Upgrade Windows® 7 in Fujitsu® ESPRIMO Mobile V Series Laptops
Do you want to upgrade your Fujitsu ESPRIMO Mobile V Series Laptops to Windows 7? Are you aware of the steps to take to ensure a worry free upgrade?
Running an older version of an operating system has its own disadvantages since you get left behind by all others. Once you decide to migrate from the older operating system to the most current, you need to look into a few things in order to ensure that you have a smooth transition from one to the other. Most problems are encountered because users do not take the extra time to prepare everything.
Here are things you need to consider before upgrading to Windows 7:
- Check for compatibility
- Create back-ups
- Download drivers
- Install security software
- Update and patch
Check for compatibility
The Fujitsu ESPRIMO Mobile V Series laptop is already compatible with Windows 7 so you do not have to check that. What you have to check is the software and other hardware that you use with your Fujitsu ESPRIMO Mobile V Series laptop. This is very important if you are upgrading from Windows XP. If you are using Windows Vista, chances are you may have no problems but you should just play it safe and have it checked anyway.
Back-ups are just additional insurance in case you have problems with the upgrade or you discover that you do have very important hardware or software that doesn’t work properly. Backup your data, software, and entire operating system if possible.
Prior to installing Windows 7, you should go to the Fujitsu website and download all drivers for your Fujitsu ESPRIMO Mobile V Series laptop. Make sure that it matches your version of Windows 7 (whether 32 or 64 bit). This just makes it much easier and simpler for you to finish the installation rather than risking not having all your hardware work properly after you finish.
After you have successfully installed Windows 7, you need to install all your security software right away. This can minimize the chance that any malware could get into your system, either from your network or when connected to the Internet. You should install and antivirus at the least but it is highly recommended that you also install a firewall.
Once you have done all that, you need to set aside time to update and patch all the software that is installed in your Fujitsu ESPRIMO Mobile V Series laptop. You should also update your security software now. Avoid using it while the update process is not yet done as you may introduce malware on your system.
