    i have a friend with a PC he bought from a dutch friend. this means that the language of the OS is in dutch. now it wasnt a problem since he only used it for web access, but now he's getting an error msg which he cant understand.

    i was just wondering if its possible to change the actual OS language.

    Hey Fergal, did you sort this out? Cant this be changed from within the Control Panel using the Regional Language options?

    Sorry Fergal but I think that unless the original cd was a multilingual version (and you have the cd) you're screwed and are stuck with having to learn dutch.

    well from my experience with a broadband customer I had earlier this year...he had Win XP in Swedish!!! and since he didnt know how to read it back in English (which I thought was odd if he is Swedish) I told him he'll have to find a way to change it to English as there was no where to change it in the Regional Settings...funny thing is I dont think he had one. but I reckon you should be able to but like Nugg says without the original CD you're done for....
