I'm sorry if this has been covered, and it's proabably a "dumb question", but...
This "old" machine works great. It came with WIN 95, but Gateway mailed me a Win 98 upgrade disk within a couple of months. Do I need to be buy a full version of XP or an upgrade? Thanks!
You would want the upgrade. BUT, XP needs a pretty decent machine to be run on. Yours sounds like its a little on the old side.
Windows XP Upgrade Advisor
"Microsoft posted their Windows XP Upgrade Advisor tool for download on their Web site. The Upgrade Advisor is a tool that checks your system hardware and software to see if it is ready for upgrade to Windows XP. If you run Upgrade Advisor while you are connected to the Internet, and if your system needs updates that are available on the Windows Update Web site, Upgrade Advisor will find and install the updates for you. "
Thanks for the prompt reply. I'm going there now to check it out. We paid a lot for this computer when we got it, so it really didn't outdate that fast. It's a Pentium II, 400 MHZ, 128 RAM, 10 Gig hardrive (that's not near full). It does everything we want it to. I'm not even sure I want XP, just wanted to know in case I decide I want it. Thanks again!
