Greetings BC Community:
It’s been awhile since I’ve needed to post a question up here. My problem is XP Pro/32 regarding April 8 2014 forthcoming and whether my current Acer PC system can handle a Win Pro 7 /32/64 upgrade, or not. I’ll save everyone some time by stating that my current Acer can only max to 4 GB’s of RAM and no further.
Although it is about three years old and runs great as my business PC, I vaguely remember that the tech I bought it from later upgraded it with a special chip to appear as if I maxed to 4 GB’s of RAM. But, actually he said the Acer didn’t spec for that. This is why I took (4) Screenshots of my system info to the Acer for you all to examine for me. I’ve titled them as follows:
#1. My System Summary.jpg
#2. My System Processor.jpg
#3. My System Memory.jpg
#4. My System MB and BIOS.jpg
In closing, all is not lost. I use my second custom built IBM running Pro7/64 for my studio recording business for DAW. On that system I use virtual browser and never connect the main platform to the internet at all. Both this custom PC and my XP Pro is run through a KVM.
It’s unlikely I’ll be able to upgrade to Win7 on the XP. But at least I have the second DAW PC to use the internet on a VB.
Thanks for any suggestions I might receive about this.
