When I picked up my other stick of memory the other day a best buy [i know]. Their tech said I would probably need another bigger processor to run 10 well.

 

The extra stick helped some but mebe not enough. I still sometimes get the blue whirly gig thing like something is slow loading.

A CPU of 1GHz is the minimum requirement to run Windows 10.

However, don't expect it to be running smoothly at all, or even at a decent speed.

If you need recommendations for a CPU, you can ask in the Internal Hardware section :)

Depending on what motherboard you have. Older motherboards will support the quad intel or duel amd cores, but won't support newer processors. May I ask how old the computer is?

Bought last year and it had just been sitting. Did the free upgrade to 10 but the PC as-is meets only the min. reguirements.

I did manage to find out it has a HP 2330 99.5 motherboard. The PC is sold as a laptop but it is more of a notebook.

HP needs to do a little work on their online support pages. There is a form to fill out describeing your problem but no button/link to send it. Only other option is to call tech support for $59. Soon to be @ $79

So you have a HP P6-2330? P6 stands for Pavilion 6 series I think.

Most often, the motherboard model on prebuilt laptops and computers won't be the same as the product number/model. It's normal.

Ok I can buy that, while researching [googleing] I found several references to P62330 each link referred this used in a desktop/tower not a laptop/notebook. I am awaiting answers in the hardware forum now LOL Even at HP online services the P62330 are said to be in desktops.

Well if you Google "HP 2330" (that's what I did earlier) and you go in the Image section of Google, you get laptops screenshots hence why I assumed that.

Yup looks like it holds 4 ddr2 sticks of up right memory[ thats a tower]  most laptops/notebooks laydown on their sides because of the lack of room in the case.
