Windows 7: Windows 7 transition to Windows 10 problem

Windows 7 transition to Windows 10 problem

Hi, I am currently running Windows 7. I would like to transition to Windows 10. When I try to install 10 I get an error message that says I don't have enough RAM. I do have enough RAM, no question of this. Apparently, Windows and my PC's motherboard don't communicate too well. My local computer shop said maybe I have to get a new motherboard--no updates out there, I guess, for the old board. This seems like an unnecessary expense. Any ideas for a work around? Thank you.

Screen dim transition
Anyone know of a way to get the screen dimming function to have a transition between brightness levels, instead of an abrupt change from normal brightness to dimmed state? When the screen turns off, it fades to black, but not in the case of transitioning to the dimmed state. Thanks, - Eli
