You can up grade from 98 to xp. As far as more speed & memory that comes from a few more components than just upgrading memory. It matters on the limits of what you already have. A larger hard drive & more memory definitly boost things up but your cpu's limits will determine the actual hardware/software upgrades your system can benifit from. You'll have to get the specs on maximums for your model. If you can tell us what you have now it would help to determine a better answer than guessing.

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    How to Upgrade Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition Profiles to Windows XP...


    This guide describes how to upgrade a Microsoft Microsoft Windows 98-based, or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition-based client that has user profiles to a Microsoft Windows XP-based client.
    The following steps enable the Windows 98 and Windows Millennium Edition (Me) profiles to be retained throughout the process.
    Your best method to retain the profiles is to join the domain during the upgrade installation process.
    Otherwise, you must use a workaround method to transfer the profile information over to the Windows XP profile.
    During the upgrade installation process, at the networking section, the administrator is offered the choice to join a domain or a workgroup.
    If you join the domain at this juncture, you ensure that all the existing profiles are migrated successfully to the Windows XP-based installation.
    If you did not join the computer to the domain during the upgrade process, you must use the following workaround method:

    Join the upgraded computer to the target domain.
    All applicable users must log on and log off (which generates a profile).
    Copy the appropriate Application Data folder from the Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me profiles to the newly created user profiles.

    How do I upgrade my laptop from 98 to xp without licence or cd


    The only way you can upgrade your Operating System is by installing a new version. Windows XP would be your best option.
    You can get a genuine Windows XP from a computer store, online or from a friend who can give it to you for free.

    I have bouht hp deskjet d1500 series ihave fitted it but it said ihave to upgrade my computer to 200 from 98 please could you helpme thankyourita


      The problem is that this particular Deskjet does not have any software drivers that are compatible with Windows 98.  Only for Operating Systems that are running Windows 2000 or later. Which includes XP and Vista. The only alternative is to do some research on other printers and make sure that they will be compatible with windows 98.
     Of course, there is always an option to upgrading your computer to  Windows 2000 or Xp....

    Big problem no windows 98 un-locking Key


    if the windows xp isn't an upgrade from 98 then it will install on your computer over the 98 without problem, bearing in mind that all information on the disk will be lost once you format it with the disk, but if it's an upgrade disk you might have to check with your friends to see if they have the same version of 98, the other thing if the computer came with 98 installed the product key should be on the case on the back or the side is normal postioning for this altho some techs use to put in the inside of the case.
    hope this helps.

    Software prerequisite


    I don't believe so. You might need an older version of office installed on your pc though.
