Add more RAM, 512MB ram will slow your computer down because when you run out of ram the computer uses the hard drive as vitrual ram. I have 4GB in my Vista machine and it is faster than XP.

Another suggestion is to turn off the hard drives indexing. Right click on your "C" drive and unhook the "index this drive for faster searching" box.

I want to upgade my Compaq Presario SR2150NX PC Desktop from Vista to Windows 7. Can this be done? What precautions to I need to take before proceeding?


Hi,

Yes of course you can upgrade your Vista PC to Windows 7.

The only thing you have to do is back all your wanted files like movies, pics, docs etc to slave or storage drive. Then you can proceed to install Windows 7. Just make sure you install over the Vista partition if you are going to perform a clean install.

If you just want to upgrade and keep your settings just pop the disc in while you are using the Vista machine.

If you need anymore advice please post back.



Regards.
