eMachines is owned by Acer, Dell No.

Here is the information IF you ever want to upgrade a computer to a later version.

But I can advise you that your eMachine is capable of running Windows 2000 and Windows XP.


Put your model number in the link above > then search under operating system, provided drivers


Depends on hardware configuration required on later operating systems, and also find out if the manufacturer of the laptop computer is supported and provides drivers for operating systems later as to whether it is possible or feasible to upgrade or not.

Forget Vista as support extended for Vista SP2 will end April 2017.

Go to your computer / computer laptop manufacturer Web site and see if Windows 7 drivers are available for your make and model computer / laptop.

If this is not available, Windows 7 will not properly work for you.

Run the "Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.


Check if your specifications are compatible for Windows 7:

  • What is the best way to use the Y50-70 battery please?

    I bought the laptop y50-70

    but I want to know what is the best method to use the battery.

    and the best way to recharge.

    NOTE *.

    IAM always use the cable and I gave the battery except a few times.

    Thank you very much..

    Best way to use the battery, if your laptop should ALWAYS be connected in-

    Go to eat energy Lenovo - should be a RED icon in the system tray - and choose the mode for a better health of the battery (or battery Protection or health of battery optimized mode).

    I don't know what the energy Manager version you have, but the option must seem similar. What it does is, it will keep your battery charged ONLY up to 60 percent and will increase its service life.

  • What is the best program to use to create an application?

    I want to know what is the best tool to use to make an app for the app store. ? I was using Xcode, but it is a little difficult to use, can someone pls give me some advice. And you must be 18 years old to submit an application?

    How skilled are you programming?  It is IDE Xcode, you don't like or the languages it uses?

    You can use the Terminal, but if you think that Xcode is hard you won't like, either.  There are some alternative programming environments like Novell or Xojo, but those who are not free, and you will also need to learn the languages they use.  Something like the open framework source PhoneGap is another option, if you use the Internet technologies would do what you want.

    Whatever the used development environment, you will need to have the age of majority (18 years in the United States) in order to conclude the contracts necessary to present something to the App Store.  Xcode 7 + will allow you to build and sideload your own mobile applications without needing to use the App Store, but now you are back to where you started.

  • What is the best way to use files recovery

    I work in FM 11 and broke FM a few times. What is the best way to use the recovery files and save them as normal files? So should I filter a window of the Explorer to "recovery" so FM don't ask me if I want to use the older recovery files? Thanks for your help.

    > What is a wash of the MIF?

    1. Save all the files of FM component .mif as MIF format.
      Save the .book as. book.MIF in the MIF format.
    2. Output FM.
      Restart FM.
    3. Open .mifs. Save as FM, replacing the old (FM probably saved files).
    4. Open the. book.MIF, re - register under .book.
      Note: do not open the. first book.MIF and then try to open the component files, or open the files binary pre - MIF.

    FM11 and 12 can have a free add-on as much as the fact in a single operation.

    Washing MIF creates new .book files and FM have syntactically correct data structures (and that may have lack of bad content). They are less likely to crash, but can still have problems.

  • What is the best program to use to create an interactive pdf?

    What is the best program to use to create an interactive pdf?

    You can't use InDesign, it's just an example of something that you could use. It would probably be better to use something that you already have experience with.

    Once you convert the document to PDF, you can open it in Acrobat and have it automatically detect the form fields by selecting: forms > Start Wizard forms

    It will attempt to identify where you intend to add form fields, but there is usually a good bit of customization to do later. The alternative is to manually add the form fields yourself by selecting: forms > add or edit fields

    You can use the forms tools to add text fields, check boxes, buttons, etc. There is a lot of information in the doc help Acrobat on the creation and modification of form fields.

  • Satellite U200: What's the best way to use a battery?

    Sorry to ask a stupid question but the U200 is my first laptop ever. OK, I already did what most PC magazines will tell you, that is to say completely charge the battery then run until the process of vacuum and then repeat two or three times, it's supposed to get all the cells in the battery operation.

    Now, what is the best thing to do, exercise like that or do I have to wait until the battery is half empty or so & then connect the charger?
    I think that it is not good to run the laptop with a full battery & charger connected, until guy do you say when you want to use your laptop for 6 hours or more?


    > believe that it is not good to run the laptop with a full battery & charger permanently connected.

    Well, the new generation of portable and battery allows to use the battery and the power adapter at the same time.
    There are no bad effect memory with batteries at the beginning!

    So my laptop is connected to the power supply and the battery is still connected.
    It has no negative influence on the performance of the battery. But you should know that there is a limit of battery charge.
    After that all 500times completely procedures of load and discharge, the battery will slowly discharge performance. This is nothing unusual.

    PS: Note: in the instructions you will find useful tips and information about how to manage the battery!

    Best regards

  • What is the best version of Windows 7 Ultimate to buy?

    I have another question: I'm looking for all versions of Windows 7 Ultimate edition (I'm addicted to this software), but it is quite confusing to know which one is the best for what I'm doing or simply, what is the best in general. Some mention a GLC as the MFN (?), some say that it is an OEM some just call it a retail version full version which has SP1. I had 3 different versions of Ultimate on my laptop (I can't say which ones, but they reacted differently) where all turns be fake/false, (very, very bad luck) so before we get through all this again with the re * loading the software, I want to make a decision because on who is who. It's just hard to say which is best. I really put my laptop to his test for everything. I have about 3ooo images, so I do a lot with photography, play the games, many commuunications & helping with my husband's company. It is therefore a very wide varitey of uses.

    Thanks for all your help, it is greatly appreciated! JD

    P.S. I definatley want to Windows 7 Ultimate.

    You don't need the final version to accomplish the tasks listed. Family Premium would do the job very well and you would save $$$.

    What you get, do NOT buy on auctions, Amazon or classifieds sites.

    Back, save, copy all your important stuff on a disk external hard and then start again with your newly acquired operating system...
