That PC's minimum memory is 64 MB of RAM with a maximum upgradeable memory capacity of 768 MB. It also comes with a factory installed AMD Duron 900 MHz or a 1.0/1.1/1.2 GHz CPU.

According to MS's specifications XP will run on a minimum of 128 MB of RAM and a 233 MHz CPU.

So, yes, you should be able to upgrade to XP, just keep in mind that you'll need a bare minimum of 128 MB of system RAM to get XP to work with your PC.

I'd suggest you get the maximum RAM this system allows if you want to multitask without seeing a significant slowdown of your processing.

Yes, but it will be somewhat slow on such a old computer. I would recommend getting a new computer or buying a newer used computer, for example from ebay.

Some dude made an special xp which needs similiar to your computer specs. i believe it was named tinybeast edition of xp. windows folders' size is only 321,6 mb and eats 42 mb ram. many of normal xp's extras and services been removed in that edition. but you can connect to internet and do stuff. i did use that when i bought an old computer and turned it to a web server. Heck, i even tried to make a dedicated server of cstrike! it worked.

First ensure that the SCSI card is installed properly. Download DR 5020 drivers from http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0000672.asp and install them. Use CapturePerfect ver 2 or 3 to scan documents. With SCSI based scanners/devices, one should power-on SCSI device first before starting the Computer.

The XP audio driver should work with Windows 2000.
I suggest you use Windows XP - its a later version of Windows than Windows 2000.
You can download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Go to Microsoft website, to dowload center and search for xp updates or ServicePack2. But if your computer can't support then it won't work, I'm assuming you can run Windows XP now.
