    What did this computer originally have? If it had it installed by the manufacturer there will be a recovery/installation partition with the OS installation on it compatible to an installation CD. If not make a bootable USB installer or burn an installation CD/DVD.
    If drivers are available determine the manufacturer of your mainboard and go to the manufacturers web site and get all the drivers and utilities. Win 7/8.1 drivers will work in a pinch as well as I have discovered.
    Times like this a beater computer laying around on the side is great for looking for drivers and getting things going! I have been given computers for free and yes some cannot be used for Win 10 but are more than good enough to rescue your main computer.
    If you see somebody is tossing out a good working early or mid 2000's, computer, grab it and set it aside.
    Oh and the spare computer is also good for backing up files as well.

    that clears quite a bit up because I did the reinstall wipe the files and reinstall took about four hours and then after it finished and it got to 100% And it supposed to open up to something I don't know what it opens up to an HP screen I've got a Hewlett-Packard it opens up to an HP screen with a little white balls running around in circles little white dots down there and it'll stay there forever I mean it'll it'll do that well did it for 8 hours and I shut it off so I don't know what that means I didn't know that you yeah okay so it has a partition with the installation stuff on it so that's where it's getting the info cuz you know that the computer is not connected to the internet it done everything to connect with but then it spaces out it just goes out to lunch it'll sit there forever with them little balls in the HP screen and I don't know what that means okay I don't know how to get around that or what I should do and then trying to get it straightened out I found out that I think I had a virus I'm not sure I might have had I don't know I might have got hacked but the administrator password I don't know it I don't think I ever knew it but it won't let me in okay and it's locked up a couple times and I just restart it and get around that but I don't I think maybe I think maybe it's it's messed up so I don't know how to do that thank you for your help
