Laptop requirements for installing Windows® 7
What are the system requirements for installing Windows 7 on laptops?
Windows 7 is the most recent Operating System from Windows. This offers the user to do the work more simply. It offers many advanced features than the earlier versions of the Windows operating systems. To install Windows 7, the system has to satisfy some requirements. 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor is the main requirement. The processor speed is important to do the work without affecting the performance of the system. The memory capacity depends upon the bit version of the Operating System. 1GB Ram is necessary for the 32-bit version and 2GB is necessary for the 64-bit version. The hard disk capacity is 16GB. Some of the additional requirements for Windows 7 include the additional memory for the additional graphics, better compatibility of the graphics card with the Directex, TV tuner for the Windows Media Center, specific hardwares for the Windows Touch and Tablet PCs, and proper optical drive.
Following are some of the issues that might come while installing Windows 7 on laptops:
- Insufficient memory
- Error messages
The main issue that might come while installing Windows 7 is the insufficient memory in the system. The system in which the installation happens must contain 1 GB RAM capacity. If the system cannot provide that much memory while installing Windows 7, then the installation will be failed. So you need to check the memory capacity before installing Windows 7.
Incompatibility is another issue that might occur while installing Windows 7 to the system. The software and the hardware both would make issues while installing Windows 7. The applications in the system which are compatible with the Windows XP system may not be compatible with the Windows 7. You need to check the compatibility before installing Windows 7 to the Windows XP system.
While installing Windows 7 to the laptop, there is a chance of error messages. You need to give the product key of the Operating System. If the given product key is not correct, then you cannot continue the installation. If the installation CD is not correct or it gets damaged, then also you will get error messages and you could not continue the installation.
