I have a laptop running Windows 7 Starter Edition. What is the procedure for changing the language setting from Spanish to English?

Changing the display language of a Windows installation is only supported in Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise. On other editions (possibly not Starter, as it has strange restrictions, but certainly Home and Professional builds) you can install a Language Interface Pack, but this only translates a small portion of the most commonly used interface elements. Please see this link for downloads and further details.

Install Vistalizator, it lets you change language on pretty much any windows version including windows 7 starter:

This tool allows you to change display language in Windows editions other than (officially supported) Ultimate, like Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium and Business/Professional.

Vistalizator overrides the limit of one MUI language on non-Ultimate Windows editions.
