Is your computer a laptop or desktop?

If it's laptop, buy new whole laptop.
If it's desktop, upgrade what is necessary on CPU, RAM, HDD/SDD, etc.

You might not have the SP1 for Windows 7 installed. Make sure you update whatever is needed from Microsoft for Windows 7 before doing 10.

HP announced they will no longer provide SP1 or any others.... so if you recover a computer you will lose it if you do not back it up.

That's oddly. I upgraded my five years old HP Touchsmart Tm2 laptop from Windows 7 Pro OEM to clean Windows 10 Pro without issues after I restored it back to HP's OEM version with the recovery discs. Same with my gaming desktop, ran on Windows 8.1 Pro.

See if you can obtain the recovery discs for your desktop.

Microsoft provide Service Pack updates via Windows Updates or download from the official website.

I think DeafDucky's got it.

Caz, if I were you, I'd run windows updates and make sure all the updates are installed, then try upgrading to Windows 10 again.

I recommend to use Windows 10 media creation tools. Google it and you find more info about that. Downloading to DVD or 4/8 GB USB bootable drive. Install from media.

Those of you who already installed windows 10- did you notice your antivirus software getting uninstalled and vanishing with Windows Defender turned on by default?

Two of my friends have said that their antivirus (McAfee and ah crap can't remember the other one right now) disappeared after Windows 10 fully installed, one had to re-install hers, the other will likely redo everything this weekend with her son there to help.

No. Windows 10 upgrade didn't remove Comodo Internet Security, antivirus of my choice, from my desktop. However, the program alerted me the firewall isn't working correctly and I fixed it by redownload then reinstalled the antivirus.

but 775 socket work them, because CPU's chip PAX,NX and SSE2

my other computer is pentium D (775) with Windows 10, it is working, fine,

I tried it. Not compatible with some of my apps. Also display on older apps like Adobe CS3 is terrible. At least the downgrade only took 5 minutes back on 8.1. And if you downgrade the win 10 upgrade option reappears right away.
