From the one's I've researched you should be able to upgrade this to windows xp. Here are the min. requirements for Windows XP. The biggest thing you'll need that you may not have is a USB CDROM since I'm sure yours didn't come with one.

Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP Professional • PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
• 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
• 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
• Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor
• CD-ROM or DVD drive
• Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device

I have a sylvania notebook, and it runs so slow. It is running off of Internet Explrer 6, I have tried downloading mozailla firefox, google chrome, internet explorer 9, and it wont let me. Everytime I try...

Your netbook doesn't run Windows XP, it uses a cheap version called Windows CE, which is more designed for phones. The reason that you can't install Firefox or Chrome is because Windows CE doesn't support programs designed for Windows XP, Vista, or 7. You can try installing Opera Mini by going to, but there no guarantee that it will work.

Hello i have a wespro mini laptop having windows ce but i am not able to download applications

You cannot download normal applications in CE - it's a completely different Windows and totally incompatible with XP or 7 programs/applications.
All you can install are the ones that were made specially for it - if you can find some of them.

6.99" mini netbook /windows ce/

By the time you start paying for another operating system and a way to get it on the netbook, you should strongly consider a replacement netbook. Something more currant.

You may not be able to. Windows CE is a very small Windows operating system. That is, there are just basic components used to run your laptop.

From the website PDF manual:
To install and run Nokia PC Suite:

At least 300 MB of free disk space
- One of the following operating systems:
- Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit editions
- Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit editions (Service Pack 1)
- Windows XP Professional x64 edition (Service Pack 2)
- Windows XP (Professional or Home Edition) (Service Pack 2 or later)
- Administrator rights to the PC to install software on it
Note: To transfer music between your phone and a PC using USB cable connection in the Media Transfer mode, you need to have Windows Media Player 10 (or newer) installed on your PC. Windows Media Player includes an MTP driver, which is required for transferring music in the Media Transfer mode.

Trying to download flash for the sylvania 7inch netbook. it uses windows

You cannot use Flash as that program is for Windows Xp,or Win7, there is no port of it that will run on a CE machine. For that matter you nhave to usewhat was supplied with the machine untill the seller decides to upgrade and include other apps that are written specifically for Win CE.

Can you upgrade a notebook from windows ce to windows xp or windows 7

No. Windows CE is not typically run on the same types of hardware as xp or 7. There is also no Windows CE version of the setup program on the xp or 7 discs, so even if the hardware was compatible, you'd have to do a clean install

i hope this helps

Is it possible to change windows ce to window xp

Yes. If you have enough RAM and processing power. Generally speaking Windows CE is for minimalistic systems. If you have an XP disk, give it a go, it may work and if it does, it should be quite stable.
