    Upgrade to Windows 10. Any Problems?


    If I upgrade to Windows 10 from 8.1 Pro for HP, are people facing problems after upgrade like Drivers or Software problems or other stuff? Share your Experience.

    Some do some don't, your best chance is to log on to HP tech support for your computer, there you will be notified which drivers will need to upgraded before upgrading an which ones after the upgrade. That will give you the best chance for a successful upgrade.

    To see what issues you might be present with the Window 10 Forum will be quite helpful

    If your PC is 100% Windows 8.1 compatible it shouldn't be a problem. If not, dig deep before upgrading.
    I just upgraded (last week) my daughter's Win 8.1 HP laptop and no problems at all.

    HP only provides information on PCs they built in 2013 or later. Anything older than that is not covered and, they are not providing updated drivers for those older PCs as well,

    None whatsoever on a Dell Inspiron 537s with a Intel Core 2 Duo. Runs like a champ.

    I got a new HP Slimline 450-a24 and upgrading to Windows 10 is awful. I turn off Microsoft Edge only IE 11. I can see Verizon home page but not my email page. I enable compatibility viewer setting and check my email but, the home page is readable. If I'm lucky I get "Oops the page you're look for isn't here". The Edge give a blank page, IE 11 give a Verizon header, log-in button, etc.,, etc. I am staying with Windows 8.1. Windows 10 drivers at HP support in August are different in September.

    Redscarlett use Firefox or Chrome. If compatibility in IE is not fixing the issue, that is because of issues that are outstanding. When you do an upgrade from within Windows 8.1. You need to tell it to not keep previous apps and settings.

    I had no trouble on my Toshiba laptop apart from 2 drivers that needed up dating which I did with Auslogic Driver Updater I believe they do a free version.

    Thanks for the idea broe23 but, I've did personal files only too. Same results. Change to Firefox will be a last resort. I'm thinking that its Verizon doing. Have you heard that they sold to Fonterra Communication, how many changes to there web site to be, is unknown. I got only one card left, clean install and the August HP drivers. Which aren't available.
