Windows 8 Upgrade time for Dell Vostro 3700

How long does windows 8 take to finish upgrading on a Dell Vostro 3700 Laptop been waiting 2 hours already will it finish and work?

Is hard disk activity icon on the computer animated? If its not, then it is likely that the system has hung.

 

You could try powering it down (cold boot), power up again and see if it picks up from it left off.

Je suppose que l'écran 'clignotte'.

En fait le Vostro 3700 n'est pas compatible Windows 8. D'après ce que j'ai cru comprendre, Dell utilise un composant maison pour contrôler le moniteur et ça ne passe pas. A partir du 3750 ça passe.

 

Oui c'est rageant. Presque toute ma boite est passé à W8 sauf moi .... qui suis le seul à développer des appli Windows Store. Ils sont lamentables.

Not so. Just upgraded my Vostro 3700 to Windows 8. Provided you use Intel chipset rather than Invidia graphics card, the Intel driver works fine with max graphics resolution. Don't believe everything on Dells compatibility chart.
