I have a HP Pavilion 7920 Windows ME.(kids use it for games & homework) I was wondering if I can upgrade it to XP. If I can how would I go about doing that. I have a HP that has XP on it can I use the CD's that came with it.

Thanks,
Annie

Howdy:

Well, the first thing you need to do is go to the Microsoft XP homepage and run their Windows XP Upgrade Advisor to see if the system is capable of handling XP.

Once that is determined, you will need to go out and purchase a new retail version of XP as your HP cd's won't work and using them is also illegal.

Keep in mind that the upgrade advisor will list bare minimum specs AND if your computer is close to the minimum, it will run slow.

let us know the current specs and we can advise you on this.
