Windows 7: Windows 10 Upgrade Compatibility

Windows 10 Upgrade Compatibility

Hi, I checked the upgrade compatibility on my sister's laptop for Windows 10. It said I needed to upgrade the Windows Live Display Driver or we would experience problems with the display.

Can someone point me to the right path to get the right display driver for her computer?

I don't want any arguing about this, like what went on in the other thread.

And the make/model of her laptop is?

Hi JJ,
It's all good
The best way to find drivers is with the snid # on the machine and go to the Acer website
Where that number is varies on laptops but is usually a white tag near the activation key sticker
It will also have the serial # too
Cheers.

Thrash zone, the only one there is dated from 2011. It's the VGA driver, I am assuming.

Hi,
To tell the truth I've never heard of a Windows Live Display Driver
Display points to the chip set and or if the laptop has a graphic's card installed in it,

You might need to run the forums system spec's utility on the machine and have it upload to your profile temporarily so we might see what it lists :/
Or have her make a account here and have it available separately from your machine ?

I will upload a system spec's utility. She won't make one.

(1) Intel(R) HD Graphics Family (2) Windows Live Display Driver

It says Windows Live Display Driver, is all it says.
