12/20/2019 If you have Win 7

Here are the options that Eddie Goldberg discussed, as well as some other generally useful tips:

If you want to upgrade your current computer or tablet to Win 10,

  • Use www.Cpubenchmark.net  to see if your machine has enough power–need min score of 1500 to run barely
  • Must have at least 4G of RAM available
  • Need to update BIOS, drivers, video driver, sound driver
  • Make sure to make a backup–Win 7 has a back up program
  • Consider installing a Solid State Drive (SSD)–Computers Direct will copy everything off your old drive and put it on the new drive, which will run incredibly faster
  • Can use a ‘classic shell’ to make Win 10 start menu look and work like Win7–from https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/classic_start.html

Other options:

  • Buy a new computer–Win 10, chromebook or tablet
  • Run Linux on your computer

Discussed cautions

  • If has malware, upgrade won’t go well; run malware programs first
  • If hardware goes bad, bad hard drive–may not install
