Chinese language on new computer - Please help.

by mroberts42 / September 8, 2006 9:11 AM PDT

I am buying a new laptop for a high school student in China. I will have WIN XP as the operating system. I would like all of the software to be in Chinese. What do I need to buy to do this, or does XP allow installatin in the Chinese language?

your own operating system!!!!! (XP)

In this case you want to buy a ready to roll PC in Chinese, I don't suggest you go to Best Buy!!

Best bet would be to contact Dell, HP, etc. & tell them just what you want - It will be at your doorstep in a few days

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
