I have a windows vista ultimate laptop.When I bought it it had Windows
xp on it.I upgraded it to windows vista then it started rebooting.So
when the computer shop people tried to put Windows xp the computer
didn't respond they said that it is beacause of the sata harddisk.After
somehow they put Windows xp.then my dad put windows vista again.Now it
works properly.but I want to put windows xp now should i do it?

Thanks

Why do you want to go back to Windows XP? If possible you would be better off going to Windows 7 as it is generally a better experience than Vista.

G'Day Logankalo,

Mainstream support for WinXP has finished.

Providing money isn't an issue, the best thing to do is buy copy of Win7.

Cheers,
Cam

I'd say no. Why do you want Windows XP? If you just want to use an old machine to browse the web and check email then I'd suggest trying a modern Linux distribution. If you plan to continue using the machine on a regular basis and still need Windows then I'd upgrade to Windows 7.
