I bought a German Sony vgc v2s pc from ebay. The seller told me I would be able to change the language settings to English. It wont work. I therefore tried the recovery disc but it is of course in German and doesnt offer English as the default language. What should I do????????????

You were misinformed. you can only change the input language (ie stuff you type with the keyboard). The language used by Windows is 'hard-coded' into the operating system according to where it's being shipped. Your German version will always be a German version. You will have to buy an English version or learn to read German!
