System upgrade

Please is it possible and how do I go about it: I want to upgrade my system currently operating on window 7 starter to window 10.

My system configurations/properties are:

Model: HP 635 Notebook PC

Processor: AMD E-350 processor 1.60 GHz

RAM: 2.00 GB (1.60 GB usable)

System type: 32-bit Operating System

What are the likely challenges involved and how best can I achieve this?

We had such a laptop at the office. It eventually was given

It was such a dog that we eventually gave it away to a needy student. We tried increasing the ram it the 4GB max which we did load a 64 bit OS but after all that, the speed didn't increase at all. So we put in the old HDD and moved it back to its stock 2GB then did a factory restore to wipe it pretty clean.

Let's be honest here. It's a dog of a machine that any upgrade can cost more than a faster laptop. Even those 200 buck dual core celerons blew the keyboard caps off this laptop.

So it's not advisable?

Do you mean it's better for me to keep operating it on window 7 and go for a new laptop of window 10 if I have to use a higher window?

YOUR CHOICE.

While we did pop in double the ram and a 64 bit OS to use all the ram plus a faster HDD, the boot time, and overall speed didn't budge. But hey, you can try it and see. Here I've shared what we saw and even Linux didn't help much. It was that slow of a machine.

Now with more time my advice for the AMD APUs is nothing less than an A8. And for run of the mill browsing and school work the dual core celeron isn't too bad. My wife travels with a 4GB RAM dual core celeron xa200c laptop that I swapped in a 240GB SSD. It's very usable.
