Hi,microsoft has launched vista but microsoft themselves dosent which programs are compatible with vista and the worst part is the solution for all the problems in vista is destructive recovery(LIKE IF YOU FORGET THE PASSWORD, in xp from safe mode you can change the password but in vista its not possible or the product key) ............the best thing here can be done is work with xp and its compatible with all the software and all the peripheral devices.............

Yes, Bill Gates strikes again. There is also numerous hardware items in your pc that are probably not compatible with Vista, including your MB. Also Vista Ultimate requires 1gb RAM to just run the OS. So if you have below that amount or right at 1gb, your pc will not function properly (extremely slow) or not at all. The only way ANYONE should buy Vista right now is pre-loaded on a new pc. Sorry man, thank the guys in Seattle for this one.

    Just looked at the specs for your system on www.hp.com . How old is your system. HP claims to have put Vista on this machine already since Mar 07.

Hi, Unfortunately Microsoft has blundered and not told anyone. Most older programs will not run in VISTA. I hope you burnt your download to a CD, you could use it at a later date when Microsoft finaly put VISTA right. At this time you only have two choices. Buy all new software that is VISTA compatable or go back to the good old faithful XP. Regards mistyman

Upgrading from vista to win7


I would start by deleting partitions and doing a full format. Then loading an OS. Check MS minimum system requirements for OS and double them.

If it crashes again. Start checking RAM.

I installed windows anytime upgrade and i dont have any word programs, what do i do?


Windows Anytime Upgrade allows you to upgrade to a superior version of Windows, provided you buy a key to activate this new version. For instance, you can upgrade form Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Home Premium or from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Ultimate.
If you need a word processor program, you can try the free productivity suite Open Office.org (which word processor, Writer, is fuuly compatible with the MS Office suite). Dowload from here (http://download.openoffice.org/).
Several free stand alone word processor programs are available also. Just do a Google search.

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You
