Dell Inspiron 530

I bought a Linux model Inspiron 530 by mistake, I called dell, they said I'll send you Windows XP and you can change the operating system. I received an upgrade, not a full system disc, now they will not refund their mistake. Anyway I have a XP full version now,
Can this work to change the operating system?

Yes, you can change the operating system with the XP full CD. Boot from the disk at startup and it will erase the linux partition and install windows.

Can XP & Windows 2007 can be loaded in laptop 14AR of DELL ? plz conirm.


Hi,
The Inspiron 14 that you have isnot compatible with windows xp, as it needs certain drivers for the hardware that is installed on the computer that are not supported by XP. However you can install windows vista as an operating system and install Office 200. However if you are using the Linux operating system the office 2007 would not be compatible with the same.

Thanks

How to activation camera in ubuntu os


UBUNTU is a linux open source OS. Chances are your camera doesnt have a Linux driver and wasnt designed to operate under Linux. The website http://www.ubuntu.com/support/communityis the user support community for UBUNTU.. I would post your question there for assistance from someone with a similar model for your laptop. There is also a selection for real time chat support from other UBUNTU users. I have checked DELL website under your unit and it was made to run the Windows XP system so there are no Linux drivers available directly from Dell.

Your options are go to Dell to get one for your particular computer (probably at a cost) or get a stand alone new Windows, XP, Vista or possibly 7.

Your computer will not boot because, as you are aware, it has no operating sustem.

You could get the public domain Linux at http://www.linux.org/ There is no charge for this operating system and it operates in a very similar fashion to the other OS we all know and love.

It is a pretty simple process

Create 3 partitions on the HDD (Vista requires 20 GB minimum)

Install XP on 1st, Vista on 2nd, Linux on 3rd

You'll choose the partition to install on during the install process of each OS, you can create the partitions during the XP install
