You likely need to install the correct drivers for the wireless. They may be on HP's website.

There are MANY specific models in the Presario 2200 Notebook series.

Go here:
Scroll down a bit.
Look for the similar label on the outside of your computer.
Quote the specific model number - that's at the end of the first line.
Quote the Product number - that's on the third line.

The wireless network card plugs into a slot on the mboard. There may be more than one possible wireless network card model, depending on which specific 2200 series model you have.

If you have the computer close enough to a router to be able to plug in a network cable into the router, it's far easier to use a connection to your wired network port to connect to the internet, and XP MAY already have installed drivers for that.

"Windows 7 system requirements If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:

•1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

•1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

•16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

•DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver "

etc., etc.

The specific Presario 2200 series models I've looked at at so far can have no more than 1 gb of ram installed in them. Two 512 mb modules.

If that's the same as for your specific model, you can install just enough ram for the Windows 7 32 bit minimum ram requirents.

Windows 7 will probably run relatively SLOWLY on the Presario 2200 Notebook series computers.
