presario CQ5600Y upgrade to windows 10

HP Recommended
presario CQ5600Y
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

When I tried to upgrade from windows 7 to windows 10 I received the message that the computer display is not compatible with windows 10. How do I upgrade the display meeting windows 10 requirements? It is generally stated that one can upgrade from window 7 to windows 10.

Thank you.    K. Vogler

Hello kervog ;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

I read your post about upgrading to Win10 and wanted to help.

Unfortunately, that statement about anyone being able to upgrade to Win10 is a false generalization.  Win10, like any other Windows OS, has minimum hardware requirements.  In the early days of the Upgrade, the tool did a very poor job of checking machines for these requirements, with the result that lots of folks ended up with corrupted machines, often with blank or black displays!  Since then, MS has updated their Upgrade tool, and the more recent version presents messages like you have seen.

 

My guess is that the message you're seeing is the following:  The display manufacturer hasn't made your display compatible with windows 10. Check with the manufacturer for support. That's because, according to the HP Product specs page for your PC, you're using an Nvidia GeForce 6150SE video chipset.  

 

If you chose to use the MD Media Creation  Tool (MCT) to create Win10 install media, and installed using that, it would (most likely) bypass the hardware check, but then, you would be relegated to using the MS Basic Display Adapter and 1024x768 resolution.

 

I've found an interesting thread dealing with this problems and workarounds here:  https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/860353/geforce6150se-nforce430-windows-10-display-driver/

 

You should read through this and think about what you want to do further regarding a Win10 upgrade.

 

Good Luck
