Well win 7 is good. But I will counsel u not to remove XP because it's tooooo good & has high compatibility.

However if u really want to remove ur XP (bad idea) , therefore burn ur recovery DVD before proceeding. U will do it by acer recovery prog & follow some setup instructions & burn that DVD. After that backup ur data from my docs etc, then u need an original win7 to format & install it. After that install drivers from acer support website.
However if u r not satisfied wiz ur win7 later 4 some reasons, put ur acer recovery DVD that u created and restore ur netbook to factory defaults.

Should I buy a new router or upgrade OS?


Well, I find Verizon's statement rather confusing. The OS really has little to with actually connecting to the router and getting an IP address for access to the Internet. Now, trying to use an older browser to actually get INTO the router may be a bit more of an issue. Older browsers may not be compatible with the Webpage that Verizon uses for the router access. You say that the VAIO has Windows XP SP2. Is there some reason why you never upgraded it to SP3? SP3 provides a big upgrade to the OS and there are hundreds of other security patches that followed SP3. Without it, the OS is dreadfully out of date, and this may be more of an issue than the simple fact that it is Win XP. I say this because I have four PCs running Windows XP, and four running Windows 10 on my Verizon FIOS router right now. Two of the XP machines are wired to the network and two are wireless. So I can vouch that Windows XP itself is not the disqualifying issue. If you could provide more information on what you tried to do and what the results were I could possibly be of more assistance. Something tells me the folks at Verizon just didn't want to work with you or their current expertise doesn't go back far enough to relate to Windows XP anymore.

Unless absolutely necessary upgrading can be fraught with OS incompatibility issues as you have just found out. Either live with it, get another new keyboard, get a patch, or go back to prior OS

Cmd command on command prompt cannot enter a file. instead it dispalys "windows version [6.1.7600]"


Hi,

You are trying to downgrade the OS, and with MS Windows you can't unless you wipe your hard disk of all that's on it including the current OS.

Upgrading is possible, but back-peddling, is basically impossible.

Windows 7 is two versions newer than XP, or whatever OS is currently running on your Laptop.

If you wish to install Win XP, then you'l need the full installation XP disc, not the upgrade disk. I'm Not sure, but I think most PC repair shops can do this for you at little cost, XP is still very popular and is still in use by millions around the world, so give that a try.

I hope I have given you some great advice.

Cheers,
Peter

Upgraded windows 7 from windows xp pro on gateway profile 5.5, but cannot change resolution. All icons are huge.


First of all Un-installed/format it your system and re-installed windows 7 and see it happen again or not? May be, while upgrading your windows XP to windows 7 some file may be left over so while running your OS (operating system) file cannot read properly.

thanks for using FixYa Good luck
