Printer Drivers go Spanish on me!

Sirs:
     I am installing a Dell Precision 620 rebuild for a friend who had an older Lexmark inkjet printer. This system has Windows 2000 Pro installed. When I installed the printer drivers all went well until the install was completed, and now everything that comes up under the Lexmark software is displayed in Spanish! I thought I indicated English in the software. I have tried to uninstall the printer and start over again, but when the system reboots, it senses the system is connected to the Lexmark, and automatically re-installs the drivers all over again in Spanish! How do I completely remove the drivers from the hard drive so that I can re-install them correctly in English again?
                                                                                                                     Thanks
                                                                                                                     L. Daily

Try

Right click on the printer (Dell Precision 620) and select Properties
go to Advanced Tab and click on    New Driver

The new window will popup then click next. Click on Have Disk a new window popup and click Browse...   go to the location of the driver (make sure you select the driver inside the en folder. I believe there should have many folders inside Drivers folder.)  when you select the correct driver and click OK and then go through the step until final.

Finally, don't forget to set this printer as you default printer
