Yes, but if the PC comes with Vista you will still have to pay for Vista as well as XP.

Can I purchase something to make bluetooth work on my lap top?


Good morning John.

The quick answer is Yes, you can get bluetooth for your laptop.

The most innocuous way is to add a Bluetooth Dongle to one of your USB ports. Examples include
Avantree DG40S Bluetooth 4 0 USB Dongle Adapter for PC with Windows XP 7 8... at Amazon, or
Monoprice USB Bluetooth v4 0 USB Dongle Black at BestBuy, amongst many. They should come with drivers to activate and handshake the Bluetooth with the rest of your system, so you can link to phones, speakers, or what have you.

Hoping this helps, and good luck!

I need to format my lenovo lap top ....when i bhought windows vista is there(original)....then i put xp ....i need my original vista again...is it available inside te lap ...how can i get my original...


Welcome to Fixya

If you have'nt repartition the HD then there is a change you can resotre the compter to Vista. Turn off the computer then press the OKR button which is located beside the power button. This button has a picure of a U-turn arrow sign. After pressing the button, you will go to the one key restoration software. All you need to do is to select restore from initial backup and wait while you system is restoring to vista. If none of this works, then you need to order recovery disk for your computer. You may contact Lenovo at 18774536686 then press option no 3.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Reboot


To Reboot a computer is to turn it off, wait at least 20 seconds, then turn it back on.

A.If you're thinking of Reboot, as to reinstall the Operating System, you use a Restoration Disk, (sometimes listed as Recovery Disk), insert it in your CD/DVD drive, and restart your computer.
(Just press the CTRL, ALT and Delete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
Not shouting. Windows XP and Windows Vista are examples of an Operating System)

B.If you're trying to install an Operating System, from a CD disk that you bought, I suggest you go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, change the first boot device to CDROM. Insert the CD disk in your CD/DVD drive, and restart the computer.

If you buy a Full Installation CD disk, as listed above, you have to change the Boot Order.
For example:
1.You have Windows XP on your computer now. It has problems, and doesn't work correctly. Instead of getting the Restoration Disk from your computer manufacturer, you decided to just buy a genuine copy of Windows XP, and install it. (This is a Full Installation Disk)

The Windows XP you have installed now, will not let the one you bought install over it, by just putting the disk in the drive. Change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM, and it will. The Windows XP you have now, will 'see' the Windows XP you're trying to install, as just the same version. You have to install a better version of Windows, in order for it to write over what is installed.
Such as Windows Vista.

2.You have Windows Vista on your computer, and are not happy with it. You would like to put Windows XP on instead. Windows XP is considered a lesser version, and Vista won't let it write over it.
Go to BIOS Setup, change the first boot device in Boot Order, to CDROM, and it will.

ABOUT OS...


No it is not if Vista is already loaded. In order for it to work and have a dual-boot, the earlier OS must be loaded first. So, first you must have Windows XP; then you can load Windows Vista; however it does not work the other way around. So if you wanted to have both, you would have to wipe your hard drive clean, load Windows XP, then load Windows Vista....Good Luck.

Hi there,

There may be a problem concerning drivers for WinXP.

try downloading this update software for your laptop, from HERE:
if this doesn’t work, I´d suggest that you go back to Vista.
