There is a way to only do an upgrade, but I would recommend backing up whatever data you have/need and installing the fresh copy of windows. You may want to purchase a new computer for a few hundred dollars you could get a machine that wouldn't be outdated for years. Here is just one example this is a refurb, but you can get new ones in this price range as well.

This is a very fast computer and would be compatible with everything for years. So for only a couple hundred more then what you would have to pay for windows. This also may be alot easier as installing a fresh copy of windows does not always run smoothly. Sometimes it is hard installing all the current drivers especially on older pc's where they may not even have Window's XPdrivers.
Hope this helps and let me know how it goes.
Thanks,
Lee

Converting from xp to windows 7


You can, but thorough backup of all your XP stuff is needed first, as you will lose much of it. Here is the detailed MS guide

Unless you have a genuine copy of W7 already, I'd recommend going to W8.1 , as it has now stabilised and will be supported for much longer than W7. However your hardware would need to be good enough. From XP there is no automated way to check this, instead

Hey, just use Zinstall XP7. It can upgrade to Windows 7 and keep your programs and files and everything. No reason to stay on XP, I think - 7 is awesome

Contact microsoft and explain the situation. You will be probably told you are a victim of software piracy etc etc.
Which, from the way you describe thw white CD envelope is very likely.

Hard though it sounds, you might need to buy a new licence.

I turn on my puter it goes to the user login and then logs off


Hi,

I've run into this problem too often lately. So far I haven't managed to find a decent fix for it :( I've ended up having to backup the computer's data, reinstall windows, and restore all the data.

From the times I've seen it you get to the login screen, click on your user, get the "Loading personal Settings", a quick flash of the desktop, then back to the login screen saying "saving personal settings". It would do this in both safe mode and normal mode, so I was never able to try turning off startup software or services.

Booting to the windows XP disc and running a check disc might help, but from my experience with the problem you will probably need to reinstall windows. Hopefully someone else has a better idea.

Best of luck :)

You'll probably find this website most useful. This website was designed for users who want to dualboot that already have XP on their machine. There is a link to a how-to for users who already have Vista installed and want XP also. Good luck and I hope this helps.
