I wanted to upgrade my software to windows vista, but it the vista upgrade advisor said that my computer only has 384 mb when to get the full package of windows vista, I need 512 mb... I have a warranty that expires in August, and was wondering if this best buy could just take care of the whole upgrade operation...

Re: 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.

You should of used the Windows 7 Advisor before upgrading to Windows 7 from Vista. The advisor will indicate the hardware and software updates and changes you'll need before performing the upgrade. If you've already installed Windows 7, you can go to the Microsoft Update page and see what kind of updates you need for Windows 7 to work in you laptop. Also, go to the HP website and check the drivers download page for your computer with Window 7 installed, download the drivers, and then install them one at a time for each device. You won't need to talk to a human to do this.
I will recommend that you download and run the free Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. It helps find issues with your computer’s hardware, devices that might affect installing Windows 7. Go to the Windows 7 Compatibility Center find direct links to drivers, updates, and downloads.
