Windows 10: Windows 10 upgrade
Windows 10 upgrade
I have a laptop that was upgraded from Windows 7 to windows 10 (Free). I checked the drivers afterwards and noticed they were the Windows 7 drivers. The funny thing is the laptop is functioning with no problems. My question is should I get the Windows 10 drivers from the manufacturers, remove the 7 drivers and install the 10 drivers? This makes sense to me but I am new to this 10 thing. Thought someone may have already been down this road.
Retired from the grind
If it is working fine, then there is nothing to worry about. Windows 10 will only upgrade the drivers if it needs to. Otherwise it keeps the original drivers that were previously installed before the upgrade.
I wouldn't worry about it as long as everything is working. You might end up seeing that the maker of the Notebook/Laptop doesn't have actual Win10-compatible drivers for it yet. Or in other words, if it ain't broke don't fix it.
Thanks for the replies. I was thinking the same thing, if its working fine leave it alone. The manufacture does have 10 drivers but since its working I will leave well enough alone. Again thanks for the quick response.
Retired from the grind
The issue is that the mfg drivers are just tested and marked that they work with Windows 10. They are still the same driver that is installed. Leave alone and let it work as is.
I feel that we as experts on this forum should try and persuade any novices who are not sure about upgrading to Windows 10 should help explain why its good for them to upgrade from earlier versions.
So I'll start off:

I have some Win 7 upgrade dvds from Microsoft, previously used on pc's that have now been upgraded to Win 10.
Q: Can I use a Win 7 upgrade on an old Win XP unit ? Will it be refused as an already used key ?
What I am aiming to accomplish is...
Had Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit OEM-SLP on HP laptop and got the Get Windows 10 icon a few weeks ago. Reserved copy but as it didnt download i went to Microsoft and downloaded the Media Creation tool to upgrade that way. After install all worked...

Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
