Operating system

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have Windows 7 on my computer since there will no longer be updated or whatever after first of the year, I was wondering if I have to buy a new computer or can I somehow update my current computer with Windows 10 or whatever will be replacing  Windows 7... as you can probably tell I am NOT completely computer literate.

Thank you for any information and help you can give me!

Hi:

 

Looking at the general specs for your PC, it meets the basic requirements to run W10 (processor, graphics, memory).

 

I wouldn't pay the $139.00 to upgrade to W10 in case some devices didn't work, but you may be able to still get the free upgrade.

 

See this link below...

If you want to try to get the free upgrade, click on the blue Update Now button at the link below.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

If things don't work to your expectations after upgrading to W10, you have 30 days to go back to W7 as long as you don't delete any files.

 

Here's how to do that if you need to...
