Sad Valentine

Astro sat rigidly in the chair staring at the wall while Reno had his head practically buried inside of his chest cavity. “There!”, he announced laughing, “I've finished with the fine tuning, you're good to go for at least another 100,000 miles!” Suddenly a voice sounded from behind them, “Happy Va...

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

Then use ANY of the ones you posted the link to. ALL SATA connected SSD's will work with your computer, just base your choice on desired size and budget cost. Be aware that due to flash memory chip projected shortages, prices are rising quickly so buy sooner than later!

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

Any of the Crucial SSD's in the first link will work, Amazon should carry them. ANY SATA SSD drive will work, and you have 4 SATA connectors on your PC, but two are probably already in use for your existing HD, and an optical drive (if you have one). SATA SSD's (like the Crucial ones in the link) ar...

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

You can get a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter, mount the SSD to that, and then install it in place of a 3.5" HD. Actually you can also just velcro the damn thing to the inside bottom of the case if nothing else! I found an STL design file for a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter on Thinkiverse and 3...

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

Systems that came with M$ windows installed usually have a sticker someplace on the case with the product key. It can be anywhere, you might need to look inside the computer, could be stuck to the inner side of one of the side panels. Also could be on the bottom of the case. I have a computer that h...

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

You should have the product key for W7 (on CD/DVD install media, or sticker on your computer), and that will qualify you for free update to W10. Just enter the key when installing W10. You don't need to be running W7 when installing W10, but you DO need a bootable copy of the install media (CD/DVD o...

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

There are two types of M.2 slots, PCIE and SATA. If your computer has one of these, make sure that any SSD you get is compatible. Some motherboards can autoconfigure to make use of both. Also some motherboards will disable one or two SATA connectors if a SATA M.2 slot is used. Crucial.com has an app...

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

8GB on an i5 cpu should run W10 ok. Your computer's bios settings should allow assigning a USB flash drive as a boot device, or allow you to select an alternate boot device one time. Most computers use the DEL key, or one of the F keys (Usually F2, F10, or F12 depending on the which make it is) pres...

Re: thinking of a solid-state drive for W10 upgrade

SSD's are made in 'single', 'double', and 'triple' storage cells (with 'quad' cells soon to come). This means that 1,2,3, or even 4 bits are stored in a single memory cell. The disadvantage of multiple bit storage per cell is reduced life as each cell must be written even if only a single bit is cha...
