my grandmother bought an hp pavilion dv4-1555dx with a trial version of windows 7 home 64 bit, her trial is up, and she wants to keep all of her music and videos and other media files, so i was wondering, what options would we have, before installing windows xp mce?

Copy them to another partition or better yet, to an external drive that can be disconnected before doing the install, or best do both. I've had friends who backed up their data to a second hard drive, then re-installed, and managed to erase both hard drives in the process.

Be sure you verify that the files copied correctly, and not just shortcuts to the originals.
