can I replace windows xp SP3 with windows 7?

I have a laptop compaq presario R4000 with microsoft windows xp service pack 3

Can I just download windows 7 to replace?




1. you can just download and replace the product, you will have to pay for Windows 7

2 I can't find support for Windows 7, which means that you need to find the drivers and the other you.

My suggestion: stick with XP, to be honest, I like XP over Windows 7.

Kind regards.

  • Can I replace Windows XP SATA drive in HP Compaq dc7600sff with old computer win98se IDE hard drive

    I have a Compaq dc7600 I want to use to replace an old computer that I recovered the drive on.

    The 7600 has a 80g ATA drive running Windows XP, but I want to remove it and get the older one with win98se and I need that I can't replace programs. I can adapt physically OK, bios hardware lists change, but does not start win98

    Hi Paul

    I changed the SATA emulation settings combined and it worked well, but as you say, I had a hard time looking for drivers, but I found some that I couldn't find (for example sound/display) I adapted the old PCI cards, I had and this all works very well. It will certainly do the job I want.

    Thanks for the reply and the solution

  • Can I replace the MK2546GSX HDD with MK2576GSX


    I have a laptop, Sony Vaio VGN-CR36G/B, which has the MK2546GSX from Toshiba HARD drive and chkdsk reports bad sectors in it. I would replace this hard drive, but I couldn't exactly find the product in the market to buy.

    Please can someone help me to find a replacement for Toshiba MK2546GSX?

    My questions are

    Can I replace Toshiba MK2546GSX with Toshiba MK2576GSX? Are they the same? Is there a difference in its connections or Sockets?


    Can you suggest a replacement for Toshiba MK2546GSX?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thank you


    First of all, you can use all the HDD from different manufacturers that are compatible with your laptop.

    The HARD drive TOSHIBA MK2546GSX seems to bear 250GB - 5400U/min and 7-pin S - ATA (SATA 150 MB/s)

    This means that your laptop supports the SATA controller and you should be able to also use the other SATA 2.5 SATA drives!

  • Qosmio X 500 - 10W - can I replace the HARD drive with another?


    I have a Qosmio X 500 - 10W with two drive HARD Toshiba MK5055GSX 500 GB 5400 RPM 8 MB? SATA II but is one of the hs so I'm wondering if I can be replaced by a more powerful style, drive HARD 750 GB 7200 RPM / min 16 MB Toshiba courses?

    Thank you


    Your question is a bit hard to understand, but I think you want to replace the HARD drive with another (faster) model, right?

    Well, that s no problem. 7200 RPM hard drives works, they are a little stronger, but they're faster so if you need more performance without problem.
    750 GB or more are also no problem because the SATA interface is not the limited capacity. Theoretically 1 TB or more should also work.

    Anyway, you can buy the 750Go you mentioned that it will work. :)

  • Can I replace the standard keyboard with a backlit keyboard on this laptop?

    The laptop is the Pavilion 15 p267-nr. I know that the new buildings have an option for a backlit keyboard, but I don't know about this particular model. It is possible that I would take it to a technician to do because this laptop seems very complicated to make upgrades to.  The keyboard that is currently a has not all icons in the F5 key, which is where the backlit function should be enabled on.

    Either click on the tab "Memory Advisor" and select your computer by using the drop down menus or click on the tab 'System scanner' and let it scan your computer.  You will get all the information on this type of memory will work on your computer.  If you think that it is too expensive to buy Crucial memory, you will at least know what to look for.

    You must use the type of RAM your motherboard was built to use.

    As far as 3 beeps are concerned, you are right that they are related to a problem of memory - or with the controller on your motherboard.  If you have several sticks of RAM now, look at the User Guide to determine which slot should be used if you have installed and then stick out the other sticks.  If you still have the problem, remove the stick in that you left and replace it with the others.  If you get the beep is used regardless of the memory card, the problem is more likely to be with the motherboard.

  • How can I replace the same clips with the same interval of time (same settings)?

    Dear Adobe Premiere CS5 Forum,

    I have the following problem, and I would look forward to receiving solutions:

    As I couldn't cut my video with clips in avi codecs (it is very difficult to cut in avi codecs, except that you have a very fast computer), I converted my raw clips in lower codecs. Then I cut my video in low quality codecs. My video is now ready to export.

    But before I want to export my video, I need to replace all the clips in avi codes so that my video is in good quality.

    Now the problem:

    How can I replace the clips (poor quality video codec codec avi), in order to have the same clips in a different codec always the same interval of time. I want the replaced clip immediately have the same interval of time.

    For example: a raw whole clip takes 2 minutes. But just a part / interval of the clip (from 01:00 minute 01:10 minutes) is shown in the video. Now I want to replace this clip with the same clip in avi codec. But it must be the same interval (from 01:00 minute 01:10 minutes).

