Specs: windows 7, 2.33 ghz / 2gb ram
I have this laptop, dell latitude D620, using it from my old days when windows 7 had arrived. The thing is that i am not sure whether windows 10 will work fine on my fore mentioned laptop. And even if it is, what should i expect to loss? as in some files stored on windows partition or the entire HDD will be effected. I guess micrsoft was'nt very clear about the risks they mentioned.

highly appreciated for your answer... :)

If you are talking about the free upgrade you shouldn't lose any of your own stuff.

Whether the hardware is adequate is a different matter. Some more RAM would be worthwhile.

What is the HD size and its free space?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Does Get Windows 10 app appear in the system tray? If so follow the 3 steps compatibility check outlined in this article to be sure windows 10 will work fine on your laptop (By the way a 5 years old computer is not that old - Windows 7 has been around since 2009)

I'm surprised you got Windows 7 to run very well on a D620 with only 2 Gig of ram. D620s are older laptops and came with 200, (edit: that should be 2000) Vista, or XP preinstalled.

You may be able to get Windows 10 installed, but you may not find all the necessary drivers. At the very least, if you can get it to run, I'd recommend upgrading the RAM to 4 Gig, which is all that board will support.

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

How is it these old posts are showing up in my unanswered questions list? That's Rhetorical, btw. :)

I guess I should learn to check the dates of the original post. Thanks, D.
