    When a PC exhibits multiple, deep-seated, and serious flaws — including the inability to successfully upgrade — there are four basic ways to effect a fix.
    I have successfully upgraded several ancient PCs (including a 15 year old laptop) to Windows 10 - and the secret is to carefully research and prepare the PC before letting the upgrade happen.

    With the best will in the world, Microsoft cannot hope to create an upgrade process which will ensure that each and every driver is upgraded correctly - and when Windows 10 is put on top of existing drivers which are ancient and completely unsuitable why should we be surprised when an unstable system is the result.

    With Microsoft taking an aggressive approach to upgrading PCs, with frequent persistent nagging windows with confusing options, a lot will end up being upgraded unexpectedly with disasterous results - which means potentially several hundred thousand such PCs in the USA alone.

    If you read the comments in the Feedback application in Windows 10, or read the multitude of similar experiences on other forums, you will get a feel for the anger that is out there - and you might think that a class action suit against Microsoft is already on its way.
