SoulSkin Posted July 30, 2015 Share Posted July 30, 2015 (edited) Did the upgrade from Windows 7 to 10 on my Lenovo Y570 laptop. Went very smoothly. The webcam no longer works after the upgrade. Neither the Windows 7 or 8 drivers will install, The OS stops the install and warns that it's incompatible. Not a big deal, because I don't use it. I just wanted to see how the upgrade went. I imagine a lot these driver issues will pop up for people upgrading. I would wait to upgrade for a little bit, just to see if people are reporting successes or failures with whatever particular computer model and/or hardware components you might have. And of course, have some kind of backup of at least important files, etc. before upgrading. Second issue: Avast AV was turned off after the upgrade. Turned it on and the PC locked up. Hard shutdown and booted back up, Avast was working, but not communicating with Windows Security Center. Looked at their forums, and there are some issues. Had to do a repair install of Avast, reboot, and now it's working. I use the paid version and paid extra for Secureline VPN, which was not working even after the repair install. I found a registry edit fix on their forums. Check your Antivirus compatibility, and any other software you might be worried about, before upgrading and see if there are any known issues.
