    I need to know the full name of the computer. The model name and model number. Compaq MV720 is the model number for your monitor, not the computer.
    Example: Compaq Presario SR4110NX. You should find this on the back of a desktop computer in a Service Tag, next to the Windows Product Key. It's on the bottom of a laptop.

I would think that you mast likely can do it. You need a Windows XP disk with a legitimate install key (or Microsoft will give you a hassel). When you are ready to upgrade, turn on or restart your computer and press [Delete] to enter the BIOS. Go to the Boot menu and change the boot order so that your CD/DVD drive is first.
Open the drive and put Windows XP disk in. Press the F10 key to save the changes and exit. when the computer restarts, it will provide several start options. Choose the one that will install Windows XP. From there you just follow the prompts.

You can upgrade as long as you have the resources to do so. Ram and Hard Drive space etc. Not sure what operating system you have now. I'm assuming that you are wanting to go from either Vista or XP to Win 7 do not download from XP to Vista not recommended. You can also download the Win 7 upgrade adviser tool to see if your system devices are compatible to handle the software. Click Here to check this out. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Want to up grade to xp


This system does support an upgrade form ME to XP but you need to first purchase an upgrade cd.

keep in mind that windows xp will no longer be supported by microsoft and at the price tag of 89-129$USD for the home edition you may just want to buy a cheap replacement computer.

if you do go to upgrade, once you get the cd you boot to ME. place the cd in and follow the instructions. The process is rather simple and straight forward.

Compaq computer and HP generally have all the drivers in XP when coming from ME. You may not have to do anything other than just use the XP upgrade feature.

If you have a Windows XP Pro installation disk, put it in the optical drive, restart your computer, on startup, go to BIOS settings (usually press [Delete] and set the optical drive as first boot device. Save changes and exit. When the computer starts it usually says to press any key to start from CD. Press any key and the windows installation will start. Make sure you format C: and you will downgrade to Windows XP Pro. If you want to upgrade to Vista again, you will need to know the keyboard sequence to start Vista from Its partition or have Vista install disk.
