Pavilion s5503w: upgrade Windows 10

Where can I go to get a simple solution to this incompatibility message?

"This PC can't run Windows 10: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce43.

The manufacturer of the screen did not your screen compatible with Windows 10.

Check with the manufacturer of support. "

HP Support Assistant running me in circles, constantly reinstall itself, but never provide any assistance.

Thank you for all the tips about where to go next.



Joanna, you don't need to buy a new graphics card.

Here is the solution explained in detail for the GeForce 6 and 7 series:
Compatibility with Windows (resolved) 10 NVIDIA issue

Your GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 is a GeForce 6 Series. Users in my post stated that this solution works on your graphics card. I'm going to Win10 with a NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / NVIDIA nForce 630A.

  • Pavilion 6650z: upgrade Windows 10

    I was wondering if an upgrade to Windows 7 SP 1 Windows 10 could prove useful. My desktop computer Pavilion meets all the hardware requirements to run Win 10. It's a CTO in January 2011.

    I've already tried an update to Win 10 on-site the weekend of the new year, earlier this year. While the update process, the indexing for my Corel Photo Paint Shop Pro X 3 process lasted several hours with no end in sight. It is at this time that I decided to go back to Windows 7. Could not find the link "back to the previous Windows" in the Windows 10 settings, I used my system recovery disks to reinstall factory on my Pavilion.

    Before considering a new attempt to upgrade Windows 10, I would like to know if it's worth my time and effort to install Win 10. Also, I would like to know which is better: an upgrade in place against the clean install.

    I read Windows 7 machines that met in the hardware configuration required to win 10 has failed as well in the upgrade process, that the results are mixed at best.

    Thanks for your help.

    You are right to be cautious about making the upgrade of Win10 on a Win7 PC.

    I did it on several\ PC Win7 and it completely trashed both of them - where they were to be restored to factory settings to restore operation.

    I wrote the following to inform people about the measures to be taken during the upgrade PC Win7 to Win10...

    Desktop computers older Win7 tend to fare badly when upgraded to Win10 - mainly due to lack of HP Win10 drivers for older hardware.

    If you are determined to upgrade to Win10, you must be willing to do four things:
    (1) do a full image backup of disk external drive or USB stick, capacity
    (2) changes to the reserved system partitioning hard disk recommandΘes mΘthodes,
    (3) use a different approach and maybe more than one, as Windows Update to do the upgrade,
    (4) prepare for a clean install.

    1: backup of images:
    This is VITAL, because the machine is doomed to failure of the upgrade, and when that happens, you will learn that GoBack to Win10 function is NOT reliable, and that can leave you with a corrupt machine that will require the factory reset and lose all that on it, to get it working again.

    You can avoid this by making an image backup to an external hard drive or a USB drive using Macrium reflect (MR), which provides a FREE version that can be used to image and restore partitions or drives together.

    What I recommend is the following:
    (1) download and install Macrium reflect (MR)
    (2) run M. and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition (s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive or USB key
    (3) use the option to create a CD or a USB startup key

    NOW, you have the means to restore a full system that works for the external hard drive or USB key in a few minutes.
    2: System reserved for resizing:
    There is a small partition on the HDD with Win7 preinstalled machines known as system reserved.  It is something known as the boot loader code.  There is 100 MB format: all that is necessary for Win7.  But Win10 needs 350 MB and, in some cases, is NOT able to resize it on its own.  IF this happens, you must manually use a partitioning tool to resize it yourself.
    3: use a different approach to upgrade:
    Windows Update is the simpler, but less reliable, way to do the upgrade from Win10.  A much better and more reliable way is to use Microsoft Media creation tool: choose the upgrade this option now PC.

    After all this, you know that MS install drivers with only the most basic features.  Given that HP does not have drivers for your PC Win10, this limited functionality is the best you're going to get.  HP does not actively write new drivers from Win10 for the old PC Win7.  To keep all the features of your PC, your best shot is NOT to upgrade to Win10.
    4: be prepared to clean-install:
    If you do all this, and after the upgrade, your PC works partially, this means that the upgrade is not well and stuff is still there the previous OS corrupt the functionality of Win10.

    You MIGHT be able to solve the problem in fact a clean install of Win10. Problem is that, often, a clean-install does not recognize prior activation, even if it should. So, before doing the upgrade, follow these instructions on the community forums Win10 on creating a genuineticket.xml file:

    You need more later to activate your pc Win10 after the installation of clean.


    Good luck

    Try to Win 10 of Win 7 home. By control panel via an ISO or windows update downloaded

    devices, but can not access the internet. After the last attempt, I downloaded Win 10 drivers for network devices

    without success. The motherboard would be incompatible (MSI MS-7525 Boston-GL6) with Win 10?

    Hi there @,.

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! It's a good place to find the help you need, other users, the HP experts and other members of the support staff. I understand that you have some problems trying to upgrade to Windows 10 with your system. I'm happy to help you with this.

    First of all, I would recommend that you read this document: HP - upgrade to Windows 10 desktop computers

    Now in response to your question to see if the motherboard itself is inconsistent, it is still possible, I can only say that it is earlier than August 2013 and so it was not tested in the race upward to 10 Windows, and there are no drivers HP for Windows 10. That still does not mean it does not work, but you would need to use either the built in Windows 10 drivers or try to load older drivers using compatibility mode Windows 10.  Read this document and see the other pages mentioned in the breast and see if this helps you.

    Let me know how it goes and if it does not solve your problem, please mark this message as a solution. Bravo would be appreciated as well.

