Hey im Sarah, So iv got old my old laptop. Its a Compaq Armada M700, it did run on Windows 2000 but my uncle put XP Professional Build 2600 on it. it works but i cant get the latest msn internet explorer ect. When i turn it on i have to choose to run xp, there is a set up version o.s in the list how would delete this? And how i can i learn to get this laptop in as good working order as possible? Is it worth it? I have just read that you can upgrade to windows xp professional if u had windows NT, which i have the cd and manual still in the wrapper. this might hav been an old page thought. and do u think a 'clean install'? is a good thing to do? Any advice

A clean install would probably be the best thing to do.
Over time, all computers pick up bits and pieces of programs of patchs, and programs no longer used.
So with a clean fresh install, it will not have to deal with any of the "leftovers"

This is my personal choice any time I want to get the best performance out of an older machine, format and load.

Need Instructions on this...


In order to upgrade to XP with a fresh install, you will need to purchase an XP disc, then it's simple. Upon start up you need to go to the boot menu or set the cd drive to boot before the hard drive in the bios. Then insert the disc and follow the directions. At one point, you will need to delete the existing operating system in order to install the new. Once this is done, then you will need to format the drive using the full NTFS format, not the quick format. Then it's all down hill, just follow the direction. After the install, you will need to go to Compaq's support site and download any drivers needed. You can find the needed drivers in the device manager. I realize you would like to get around the XP purchase, but unfortunately, there's no way around it.

Armada M700 Specs


Full sytem requirements of FL Studio:


  • Pentium III or Athlon XP (any processor supporting SSE instructions) or Intel Mac with Bootcamp (running XP or Vista) or running Parallels
  • Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista (32 & 64 bit)
  • 256MB ram
  • 200MB free harddisk space
  • Windows-compatible soundcard with DirectSound drivers. ASIO drivers are required for audio recording (FL installer comes with generic Asio4All drivers)
If your system meets the minimum system requirements, it'll be your actual system resources (memory, CPU, ...) that could impose limits on your FL Studio projects.
The faster your CPU the more channels you will be able to run simultaneously and/or the more effects you will be able to use. The more memory you have the larger the samples you will be able to load.
