This are the things that will help you upgrade your laptop.\015\012\015\012\015\012first of all replace the ram memory with a higher configuration.then get your hard disk reformat by reinstalling fresh operating system like windows xp-sp2 or windows vista.install all the latest updates and drivers and its done.\015\012\015\012please do not forget to rate the solution.
My guess is that you have Windows 98 and want to upgrade to Windows XP.\015\012\015\012You'll need to contact Dell to see what is the cost for maximum memory for your system.\015\012\015\012If your hard drive is small (less than 30 GB), inquire from Dell what a larger (80 GB) drive would cost.\015\012\015\012Find out from a supplier what the Windows XP upgrade would cost (my guess: $100)\015\012\015\012Add in several hours of your time to do the upgrade.\015\012\015\012Total it all and compare what the cost would be for a new laptop (unfortunately these days you'll get Vista). You may come out ahead to purchase a new system. Good luck.
