Otherwise, invest in an upgrade of Windows platform.
Windows 7 Home Premium Edition - Upgrade package.
You will still, have to upgrade the graphics/video and sound chipsets' drivers though. Up to 2010's level of quality.
Read you later on. Please report back after the specifications of your Laptop are fully known.
Recently I upgraded a number of drivers, which I've done on previous occasions with no problems at all. However, on this occasion after rebooting system, I discovered a number of basic functions no longer work.
1. Mouse right click to access options on anything on desktop.
2. Scan Disk used to be an option I accessed from right click on C drive Properties, but unable now, and when searching for it as an exe file on system, it seems to have vanished!
3. When trying to access Properties option on files via File, then Properties in Explorer, nothing happens! Had tried this, as right click on the file is no longer working.
I have rolled back a couple of graphics drivers, with no change to above.
Any advice on these issues appreciated . . . asides from system restore, which I'd prefer to avoid if possible.
