How do you upgrade windows ME to windows XP on gateway 614ge


I assume you have 512MB which it came with and adequate disk on the 200 GB disk so you could install XP.
You need to buy XP which is going to be hard today as MS has withdrawn it. Don't fall for the pirated versions unless your are really skilled with handling the problems it will bring.

You can buy a new computer for $359 in the Sunday ads this week. Why upgrade a tired old computer??

Hope this information will help.
Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...

I own the DK Multimedia "My Amazing Human Body" CD, version for use with Windows 95. I am unable to use it with my Windows XP operating system. I understand that you might offer an upgrade...


In your case..the fix is to run the program in compatibility with windows 95..
Insert the disk ..and after that if it let's you install it is great ..Install it ..and after that click on the icon (right ) choose compatibility ..and in there tick the case that says "run this program in compatibility mode for : " and choose windows 95 ..
If it do not want to install it at all ..repeat the same thing with the execution icon on the disk ..
Insert the disk ..than in my computer folder..locate the cd icon ...click right on it ..select compatibility ..than tick same case...to run it as windows 95..and will work ..
In case the feature is not available cause the program is on disk and can not accept properties changes...click right on the icon of the cd ....choose explore... and it will reveal all that it has inside..
Copy all files in another folder on your hard disk ..in a location of your choice ..Than the properties will be able to be changed..and repeat the operation I says ..Locate the executable icon ...click right /properties//compatibility ..and select to run in compatibility with windows 95 ..and there will be no more issues..

I am loading up a new Dell computer with Windows 7 Pro, I have the upgrade for Office 2007 ( that I purchased) but only have upgrades since office 95. How can I load Office 2007 upgrade on this new...


Is the disk-drive from the old computer attached as a "slave" disk-drive on the new computer?
If so, then the "upgrade" utility should find the "qualifying" files, and allow the "upgrade" to proceed.

Is Office 95 listed as a "qualifying" product for the Office 2007 upgrade?
If so, then insert the CD-ROM for Office 95 when running the Office 2007 installer.
Or, insert the CD-ROM for the Office 2000/XP/2003 upgrade when requested.

I have bought a BTC extrenal disk drive USB 2.0 CD-RW 52x24x52x. My computer is regestering that it is in the usb port but it will not read any disks. I have an Acer travel mate 2300 laptop


A BTC CD-RW drive is compatible with Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP and it can read and write under Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP.
Under DOS, the drive can read CDs only.

The quality of CD-R/RW media varies from different brands. A CD-R/RW media with bad quality causes writing error and makes a CD-ROM drive difficult to read.

Please check if the disc has deep scratches, fingerprints, or other contaminants on the discs surface. Clean the disc if it is necessary.


1. Use the burning software which is provided by original supplier and bundled with this CD-RW drive or download the update file from internet. 2. More capacity of hard disk is needed if using hard disk as temporary buffer. 3. Place the disc correctly. 4. The blank disc needs full format first if using Packing Writing software.
Software such as; EasyCD Creator, Nero-Burning ROM, NTI CDMaker are the only supported.

Flash firmware for Windows mode: 1. Please download the appropriate driver file you need from this page. 2. Run the flash program under Windows. 3. Click on the ¡uUpgrade¡vbutton under the flash program 4. ¡uStatus Upgrading¡vis starting to flash the F/W 5. After flashing, the system will appear ¡uComplete¡IPlease restart your computer¡v, then, restart your computer to finish the flash procedure. Note: 1. BTC do not recommend you to upgrade your F/W, if the drive is working properly and does not encounter any irreclaimable problem issues. 2. BTC is not responsible for any defective reasons if the upgrading process caused the issue. Firmware for windows:V000F.exe

I HAVE A GATEWAY MX3215 LAPTOP BUT IM MISSING OR


Go to Gateways site and download the "recovery" disc info....I note that your laptop specs only has 256 MB ram which is too low to run XP. I suggest you need at least 1GB ram DDR2 whixch is the max it will handle. This will really speed it up and is relatively cheap.

I need to up grade my windows 2000 to windows xp


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!

I have a Windows me,and I was told i can't get Mcfee security unless i upgrade to Windows xp or Vista.Could you tell me the cost to do this?


For some people ME was great, for me it was ME= Mistake Emulator. XP has been the best platform Microsoft put out. I would recoment going to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316639/
follow the steps to see if your machine can handle it.
New computers are more affordable and come with Vista. Ocassionaly you can find one with XP. Look for the ones that say Xp - Vista ready. They have more memory and Hard drive space on them and XP runs great. If you want to upgrade. google the price for XP. Dirvers for your machine are the hardest part to find. Buying a XP-Vista ready computer would be the easiest route.
