Squeaky Stair

I live in a double storey house with carpeted floors and stairs. The last year my top stair makes an awful squeak and is getting louder and sagging. As it is carpeted I cant see what is wrong with it. Can someone let me know what they think might be wrong with the stair and how big a job is it to repair as I am worried about the carpet having to be lifted. Thanks

From laminated to carpet

I currently have thin laminated flooring. My neighbour underneath me says she can hear my every footstep. House is also freezing so for added warmth and sound barrier I would like to carpet my home. Can carpet be laid directly on top of the existing flooring? What is involved in this kind of job? It would be to carpet 3 rooms and a hallway.
