I have an HP G60-23OUS Laptop with Windows 7 Can I upgrade to Windows 8 or better? I need to upgrade to 8 or better to run Turbotax 2020.
The Windows 8 Minimum System Requirements are:
Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster.
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver.
The G60-23OUS meets everything else, but I am not sure about the graphics card.
Thanks in advance for your help. JC

Your PC meets all of the specs to run W8 - W10.
Here is what I recommend...
Here is a way you can still upgrade to W10 for free.
Read the info at the link below, and if you want to go through with the upgrade, click on the blue Update Now button on the link below this one.
You have 30 days to go back to W7 if you don't like W10.
If you need help finding drivers after the upgrade just let me know.

Sounds good, but the problem is that the windows 7 I have was installed in 2017 y a repairman who didn't register the Windows 7. He has since died. I don't think my Windows 7 is legal. So I will need to purchase the new operating system.
The hard drive on my My laptop with Windows 10 has crashed so I need to use the HP laptop. JC
