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

Jumping cursor on compaq presario laptop after upgrading from Vista to windows 7


LOL, see Windows 7 is not much better than Vista. The same group of knuckle heads wrote it. Have you ever noticed that not many corporations, school systems or government entities have migrated from Windows XP to Vista or Windows 7?

Windows 7 is missing a lot of drivers and that could be your problem. You can go to your manufacturers site and see if they have Windows 7 drivers for your Touchpad and Mouse.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Compaq Support" or "HP Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.

Can Compaq Presario 1275 be upgraded to newer os?


The Compaq Presario 1275 meets the (bare) minimum requirements for Windows XP. It is not advisable, however, as it will run extremely slow and be more of an annoyance than anything. You would not be able to load Vista or Windows 7 on this machine.

Have Windows ME,seems to be outdated. Do not make software for it anymore. Would like to upgrade to Vista.Can't hook up anything to it. Have to be Vista or XP. Which is better for a Compaq Presario 5000


The Compaq Presario 5000 is not powerful enough to run Vista so XP is your best bet. I assume you have the standard 512MB RAM which will be fine for XP Once you outgrow that you'll need to go for more powerful hardware. By that time the new Windows 7 should have been officially released.
