Your NEW laptop was setup for Win 7. You could possibly revert back to XP if the drivers are available for that model. You would have to check the manufacturer's website to see what drivers are available for your model. You should give Win 7 a chance. It's a better system and some applications can be run in compatibility mode. No need to go backwards.

I agree with Grasshopper. I run windows 7 pro and run all my xp programs in comatibility mode and they work fine.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
