q1]           what is minimum / best temperature should have for CPU, GPU, motherboard and HDD?

 

q2]           Is this temperature is enough to upgrade to Windows 7? Will it will create any problem after upgrading to Windows 7?

Hi

 

What you need to do is to run Microsoft's own Win 7 upgrade advisor to check whether your system is compatible with Windows 7. Here is the download link :

 

http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=20

 

If it certifies your system as 7 compatible, you don't need to worry about anything.

 

Edit :

 

I found you made a double post and the other includes the upgrade advisor report.

It seems that your system is compatible with Win 7. Manufacturer's are generally not bothered about updating drivers for old models. Either your System devices are supported by Win 7 stock drivers or they may be available via Windows update. Best way to make sure is to install a  30 day trial version of the Win 7 and check all devices are working properly.

I merged the upgrade report from your other topic into this one. Please do not start multiple topics about the same issue. It's best to keep it all in one place.

Hi

 

There is no specific temperature for a particular OS. High temperature is bad for any system regardless of the OS you are running (Vista , 7 , 8 or Linux). The temperature listings you posted is not high for a laptop. In fact Win 7 uses less CPU and memory resources than Vista and i don't expect a temperature increase when changing the OS.

 

Also i expect an improvement in boot time and overall performance than Vista. I highly recommends installing the trial version first and evaluate it for 30 days. If everything works OK, purchase a licence and activate it.
