Downgrade back to windows XP RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    ok heres my question when i got my PC it had windows XP and i had 512 mb of ram but my mom wanted me to get Vista. So when she upgraded it i then only had 448 mb of ram. I was like what the heck i can barely even play my pc games or mmorpgs without horrible lag. I would just buy more RAM but it cost to much. So yeah my questions are....

     

    1. How do i downgrade back to XP?

     

     

    2. If i were to downgrade back will all my information and files still be there?

     

     

    3. If i did downgrade will i have how much RAM i started with when I had XP or will it be lower then what i had with Vista?

     

    please reply back someone!!! Big Smile

  • Unless you want to go through the time and trouble of reformatting your hard drive and reinstalling Windows XP from scratch, I would suggest you purchase and install 2GB of RAM and Windows Vista will perform better than Windowx XP.

  • It all depends on the type of RAM your computer was designed to use.  RAM is pretty inexpensive nowadays.
