    I have come across people claiming to be running Windows 10 on a Pentium 4. So, if true, that means you would have to go back a long way t find a processor that is truly incompatible, meaning Windows 10 would refuse to install.

    My sister's computer runs on a Pentium processor. Not sure if it's the 4 or what, but it is older as it came with Windows 7 64-bit and a Legacy BIOS. My system has the AMD E2 VISION processor that came with Windows 7 64-bit with a Legacy BIOS.

    I have a Dell Laptop running Windows 10 with a T2390 CPU. I think it was released in 2006-2009.

    OK.... so backed up all files to external HDD and have done a 'clean' install of win10... hoping this will solve some issues... and display driver is now not reporting errors... should have done that from the outset... but see how we go
