I have upgraded my laptop with Windows 7 - Dell XPS M1210. Internet access via modem
It appears to be working ok. Slow to start, so I use 'sleep' to curb my impatientness.
I have had vista, MS word etc on my computer. Are these software programs wiped from computer when I upgrade? My avaiailbe memory space is approx 20 gig from approx 55gig. I am currently using a trial version of MS office as i can't find previous software on computer, and store very little data, photos etc on my system.
So basically I would like help to work out if I have unnecessary hardware or software on my laptop, the best setup for my usage which involves Office programs - word, spreadsheets, powerpoint, access to internet - servers.Music, photos, videos etcI
I hope this makes sense.........I can drive laptops/ computers etc but am not familiar with mechanics....and my resident neighbourhood geek has left the area.
