Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

Have Windows ME,seems to be outdated. Do not make software for it anymore. Would like to upgrade to Vista.Can't hook up anything to it. Have to be Vista or XP. Which is better for a Compaq Presario 5000

Answers :

XP is more suitable than Vista. You will be better off replacing the computer, even with a new operating system yours will still be very outdated and unable to run many modern programs.
The Compaq Presario 5000 is not powerful enough to run Vista so XP is your best bet. I assume you have the standard 512MB RAM which will be fine for XP Once you outgrow that you'll need to go for more powerful hardware. By that time the new Windows 7 should have been officially released.
