Can I update my Vista laptop with 10?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your laptop?

Dell / Vista

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Dell? Have you installed any updates recently?

No. It is a laptop we bought a few years ago that my wife never used and I am trying to get some use out of it instead of using a sledgehammer on it!

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't know the question to ask.

You can't upgrade from vista to 10, you could only upgrade to 7.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
