SOURCE: Windows XP

In this case, Keep ur vista as it is but u have to install VM Ware or Virtual box software on vista after installing it u can make virtual machine installing XP on it.
So after starting vista u have to just start that software and then load virtual machine on which u installed XP so ur control will be transfered to XP.Now u can install ur college tools,.


If u do not want it then u have to search those applications which can run on Vista and providing same functionality like ur tools

I have a laptop which is hp widows vista,compaq 6720s. my little boy went on it and the screen side is has crack and doesn't work. what should i do HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO FIX IT


The replacement panels for the Compaq 6720s range between $85.00 USD and $110.00 USD depending on where you order them from. The replacement is a relatively easy procedure, but I don't recommend it for a first-time novice do-it-yourselfer.
Here are links to some places where you can order the display panel:
http://www.blisscomputers.net/hp-compaq-6720s-laptop-lcd-screen-15-4-wxga-glossy-ccfl.aspx
http://www.screencountry.com/index.php?section=products&model=HP%20COMPAQ%206720S&brand=HP-Compaq
http://www.r3electronics.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=1&page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=1147&category_id=38
Now the good news is you can still use your laptop if you have an external monitor. You can use the appropriate "Fn" key combination to switch your display output to the external device. I believe for the Compaq 6720 is the "Fn" key & the "F4" key. Connect the external monitor then power on your machine, Press the Fn and F4 key simultaneously until you get the display showing on the external device.
One more thing, you will need to go set the laptop to not do anything when the lid is closed. You can do this via Start -> Control Panel -> Power Settings. Change the custom power settings for both "A/C" Power and "Battery Power" to "do nothing" when the lid is closed. By doing so, you can close the laptop lid without shutting off the computer. Of course you will need to add an external mouse and keyboard to continue using the computer, but by following these instructions, you can basically use the laptop, even with a damaged screen, pretty much the same way you would use a desktop. The portability is lost, but the function is retained until you can have a new display panel installed.
Hope this helps FixYa! Please take some time to leave some feedback and a testimonial if you found this information helpful.

Hp compaq 6720s laptop. how do i format my laptop so that i can install the new windows 7 software


You don't "format" anything. If you're on Vista, just install it. If you're on XP, you need to do a full backup of _everything_ on it, install 7, then reinstall all your programs. Windows 7 isn't as cool as all the marketing makes it out to be if you're on XP.

use a vertualization software "vmware workstation" and you would be able to work on xp without installing it physically. this software is used to run several operating systems at one time.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
