I'd be very careful about putting Vista on an old laptop - Vista uses masses and masses of resources and your processor might not be capable of coping even with a memory upgrade. The following site will answer all of your questions and can also check if your computer can cope with Vista.

Want to upgrade from vista to windows 10


The Microsoft website will give details of how to upgrade and the costs involved, though buying the new operating system on hardware and performing a drive format and a clean new load could make more sense.

A computer that previously ran Vista will probably be a few years old and therefore have a low specification so you could be disappointed with the performance when running Windows 10.

I have a very old pc originally running Windows 95 that copes well with XP without perceptible loss of functionality for modest purposes, which makes no sense at all.
On the other hand a relatively high-spec laptop I own needs a fair amount of patience running Windows 7.

You have to try these things but the results aren't assured and it is a bit like making a wager with your cash. Might be more economic to buy an up to date machine.

haha. very funny. I have upgraded my laptop to windows 7 and am very satisfied with it except for one thing. The scroll keys on the touchpad are no long supported under Windows 7 vs. Vista. So, I was, like you disappointed that this happened. Maybe I should have been satisfied with windows vista, for that part of the computer working under vista but not 7.

I, however, like the windows 7 operating system very much compared to the slower buggier vista operating system.

Good luck on buying new pc or laptop computers that employ windows 7 or above (for the future).

If you upgrade your operating system like from windows xp to windows vista, you need to install new hardware driver for your computer like for LAN, webcam, WAN and others because the old driver is only compatible with the old operating system and not with VISTA operating system. Solution would are, download webcam and WAN driver for Windows Vista and install it into your computer. Don't just upgrade your computer because the configuration is not the same with the old operating system. If problem still exist, just upgrade the service pack from 2 to 3. There is available install for upgrading the service pack of each operating system. and surely all your hardwares will function.

How want to downgrade win vista to xp pro hp compaq v3000


If you have a Windows XP Pro installation disk, put it in the optical drive, restart your computer, on startup, go to BIOS settings (usually press [Delete] and set the optical drive as first boot device. Save changes and exit. When the computer starts it usually says to press any key to start from CD. Press any key and the windows installation will start. Make sure you format C: and you will downgrade to Windows XP Pro. If you want to upgrade to Vista again, you will need to know the keyboard sequence to start Vista from Its partition or have Vista install disk.

Will i be able to update an old computer to windows vista?


Hi, 
      Just download the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor 1.0 from 

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=42b5ac83-c24f-4863-a389-3ffc194924f8&DisplayLang=en

Install that, and it will check your system to see if it will run on windows vista, and which version of Vista would suit the system you have.

Regarding a warranty/windows vista upgrade


You can get it done at Bestbuy, but their very expensive. Take it to a small computer shop in your area, you'll get the same technical service at a much better price. Here at my shop, I can undercut the local Bestbuy by $100 every time. As far as the ram goes, 384 will run Vista, but it will be a little sluggish. Upgrading the ram will improve the performance of the machine and is always a good idea.
