Has anyone upgraded a Dell Studio 540 from Windows 7 to Windows 10?
My daughter has a Dell Studio 540 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and she's been asking me if it's OK to upgrade to Windows 10. Since I live several hundred miles from her I didn't want to tell her to go ahead until I had a chance to check things out and now I'm wondering myself what to do.
I fired up some Dell utility for drivers and updates and it came back with a message that said the Studio 540 had not been tested for compatibility with Windows 10 and if an upgrade was attempted things might not work. Of course that doesn't really mean they won't it only means that Dell hasn't tested anything and they're covering themselves just in case. Now The Windows Upgrade Icon is in her system tray and it says that the machine was tested and found to be compatible with no issues found so drivers might exist from Microsoft.
So, has anyone upgraded a Dell Studio 540? If so, what if any problems did you encounter?

Not a 540 but I have a Dell Studio 17/1747 Notebook that I upgraded to Win10, haven't seen any problems yet. But I'd put the Service Tag [label on the case] in http://support.dell.com to see if they have updated drivers for Win10. Other Dell machines I've Upgraded had support built-in except for needing new Bluetooth drivers on one which Dell had.

You might download and run the Windows 8.1 Upgrade Assistant...
Microsoft has stated in the past that if your system and applications are compatible with Windows 8.1, they should be good to go for Windows 10.
