    I was wondering if I have to get a xp version that is spacificaly for a lap top or will just any version work? I heard that it would not recognise the battery if I did put a "non laptop" version of windows on it. Thanks for the advise.

    what kind of issues are you talking about. Will it not run on the battery? I know some about desk tops but nothing about laptops. Thanks for the reply. I just want to be sure that it will run normaly before I make the change.

    That was why I posted the link to the Microsoft Knowledge base listing 74 articles concerning Windows XP and Laptops.

    Have a look.

    I know at least 2 people who have Windows XP running on laptops and have no problems with it.
