Clarification Request
Installing Windows is probably custom.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / August 19, 2016 9:03 AM PDT

It looks like XP so you'll need the restore media and instructions for that model.

As to Linux, there are plenty of web pages about installing. So no need to duplicate that here.

I had one of those. There is no way to corrupt it. But I can guess folk might call it corrupted as today it won't work on many websites.

-> There was a Linux for such machines but I DO NOT have either the intructions or the how to's for it. You'll have to google research it.

The windows is not in good condition. My wish is to reinstall it or put Linux.

Just sharing.

Mine had a reset procedure as the OS could not be corrupted (it's in ROM.) But you could break it and a reset brings it back to working.

Good luck in Linux or Android (hint hint) for this one.
Once you identify make and model, try XDA Developers to see if they have any Android for it.

Use that detail

In XDA Forum as that's the place for the only OS I know that ran on such. Android has Linux underneath so that meets your goal.

The less likely to find a port of another OS.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
