Can someone please tell me in simple terms how i can delete xp pro from my sons very slow old pc and install windows 2000?
Let me explain he has a old pc which was brought with 2000 installed the person who had it befor him upgraded to xp pro which has slowed it down to the point it takes 15 mins to open a page.
We figure if we get rid of xp it will be faster. Now i am new to all this stuff so please can you advice with simple instructions. Im not stupid just never done it before and dont want to mess the whole thing up more.
XP would slow an old computer down if there is a small processor and very little memory in there. Can you post the spec of the computer? Right-click on the "My Computer" icon on the desktop, choose properties from the menu and tell us what it says about which processor and how much memory is installed?
Hi thanks for the response i have done that but no details are coming up there. All i can say is its an old packard bell imedia which was originally windows millenium and the guy upgraded to xp pro which even i know will slow it down.
On systems with the original software your serial number can be read from a program called 'SnapSys' or a software tool on this page. Snapsys can be found under 'Packard Bell Support' in the start menu. When started, the titlebar of the program will display your serial number.
