Clarification Request
Did you receive the upgrade files and notification?

In reply to: Windows 7 OEM versions

If you used a downloaded upgrade file from another source, this may happen. The OEM or retail designation alone is not the issue. The upgrade process is supposed to include hardware qualification to see if your PC meets standards. What upgrade process did you use?

L645 is a series.
What's the rest of the model number?

Assuming your running w7 sp1 I would not upgrade that unless there is something in w10 that you really want.

Msft will support w7 for another 3 1/2 yrs.
If the machine last that long it will be time to buy a new one.

I've had great luck with OEM versions

In reply to: Windows 7 OEM versions

But I have been making a point of uninstalling Norton or similar along with CD/DVD drive emulators. If it fails I usually find something pretty banged up about the OS. Torrent users, Registry cleaners, etc.