    I tried to replace a clip. But they each have a different time interval (the lower quality clip is from 01:00 to 01:10 minutes and if I would like to replace the same clip in avi codec is the time interval between 0:00 to 0:10 minutes).

    How can I replace the clip with the same interval of time?

    Thanks in advance


    Hold down the Alt + Shift; It is Shift that maintains the reference timecode. In addition, this will work only if your proxy clips contains timecode. If they all start to 00:00:00:00, this will not work for you.

  • How can I replace the big picture with the poplet image and add an internal focus on the big picture?

    I need to replace the enlarged image with poplet image when you click on & also need a zoom internal on the big picture. It doesn't seem to be a simple way to do this. Js is available for this please?

    Just drag brett [at] email Glenn.

    I think that your after...

    -Wide product displayed by default, click left and right you have a cursor of all images of poplet

    -Hover over the big picture without clicking, it's a zoom of the image or (which I think would be better) you click that or one of the poplet images and you have a model coming with a larger image.

  • How can I replace Windows XP software?

    Windows XP software

    I have a laptop model Gateway MX 6027 who had a hard disk crash. I got the replacement of the hard disk and install. The problem is that the gateway backup requires information on the hard disk of re - install. Now, I don't have a valid number of software and product key but no software and gateway and Microsoft want money even to talk to me. All suggestions will be appreciated.

    Under the terms of its license from Microsoft, gateway was required to provide a mechanism for the restoration of Windows.  Often, large manufacturers like gateway meet this requirement by installing a hidden partition on the hard drive that can be used to restore the computer to the State that it was when it left the factory.

    Unfortunately, if the disk fails, you can not use this hidden partition.

    Gateway may (its for a long time I finally bought a Gateway computer) you have the opportunity to create a set of recovery CD.  I guess that no option has been provided... or you ignored.

    At this point, your only recourse is to persuade bridge to provide recovery media.  They may or may not do it (they can claim that they have more XP available media since he stopped on sale if long ago) and if they do, it may or may not be free.

    Because you have a computer built by an OEM, Microsoft won't help you.  See (although if the front door tells you that there no XP media, maybe you can convince some Microsoft customer service representative friendly to deal with your situation as if "you bought the software from a System Builder who is no longer in business".

    If your original hard drive is at all operational (the term "hard drive crash" is often used incorrectly), you may be able to use the cloning software to get the content of the disk set on your new or drive unless the partition to restore on your new drive.

  • How can I replace my 2008 TC with a 2016 news?

    Use the old 500 GB TC since LAN with two laptop computers and two AP Express as Extender.

    Just bought a 2 to TC to replace the 500 GB TC.

    Some critics of the new TC reviews say just turn on the new TC and it copies the settings from the old TC and off you go. I think the steps are left out of this process.

    First question, is the new TC turned on when the old TC is turned on and connected to a cable modem or vice versa?

    Second question, how to use the AP utility to facilitate this? I want to continue to use extenders of MONKEY.

    I will also need to set up Time Machine, but I can handle it once the new TC is the host of the local network.

    Thank you;

    Let the old TC in walking normally on your network.

    Connect an Ethernet cable from one of the <>- on the old TC LAN ports to the "O" on the new TC WAN port

    Turn on the new TC and let it run a few minutes

    Click the WiFi icon at the top of the screen on your Mac and are looking for a list of the new AirPort base station

    Just below that, click on the Time Capsule.  The example below shows an AirPort Extreme as the new Base Station, but on your screen, you will see the Time Capsule

    When you click Time Capsule, which will get the 'Assistant' Installation running.  It will take a few seconds to analyze things and offer a Setup program based on what it "sees".

    The Wizard usually guesses correctly, but in this case, it will guess wrong, because the installer suggested using the new TC to extend the network will not be the configuration that you want.  The example below shows an AirPort Express, but you will see the new time Capsule on your screen with the old TC.

    Click the other Options in the lower left corner of the window

    Select the option replace an existing device and click Next

    The next window will ask you to confirm what product you want to replace and explain the parameters of the old TC will be transferred to the new TC. When this happens, the old TC will automatically reset back to default settings.

    Once the installation process completed, powering down of the entire network and replace the old with the new TC TC, using the same hook ups.

    Turn on the modem first and let it run for a few minutes

    Start the next device connected to a modem and let it run for a minute

    Keep a minute out one at a time until the entire network is back of boot devices

    With luck, everything will work the way it was before

    You need to configure Time Machine to revisit the new TC.

    After doing this several times, I am not convinced that the process of 'Replace' is just as easy and faster than the simple implementation the new TC as a new device and simply using the same wireless name, same of passwords, etc. as the old TC.  But, users appear to want to use replace it option rather than doing things manually.

    It's your call. Good luck!
