    It is possible that it may be a language setting that needs changed ?
    Some screenshots would help fathom out what is currently on the machine.

    Looks like the memory stick is corrupt or incomplete. You could put the install files for any distro you want on to it to load on to the machine. e.g. Ubuntu netbook or Puppy. Really the choice is yours.
