Operating System Help
Did your computer fail the operating system test?
You must have Windows 98 or higher or Mac OS 8.6 or higher on your computer to access online courses at Black Hawk College. Since the operating test failed on your computer, you will need to upgrade your system or upgrade your computer, as follows:
- Notice in the Browser Check Up window what operating system version you have.
- Contact a local vendor to assist you in upgrading your current system software to at least the minimum level required for BHC courses (Windows 98 or higher; Mac OS 8.6 or higher).
- Older computers may not be able to be upgraded to meet these standards, in which case you will need to acquire access to a newer computer or utilize the Black Hawk College computer labs during open hours.
