Old computer


New Member
Hello just found an old dell vostro desktop that is running windows 7. Unfortunately it’s not connecting to the internet via Ethernet. I’m looking to install windows 10 and have it run properly. Because I can’t connect to the internet I need to buy the windows 10 disk in a store but once I install that will my internet problem be fixed? I’m just looking for the best and fastest way to get the computer running again. I’m not interested in keeping any of the current files on it.

I would double check there are Windows 10 drivers available for the system. As long as there is driver support it should work after upgrading.

Also could be a hardware issue with the Ethernet. Check in device manager to see if there is a problem, look for a yellow triangle.
If there is one it could be hardware or just a driver issue.
