New postPosted: Sun Jul 06, 2014 8:15 am 

Hi everyone, i need some help please
I have a PC running Windows 7, i bought it in Spain, so the operating system is in Spanish.
Is it possible to change it to English ? and change the Keyboard ?
I was told at the shop that this is not possible...
Any help would be appreciated

It is possible if you're running Windows 7 Ultimate

It's possible to use English with any version of Win7 - if you have the English language pack installed.
Win7Ult and Win7Ent are the only two versions of Win7 'officially' supported by MS for 'all' language packs.
Start > Control Panel > Region and language > Keyboards and Languages tab > Change keyboards - See what's installed (most probably only Spanish - which is why you got a 'No').
If you go to MS's language site, you will find English is supported by 'any edition'.
Caveat: Not all of the user interface is translated. The parts of the user interface that aren't translated into the LIP (Language Interface Package) language are still displayed in the parent language.
