If you are going to upgrade from Windows XP or Vista to Windows 7 then you should first check if your current PC hardware and software are compatible with Windows 7. If there are compatibility issues then it has to be taken care of before installing the new OS.
To check the compatibility of hardware and device drivers Microsoft provides a tool known as Windows 7 upgrade advisor. This tool scans your system and tells you which version of Windows 7 will be fit for your system. It also informs you about all the required updates for hardware and software so that the system is ready to run the latest operating system.
Here are the steps to do it.
Download and install the application. Don’t forget to attach all the available hardware such as printer, scanners, external hard disk, digital camera, USB keyboard, iPod, TV tuner etc. on your computer so that this device can check all the compatibility of their drivers with Windows 7. Run the application and click on Start check button to start the tool.
