You are currently having the Lenovo ThinkPad R51 1836 laptop which has the Windows XP operating system but now you want to upgrade the operating system of this laptop to the Windows 7 operating system. I think you should not upgrade the operating system of this laptop to windows 7 because you will have to face the lot of problems in upgrading the operating system of this laptop to windows 7. Because there is very less chance to get the drivers for Windows 7 operating system of the older laptops.

Before upgrading to the Windows 7 operating system i think first of all you should check that this laptop can be upgraded to the Windows 7 operating system or not. For this purpose the Microsoft is providing the software which will determine that you can upgrade or not to Windows 7 operating system. The software name is Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. You can download this software from the website of the Microsoft free of cost. Run this wizard and if the result is positive then you can install the Windows 7 OS in your laptop without any problem.

You want the drivers software of the Lenovo ThinkPad R51 1836 laptop for the windows XP operating system. As you are upgrading the operating system of this laptop to the Windows 7 operating system. you can get the Drivers software of this laptop only on the official website of the Lenovo. Go to the website of the Lenovo, search the windows 7 drivers for this laptop. Download and install them. But i think you will not get drivers for this laptop because this is little bit older laptop.
