Can this model be upgraded from xp 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit with 2.5 gb of memory?

Yes you can however HP only supports Windows XP (32-Bit), Windows Vista (32 and 64 Bit) No official support for windows 7.

However Most modern PC's will run windows 7 and most drivers are available. Upgrade at your own risk.... There might be some drivers that you wont find and may cause problems with your PC.

But why upgrade to 64bit if you are not upgrading memory to 4GB+?

See Windows 7 system requirements Microsoft Windows

Compaq presario s5100nx very slow windows xp

1GB of RAM is not enough to run Windows XP and the programs you installed efficiently. Removing unnecessary programs should make more memory available for necessary programs but it will never be fast. is a great resource for memory upgrades but I don't think you should invest in a computer that old with a completely unsecure and unsupported operating system (XP).

I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario 50000 PC Desktop and would like to replace the hard drive with one that will hold more and run Window's 7. What do I need to get and how much does it cost. the hard drive
If this is the system you are talking about the issue is not about the hard drive ..the main problem with it is with the other components..It is a very old desktop ..and it ran windows 98 I think ..and it only has a 700 mhz cpu ..and a very small ram memory ..
On the memory it came with can not run windows xp ..not talking about windows 7 or vista..
To run windows 7 or Vista in a computer ..the main concern is the cpu (processor ) it needs to be over 1G ..but to actually work it neds probably more..over 2 G ..and the minimum ram memory required is !G (1024 mb )Yours only have a 64 or something like that ..Even if it has can never run 1G on it ..cause it uses an antic memory type ..
The hard disk itself would be enough ..I think it has 30 G or 40 G ..and to run one of these operation systems you only need about 15 G for a start ..
In short ..if you ever want to run at least windows xp on it need a faster cpu (if you can get one in this socket ) and larger ram memory ..but in this conditions I think is not worth..probably would be best if you fins a second hand board and replace it ..and run something usable on it ..and use it just for small tasks like browsing the internet ..

I added a new ram before it has a 1GB and now i added another 2GB of ram.when i turn on my laptop it says there installed memory is 3GB which is right,but the problem it says also that 1GB usable..its that...

assuming your running th correct memory modules(same clock speed and size) you ahould have more useable. switch the larger one out to the nexxt slot and see if that fixes it. if not then just use the 2 gb by itself. this is more than enough for windows 7

I think my house mate has tampered with my hardware, my presario cq42 notebook is running poorly and all of a sudden his 15 year old desktopwitch was a slug before is now like lightning, also my windows 7...

dont know what to make of this, but no parts from a notebook will fit a desktop the cpu (processor) size physically is to small and the memory sticks are physically to small so is the assuming he is running xp so the drivers wont match for 64 bit and 32bit check your documentation and if need be do a factory restore.
hope this helps

I have a compaq presario 7470 PC which currently has windows 98, Iwant to know how can i update it with windows 7 and how muche it'll cost?

Generally the specs for Windows XP machines are good enough for upgrading to Windows 7 without too much cost.

But, Windows 98 was a bit further back in the history of Windows.

You can go to and use an upgrade advisor to see if Windows 7 will work on your machine.

And, they'll tell you the cost.

I upgraded to xp but now its running really slow

You may not have enough RAM. I think Windows XP runs like a champ on about 1gb of memory. But in your case 512mgs should be ok.