  • HP Pavilion 23: upgrade windows 10

    I bought recently (today) this computer because than the other is fried, even with a surge protector.  I had just installed 10 Windows on it and was very happy with it until a couple of Sundays ago when he nailed. I installed all day and went through the process to get around 200 + updates from Windows Update.  I have reset until I'm blurry eyes, passed through the test at Microsoft to see if I'm able to get the Windows 10 icon, and it says that I must always install things.

    While at Wal-Mart, there are stickers everywhere telling me that I can download Windows 10 once again, for free.  What I am doing wrong?  I downloaded everything - printer driver (you have new printer, ran everything), ran windows update about 20 + times now, and this is my last resort tonight before you go to bed.  Reset and let everying charge probably helped, but it didn't bring up the icon for Windows 10.

    Thank you


    Do not forget that you did your recovery in case of problem discs.

    Problems of compatibility that you know and that you have your Windows license key available if need be.

    The icon you usually takes a few days to appear as soon as you are up to date, however, you can download and create an ISO of 10 Windows to install Windows 10:

  • Pavilion G6: upgrade Windows 10 has not stuck on the HP logo

    Tried to update 8 victory to win 10. Stuck on the HP logo.  I tried to unplug and and reinstalling the battery (let stand a little and pressed the power button to drain the energy). I tried failed bios, tried to turn on virtualization, all tried restore, startup repair the computer after trying to start several times, restore points are gone, I don't have a CD because HP no longer send them. I don't know what to do with this thing. Help, please.



    Let me welcome you on the HP forums!

    While Microsoft says there is no risk in the upgrade of Win10, because they allow you to believe that you can always return to your BONES and the original installation program within 30 days, the ugly fact of the matter is that the Win10 GoBack feature turned out to be unreliable - and when she fails, she can let machines in a State corrupted - that does not always happen , but it happens often enough to be a problem and you will get no warning beforehand that he goes to the trash your PC!

    If this is not enough, the Win10 upgrade is known, in some cases, corrupt partition recovery stored by the OEM that built the original machine. It's pretty much guarantee that no HP recovery will work.

    What will work restores your computer to its original factory state using HP recovery media.

    It is a set of DVD and a CD or a USB key, which will erase the hard drive (removing all data, applications and settings, reinstall the original OS, drivers and utilities for HP. In some cases, you will be able to order a USB instead of discs.  You must order at HP; they cannot be downloaded.

    You can look online for recovery from the paged media related:

    Once there, enter your product name or number. On your software page and download the drivers, select your operating system and version. Click on "Update".  If the HP recovery support is available for your computer, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for the command Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click on the symbol '+' to expand this entry and click on order to press for more details.

    Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:

    If you live in the United States or the Canada, details are on this page:

    If you live elsewhere, contact details are on this page:

    NOTE: once you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to someone ' one - it can take a while!

    If HP no longer provides a recovery media for your model, a few other sites, you can check are: and

  • HP Pavilion p6210y: Office flashing after upgrade Windows 10

    I have a flashing desktop (goes black and office) after upgrade to Windows 10.  Once connected, it is fine for about 10-15 seconds, then it starts flashing. I couldn't do anything - click on anything except CTRL-ALT-DEL to go to the Task Manager.

    I did the upgrade 2 x already. Before my first attempt, I do nothing with my PC - I did not update the driver. When I arrived the office flashing after improvement, I panicked and immediately brought back to Windows 7. I was able to get to the window of recovery during the period of 10-15 seconds just after the connection. Fortunately, he returned to Windows 7.

    After the first test, I read a little about the similar problem and so I tried some of the proposed solutions - update the drivers on my PC, to disable reporting services Windows (all on 10 to win), to try to go to Safe Mode.

    So I tried again. I updated all the things I can to update (for most drivers) before the upgrade. Do you have PC Clean up. I had the office flashes again. It's the same thing. So while they are flashing, I tried to disable the windows reporting services that is very difficult to do with the Office of flashing. He did nothing clearly. So I went in Mode without failure. After starting in safe mode, I got the normal screen for about 5 seconds, but a blue window quickly flashed and then the desktop on Mode without failure just turned black, only the visible cursor.

    So, I rolled back to Windows 7 new.

    I don't have a lot of things/programs on my PC that I uninstall programs right away if I know that I will not use. I do scan of cleaning/Virus from PC on a regular basis.

    Information about my machine:

    HP Pavilion p6210y

    Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit

    Video card: NVIDIA GEForce 9100

    All the suggestions/help will be very appreciated.

    The only thing that solved the issue is reset my machine while keeping my personal files.

    I've never understood what really caused it.

    Thus, after the upgrade when the screen is flashing, I have reset the PC.

  • HP Pavilion x 2 10-n011nl (Suns: laptop locked after upgrade windows 10)

    Two days ago, I bought a HP Pavilion x 2 (red sunset) 10-n011nl and immediately I started upgrading Windows 10. This medication is ok (no error message), but the first new starting system, the machine is in a loop! Only a black screen with white logo of HP and animation circular points. It is impossible to stop this, none CTRL-ALT-DEL or other. I have to wait for low battery condition (more then 6 hours!).

    And even once, he repeats the loop.

    What can I do?

    Thanks in advance

    Because it is new, maybe start to type Esc as soon as you press the button start.  That should bring up a menu before starts the boot process.  In this menu, click F11 to run the recovery.  Who will restore the PC to 'new factory' and retry the upgrade of Windows 10.  You might want to try the media creation tool page, if it fails again.
