I tried using the Upgrade Advisor but it dosent work. Here are my Tech Specs:

My computer has 1 gb of ram
What's the 7-character service tag number of your Dell Dimension 2400 desktop so we can determine what hardware came in it and if Vista drivers are available and if it's a good candidate for an upgrade from XP to Vista?

Does it have an Intel Celeron or Intel Pentium 4 processor, and what speed is it?

Is it still using Intel integrated graphics, or have you upgraded to a video card?

You'll need to max it out with 2 GB of DDR PC2700 RAM.

The big $64,000.00 question: Why do you want to upgrade from XP to Vista?

According to the dell website for that model of computer only windows xp drivers are listed. So if you want vista or even windows 7 on that computer you are going to be out of luck. All you can do is purchase a good used or brand new computer that has what you want.

It's my guess that you'll need to upgrade to a Vista/7-supported video card, a Vista/7-supported sound card, and max out to 2 GB of RAM.

My advice is to stick with XP in it until you're ready to upgrade to a newer computer with Vista/7.

And if your intent is to upgrade from XP to Vista, you should bypass Vista and upgrade to 7.
