That one is fine for the price. If I tell something better, then yellow cards will continue to come.

I can't disagree that using a USB type sound card may offer the ability
to have working sound in 10, especially if driver support may be less
than friendly for her computer, but I'm not sure I'd say that it's a fix.
Unless I'm really misunderstanding what you're suggesting, I cringe at
the thought that I'd have to solely rely on an external sound card, just
to have working sound.
Using an external sound card for the PE isn't all that bad, but for my
installation that I use every day, I'd find that to be quite
frustrating, me thinks.
Forgive if you meant something different, that's just how I read things.

That issue can be fixable.
Do you have a USB headset? Hope you know what it is... LOL!

Yes and so far, I hope and hope, that is my only issue. I have not
found any resolution for the error I'm getting and the Dell site tells
me that they don't offer windows 10 support for my model.

Will take a look at this. So you have a Dell OptiPlex 755?
Here I can imagine what's your issue but let's make sure.

The main issue that I have is that there is no updated sound drivers
and I keep getting a dialog box on restart/boot up that tells me that
the sound is not meant for this soft ware version. I've looked
everywhere, it seems, for a fix for this, but I haven't found anything
When I go to look at hardware and devices it says that my soundcard is
working fine though.

It's not bad at all. It can run what you want. I'd try to move to
Windows 10, unless there's a really issue.
If you have problem we can try to help. There are users who just
like Windows 10 but you should be fine.

Thanks for your opinion. It sounds weird, but I kinda like the name
lenovo, maybe it is a girl thing, lol.
To compare, my present computer:
Dell Inc. OptiPlex 755
2.67 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo E6750
I think it is 4 gb of ram
So I'm thinking almost anything will be faster, hah.

to like Lenovo, having had mine for around 4 or so years now. I'd
definitely stick with a machine that either comes with 7 or that
downgraded, without to much trouble, but if that ends up being to
difficult, having to change over to 10 really isn't super bad.
My machine's processor is a tad bit quicker, so I can't really
what type of decrease you may see, but if you just want it for word
processing and tinkering about on the interwebs, I'd guess it'd
pretty well. Just as reference, my machine is the x220, upgraded
SSD, which I purchased later down the road and installed myself.
I've also really liked the Dell Latitude machines, but it's been a
time since I had a dell, so I can't speak to them these days.
Just a few thoughts. :)

I want a desktop, I would prefer windows 7 and I know that I most
likely won't find a new computer with that on it. I was thinking
buying used again off of amazon since I've had good experience
doing that. I don't mind windows 10, but my experience is with a
computer that doesn't play well with windows 10 so a more updated
computer might be lots better.
One computer I was looking @ was:
however what sounds like basically the same thing is 4 or 5
As for price I am thinking $400 or lower if possible. But, not
as to get a computer that would only last me for a year or so.
two are the same brand and are "mini" desktops and honestly they
sound bad to me, but I've been out of the loop regarding computer
stuff since I lost my site and now could care less if the
powerful enough to run photoshop or the games I used to play.
When I search I would like a few more specs to look for as in hard
drive types, ram, and processor type/speed. I think that is it,
I'm sure I'm missing something.

Just so these good folks know, what price range, Windows 7 or 10,
desktop? This will give people a better idea as to what you
what search criteria to use.

I'm about ready to look into getting a newer if not a new

getting my divorce for this long I'm thinking I can put it off
I was looking at amazon to get an idea of costs and saw some
for a "mini desktop computer. My thing is that I don't need
all powerful since I usually use my computer for word processing
of things and the internet. I don't use my computer to listen to
All I know is that I would want a faster processor, I'm
drive, bluetooth, wireless (not muy importante, and I can't
anything else right now.
If I spend any money on something I want it to be on something
will last for a while, not for forever, and it be possible to do
maintenance on it or maybe upgrade it.
I greatly value y'all's opinions.
