I'm so out of the OS/software world these days...might as well pretend I'm not a computer guy. Had 2 hiccups already, working on my wife's computer, so I'm coming here before I make another screw up.
We are interested in upgrading my wife's laptop's hard drive to a nice, shiny, new SSD. There's a lot of mixed information out there (hence the 2 screw ups I've already made), so I'm going to avoid Google on this one. Please...help me from beginning to end...what do I need to consider before doing this?
- Windows key issues? (I have no idea how the new key system works...there's no sticker!)
- What partition software can copy everything over, no sweat?
- After installing SSD, what re-configuring do I need to do in Windows 8.1 for optimum performance?
Please walk me through this...
