To see if your PC is ready for Windows 7, download the complimentary
Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor*. It scans your PC for known
compatibility problems with your hardware, devices, and installed programs, and gives you a report you can print and save that recommends what to do before you upgrade.
* Internet access required and download charges may apply as set by your internet service provider.
If your PC can run Windows Vista, it can probably run Windows 7, but it's still a good idea to download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor before you begin the upgrade process.
Note: Information about your PC will be sent to Microsoft, but no information will be used to identify or contact you. For more information, read the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor privacy statement.
Before scanning your PC with the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, be sure to plug in and turn on any USB devices or other devices, such as printers, external hard disks, and scanners, that you regularly use with the PC you're checking.
