Check the programs that vista says it can not update. They may be incompatible with Vista. You can find this out by running the Windows Vista upgrade advisor available for free at microsoft.com. If you really want Vista & can do without the offending programs you can uninstall them & then run the upgrade. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

That web-site _does_ work for me.
It redirects to:

https://www.hpwindows7upgrade.arvato.com/north_america/Endcustomer/default.aspx

This latter page states:

This program offers a Windows 7 Upgrade Kit for qualified HP PC customers.
For the easiest ordering process and to avoid delays we recommend that you:
1. Place your order using the eligible HP PC (or have it close-by)
2. Scan a copy of your eligible PC proof of purchase before you begin ordering

Important:
1. Proof of Purchase (receipt, packing slip) is required to complete your order.
2. Shipping and handling costs may apply. Your credit card will not be charged until your order is shipped.

The Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program from HP requires you to provide your HP PC product serial number.
Your serial number will be used to confirm program eligibility, and, after program completion,
will be archived by HP to meet Microsoft program requirements.
* I agree to provide the serial number of my HP PC in order to place a Windows 7 upgrade kit order.

If you're on dial-up, scan the original receipt,
and find the "serial-number" somewhere on the case of your computer.
Then, find a computer (Public Library? Internet Cafe' ?) that has a high-speed connection, and try again to access the web-page that they told you to access.

My windows can't check for updates (windows vista home premium). it's showing error code 80244019


Press Win+R, type 'services.msc' and press Enter. Respond to the UAC prompt. Check that Background Intelligent Transfer Service is started and its startup type is 'Automatic.' (It can also be Automatic (Delayed Start).) If it is not started, right-click on it and select Start. Scroll down to Windows Update to make sure that it is started and it startup type is 'Automatic' or 'Automatic (Delayed Start).' If it is not started, right-click on it and select Start. If you had to start either service, try to run Windows Update again by clicking on Start -> All Programs -> Windows Update.
