  1. Upgrade Old Slow Windows 7 Laptop?


    I currently use a windows 10 pro dell xps 15 9550 laptop. This is my main laptop. I just did a windows 7 to windows 10 update on an old dell desktop that i have not used in a long time. Its just sitting there so i figure i update it anyways if i use it in the future.


    A family member has an old laptop that they rarely use or use sometimes. Its also a dell laptop, its one of those dell inspiron from a long time ago. It is not only slow... but charger doesn't even charge it well... battery is bad... its extremely slow and that is putting it lightly...


    Should i upgrade that laptop from windows 7 to windows 10? They do have important files there and thus i don't want to ask them to back up it up as it would take them some time. But then i read if you don't update it soon to windows 10, you cannot do this anymore. But they do seem to use the laptop a few times like say print or put some pictures there etc. Now i read if you don't update to windows 10, you can no longer do that. So would you suggest i do that to that laptop? I will say that laptop is not only slow... but it might even have viruses etc. They no longer use that laptop and use a mac. But that laptop they do put things there etc.


    Has anyone did this windows 7 to windows 10 upgrade and then it wiped everything out? I read always do backup of files there in case.


    The thing is when i did the windows 7 to windows 10 upgrade on my old dell desktop, i wanted nothing installed and did that. But for this laptop, well they still use it a few times. But if they don't update it before the date, would that mean their windows 7 laptop computer would be useless since no more updates?

    :)

  4. Upgrade Old Slow Windows 7 Laptop?

    Can't upgrade laptop to Windows 10


    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I tried Windows Defender and discovered it was not turned on and when I tried to turn it on it would quickly turn itself off again. I used another anti-virus program to check out the laptop but it found no problem. Obviously this laptop has some problems.

    My next step is to put the original drive back into the machine and try the Windows 10 upgrade from that and if that also fails do a restore of this laptop to the original Windows 7.
