Well, you cannot change the language... It's nearly impossible!! You want english, just install a new windows which is already configured in english!!!

Hi I have a Sony viao laptop brought in France and its in french but I want to change it to English. What can I do to change it? If I take it to a computer shop will they be able to do it or is it fairly simple process? If so what programs etc do I need to purchase? Thanks
No chance...I bought a new SONY VAIO laptop from FNAC as well. It has Vista Home Premium pre-installed on it. I am now told that it is impossible to change the display language and that I have to re-install a new version of Vista with English.

Bad luck mate...Ce'st la vie...
i have the same problem like Uchilled... and in my case I don't have any CD's for the laptop.. will it be alright if I format it? will I recover all my existing software?

I have the same problem. I have a brand new notebook with Hungarian Vista Premium - according to Microsoft I can only download change to English if I download the Vista Ultimate for 140 Euro. Go to the Microsoft site.

all the best.
P.S I just confirmed this, read the same in Microsoft's own Forum.
Did you manage to change language to English on your Vista Pack, I have the same problem.
I teach IT Managers, they all said the same thing as I have read everywhere else. To change your Vista to English you must upgrade to Vista Ultimate - I suppose we could easily go straight to the source and get the same answer.


I have the same problem dut my laptop is in italian...I don"t know if is any transformasion pack...or interface something:((
I am afraid if I take your vistalizator to not be a virus or somethink...becouse I read a message< you give me a virus,go to hell>
dont be worry of vistalizator
