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

I have a compaq presario 7470 PC which currently has windows 98, Iwant to know how can i update it with windows 7 and how muche it'll cost?


Generally the specs for Windows XP machines are good enough for upgrading to Windows 7 without too much cost.

But, Windows 98 was a bit further back in the history of Windows.

You can go to Microsoft.com and use an upgrade advisor to see if Windows 7 will work on your machine.

And, they'll tell you the cost.

Compaq SR1650NX HARD DRIVE MESSED UP RECOVERY DISK WON'T WORK REPLACED HARD DRIVE CAN'T GET BIOS TO RECONIZE HARD DRIVE SHOWS UP IN BOOT BUT NOT IN MAIN HP SAID TO INSTALL NEW OS HAD OLD 98SE LOADED WORKED...


Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

Call compaq tech support and have them send you a system restore disk for your pc. If it came with 2000, that's what the restore disk will have.

Compaq presario 2200 is very slow


If you open up Windows Explorer, right-click on 'My Computer' if you are running XP or 'Computer' if you are running Vista and select Properties from the context menu, you will be presented with a window that displays information about the installed processor and clock speed as well as the amount of memory installed in the computer.

Again in Windows Explorer, if you right-click on Local Disk (C:) and select Properties, you will be presented with a window that give you information about the amount of used space, free space and total space on the hard disk.

Supposed to have 20 GB of memory, only have 1.99GB


Use windows 98 to make a rescue disk (3 1/2 floppy)
use that emergency disk to repartition and format the hard drive. You can probley use fat16.

Delete operating system


Use the restore disk that came with the 4505 to restore it , then upgrade it to 98 with an upgrade disk. These can be found online still of ya search around or at a neighbors house *wink*
I believe the 5190 disks wil not work as they have the incorrect drivers for the other system.
