    I would really doubt it since your system was originally delivered with Win XP. Since its so old I'm sure Toshiba will not provide W10 drivers for things like the "Touch pad", "USB Ports" etc.
    Hi there
    actually as an interesting exercise you could install W10 (32 bit) on a VM with that machine - use VBOX or an old version of vmware player (32 bit version).

    XP itself doesn't use a lot of RAM so you could allocate 1GB RAM to your Windows 10 Virtual machine.

    Performance won't be stellar but it would give you a taste to see if you like W10.

    Cheers
