Can't intall windows vista in my xps 700 dell pc


Even if I think it is not teh case..i suggest to check the ram memory ..and see how much you have installed on your system ..remember that for windows Vista the minimum required is !G of ram ..and a CPU ..with speeds over 1,5 G ..(which is not teh case cause this one came with a fast cpu ) ..
But the ram may be the issue ..cause on standard configuration ..it may have only 512 M of ram on ddr2 667 , and in this case will not be capable to run VISTA or windows 7 ..You actually need to upgrade the ram memory by adding at least 1G of ram ..and be sure it will run well ..(adding just a 512 will make it work but will be slow on vista..Vista is known for demanding more resources than any operation system ..I suggest if you upgrade ram memory ..to go right for windows 7 ..This way you will eliminate some speed issues..cause windows 7 is faster ..)
Another thing that may be ..is the space ...To install windows Vista or windows 7 ..you need at least 15 G of space free in the C drive ..where you want to install it ..otherwise will refuse the operation ..and stop the install process..
If you do have the space ..and teh ram memory needed..but just the partition is made too small ..I suggest to back -up files you need and can not recover from other places..and during installing ..format all drive ..by choosing advanced hard disk options ..and delete all partitions ..and make a large C drive ..(at least 40 G ) ..and the rest as you want..
format C drive and install the OS ..
The rest of the partition just create them ..cause it is possible to format them in windows.
By the way .for to be able to do all these you need to start the installing from a boot-able disk or a usb flash made boot-able with the OS on it ..cause if you run it from XP ..it will make issues..Either say you can not upgrade from xp if you run sp 1..or you can not delete the partitions if you have it active ..and running the installing from it ..So ..best way is to make a boot-able flash ..and boot from it ..by choosing it in the boot menu on start ..
A boot-able disk will do the same ..
let me know what exactly you have wrong ..and I will guide you through the process ...

Can you upgrade this pc to vindow vista or window7


Hello

Yes, this computer's Operating system can definitely be upgraded to either windows vista, or Windows7. Firstly you wil need to remember that you will have to upgrade the ram module to at leas 1GB. 2GB being the maximum for this computer.

Also, i would rather load the 32bit version of the operating system than the 64bit.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any further assistance.

Kind regards

Need to upgrade to Intel Pentium 4 2.0/2.4 Ghz IBM Net Vista


if your looking for a new processor hop over to Newegg.com and search for it there, they have wonderful pricing (although Intel is over priced to begin with). If that doesnt work head over to the manufacter's website and contact tech support to see what you need to get to be compatible with you motherboard and RAM.

It's probably cheaper and better long term for you to just upgrade.

Pc upgrade, memory, ram and hard disk


Yes, those are two, not three, ways to upgrade to upgrade your computer.

More RAM keeps more data in "memory", for more-efficient computing (like having a bigger dinner-table makes it easier to serve more guests),
and more hard-disk space allows you to "memorize" more information (music, videos, pictures).

Windows XP is happy with 512MB of RAM,
while anything more than 1536MB of RAM is "over-kill".

Windows Vista is happy with 1536MB of RAM,
while anything more than 3072MB of RAM is "wasted", since the 32-bit version of Vista is limited to using the first 3072MB.

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You

How to upgrade a new compaq presario SR2150NX?


Add more RAM, 512MB ram will slow your computer down because when you run out of ram the computer uses the hard drive as vitrual ram. I have 4GB in my Vista machine and it is faster than XP.

Another suggestion is to turn off the hard drives indexing. Right click on your "C" drive and unhook the "index this drive for faster searching" box.
