What is the main benefit for upgrading?

with operating systems , it is only necessary to upgrade if you receive a notice that the current os( operating system) is no longer being supported ( no upgrades to eliminate problems )
an example here is the win 10 upgrade from a previous win 7 , vista etc
this up grade has conflicts with the installed os so it is better to get the win 10 program and install it in full rather than upgrade to win 10
Using mac os and you are happy and confident in the use of that version and there is no notice that that version will no longer be supported, then stay with what you know and is trouble free
however if you want more from the mac os consider buying the program and installing it complete rather than an up grade on the current base os
for advice on this sort of problem , go google and find forums on the subject and then make your decision or talk with a computer repair guy to get good information

Upgrading windows xp to windows 7 or do i have to upgrade to vista first

You cannot upgrade xp to win 7 because the kernels are so different. You can upgrade from vista to win 7. Just do a clean install of windows 7.

I upgrade RAM on laptop, now runs slower. Running 64-bit WIN 7 OS,

Check BIOS if all RAM is being picked and or set to max on RAM settings.

Upgrading BIOS! If it isn't broken don't fix it. Upgrading is a scapegoat fix, and many manufactures have a disclaimer. "You are on you own, and the likes for a reason. Most solutions are found elsewhere.

However, if you truly need to update read this to help you with the upgrade.


PS. Many applications are written for 32 bit, hence they are unable to fully utilize 64 bit and may be bound to 4GB.

Upgrading to windows 7

When you first boot from the win 7 disc there is a option to format or delete a partition.Do both.This will erase all vista information and allow only win7 to be installed.

I have had windows7 installed on my computer and want to refer back to vista without a reboot disc, could you possibly help me to do this. many thanks.


Depending on how you upgraded from Vista to Win 7:

My Computer > Local C: > look for Windows Old and double click on it.

This will give you access to all the files and maybe even some programs you had in Vista.

However, to be able to use both Vista and Win 7 on the same computer, they need to be installed on separate partitions, then on booting you will get an option, controllable with the arrows on your keyboard as to which operating system you boot into.

If You did not install them on separate partions, you cannot 'use' Vista any more because althoughit is possible to upgrade operating systems, it is not possible to downgrade them. So once Vista has been upgraded to Win 7, unfortunately there is no way back to just Vista again unless you back everything up to an external storage device and start all over again with fresh installations.

I hope this helps.

How can i upgrade my compaq mv720 to a newer version

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
