Look up your system by serial # on the manufacturer's web site. There you will be able to download sound drivers, manuals and more. This will give you all the information you need, such as how much RAM it can hold, etc.

You will also be able to consult their sales support to get the type and model of memory you would need.

Upgradng to XP will require you to replace a few drivers anyway, so go ahead and do that first and download at least the network card's driver beforehand so that you can install that and go online for whatever other drivers you end up needing.

HP Pavilion g7 Notebook PC I loaded WINDOWS 10 free upgrade now get an error message when trying to watch TV show in hulu plus. Sorry an error has occurred while streaming this video


after speaking to a computer repair shop, it was explained to me that the win 10 up grade causes problems as it up grades an existing system( compatibility problems ) . It was stated that if the win 10 was installed properly as the operating system in it's own right there is no problems
I suggest that you speak with a repair shop and see if that information is correct
basically it is this you could not up grade win xp to win 7 even if you had sp 3 for xp so to upgrade win7 to win 10 and not expect problems is a big ask

I can not install the sound drive


Hi there !

If you successfully installed the sound driver in your computer to run your hardware device, I suggest you try to update your Windows XP through internet to be able to upgrade your operating system or download Windows SP3 upgrade installer to make updates through internet.

After that try to run on safe mode to correct or fix some error on faulty installation or too many drivers installed with the same drivers.

Good Luck.

I HAVE A 6 YEAR OLD DELL WITH SP 2. IS THAT THE LATEST UPGRADE?


Hi,

The latest service pake for XP is SP3, you can download and install it by performing a Microsoft Update by clicking on the the start menu and above where it says "All Programs" look for Windows/Microsoft Update.

Once SP3 is installed i recommend you perform another MS update to update SP3.

Failed attempt to upgrade to XP


Do you know how to get to the DOS prompt? Or do you have an ME floppy that you can boot from? If so, you can run the DOS FORMAT command to remove the partition that XP created. The syntax is here:

http://www.computerhope.com/formathl.htm#03

BTW, upgrading to XP from an ME system can be very tricky because of the incompatibilities between hardware. On the systems that I have upgraded, I've disconneced/removed all but the necessary hardware, including floppy drives, modems, sound cards, etc. And if you still have problems, consider a newer/replacement video card.
