i got a new hp computer the other day & it was working fine until my dad did something & the whole computer turned to french , the icons , the display language, everything & i tried so many ways to change it back but it didnt work.
when i woke up the next day , my computer wouldnt let me log in when it did the other day.
it said something about my password & it displayed it, but ofcource i didnt understand because its in french when i need it to be in english.
i do not know what to do, any help would be appreciated.

Go here and translate your password http://translate.google.com/#en/fr/
Once your at the desktop, try a system restore point back a week or so.
restauration du système equals System Restore
To change your display language
When you change the display language, the text in menus and dialog boxes for some programs might not be in the language that you want. This happens because the program might not support Unicode. For more information about changing the text in menus and dialog boxes for programs that don't support Unicode, see Change the system locale.
If you want to set the display language for multiple users or for the Welcome screen, see Apply regional and language settings to reserved accounts.
Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.
Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.
