    @camthemanzx

    You seem to be perfectly satisfied with Win 7.
    Why don't you just simply stay with Windows 7 and save all the time and aggravation ?
    I gave you a link on how to stop Win 7 from downloading Windows 10. Use it.

    No i love win 7 dont get me wrong,but i want a factory new win 7 because im not satisfied with it at the moment, and i didn't think i could clean install win7 because i had a OEM license. Thats when i thought of upgrading to win 10 to get a new OS.(plus i don't mind win10,i just would prefer win 7)

    You can clean install Windows 7 with an OEM license - if your computer has a COA sticker on it with a Product Key printed on it. You can also clean install Windows 10 with a Windows 7 OEM license. The most reliable way to do that is this way:
    Clean Install Windows 10 Directly without having to Upgrade First - Windows 10 Forums

    Once you get Windows 10 installed once with a digital entitlement (which the above method provides), then you can re-install Windows 10 on that same computer without having to enter any product key and it will activate by retrieving the digital entitlement from Microsoft.

    Here's a way of downloading Windows 7 ISO files from Microsoft Tech Bench if you don't have a Windows 7 installation DVD/USB:

    Okay thanks for the info but I'm having a problem and I'm wondering if you could solve it,i pressed create media for other computer in the win 10 media tool,then i downloaded the ISO ,extracted it and started the setup,i checked for updates ,it said there was none,then it said checking PC and was stuck on that for about 2 hours until i closed it down.Would you know whats wrong?(One thing?is the coa sticker just the one on the back of the laptop with the product key?how do i know if i have it?noob alert EDIT:I just went to the first link you sent me and I'm following them steps to see if it works,i had already started doing the install before i read you're message.

Sorry...hehe its because i always have a lot of questions but I've never really had someone to answer them and i never thought of using a forum.Silly me.
    Replying here as it's off topic in the other...
    I suggested a full format as the issues you are having sounds like I/O access errors - thus probably a disk failure - just a hunch but a Low level format or clean all from a diskpart command would correct bad structure alignment etc..
    HDD regenerators only hide the bad sectors and depending were they are can create multiple small useless partitions between them - thus not recommended.
    You may want to confirm the state of harddrive with tools like CrystalDiskInfo before doing anything.

    Yes, the COA sticker is the one on the bottom of the laptop with the product key on it. You can run Superfly's Showkey plus, click on the check product key option (upper right), and enter the product key from the sticker to check it.
