Legally no. Micorsoft states that every Windows machine must have it's own operating system licensed to it.

I am looking to set up an old computer with new memory and hard drive. I have windows vista from my laptop computer can I install this into my newly updated computer and how.

Generally, the licensed software for your laptop is tied to that machine/brand. If you bought a copy of vista and installed it on the laptop, you may be able to install vista on three machines if that is the version you bought.
Most Microsoft programs are locked to one machine and won't activate on another system.
Now, if this is an old, slow (less than 1 Ghz) with less than 2 gigs, it probably will run Vista very slowly if you get it installed. I'd use the OS that was on the old machine instead of trying to install Vista.

My friend bought a new dell laptop & got vindows vista home premium for free when i wanted install that vista in my pc it installed on my pc bt now it is not activating with my friends vista's...

I assume you are using the Vista disk that came in with the system. Even though you can see a product key on your friends computer, It would not work on your own computer because that product key is intended only for that DELL computer. The windows Vista that your friend has is an OEM copy of the operating system. The product key should match the Hardware of the OEM computer for it to work.
I suggest you get a genuine copy of the operating system for your self.
Hope this helps.

Windows vista home basic problem (acer aspire 6930)

Unless you can find and verify you have an orignal CD there is nothing you an do but buy another license for th use of Vista. If you made a back up set up. Have yo ulooked at the bottom of the laptop. Most of the time it has the Vista sticker with the key for your windows use. reinstall and use that key.

Copy windows vista from my laptop to my acer pc

you can not just copy vista. you would need to get an install cd of vista and install it onto the pc. this still may not fix your internet problem as there is no guarantee that vista will even have the drivers for your pc components.

Installing XP/downgrading from Vista

you can not install under windows environment if it is a down grade. i thought maybe that is how you are doing because you said when you click intall...?? you have to boot your XP home from the cd drive and there you follow the instructions on how you wanted it installed. in XP series, you only get to use the mouse when windows is almost ready for intallation. but initial setup is in DOS mode only.
