If your machine was new and came with Vista pre-installed, you'll need to purchase Windows XP (assuming you do not already have your old Windows XP CD). Once you've got the XP CD, you can pop it in and install XP if you do not want Vista.

Windows XP verses Vista


Windows XP is much more stable than Vista. You will also have to purchase more memory if you decide to go with Vista. So many people as for XP over Vista that Dell and HP have started offering it as a default option. As far as upgrading goes, it is pretty much inevitable that at some point you will have to upgrade your Operating System. Windows 7 is the next one coming out.

Hope this helps. If you have further questions feel free to reply.

I cant install windows xp on my computer


Hi :-).

OK. You say that "You can't put it on", so by this I presume that there was previously an Operating System on your Machine? If so, was it Windows XP or Windows Vista?
If you had Windows Vista on there, but did not like the look and feel of it, and decided to remove it so that you can put Windows XP on there, then it's a lot more trickier to format Drives that have been shipped out with Windows Vista OEM, then what it would be normally.
If your Laptop had XP on there, but for one reason or another, it needed to be reinstalled, then let me know and I'll try and help you out a bit more based on the answer you reply with.

You can purchase a copy of XP and install it, but it may void your warranty with the manufacturer. You can also try running programs in Vista using XP compatibility mode (right click on the program and select properties and then select the compatibility tab). There is also a great site for tuning Vista performance www.vistax64.com

Cant get vista off my pakardbell i media x2414 i would like to put xp on it


Dear Sir.

In order to get xp on your computer.

You need to install windows xp by formating your computer by using the windows xp operating system cd.

If your computer comes vista installed on that you need to get xp cd from your packerd bell support.

HP DESKTOP COMPUTER #SR1365CL


Sorry to inform you but you cant downgrade from vista to xp on this model I have found most systems that are designed to run vista lose several drivers when downgraded to xp.

the only solution that will restore drivers would be to reload vista by purchasing an upgrade version of vista (this allows an upgrade from xp to vista and will restore drivers only catch is your xp operating system must be xp home with sp2(service pack 2).

When you removed vista from your machine you actually downgraded by replacing the vista operating system with XP.
