    I moved into a new apartment and the previous owner left behind a Dell Inspiron 2650, running XP service pack 2 (it works pitifully). I have a Dell studio which runs Vista. With the packet of installation CD's that I recieved when I purchased my computer, would I be able to install Vista onto the 2650. I have become quite fond of vista, and as I said the 2650 which was left behind is just so poorly maintained. Suggestions?

    i would go to microsofts site and see what the licence allows on your disc if it did then you need to check the comp is suitable for the os again ms can scan and tell you or you could just clean up the comp and the one other thing is if the owner comes looking for it and you have done anything he may take legal action it is his/hers after all
