First you need to make sure that your computer meets the following specifications:
- 300 MHz (or higher processor)
- Intel Pentium/Celeron or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron compatible processor.
- 128 MB of RAM (or higher)
- 1.5 Gigabytes of available hard disk space
- Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor.

I am sure that your computer likely meets all of these requirements, but I posted them to save you the grief if by chance it does not meet one of the above!

In a moment I will post a link to a website where you can purchase an upgrade to Microsoft Windows XP home edition (Service Pack 2).

Once you have the software, start up windows 2000 and place the disk into the CDROM drive. You should be given an option to upgrade to XP. (make sure you start the disk while you are on the Windows 2000 desktop with all programs closed). After XP is installed if your computer does not have an Antivirus program installed, I strongly recommend either installing Norton Antivirus or AVG. AVG is free and can be downloaded from http://www.avg.com/. Then make sure that your windows firewall is turned on. (It should be automatically) After this go to Microsoft.com and download service pack 3 and any additional updates needed.

The upgrade version of Windows XP home with service pack 2 can be purchased from newegg.com by clicking on this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16837116194.

I hope that this information has been helpful to you. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Free windows xp master disc download


A free copy of windows XP will do you no good as it would be registered with Microsoft and they will not allow it to operate on any other computer. At best you could only use in not connected to the net. Anyway XP is no longer supported by Microsoft so getting up grades will be near impossible.. You will have a better chance of getting a cheap version of windows 7 where you will get a registration code with it.

Up-grading the operating system.


You have to buy the upgrade then put disk in cd rom drive and restart computer. I would back everything up first though.

Hi,

Your best bet before buying a new mouse is to go to the manufacturer's web site of the present mouse and in the Support area see if they have drivers updated for XP.

I do not know if Windows Vista driver software for the MFC-3240C is available on CD/DVD.

You can download either the Full Driver & Software Package or the Add Printer Driver Wizard for Windows Vista ("regular" edition) from this page.

I have a 2 hand


Best thing for you to do is reinstall windows from scratch. I don't recommend you to use windows 98 b/c its not very secure and you won't be able to use USb2 without additional drivers.

go to the bios and change the boot order to cdrom first then reinstall windows XP with the minimum items on it and it will make your life much easier.

visit the comaq site to get the drivers you will need although since its a fairly old machine windows xp should have most of the drivers for it.

good luck
