1.Click the Start button Picture of the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update.

2.Click Check online for updates from Microsoft Update, and then wait while Windowslooks for the latest updates for your computer.

3.If any updates are found, click Optional updates are available

4.Under Windows Vista Ultimate Language Packs, select only the language pack that you want (installing all of them might take up too much space on your drive.

 

5.follow the instructions and go to the Windows Update site to download the English display language. The language pack should be available in the optional downloads.

Of course. As long as your notebook has a qualifying version of Windows it is an option. It would have been convenient if you had stated which version of Windows is installed in the notebook.

You cannot change your os language if it's not Ultimate or Enterprise. Operating systems that comes with HP products includes 2 different language packs. If you wanna change it into english, you need to perform a system recovery and you'll see the the language selection. If that does not work, try creating recovery dvd and do a restore to original settings which will erase all the files and partitions you've ever created.

I feel like asking for thumbs up after I tell you to mark my post as Kudos if it solves your problem.

Sorry, but that is not quite accurate. Research it a bit further.

 

The commonly delivered configuration for the notebook in question was Windows Vista Home Premium. That version of Windows does indeed qualify for display language changes with either the LIPS or MUI packs.

 

The orginal author never did state which operating system was installed.

Hello Erico,

 

According to the MS articles, installing a LIP on any kind of Windows version depends on what language pack you're installing. For example, you have to obtain an ultimate or enterprise version of Win7 in order to install LIPs. I've found it on a Turkish KB, it'd be useless to share the link on here. 

 

 FYI.
