I Hate My PC

I can give you reasons for why I hate my PC.

The windows 10 operating system is not working for me.

The windows 10 upgrade from Windows 7 may have been my biggest mistake.

BSOD blue screen of death and stop code and forced system restarts are preventing me from

1. updating my NVIDIA GEFORCE EXPERIENCE driver updates.

2. running a full system scan with my Norton Security

3. Downloading and installing Origin games - The Sims 4, The Sims 4 get to work expansion pack, The Sims 4 City Living expansion pack.

There was a power failure at our house an in the local area in Dallas where I live.

There was a power blackout for about 20 minutes.

The coffee was cold.

I was getting pretty old.

I tried but no matter what I tried, Windows 10 will only allow me to run some applications or apps.

I can't use Windows Office Starter 2010 because when I did a re-installation of The Windows 10 Home 64 bit Operating System to fix errors I lost all of my old files. I lost most if not all of the presets and now I can not use my Seamonkey browser to get and send emails because for reasons unknown the setup process failed because I used either the wrong password to access the Bell Telephone or AT&T database for it and Windows has a desktop app that downloads my swbell email and gmail so I can only use my Seamonkey browser to watch YouTube and write articles.

The bottom line is, I wanted to remove Windows 10 forever and get back Windows 7 but I seem to be too late. The Old Windows folder has been removed with the latest anniversary update for Windows 10.

I can no longer play The Sims 4. I can't even update my NVIDIA graphics driver.

I can't use the old programs because they were deleted. I lost too many files.

After days and days of cleaning out the dust inside my CPU and taking the fans out and cleaning them and then replacing them at least I can boot up now. I keep getting the Blue Screen of Death every time I do something that I normally did a week ago that at that time, before the blackout, worked perfectly. I could then just a week ago, before Christmas, run full system backups, Norton full system scans, updates for NVIDIA GEFORCE EXPERIENCE, play the sims 4 and enjoy Google Earth. Printing artwork on my wireless HP Printer.

I have 200 dollars saved so far. I will have to add more to it. Even when I get it all saved up, how can I choose between buying a windows 10 PC and an older OS system in a new computer so I have more control on my applications and not be under their control. I am a Windows insider by the way, I have allowed this because, in spite of the builds that may or not work, I know my system is toast anyway.

My HP h8-1237c with 2 TB hard drive, i5 quad core intel pentium processor, 10 GB RAM just isn't enough, it seems to get to play my Sims. It seems as if I will need to toss this old system eventually as it is only working at 50 percent, even though all my tests on the system prove that nothing is actually wrong with the hardware and the drivers for each and every peripheral are current. The NVIDIA driver that came with the system is factory defaulted and says it doesn't need updating.

The printer can run wirelessely, wired or in combination and is an HP Officejet 5745 all-in-one, but HP doesn't have driver updates for it that go beyond Windows 7 or 8.1. It seems that they stopped doing things past that. Windows 10 doesn't seem to have certain provisions for older models of printers that used to run perfectly and without fail when Windows 7 was the state of the art Operating System back in most recent days, not so long ago actually.

I would be happy to find a copy of a Windows 7 OS that I could partition off on my PC if I have to buy a new PC that forces me to accept Windows 10.

But Windows 10 is still a work in progress. As far as I know, they will not have it perfected for years to come. There are bugs in the system and I did not place them there.

I know. Microsoft totally cheeses me off at times. You may be able to get a copy of windows 7 for businesses off a computer dealer or on Ebay.

My PC is annoying me as well. It does frustrate me. It can be slow, and I've been having some issues with it. I know exactly how you feel.
