My friend has a 2007 Acer laptop. It has port issues but she wants to keep the laptop and install Windows 7. Can she?

Download Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor from Official Microsoft Download Center

Download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to see if your PC is ready for Windows 7. It scans your hardware, devices, and installed programs for known compatibility issues, gives you guidance on how to resolve potential issues found, and recommends what to do before you upgrade.


Another option would be to use a Linux OS. Visit the Linux forum here or through searches to find out more about the many Linux operating systems.

If you have an Android smart phone or other Android device, you are already using Linux.

Most Linux distros are free....
