    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) to the desktop.

    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.

    Information about your computer will appear.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE text here.

    Maybe the one you have--Ultimate (that is likely pirated). I had an old (bought 2002) Dell laptop with those specs (but smaller hard drive) and it ran better with a (genuine) Windows 7 Home Premium that with Windows XP Home or Pro.

    If the guy did not include the XP media in the sale or gift then the way to install XP is to find somebody willing to sell a Retail (not OEM, not OEM System Builder's) copy. (Good luck with that!)

    And also--don't know why this slipped my mind last night--if you can still read the XP version and Product Key on the COA sticker you could borrow the correct XP installation CD from somebody and insert your Product Key when prompted.

    I'm guessing you have a Fujitsu LifeBook T4220 12.1" laptop.
