This question may have already be asked before please help.  Is it possible to upgrade my laptop so it will handle windows 11.

 

Many thanks,

Hi, Dave:

 

Your notebook's processor does not meet the requirements to run W11, nor does it have a TPM 2.0 device.

 

There would be no way to upgrade your notebook to meet the Intel 8th generation core processor and TPM 2.0 requirements.

 

This does not necessarily mean you can't install W11 on your PC, but you would have to perform a clean install and reinstall all of your programs and files.

 

If you want to see if W11 works on your PC, you can make a bootable W11 USB installer from the link below.

See this article.  3rd headline from the bottom.

If for some reason, W11 does not work correctly on your PC, you can reinstall W10.

 

I currently have W11 clean installed on two PC's that I have, that do not meet the requirements for the W11 upgrade and they both work fine on W11 so far.
