    Changing a laptop from Russian to English?!?!

    So.... asking all you tech people for advice once again :-)

    I've bought a laptop - hp envy - it was originally bought in Russia (the seller was very honest about that), however I thought it would be pretty simple to reinstall & change from Russian to English. .... but I'm struggling!!!

    Since I can't understand the Russian options that come up when I rebooted it, pleeease does anyone know a way to reinstall on English?

    its running 8.1 if that makes a difference?

    Thanks again & happy new year year HUKD'ers

    Japanese to English, but the process is the same (i.e. click on the relevant area of the screen whatever the language.

    you could type the russian into a translator to english to see what they are?
    you could post a pic so someone on here may be able to work it out?

    if you have a smart phone try google translator or world lense... they can translate from visuals or pictures..

    Post a print screen and I can have a look.
    Failing that a Russian girlfriend? Lol

    It sounds like you're not even booting into Windows and are instead seeing three options in the pre-boot stage (black background, white writing), is that correct?
