how about the driver? what driver version are you installing? do you update the Windows into a newest version?
For such old hardware, Win10 has a very complete library of drivers. Usually you don't have to do anything, as everything should be functional after win10 installation

Actually I did not do anything with the drivers. Windows 10 updates all drivers automatically when they get updated. By the way, if Windows 10 update doesn't update the drivers automatically, then you may install Windows 7 driver on your windows 10 computer easily by using its manual installation process. See this article on how to install a device manually on your computer: https://www.techsupportall.com/how-to-install-a-driver-manually/. Or you can download its basic driver from Microsoft's Windows update catalog website directly.
