    Changing language [Korean to English]

    Hi!
    I'm not the best with computers and I tried to solve the problem myself, but
    failed...
    My dad bought me this TX series laptop [VGN-TX55L/W] from Korea. I want to
    change the language to English and I tried all of the suggestions, changing
    all the language settings to English, but everything is still in Korean!!
    Please help me!!!!!!!!
    Thank you~!

    Unless the laptop has Vista Ultimate Edition installed, you cannot change
    languages.

    The only way would be to purchase an English version of Vista and
    perform a clean installation. It's not possible to convert or upgrade
    from one language to another. (Unless you have the English version of
    Vista Ultimate, so that you can use the MUI feature.)

    I knew it would be a mistake to buy Windows Vista. I just didn't know when I
    was going to get that feeling. I'm really upset that SE Asian language input
    options are not available on Vista Premium. There was absolutely *NO*
    disclosure about that on the product comparisons on Windows ads. Under XP, it
    was really easy. Is there any way to exchange this Vista OEM for XP?
