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!

Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft. You need to up-grade to Win 7 or buy a new computer.

Want to up grade to xp


This system does support an upgrade form ME to XP but you need to first purchase an upgrade cd.

keep in mind that windows xp will no longer be supported by microsoft and at the price tag of 89-129$USD for the home edition you may just want to buy a cheap replacement computer.

if you do go to upgrade, once you get the cd you boot to ME. place the cd in and follow the instructions. The process is rather simple and straight forward.

Compaq computer and HP generally have all the drivers in XP when coming from ME. You may not have to do anything other than just use the XP upgrade feature.

I have installed Windows XP on my computer where I did have Windows 2000. I want to continue using the XP & uninstall the 2000 - how do I do that?


If you installed XP over 2000, you don't need to uninstall 2000, but If you installed it parallel to 2000, and you have an option to run 2000, and XP when the computer boots, you cannot uninstall 2000 without wiping the Hard Drive and reinstalling from scratch.

If the version of XP that you installed is an upgrade, you will likely have to wipe the hard drive, then install 2000, then run the upgrade install of XP after, but choose to overwrite the 2000 install.

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.
