Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-SZ480 Notebook ?

Can you upgrade a vgn sz480 to windows 7 professional


Answers :

Your laptop would be a wonderful candidate for Windows 7. Sony is doing a great job with driver updates and most things should work 100% right out of the box. If you have Vista, you can choose the upgrade version. If you have XP, you will need to do a clean install, Windows 7 will save your personal files and old windows installation on the "C" drive and will list it as windows.old, I would suggest though that you back up every file you want on an external drive before you start.
