Can I upgrade my HP Pavilion HPE h8-1050 Desktop PC to Windows 10?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion HPE h8-1050 Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

HP is ending Windows 7 support and all that stuff. They're advising to upgrade your PCs to Win 10. This PC was released in 2011. And I don't think that I could upgrade it wothout any trouble, but I wasn't sure. Community, is it okay for me to update it? What do you think I should do?

Hi:

 

The only way you will be able to know is if you try it.

 

It meets the basic specs to run W10.

 

It is possible the wifi and audio won't work.  I can give you a driver to try for the audio if necessary.

 

I certainly would not buy W10 with no guarantee it will work, but you may still be able to get the upgrade for free.

 

See the info at the link below...

You would have 30 days to go back to W7 as long as you don't delete any files.

But what about the Wi-Fi? My whole work depends on it.

If for some reason the wifi doesn't work, you buy a cheap USB wifi adapter.

So, if I want to order a new Desktop PC. Will I have to buy a monitor(s) for it separately or will one come with it?

If you want to buy a new desktop PC like the one you have now, you should be able to use the existing monitor.

So, does HP ship it's products to "Pakistan"? Honestly, I don't know. I want to buy a specific PC with specific parts. Of course  after the pandemic. Hope you're safe 🙂

Since I don't work for or represent HP, I don't know how you buy a new HP PC in Pakistan.

 

So far so good...You stay safe and well too!
