This system will be able to run windows 10 but you may need you to look for the drivers in the components manufacture website.

Thank you for the information. I ran the Windows 10 compatibility and it said that EMSC from Compal Electornics will not work properly. Compal is of no help (not surprising). Do you know what system/component this DLL controls? It was the only incompatibility found. I'm not sure if it came with the laptop (Alienware M17XR3) or if it is associated with some other application.
