Windows 10 installed but I ended up not having wifi or lan connections. Gateway has no updated drivers so I went back to W 7......:(

Weird. Typically the generic Windows drivers should work. Or you could download the drivers directly from the manufacturer of your network adapter.

Install Ubuntu or Mint (based on Ubuntu, but more like windows). Not hard, current drivers, secure, and FREE! Unless you want to donate of course.

10 can usually be coaxed to run legacy drivers, but it's a little tough when you've already reverted it, and repeated attempts tend to corrupt the system. I hope you made a backup image before the first attempt.

You could go to 8.1 and get 3 more years of updates but you'll need an 8.1 activation code.

Microsoft's advice, which appears in the end of support nag screen, is to get a new computer.

Was this a fresh install of 10 or an upgrade? Most windows 7 drivers work on 10.

My 7 to 10 went off w/o a hitch, and it still looks like 7! At first my Belarc Advisor showed me on 8, but I read that you need to update Belarc, which I did and now it shows 10.

Just did the upgrade from Win7 to Win10 on my Getac S400G2 Rugged laptop. Worked fine, even though it's a pretty old laptop! Didn't need any extra drivers.

I'm still win 7, looked for it on purpose. 10 GUI feel to much like a mobile surface.

You're thinking Win 8. Win 10 GUI looks very similar to Win 7, IMO.

What is the spec of the Gateway computer? in terms of CPU, etc.

Gateway, as a company, has been merged with Acer a long time ago.

I already ditched Win7 on my laptop for Mint. I love it. Desktop is next.
