Dell – Inspiron 3520 – Service Tag – 9QX8CV1 – Network Drivers

Background

Delivered some catered foods to family members post-thanksgiving dinner.

Rewarded with the good I tried to do, with preparing a dated laptop for donation.

Installation

Going to MS Windows.

MS Windows – 10

Tried MS Windows 10, but it crashed a couple of times upon a normal reboot in the middle of the installation.

Raised my hands up and walked away with a loss.

 

MS Windows – 8

I thought of MS Windows 8, but never actually the OS.

 

MS Windows – 7

I kicked back to MS Windows 7.
