Hello are you live

Hello. My name is Ramees.
Welcome to JustAnswer.com. I look forward to assisting you.

I’m sorry that it took so long for you to get a replay.

I know it can be confusing when it comes to computers. But don't worry I'll try my level best to help you.

Please correct me if I am wrong. You want to know that if you can upgrade your laptop to Windows 10. Am I correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Your laptop definitely meets the minimum requirements to upgrade to Windows 10.

But in my experience, you need a laptop with at least 4Gb RAM to run Windows 10 smoothly.

And I have looked into your laptop specs and it only supports a memory up to 2 GB.

Just online please. No need to pay extra.

Sure.

Your laptop definitely meets the minimum requirements to upgrade to Windows 10.

But in my experience, you need a laptop with at least 4Gb RAM to run Windows 10 smoothly.

And I have looked into your laptop specs and it only supports a memory up to 2 GB.

So if you upgrade to Windows 10, you will have trouble opening the Apps and you will experience slow turning on time also.

Just online please

Ok. I will not connect you remotely.

Please see the answer I sent above.

Please feel free to ask if you have any doubts.

You need at least 4 GB to run Windows 10 smoothly.

I have looked into your laptop specs and it only supports a memory up to 2 GB.

So it's better to stick with Windows 7.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news,

even when the answer is not favorable to the customer.

Even the replacement will come with the same specs.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What is your recommendation. Use as it is or dump it.

I have looked into every possibility, and I am sorry to say that your laptop is not built for Windows 10.

To get the most out of your laptop, it's better to stick with Windows 7.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But I increase ram from one gig to 2 or four gig. And can find from ebay sim or Simms.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What about the Ram to max.

You can only increase the RAM up to 2 GB.

And with the processor you have, you need at least 4 GB.

So RAM upgrade won't help.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
you are saying this cannot be upgraded at all.

I am afraid so.

Your laptop is obsolete at this point.

It is not made for Windows 10, Windows 8 or any UEFI enabled operating systems.

You can definitely install Windows 10 but it will be dead slow.

I just don't want you to pay for Windows 10 that won't work properly in your laptop.
