!

actually build 7106 chinese is not the geninue release i guess!!!

its a well made tweak with build 7077 or earlier!!!

Ok i can view chinese fonts correctly like webpages and emails, but when i download a chinese program which is originally chinese (simplified or traditional) all the characters are just garbage.
I have already installed fonts via control panel, but chinese programs just dont display correctly, is there a way to fix this.
 

A:How can i view chinese programs on a english xp computer correctly

As far as I know, there is nothing you can do about it aside from getting the Chinese version of XP.

I have heard that Vista will be able to switch the user interface to various languages, but XP (as far as I know) can not do this.

Note: the opposite in XP works fine. If you have Chinese XP, you can install ANY English software no problem. XP chinese version is built on top of the English version so all English software works. But the English version has no idea what Chinese characters are, and just messes them all up.

Hello all -

I am trying to do a Windows 7 reinstall from my Samsung Recovery disk, as I have a Samsung laptop. I have received the infamous "windows could not format a partition on disk 0...Error code: 0x80070057" error. Through researching this forum it seems the diskpart program is used to troubleshoot. However, the program only displays English from the command lines or numbers (i.e. - 465 GB). Everything else is displayed as Chinese or Japanese characters. Is there a way to change the language to all English? Thanks.

A:Diskpart not in English. Displaying Chinese or Japanese characters

Hello richarmb Welcome to the Seven Forums!

With a factory recovery disk that should automatically reformat and reOS the drive for you. That works along with the hidden recovery partition to bring everything back to how you saw the preinstall when first buying the laptop.

Since the manufacturer is actually South Korean with a US product and support site. Samsung - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia the default language for non user items would be in the native language and unfortunately not flexible like adding language packs onto Windows itself. You're dealing with hard copy media not an OS already install in that sense.

The only option for a clean install with an English version of the Disk Part tool would be borrowing someone else's 7 dvd and then entering the key on the sticker itself. But you shouldn't even be needing Disk Part with any factory restore option.

While under Chinese input method (traditional, bopomofo), the system automatically turns what I am typing into English--when the keys I press don't actually make up any word in Chinese. i.e. the input method (as shown on the start bar) stays in Chinese bopomofo, but when it detects that I am not typing Chinese (or rather, when I am trying to type Chinese but accidentally press the wrong keys), the input turns to English instead.
I do remember turning on this feature (somewhere in control panel?) but I haven't been able to find the same page now that I want to turn the feature off. It applies to anything I type on this laptop and not just a particular app.
Where can I find the option to turn this feature off? Thanks.
p.s. I'm on windows 10

Got text on my Lumia 520 from my sister's Samsung Galaxy 3 weeks ago in Asian characters. She said it happened to her coworker weeks ago. I re-booted phone. Tonight, 3 texts from a friend's iPhone, then 1 from my sister. Online translator can't translate. These are sent in English and arrive on my phone in Asian, perhaps Chinese. Again after re-boot tonight. What do I do?

Out of all of the Chinese Browsers that I have tried... mostly all of them are really nothing more than replicated features and a new browser name.

You'd be better off getting a better alternative (that isn't Chinese) of course.​

Hi there

for developing purpose i need the ctrl+space shortcut. unfortunately it is already used by windows itself to switch to the chinese input language. i already deactivated all keyboard layouts except the one i need and deactivated all "Hotkeys for input language" but the chinese language still appears in the language bar (and ctrl+space still switches to it).
and it seems that i can not install/unistall any language packs because i am using the home premium version of windows.
so what to do? how can i get rid of the chinese language, that i do not use anyway!

hope someone can help!

Hi there,

I am learning a different language and want to be able to type in it plus enter characters on my on-line course. I would also like to see the keyboard layout so I know how to get the special characters. Is this possible? And if it's really obvious, apologies for being thick...

Well I am sure someone has asked this before but I have found multiple different answers and want to be sure not to mess up my system.

We moved to Germany about 5 months ago and we were in need of a new laptop. Without thinking twice I went down to the computer store and picked on up with Vista Home Premium. Never thinking that I would not be able to switch it to English without and issue. Well no I have an issue

Here is what I have found. Both of these websites claim to either have the LIP or an easy way to convert without VISTA Ultimum. Can someone verify for me that these sites are valid and it will not place a virus on my system.

Windows Vista Language Interface Packs (LIP)
and/or
Vistalizator - change display language in Vista Home and Business

Thank you,
Phwah

A:English Language

LIP is trustable, but they don't have an English LIP, which is ******** in my opinion.

I wouldn't trust anything to change languages in Home Premium or Business, because there has to be SOMETHING wrong with it.

Hi,
I have recently installed the microsoft IME support for simplified chinese. Generally this application works well for me, that is it works in all office applications(Word,Excel, etc). However this is not the case for most other applications(eg. Messenger, Winamp, ICQ). What happens is that the field in the language bar, in the lower left of the screen, where i can choose between the different languages simply does not show up whenever i am not in one of the office programs.
I have had a look at all the different mails abt this topic but i couldn't find any real help there
Please let me know if you have any clue how to do this!
Michael

A:Disabling Chinese language.

Hello:

You can change keyboard shortcuts in Control Panel -> Region and Language -> click on the "Keyboards and Languages" tab -> click "Change keyboards..." -> click on the "Advanced Key Settings" tab.

Simply click on "Change Key Sequence..." and disable or change it.

(language, not people) from did reload the entire machine from scratch after language problems on the first day of ownership and changed some unknown-to-me settings Mostly everything works just fine with little evidence of the Chinese language The problem is that some programs are still installing in Chinese and it is a major pain to correct them when you can't read the words Two examples are AVG Free and CrashPlan Pro I would like to make sure that everything on my computer points to US English so that I don't have to deal with this forever So after doing some more research I came across the Region and Language settings box Format Location and Default Input Language settings All of these were changed to English before I had the installation problems Does anybody know where else I can look Somehow certain programs still think that I want to read in Chinese Thanks
