    Looks good.
    You are very welcome.

    Chkdsk displayed some cleaning and was unremarkable.

    There was one unexpected shutdown / reboot
    There were no BSOD.


    Code:
    Event[767]:
      Log Name: System
      Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
      Date: 2019-05-24T12:03:01.082
      Event ID: 41
      Task: N/A
      Level: Critical
      Opcode: Info
      Keyword: N/A
      User: S-1-5-18
      User Name: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
      Computer: DESKTOP-GBSTHPJ
      Description: 
    The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

    The unexpected shutdown / reboot I know why, it was my fault because the pc
    lost power unexpectedly, was on low battery and I had not switched on the power socket on the wall for the power pack.
    I have learned a lot.
    Thanks a million for your help.

    The reason for installing a 32bit OS is for the ACPI as shown below and because the Windows 8 Pro previously installed was a 32bit version too.
    ...
    If your device supports 64bit (I think it does), you may install a 64bit OS with no activation issue.
    Because your device has already been activated, there is no need of "GenuineTicket.xml" file.
    Just clean install Win10 Pro 64bit and it will be activated too.
    Only edition must be the same (Home, Pro etc).

    I will give it a try as there are no software installed other than Macrium and no data.

    Thanks

    Great!
    Review the owners manual to find the maximal usable RAM.
    Use the Crucial scanner to see its findings:
    Crucial System Scanner | Crucial.com
    Decide whether you want to modify the hardware.
    If you decide to increase RAM it's best to use modules that have identical SKU.

    Hi,
    You seem surprised ?
    Trick is to have a flawless upgrade not a clean install

    Clean installs are cumbersome to most having to start over....

    I updated three 2 were so-so with issues with basic supposed to be new updating options missing
    One was so bad coming from 1809 I didn't waste any time with it.

    Trick to have a flawless update is to have a flawless OS...not a supermarket of AVs and apps, as most of us use to have.

    I am surprised as this is a relatively old and almost obsolete laptop compared to the ones available today!
