New Laptop

Post by Turkeytop » Sun Jan 27, 2019 7:09 pm

The old Acer was just getting too old and too slow. It was useless. Yesterday I got a new Dell. When I was setting it up last night it brought up a menu listing all countries and asked me for mine. I didn't know what to say. I'm living in the U.S. right now but my home is in Canada. I finally chose Canada.

That was a mistake. It made my keyboard a French keyboard. After a couple of hours, I figured out how to change it to English. But now, every time I shut down or restart the computer, it defaults back to French and I have to fix it all over again.

Thanks, but Acer was the old computer. The new one is Dell.
