Weekend Funny

A few months ago, a family friend bought a laptop and now has no use for it. He had originally bought it as a gift for someone but that person ended up already having a similar laptop and to make a long story short, I ended up having the laptop in question.

So, I am now the owner of a shiny new acer aspire one however, there is one small problem.

The entire computer is in French.

Luckily, I do have a fairly decent understanding of the language and so, I proceeded to try and play around with the language settings but to no avail.

It turns out the entire operating system is in French and needed a full system recovery to solve the problem. After having done this, the computer was still opening up in French but it was at least decent enough to ask me what language I communicate in most of the time.

I obviously chose "English" to which it said, "d'accord!" and continued speaking to me in French...

*forehead slap*



  1. Oh funny! I def giggled when I read this! I am sure it is frustrating, though! I hope you figure it out!

  2. Hahahaha! Oh, technology! Gotta love it!

    That would be so frustrating!

  3. maybe you can take it into one of those computer geniuses and they can fix it for you? because even though I understand basic German, I sure wouldn't want my computer system operating in it! :)


leave me a little love note! I really look forward to hearing from you
