  1. Title says it all. I tried windows update but no luck. When I see chinese characters they are all blank. When I search on google it gives me links to other websites that I don't trust.

    What version of XP are you running? XP Home or XP Pro? Obtain any CD of your model and go here:

    Control Panel - Regional and Language Options - Languages Tab

    Tick the 2 checkboxes and when you hit "Apply" you will be prompted to load the CD.
