I'm looking how to upgrade my hp Hp Entertainment PC Hp Pavilion dv8700 from Vista to windows 7 or 8.(all this just because Microsoft Corporation stops supporting XP and Vista)
I need to know if my laptop is abkle to manage windows 7 or 8 ...would be better if 8 will run easy wthout giving me hard times, freezings and other problems.
And the best of all..., if there is a FREE downloading and installation link for windows 7 or 8.
Awaiting for a fast and effective rersponse I remain,

There are ten different models of the Pavilion 8700 -- we need to know which is yours.
There will be a sticker on it, probably on the bottom or in the batter compartment, that looks like one of these below:
Once we have the product number, I can check for HP Win7 drivers for it.
We can proceed when you provide the information.
