Hi, can someone help me please? I'm not a computer expert, i don't know a lot about these things. I"ve got a home computer about 2 years but now it's running slow. I haven't changed any setting or installed extra programs. All the programs i wanted to work with where installed by the shop dealer. I've put a new operating system on, changed from windows xp to windows 7. Any one can help out please?

You can update your Operating system from Windows XP to Windows 7. Your computer must meet the minimum requirements for Windows 7 installation. I will give you specifications of windows XP and Windows 7, so you can install any operating system according to your computer specifications
The minimum system requirements in installing windows XP:

  • 300MHZ processor with 128 M of RAM
  • 1.5 Gig space available on hard drive.
  • Video adapter 800 x 600 resolution.

 While these are the minimum requirements in installing Windows 7:

  • 1 (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) with 1 (GB) RAM (32-bit)
  • For 64-bit (x64) 1 GH processor with 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit)
  • For 64-bit 20 GB space available and DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0

Before upgrading the Operating System from Windows XP to Windows 7, you must be ready with the checklist.

1 GHz processor
16 GB available disk space for 32 bit
20 GB available disk space for 64 bit
1 GB of RAM for 32 bit
2 GB of RAM for 64 bit
Grahic drives with WDDN 1.0
Drivers for hardware and software
Install kit, DVD and other related accessories

You need to have back-up files and or CD to ready for migration. But in this case, I strongly suggest to start from scratch and let all files ready for deletion if they are not that important.

These are the requirements needed for Windows upgrade from XP to 7.

There got to be a reason why your computer is slow moving, and you have to double check your computer's specification if those are met mention above.

If 1 components missed, then you need to upgrade your computer hardware.
