OS Upgrade


My computer was purcahsed in 1998.

It had 98 system.

Now it has XP system.

It starts but then it shows blue screen for a second and then again goes into start mode.

Tried to removr RAM, recovery disk, but did not help.

Any ideas or thoughts?

Looking at your system specs, I see that you have a 486 processor This is far below the minimum specs required by Winodws XP You have two options: to continue to use Windows XP, you will need to purchase a new computer, otherwise, you will need to 'downgrade' to Windows 98 'Downgrading' in this instance will require a format and reinstall of the OS.
