Not quite that expensive, yes you can buy Vista and upgrade, but my advice is to install it on a different partition (your notebook will probably list 2 hard drives, this will be one drive with 2 partitions).

Keep your copy of XP as it is because all software still doesn't work on Vista, you will have the option to install on a different drive when you insert the vista cd, this is the best option, but you may have to visit the Dell website for any Vista Driver updates, which is normal, so don't worry if, when installed some of your hardware doesn't work.

Yes. Purchasing a Vista install disc is exactly what you need to do. Install Vista from the disc, then go to the link bellow, download any needed drivers, and you're good to go.

How can I Reformat my Dell Inspiron 630m laptop


I can tell you how to format your drive but you should know that this should be done after you have tried everything else to fix your system.
I will assume a Microsoft Operating System such as XP, Vista or windows 7. Put your cd/DVD in the tray and reboot. When prompted check the box to install the OS. With this method the format is done before the install. Another (more difficult) method is to use a program such as Partiton Magic to create partitions and format your drive.

Dell Inspiron 630m does not do anything.


Jimmy check the power supply adapter, if there is a light on it, it is ok, check for the memory, take it out and clean the contacts using a pencil eraser, reinstall them and try,.

Yes, just the Vista disc. Vista comes in several different versions, so do a little research at Microsoft's site, and forums around the net on the different versions to see which best suits you. Got distracted and forgot the link, here it is. You'll just need to choose your model then it will give you a list of drivers for your machine. After the list comes up, then you can narrow it down by operating system.
