I googled it and it appears the cpu of the E510 isn't compatible with Windows 10. Also on the Dell site nove of the Dimension models were listed as tested for Windows 10. http://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/19/sln297954/computers-tested-for-upgrade-to-windows-10-creators-update?lang=en. We'd need your specs to really do a thorough check though.

Is it DELL Dimension E510 and Intel Pentium D CPU 2.79GHz?
If so, then your ceiling is Windows 7.

Personally I tried Windows 10 when it first came out and I ended up going back to Windows 8.1. Windows 7 is a great OS in my opinion They are good at fixing what wasn't broken.

Put most simply, I would never, ever consider upgrading hardware that is Windows XP era to Windows 10, even if it were said (officially or unofficially) that it could run it.

 

I love Windows 10, but it isn't meant for ancient hardware.

If your computer runs Windows 7 slow, then it would run Windows 10 even worse, as Windows 10 OS is more demanding than Windows 7, mate.

The best way to speed up your computer is, in order of magnitude:

1.Buy a brand-new computer with Windows 10 pre-installed.

2.Max out your current computer's RAM and switch from a classic hard drive to an SSD, and install Linux.

3.Do just one of the things from point 2., while keeping in mind that installing Linux would be free - however, it has a relatively steep learning curve as a price to pay.

4.Do the following with your current Windows 7 computer in order to speed it up pretty much as well as one could be able to:

 

On your keyboard press the Windows key + R simultaneously. Then, type Cleanmgr. Then, press Enter. Then, press OK. Then, wait for the clean-up to finish. Then, restart your computer. Then, delete all the unnecessary programs and files that you don't need any longer and just clean your PC's software in general. Then, download, install and run Malwarebytes. Then, uninstall Malwarebytes. Then, download, install and run Avast. Then, delete Avast. Then, download, install and run AdwCleaner. Then, uninstall AdwCleaner. Then, go to My Computer. Then, go to C: drive. Then, go to Windows folder. Then, go to Prefetch folder. Then, delete everything in that folder. Then, clear your Recycle Bin. Then, download, install and run CCleaner. Then, uninstall CCleaner. Then, restart your computer. Then, on your keyboard press the Windows key + R simultaneously. Then, type in Msconfig. Then, press Enter. Then, click on Services. Then, tick on the bottom Hide all Microsoft services, so that it has a tick in the box. Then, click on Disable all. Then, click on Startup (on the right to Services). Then, click on disable all. Then, click on Apply. Then, restart your computer. Then, open up your computer's case if its out of warranty and is not a laptop and give it a good clean-up with the vacuum cleaner (carefully), a dry towel, some compressed air for the hard-to-reach spots, and maybe even changing the thermal paste on the CPU if that hadn't been done in years and you know how to do it. Then, check if all the parts and connections in your computer are properly put in place. Then, start your computer. Then, follow the steps here - Do Not update your drivers with the software; only Methods 1 to 7. Then, once again on your keyboard press the Windows key + R simultaneously. Then, type Cleanmgr. Then, press Enter. Then, press OK. Then, wait for the clean-up to finish. Then, restart your computer. That's it!

 

P.S. In Msconfig you can keep the ticks in the boxes next to the programs that you want to start up when you boot your computer, such as your antivirus, for example. Good luck!

:)

Not necessarily.

 

That being said, the cost of a Windows 10 license, which would have to be purchased to do what's being proposed, is very little less than the cost of a new "low end" computer that would come with Windows 10 pre-installed and have hardware specs that run rings around the one under discussion.

 

It really becomes a false economy, no economy in fact, to try to do major updates to really old hardware if new OS software must be purchased and/or things like new drives must be purchased.

 

Computers have a finite service life that is far shorter than their potential ability to keep running.  Just as most people try to avoid keeping cars when they become too unreliable or the need for repair is too regular and costly, the same principle applies to computers.  They can easily be a "money pit" (though not on the same scale) and at the end you have absolutely nothing of value moving forward.

I absolutely agree, Brian. The only hard justification I see for people to attempt installing Windows 10 on a Windows XP-era computer is to see if it could be successfully done. I myself have pondered that question about 6 months ago, but ultimately opted against that proposition. Apart from curiosity there's no other reason to try doing the Windows migration that OP suggested.

 

As for the system requirements for Windows 10 vs. Windows 7, you turned out to be right. I assumed that since the two OSs are half-a-decade apart from one another, Windows 10 would be relatively more demanding in terms of hardware, but it seems that this is not the case:

JOQ:  Microsoft, like most software companies, both learns from its mistakes and is constantly trying to optimize code.   Several machines in my own household are running the same, or better, under Windows 10 than Windows 7.

 

OSes in general keep becoming "smarter and smarter" about how they allocate the resources they have to work with.  Sometimes they get it right and/or get better, other times they don't.
