The link heavyice provided is good even though from 2001. I must add though, be sure it is what you NEED to do because of a good reason, besides not liking Vista (No I don't use Vista and or ever plan not to, it's just i find XP especially Professional to be reliable for me on my Toshiba). If your Laptop is New and or still under Warranty, then I suggest harrasing Compaq about any problems with your Laptop as well as the benefit of being able to restore your System to Factory Default, i.e get the System back to the way you got it when you 1st bought it Most if not all Windows loaded Laptops have a Hidden Partition that that contains and Image of everything that Compaq installed, i.e b4 shipping it out to you and or the Shop? Enjoy, Bastian

I want to change windows XP to Vista,but how ??without using cd


If you want to change Windows XP to Vista you should check out the different Vista versions that Microsoft offers, here is a link to the different versions of VIsta that you can get and the upgrade paths you need to take - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/upgrade-your-pc.aspx. You wont need the Windows XP installation disk to upgrade to Vista. Let me know if you need any more assistance.

Downgrading vista to xp


Now you need to find a Windows XP install disk that can match the licence number printed on the sticker at the back of the laptop and reinstall XP using your serial key.
You will have to download and install also the XP drivers, you find them on manufacturer website.

See links below on reinstalling XP on a Vista system:
