Can I upgrade my OS to windows 10 for Acer Inspire 4740g?

ramlarsramlars Posts: 1Member

Not sure is this belongs to aspire desktops but I can't see any other board.

 

I have an Acer Aspire 4740g, I know it's old but it is still in great shape (ty acer!) and I saw in the windows updates that I can upgrade to windows 10 for free. I'm just wondering if my laptop can handle it?

 

It has 2gb ram, Intel M330, Geforce 310m

 

I have just recently reinstalled the OEM OS windows 7 starter SP1 and made a back up recently.

 

Has anyone tried upgrading theirs to windows 10?

    Hi ramlars

     

    If you've installed update KB3035583 (Get Windows 10), you will have a white Windows logo icon in your system tray (near the clock in your taskbar). Right click & select "Check your upgrade status". This should inform you whether you can upgrade.

     

    If KB3035583 isn't installed (and you've not hidden the update), try manually searching for WIndows updates.

     

    Failing that click the link shown on this page (x86, as you have Win 7 Starter):

    If all else fails, your laptop may not be compatible with Windows 10.
