  1. CPU's don't store programs...If you mean your hard drive then simple. Take your XP hard drive and connect it to your windows 7 computer/motherboard and transfer the data over.
  2. Thank you. I am a lady and don't know much about the process. What would be the procedure to accomplish this. Want to buy a new tower, but have a lot of stuff on 7 year old tower! Thanks again!!
  3. That's good checked it out. How about programs?
  4. Programs will have to be reinstalled.

    You might want to download and run the windows-7 upgrade advisor.
