You have to consider a lot of things other than just the processor when upgrading to windows 7 Ultimate. You need to have enough RAM and a good Video Card to enjoy the features and benefits of Ultimate. If you will install Ultimate on a low spec computer, then it will definitely slow down.
Hope this answers your question.

    I am just new here in fixya hoping to be an expert soon. So I just tried posting this question to see what the askers are seeing when they are asking and receiving questions. I am puzzled why they rarely rate the answers!

    Anyway, thanks again for the answer and I rated you positively for it.

Try performing hard-drive test from BIOS. Check if test is available, you can access BIOS by pressing down F2 (or F8) when starting up the computer. BIOS should open, from there select hard disk self test, this will perform test for hard-drive.

What are the pros and cons of upgrading your OS from win7 starter to windows 7 ultimate? Given that the processor is N450 on a netbook.


There are basically no con's to upgrading. You will gain some features when you upgrade. You may have to install new device drivers for some devices like mouse, external hard drive to work properly, but this is unlikely.

Windows 7 Starter does not include:

* Aero Glass, meaning you can only use the Windows Basic or other opaque themes. It also means you do not get Taskbar Previews or Aero Peek.
* Personalization features for changing desktop backgrounds, window colors, or sound schemes.
* The ability to switch between users without having to log off.
* 64 bit version
* Multi-monitor support.
* DVD playback.
* Windows Media Center for watching recorded TV or other media.
* Remote Media Streaming for streaming your music, videos, and recorded TV from your home computer.
* Domain support for business customers.
* XP Mode for those that want the ability to run older Windows XP programs on Windows 7.

So, you can gain some additional features when you upgrade!

Can i be able to upgrade my windows7starter to windows7ultimate? please tell me how. i have an emachines eM350.

The eM350 is a netbook and Windows 7 Ultimate might be too much for it to handle. Therefore I do not recommend it.

However the choice is yours, and as long as your netbook meets the minimum requirements (1 GHz processor, 1 GB ram, 16 GB HDD space) you should be good to go, the link you need to go to is here:

Official Microsoft website, you will need to pay approx. $170 to buy the lic. and upgrade on-line.

Hope this helps

I have windows ce and i need to upgrade it but what should i upgrade to /

Windows 7 starter is the fartest you want to take this. I would recommend windows xp 32bit o/s since your netbook can't expand beyond 1gb. With windows 7 starter, on the long run, it's going to lag because windows 7 starter is 1gb min requirement already and you have a low running processor. Windows Xp is where I would stay if I want to be safe.
