I have a Gateway T6836 laptop and I'm going to be upgrading soon to a new one and wanted to give this one to my 13 year old son, but what I would like t do is upgrade from vista to 7 (screen res won't allow for windows 8), wipe the hard drive and memory to make it like new again with as much of the GB space as possible. I also wanted to transfer his bought and paid for version of Minecraft. I don't know much about laptops and have no idea where to start or how to do it myself and I'm not about to start doing things without help :-)
All the help I can get on this subject would be most helpful... please keep in mind that I'm a novice so I don't understand computer lingo beyond the basics so spell things out like I'm 5 lol.
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Hard drive: 232 GB
Windows Vista Premium 64 bit
Intel Core Duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz
Thank you all so much in advance for the help
