It depends on the model and it's capabilities. Most machine designed for or that have Windows 98 on them are only upgradable to Windows XP. Some don't have the capabilities to run XP, and none of them have the capabilities to Vista. If you will post the make, model, hard drive size, and the amount of memory of your laptop, I'll be able to tell you if it's upgradeable, what is required for the upgrade, and the approx cost.

I have Vista lab top hp and I need to upgrade to windows ten or do I have to do seven first


you have to have a previous system to up grade
there are problems with the upgrade with many questions to this site with problems associated with the up grade from incompatibility issues
it is better to get win 10 and download rather than up grade from an existing operating system

Is it possible to upgrade the processor for the sony vaio pcg 81114l


most likely this cannot be done, the sockets for the processors have changed twice since then. I don't think you would see a great prefprmace change if you could. You might thim=nk about upgrading to a more powerful core I7 from that generation, but you would need to find out which mother board you have and which processors it supports. Unless you are skilled in laptop repair, I would pass on the upgrade.

Can i upgrade my toshiba satellite m55-s135 processor?


It is possible to upgrade the processor but its too technical thing and your current motherboard should also support the upgraded board. I think it will be easy if you just increase the RAM.

I have laptop valiant 5340AS, WITH WINDOWS 98, 4 GB H.D. AND 32 MB RAM, IS POSSIBLE CHANGE TO WINDOWS XP?


The minimum RAM required for XP is 128MB. You could upgrade the memory to 512MB or something. Under 512MB it will not work smooth.
The minimum required HDD is 1.5 GB. You have 4 GB. It is not that much, but it'll work.

The minimum required CPU is 300MHz. If your CPU is less than that, it'll not work.

I personaly would not recommend to upgrade to XP, the laptop may become very slow. i would advise to try it, and if it is not working smooth, then rollback to 98.

If you would like something newer than 98, I would recommend 2000.

Before you begin, be sure to go to Lenova Website and download the appropriate XP software & drivers and burn them to a CD or flash drive. You will need them after the install is completed.

Upgrade vista home premium


As per my knowledge, there is no version of Vista called Vista Professional like in Windows XP.
Make sure what is the version to which you want to upgrade to from Vista Home Premium to Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.
The available versions of Vista Operating Systems along with the features supported from the Link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/compare-editions/default.aspx

However, if you want to Upgrade the current version of Vista to a higher version like Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, you need to purchase Vista Anytime Upgrade kit from any retail store or directly from Microsoft.
You can find the required information related to Anytime Upgrade Kit from the link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

However, make sure that you had created the Recovery Disks for your notebook using which you will be able to reinstall the preinstalled Operating Sytem along with all the Preinstalled Applications and Drivers after which you need to use the Vista Upgrade Kit to upgrade to higher version of Vista.
However, if you are currently having a 32 Bit Vista preinstalled in the Notebook, it is not possible to upgrade to a 64 Bit Vista since you can upgrade only a 32 Bit of Operating System to a higher version of 32 Bit Operating System and a 64 Bit Operating System to a higher version of 64 Bit Operating System.
Hope this helps....
