No you can't. Given that it's a Dell and it came with Windows XP pre-installed, it's an OEM of Windows version. The biggest drawback of an OEM version (at least in the USA) is that its license it permanently binds to the computer first it is installed on. He can never legally be moved to another computer, sold, or given to outside (except with the original computer). If the computer dies or is stolen, your license dies with him.
And let me ask you as if you checked to make sure everything on the Dell is compatible with Windows 7, and there are Windows 7 drivers for all your hardware that requires it.
I have a DELL Inspiron 6400 running Windows Vista. The backlight turns off when the charger is plugged after about 10 to 15 minutes. If I shine a torch on the screen, I see about the display is always. If I select change user from the menu start or stop / restart the machine, the backlight turns on and will last for another 10 to 15 minutes. I tried in safe mode and the same thing happens. Can someone help me with this problem?
It could be the inverter Board or the backlight itself on the way to the outside. Whatever it is, it is definitely a hardware problem and it will take a good repairman to fix. You can contact Dell and see what they would charge to fix this, just to see if it would be more cost-effective to buy a new laptop or have it repaired. Because it is 5 years since it is manufacturing, you can be better to save your pennies for a new :-(
I am running Windows XP on an old Dell 8100 and connect to my router with a Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band USB adapter. The adapter stops frequently. Is there some settings in Windows XP, which is the cause? The adapter turns off intermittently for no apparent reason and without error message (other than the message that the internet connection is off).
The "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" error if there is a corruption on the hard disk. I suggest that you run a Chkdsk command.
Follow these steps:
- Click Start.
- Choose run.
- In the box type "cmd" and press, Ok.
- Type chkdsk/r (note: there is a space after chkdsk)
- Restart the computer and allow to run the disk check.
Important: Running chkdsk on the drive if bad sectors are found on the disk hard when chkdsk attempts to repair this area if all available on which data may be lost
I have recently updated from Windows XP to Windows 7 and for some reason that my computer won't let me change my resolution. It is stuck on 640 x 480, and it looks TERRIBLE! Can someone tell me how to solve this problem, because I barely know ANYTHING about these things.
Thanks to NYGnat

I have installed:
"82845 G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphic Chipset Driver Version 126.96.36.19942 for Windows 7"
on my Demension 2400 AND solved the mess of graphics driver created by
the "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" Windows 7 automatically installs.
I used Philip Yip's "Unofficial Guide of Installation Windows"
to install it VIA Device Manager it offers.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400. The computer crashed and the computer shows now no hard drive installed. I removed the hard drive and put it in one of my other computers, and my computer does not recognize the drive as a hard disk.
I put another hard drive in my Dell, (same 40 MB; but different mfg) and the new hard drive is not recognized as a hard drive. I go into the configuration and it shows the diskette and cd installed, but not installed hard drive. Looking at the motherboard, is there that one connection for HDD in these models, so cannot plug into any other manor. Put the jumper to master on and cable that SELECT on but again Dell shows no HDD installed.
The orig Dell hard drive, does not present as a drive in my work computer, but I'm trying to replace it with that.
When I insert the OS disc that came with the system, it starts repairing and loads the files, but cannot format the hard drive and doesn't declare any installed hard drive.
Assuming that the drive hard orig failed, and the new hard drive is a drive to work, are there specifics on something special that needs to be done when you install a new hard drive in a Dell Dimension 2400? I am unable to find all the technical manuals on how to install a new hard drive in my Dell, even though I have all of the orig CD that came from Dell.
Any help/thoughts would be appreciated.
I have a Dell Dimension 4500 XP pro and IE8 will not respond.
When I click it it flashes up on top of the screen and disappears. To this effect, I can't watch the updates from Microsoft.
Any ideas, anyone please?
It seems that my problem is solved.
I removed a lot of the years of updates then run my drive setup and turned off and went to bed.
When I turned on this morning I had to install updates. It was the only thing I was worried, and as this seems to be fixed, I am glad I use Firefox as my browser.
I installed Speccy and he ran and it shows as running windows updates and it works correctly.
Thanks a lot for all your help guys.
I have Dell ispron B130 running windows xp, how do I print what is displayed on the screen using the PRNT SCRN key?
The 'Print screen' button is misnamed. In fact, what happens when you press it, it is that an image of the screen is copied to the Clipboard. You must then open an application that can work with images (paint works) and paste in the opened window (or right-click > paste or edit > paste). Then you can use the regular print of this application (for example, the file > print).
You can also download free IrfanView. It is a very handy utility. It allows you to open and view a wide variety of image file formats and also has the capability of the bulk renaming of files and - for your current number - capture screen images and prints them out.
I bought this desktop computer Dell Dimension 2400 in 2003 as a wedding gift for my daughter and son-in-law. They are busy and it was not much used, but it just got to the point where he needed the reinstalled op. I've done it before on my computer so I suggest you to do it for them. When my daughter went to recover the disks supplied with the PC there is no House of windows xp included reinstall op edition drive and I don't think I ever had one with the PC. Other CDs were there. I decided to try to use reinstall windows xp edition drive family of my Dell Dimension 2200 op. I was told that it was OK to do this when I spoke with a Dell technician. When it finished formatting and installation of the op I found that I did not set up an internet connection. In Device Manager, the Ethernet hardware has question marks by them and are highlighted in yellow, even though I had put in the resource CD and downloaded that and everything on all the other drives right after the installation. If I could get on the internet I could download the drivers and other necessary things for other minor problems, I'm having too large icons, etc. The only difference between the Dell Dimension 2400 and my Dell D 2200 is the 2400 internet ready came from the factory, and I added the ethernet card in my Dell Dimension 2200, Linksys. Otherwise, they both use the same broadband, Roadrunner, which is always on cable modems. What can I do now?
The product key is the 25-character code on the sticker on the computer case. Keys for the home edition are not compatible with other editions (Pro, Media Center, etc.).

Trying to get my old Dell back in action, but I ran into a problem. NO INTERNET.
I have the WIFI in my house but I can't connect wirelessly with the desktop computer.
I have a NetGear Wireless - N Dual Band, but dell WNDA3100 USB won't pick it up. The flash player is on, but it will not install the new software. It is said there was a problem and it probably won't work correctly.
Any ideas? Thank you!
first go to the device driver and uninstall everything dealing with netgear.
also if it is listed in Add/Remove to uninstall and restart.
above is a search page with instructions for installing xp
you have version 1 or 2?
just a thought you have wireless zero config service started/automatic services?
After all your updates should be installed which will disable the autorun, so that when you insert a usb key, nothing will happen until you go to my computer and click on the device to open it, this was done so that you would have a chance to scan a usb usb being one of the fastest ways to spread a virus If she had previously plugged into an infected pc.
