My grandfather left us an old laptop. Its a hp pavilion ez5200 and it has windows xp. How can I wipe it clean and put on Windows Vista and how do I connect it to the internet two ways: one wirelessly, and by connecting it to another laptop using an ethernet cord?

hiya,1st you should run the upgrade advisor to see if it will run vista,2nd why would you want to connect via ethernet to another laptop?

i wanted to run internet that way because I was trying to figure out how to get internet on the old laptop without buying a usb internet adapter.

Also check to see if theres even vista drivers for it if not then xp will possibly be your only option.
