Hello!

Thank you for your question. I am Shefin and I look forward to helping you with your issue today.

First, make sure that you have all Windows 10 system requirements. Check the link below for Windows 10 system requirements.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/windows-10-specifications

Second, you have check if Windows 10 compatible drivers are available for your computer. It seems that Dell Inspiron 1720 does not have Windows 10 compatible drivers on Dell page. Check the link below. So, you have to make sure that you can get drivers from third party webpages.

If you are upgrading to Windows 10, make sure that you have saved the product keys for your Microsoft office and Quicken.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
