Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

Acer One 10" XP ... all in French

\015 Help ... I'm told I screwed up when I first turned on my new computer and now everything including XP is in French ... Acer helpline said they were sending me a 'recovery' disc (10 days ago) but its supposedly on back order ... I've only got 30 days to decide if I'm going to return the notebook and the clock is ticking ... There must be an easy to reset to factory specs and start over !!!\015

Answers :

These multi-lingual operating systems only give you the option to choose the language once -- the languages that are not chosen get deleted from the HD. System recovery won't give the language choice back. You will have to contact Acer's customer support and request the installation disks. You will then need an USB optical disk reader, boot from USB and re-install from scratch. Alternatively, your computer store might do the re-imaging for you for a fee (they should already have the disks).
I'm not a computer expert but the aspire one has a recovery program loaded onto it already. If you click on the start button then move your mouse over to were the programs button if you click on the second program option down (the one underneath the "accessories") then click on that program it should be something called empowering techonology (might look like "autorisation de la technologie" - courtesy of babelfish). When the program opens up (in my aspire one its a blue window) if you click the top option (just scroll your mouse over it) that is "restore system to factory default". I believe you will probably have to do the whole select language etc over again and hopefully fix your laptop. Good luck.
