    How does the Acer Aspire 6920 cope with a Windows 10 upgrade?


    I am currently running Windows 7 and would like to upgrade to Windows 10. Will my Acer Aspire be able to cope with it? I have a one terabit internal hard drive and an external terabit hard drive.

    It should run like a champ, to have the decent speed use SSD drive, I have the Sony Vaio very similar spec runs good with SSD, try to update your Ram to the maximum allowed.

    Dear Ramram55, Thank you for getting back to me so soon. I'm delighted to hear that I can upgrade with what I've got. The thing is where is my SSD drive and what does SSD stand for? Regarding updating my random access memory, doesn't an internal hard drive of 1 terabit resolve this? The technie who serviced my Aspire 6920 last summer said it would increase the memory. Apologies if my questions and comments seem bleeding obvious but that's why I'm a shy technie.

    Here is an explanation of SSD, it is usually an internal drive, it should give more life to your pc, depends on your
    usage, maybe your current traditional drive is large. Check your memory by control panel > system and security > view amount of Ram and processor speed. See if you can maximize the ram from ram maker such as crucial.

    It depends how much upgrade you need and budget to put speed in your machine. My guess is your ram is 4GB should be enough to run windows 10. I really emphasize on the SSD drive. My opinion is if I can hang on with my pc for another 2-3 years I would be happy. That is just me.

    Dear Ramram55,
    Thank you for all the guidance above. I'm going to go off and check my Control Panel as well as read the cited article. If I have any more questions, I'll revert back to you.
    Yours gratefully,

    adding the 1TB harddrive would increase storage memory not you random access memory ,and the SSd drive suggested would have to be purchased by you ,and they are still a bit expensive for the large capacity ones
