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.

Hi my name is peter and i have a compaq presario sr2150nx desktop. im running windows 7 ultimate and the computer is not hooked up to the internet. and the screen when u can choose which user to log in it...


All the user profiles are corrupted - some installed program that should be launched during boot is incompatible with Win 7.
Since you don't know which program and the extent of the corruption all you can do is to reinstall Windows and then install all the programs back, one at a time - when the problem returns you will know that the last program is bad, get rid of it.

It can be downloaded here: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software8/COL19724/pv-52015-2/sp26922.exe
Please be careful installing this. Backup your data before flashing the BIOS, as there is a possibility it can disable it.

I recently went from Windows Vista to Windows XP, and I somehow lost all traces of my sound device.


Vista I admit is not as user friendly as XP.
Download the apropriate drivers from HP. If your 2150 came with Vista you may find that there is no XP driver support!
Hope this helps.

My dvd drive doesnt open on my Compaq Presario SR2150NX, i finally got it open with the manual open, but im trying to install windows 7 on it, but when i try it says theres something wrong with something...


Hello,

Check to see if the DVD drive is connected to the power supply and the IDE connectors.
Can your dvd drive be displayed in "My Computer"
If yes, then it is connected, so, you will have to reinstall the drivers. They could be corrupted?

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth

How to upgrade a new compaq presario SR2150NX?


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.
