    Windows 7 transition to Windows 10 problem


    Hi. I am trying to install Win. 10 (running 7 now). When I do, I get an error message that says I don't have enough RAM. I do have enough RAM, no question about this. My local computer store says Windows isn't communicating too well with my PC's motherboard, and that there are no updates for this motherboard available. Apparently, it's a miscommunication problem between Win. on the PC's hard drive, Win. on the web, and the motherboard. The computer store said I could install a new motherboard, but this seems like an unnecessary expense. Would any forum members have any work around ideas? I doubt that Win. will come up with any solution, and my computer store thinks that as well. Thanks for your feed back.
