    Hello All!

    Im new here. Im one who has not changed to Windows 10. I love my Windows 7 laptop. Its an oldie but goodie. HP 620 from 2009, right when Win 7 came out. Its 6 years old and still running strong.

    Glad to be here. I have a few questions and looking for answers. First Ill look into the FAQ and see if something is related to my problems and then post my questions if I do not find anything.

    Hi mecanicogolf,

    Welcome to Sysnative!

    I haven't moved on to W10 either. My W7 is my best friend and when the time comes, I am sure it will need to be pried from my fingers.

    Re: Hello All!

    Im so happy someone replied. Yes, the same goes here. This old HP 620 laptop just keeps on going and going. I did install Win 10 right after it came out last year, but after about 2 weeks, I uninstalled. It seemed to run alright, but I miss 7 so much. This machine came with 7 and it runs so well. But with 10 the fan kept runnimg real high all the time because I guess it was over loaded or something. When I went back to 7, it calmed down. This is really a tough dude and you cant kill it. Its gone through a lot of rough work over the past 6 years and just keeps on going.

    Thanks for the reply and hope to see you around!
