Preferred Solution: Can I use the free windows 10 upgrade on a R400 pc...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey I have a Thinkpad R400 7443cto with a Intel P8600 in it and I was wondering what upgrade routes I have for this guy. I'd prefer to jump into a quad core if possible.  Would something like the Q9100 work?

I have a Dell XPS R400 with a Pentium II, 400 MHz processor running Windows 2000. (It originally had Windows 98). I currently have one socket filled with 128 MB of SDRAM (PC100, unbuffered, CL=2) . I would like to upgrade and add more memory.

Information from Dell says the computer supports 100 Mhz SDRAM 168 pin DIMM with a maximum size of 128 MB up to a total of 384 MB (3 sockets).

The motherboard is an Intel SE440BX-2. The documentation for it says it supports up to a 256 MB DIMM SDRAM for a total of 768 MB.

Why the discrepancy? Is it based on the OS? And how high can I go?
 

A:Memory Upgrade - Dell XPS R400 with Intel SE440BX-2 motherboard

The old W98 did not function properly with 256MB or over.
W2000 does not need more than 512MB, but works fine with up to 1GB.




Intel said:



System Memory Combinations
The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.Click to expand...

I would believe Intel rather than Dell.
Make sure you get PC100/CL2 SDRam, anything else does not work.
You can mix different MB-sizes memory-chips. So buy what you can afford.
Unless you do intensive graphics, even just 1 256MB-stick will do wonders.

Title basically says it all. I used to be using Windows 8.1, and I upgraded for free. After using windows 10 for a week i got a blue screen that said "bad_system_config_info" and restarting does not fix it. It is stuck on the blue screen after restarting. So, i was thinking I could use the option on the blue screen that it gives me to downgrade to previous version, but I would still like to use windows 10. So, if I downgrade, could I then upgrade again for free? (I am still within my 30 days to downgrade) Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you have any other solution to this blue screen that would allow me to stay on windows 10 and keep all of my files and apps, that would be even better. Thank you!

The initial error that came up while I was using my PC like normal:

Options ("Continue" and "turn off PC" just take me back to this)


Options Under "troubleshoot" option that was shown above. (I've tried a system restore, but it does not work. I have no "system image recovery", so doesn't work. Start up repair doesn't work. So, "go back to previous build" is my last resort, which is the reason for my question in the first place. I would like to downgrade then upgrade back to windows 10, but not sure if i can.

 

A:Can you upgrade for free to windows 10, downgrade back to windows 8.1, and then upgrade again?

Yes, I believe you can. Windows 10 is free for at least the first year from release.
You can still get the Windows 10 ISO downloade and be able to upgrade using that instead of the downloaded installation files too.

I would like to upgrade one of my computers to Windows 10 - it will be either my 17' HP laptop which is currently running Windows 8.1 or my HP 15" laptop currently running Windows 7.

I have received popups from Microsoft that both of these machines are fully compatible with Windows 10. I do not run a printer or any external devices from these machines and never use the DVD/CD drives either so I shouldn't have driver issues for those things.

My question is: if I do upgrade one of them and decide I don't want to keep it, is it possible to return to the previous operating system and would that be a gigantic headache to do so? BTW, I have the product keys for both machines.
 

A:Free Windows 10 upgrade?

you should be able to create recovery media from the existing PCs - so you can go back
I would do that first -
Windows 7 - will create DVDs - upto 6 or USB drive
Windows 8/8.1 - 16gb or 32GB usb drive will be needed on some HP PCs i have needed 18GB
Also HP reported issues using sandisk make

An upgrade will allow you to go back to the previous version within 30days - But some people have had issues going back

The media creation tool is a good way to do the upgrade, but make sure you upgrade and not a clean install
https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

Although this new release is supposed to allow you to enter a old key from W7/8/8.1 and install, BUT its only been released a few days

Data - make sure you also have a FULL data backup

My dad wants to upgrade to windows 10 at the end of the free trial, but I don't.
1. Compatability - All of my favourite programes and games are older, often older than MS Vista. I am aware that "upgrading" keeps compatability back to windows 95, but I'll be getting a new computer in July.
2. Looks, I think windows 10 looks ugly and stupid.
3. Performance, my computer is not exactly th titan supercomputer. (GPU sucks especially)
4. Windows 10 spies. (He says 7 does, but I think it's minimal if at all)

He says Windows 10 has built in antivirus stuff, but I'm not sure. Even if it does, I think Windows 7 might. (I don't think it does though) and bitdefender has been inactive for months. (Disabled)

A. Persuade me Windows 10 is great
B. Give me good enough reasaons to dissuade my dad from Windows 10.

The version of Windows 8.1 I am currently running is an off-the-shelf full retail version. (To be clear, I built this system, myself, and the OS did not come preinstalled on a new system.) Let's say at some point a few months from now, I want to reinstall everything from scratch. Is there a way to preserve the free upgrade files so that after reinstalling my Windows 8.1, that I can then reinstall the free upgrade again?

Once you upgrade to Windows 10 then you will be able to reinstall or Reset Windows 10 at anytime unless you make some major hardware changes which requires some additional steps. I am not sure why you would want to go back to Win 8.1, but you can do that as well.

It seems that Windows 10 is going to be free to upgrade existing Vista and Windows 7 users. That is fine but I have also been told that once I do this (if I decide to), my legal copy of Windows 7 key will be 'killed' and if I wanted to reinstall or restore my Windows 7 - in my case - with Acronis, I couldn't because the key would now be invalid for Windows 7.

I purchased a refurbished Dell OptiPlex 980 minitower which originally came with Windows 7 Pro and which still had its original C-O-A sticker on it.
I purchased it without a Windows operating system to save money and because I plan to use it only for testing purposes.
I decided to do a clean install of Windows 10 Pro in it to see if it would activate with the Windows 7 product key.
I've never installed and tried to activate Windows 10 Pro in this manner, so this was new territory for me.
To my surprise, the install process went fine and the product key was accepted and a digital activation was displayed.

Windows 10 was first released in July 2015.
Microsoft announced an upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 would be free until July 2016.
More than 3 years has passed since the free upgrade period was suppose to expire.
It's pretty obvious though that Windows 10 can still be upgraded for free.

So I just picked up a Laptop (HP Compaq Presario) and turns out I'm eligible for a Windows 7 Free Upgrade Program. Awesome. I have a couple of questions:

1. First of all, is it like a CD that arrives?

2. Is it only a 1 time use CD, or is it like an official Windows 7 Disc?

3. Do I need to pay anything? I've already placed my order (Still have to upload Proof of Purchase), but the subtotal was $0.00, and they didn't ask for my credit card. I shouldn't have a bill of $50 when the item arrives..

4. Will it work on my other laptop (Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005)?

Thank you very much!

A:Windows 7 Free Upgrade Program?

I'm not entirely sure, I just went back from Windows 7 (Build 7100) and It's an Amazing OS I believe that they will give you a direct download link and will have you varify you key and you will use their Upgrade service.

I am using the EOM P50's Windows 10 Pro OS, and I know that normally it's not free to upgrade to another version of Windows OS. Since the P-series is a premium Workstation by Lenovo, I wonder if there is some free or cheaper way to upgrade to the recent Windows 10 Pro for Workstation version?  Thanks!
