    Go to this link and click on the second option "Download Tool Now", then don't do a upgrade install, act like you're downloading Windows 10 for a different device and let the Media Creation Tool make a Windows 10 flash drive.
    The flash drive needs to be 8 gigabytes at the minimum.
    Then boot from the flash drive in your bios or uefi and do a clean install of Windows 10 after doing a backup of personal files and then delete all partitions Windows 7 created and install Windows 10 to the unallocated space.

    PS: If your pc has a uefi make sure to select your flash drive that has EFI in the list, so Secure Boot is enabled.

    Did you originally do a upgrade install or a clean install ?
    Upgrade installs from one version of Windows to the next one, almost always cause serious issues.
    I learned that along time ago on a old pc I had.
    It was in Jauary 2007 when Vista was released and I upgraded from XP to Vista.
    Once I did a clean install of Vista my pc was fine.
    Try the clean install of Windows 10 first and see how it goes and your pc acts for a few days, before buying a new pc.
