I have a Z11WN, bought it in Italy and is running currently Vista Business. I ordered few weeks ago, Windows 7 Home Premium from Amazon.co.uk. Do you guys know if I will be able to upgrade without loosing my files? Or I will have to do a clean install, because the language of the actual OS is italian and the upcoming W7 is in english?
I'm using MAC os 10.6.1 and my MBP region is Russian(Ukraine) I want to set my default language in applications (to type - not menu language) as English. How to do it? For some reason all application start and change my Input Source to Russian every time.

When i will find a way to order a swiss-german language keyboard (not same than the german keyboard), then i could order my Notebook from anywhere, and do the work by myself, but have to fight with warranty trouble.
I can live with warranty trouble
Does someone have me an adress for ordering keyboards in other languages?
I work with Japanese language and need to use the East Asian language support that Windows provides. Is there anything similar in OS X? This is a really important think to me. by support, I don't just mean the fonts, but the whole keyboard + IME - writing characters and their recognition. All this is part of Windows East Asian support and works great for me.
I bought a new Mac just yesterday (my first time to switch from PC) believing that the East Asian Support in Macs will be equally if not better in OS X than Windows (given that Japan is a huge market for Macs and also that you can even order a Japanese keyboard when purchasing your computer). To my horror, however, I am now realizing that there's a feature where Windows outpeforms OS X, or what OS Xi is totally lacking;
IME Pad - i.e. in Windows when you switch to Japanese language keyboard you have an option to use your mouse to draw a kanji you are not familiar with (don't know its reading). You'll get a lit of options and can find thus a kanji extremely fast - no need for radical or stoke look-up. I've heard that OS X doesn't have this function - at least not 10.5. If that's true this would be a major drawback!
the only solution to this would be to use an internet interface such as this: Handwritten kanji search at sljfaq.org But this is way too cumbersome and requires internet access. how to use Japanese on Macs can respond.
I'm in a bit of a jiffie, my 1330 had some problems with overheating so I formatted but it turned out it was a piece of dirt stuck in the fan, anyways problem solved.
Now, I get the slowdowns again, albeit not that severe. Now, when I open hwmonitor it only shows my CPU, HDD and ACHP. The GPUs temp won't show up.
I installed ntune, nada, same thing. What could be the problem, is the temperature measuring thingy broken I'm kind of worried that my 8400m gs is dying on me since it was a pos to begin with but I really dont feel like sending in my laptop.
I have Pavilion dv7-4142eo bought and using in the Sweden. This laptop have Swedish Windows 7 installed. Now I want give this laptop my father which is living in the Poland and speaking Polish language only, so I have to install Windows Polish version. Should I install another drivers? If yes, drivers for Pavilion dv7-4140ew (only this version of dv7-4100 have drivers for laptops designed to Polish market) will be OK? Can I install Windows 8? Generally - what I should do?
I got myself a new laptop but it became french not english(didn't get to decide, wasn't there then), but I got the store i bought it from to put it into english. The problem is that when it was french there were more programs like gridvista, eye webcam etc. Now that it's english there none of those programs. So i'm wondering if I should do the eRecovery management thing, will it stay in english with the programs like the french one? or should i ask for recovery disks from acer and tell them my problem?... it's a acer 5920g/5920-6642 laptop...says both on my laptop.
when my xps m1530 is turned ON nothing displayed on display some times. i have to turn off and turn on a number of times to get it right. it happens often now. what is the reason??GPU issue?? LCD issue??
When i bought N7110 when i pressed the fn + sound up/down button(f11/f12) a little box would come up showing me what my current sound level is and dissapear after 3 secs or so. But doesn't happen anymore. The buttons still change the sound but the box doesn't show up. This happens with all of the fn functions like f2(wireless settings), mute button, f4 f5 (brightness), f3(touchpad on off). They all work but they dont show up. So if i want to close bluetooth i need to do it blindly by pressing f2 + fn a few times to finally get it.
I had a quick look at Disk Management on my new Vostro 5470, and there are not less than 7 partitions displayed over there.
The laptop has a SSD of 128GB installed. I know that GPT hard drives require several partitions (to be specific, I know only about ESP, MSR and data partitions only) - but 7? My data partition has only 99GB available. That surely isn't a lot.
I know that some sort of Intel recovery is installed, and I know that the Dell diagnostics is installed somewhere too.
I have a inspiron 1521 that i have been having problems with. It's an older laptop.
When i turn on the power, nothing is displayed on the screen. When i hold fn+power I get 2 flashing lights and one solid. The num lock and cap lock flash. I don't really know what this means. I have also done a BIST and the laptop seems to pass this just fine. (Different colors flash on the screen). I have tried removing ram 1 at a time but it always blinks the same lights. Could this be a problem with the motherboard?
My son has a Dell Inspiron 1545 ... The problem with its is, that it receives power into the unit but nothing is displayed onto the screen and therefore, nothing shows or happens. I know that the unit is receiving power due to the fact that I can open the Disk Drive. I have attempted the flea start without any success.

I have dell inspiron N5050 laptop and it is under warranty. Recently i formatted it to upgrade my system from 32 bit os to 64 bit os. After formatting, I am not able to access my desktop and a blue screen is displayed that says:
