I reverted my computer to factory and it still will not update Windows.The only way to get it not to overheat is to go to msconfig and tick off Windows Update, but that's not a real solution.Basically, Windows 10’s system requirements are the following (note that additional hardware might be needed to use special features, such as Windows Hello): This means that our Acer Aspire One more or less qualifies for the upgrade to Windows 10, but what’s worth mentioning is that this netbook previously ran Windows XP with a resolution of 800x600 pixels.Installation was performed via a USB drive and completed in approximately 15 minutes, plus a couple of minutes needed to set up the user account.He is a lifelong computer geek and loves everything related to computers, software, and new technology.Windows 10 will launch in less than a week and it is supposed to work flawlessly on devices already powered by Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, as Microsoft struggled to keep system requirements unchanged to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
The Acer Aspire One (or AAO, or AA1, as it's known by fans), is a type of ultra-portable computer called a "Netbook".
The only place where the Acer Aspire One feels old is the booting process, as Windows 10 needs approximately 40 seconds for a cold start.

The bundled Linux distro, Linpus, will work happily in 512MB, but if you want to replace it with a more capable, less limited version of the open source OS, we'd say upping the memory to 1GB isn't a bad idea, not least given how inexpensive extra Ram is these days.
If it's Windows you prefer, you probably want to go the whole hog and take the memory complement to 1.5GB, the maximum the machine can cope with. Yes, we know this shot shows two previously removed screws still in place.
