Is there a way to uninstall Vista and go back to XP on a laptop that came with a new vista install?

Are you saying that your laptop came with Vista pre-installed, or did you get it with XP and free express upgrade to Vista?

If the answer is the former, then no, you cannot. You would need to purchase a copy of XP (probably only available now online or Ebay, re-format your drive and install XP cleanly.

For the free express upgrade, I'm not 100% sure of the answer. You may want to call Tech Support of your computer manufacturer.

Hope this helps? :huh:

I have XP on cd, its my registered copy. I would like to go back to XP for a while until all the Vista bugs are worked out. When I put the xp cd in the laptop and booted from the cd rom drive, it looked like it would do a new install, then I got a nasty blue screen crash.
