    I would say try upgrading and see how it goes, if you don't like it you have a short time to go back to windows 7
    I just upgraded then rolled back to win7, hated 10 and the fact it somehow lost my D: drive and couldn't find it again didn't help my state of mind regarding win10 (personally never saw what was broken and needed fixing on winXP)

      It is. They did last year with Windows XP, and they totally discontinued and unsupported it. If any zero day exploit appears for Windows XP systems, you will have to have a special SLA (maintenance agreement) so they will create something for you and specifically for you.

      That's a good way of controlling that everyone upgrades or moves to a newer version. Apple, Google and other software vendors (if not all of them) do that as part of their planned obsolescence and recurring revenue. In case of Windows XP, though, it has been supported and in the market for over 15 years, which is quite a long time for any operating system.

        I don't play with the computer so I cannot say in terms of video rendering.


        But for Windows 10 a high spec PC is also required, my old laptop is failed :(

              Press f8 repeatedly during start up
              You should see an option to log in as administrator. You can change it from there I think
              Alternatively try changing it in safe mode
              InshaAllah this will work
              It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

                I tried doing this but failed

                I'd prefer Windows 10

                  upgrade from windows 7 to windows 10

                  Windows 7 is superior.

                    Why did you fail? It can't be that hard. It not rocket science

                        I have windows 8.1, it seems so old fashioned, I think I got used to the 10 until everything had to be rebooted because this laptop has caused so many problems, it's only been on a year and a half I've had it

                        I don't know version 7

                          It just keeps coming up with an error and Blackbeard (UF member) told me to get the UK version but I just can't find that

                              Hmmm, you currently have windows 8.1, right? Do you remember what the error said? Maybe you chose the wrong version or something.

                              I dont know if the free upgrade thing is still available, so if you want to upgrade now, then maybe you have to pay for it

                              I upgraded my laptop from 8.1 to 10 whilst the free upgrade was available. I
                              disliked 8.1's metro interface and fullscreen apps, so it was an easy decision for me. The update came through windows update, so there was very few issues. Have you checked windows update to see if it's there? Have you received notifcations before telling you to reserve/upgrade to 10?

                                Yep, 8.1. It said it's the wrong code or something like that

                                My brother and BB told me I can get it free for laptops so I tried that but I have the wrong version (the US one) find me the UK one then it could work. I browsed on their website but I just can't find it anywhere including google.

                                My other bro told me I have to pay for it, I was like- yeh right, not for this laptop. Not worth it but I have to keep it for a some time to come :I

                                No messages for update but recently it had 'configured' some but that was a fail too so it automatically undone it

                                :wacko:
