    Hi

    I was going to do the Fresh Start on a refurbished PC with Win10 this but then I noticed something on the Control Panel. Comments are after the images:


    re: Fresh Start Win10 on refurbished PC [​IMG]


    On the Control Panel it says Windows 7 as indicated by the arrow. Clicking on that then it shows in the 2nd image that there is no backup.


    re: Fresh Start Win10 on refurbished PC [​IMG]


    This computer is a refurbished one that I got a little over a year ago. I'm thinking maybe it was one that had Windows 7 and then when refurbished Win10 was installed.

    Does any of this (Backup) matter with the Win10 Fresh Start? I didn't want to begin it and then get some notice about Win7. By the way, the Win10 is installed on the refurbished, I have no disc for it, etc.

    Thanks for any help. *Smile

    Is my PC refurbished or not?

    Your PC is refurbished. The refurbisher license is offered to refurbishers at a reduced cost.

  3. Windows 7 Professional Refurbished

    Came across a Windows 7 key that says it is for a refurbished PC. I believe it is genuine. Can I use it on a fresh install?

    PC goes into black screen and froze

    Yeah I'm pretty sure that's not a software related issue which is why I was suggesting that you remove the video card to start with since it's such an easy process of elimination step.

    I'm not familiar with AMD CPUs, I did see that you had listed in your system specs but I had no idea whether or not it has an iGPU

    Is there any possibility of you being able to get your hands on any compatible video card at all?it would be the easiest step to try to troubleshoot or at least one of the easier ones. You should be able to get into the bios without anything but A display cable hooked up to the motherboard
