hi, thanks for the response. it is not just wireless. i have ADSL at home, every time i use the internet the connection is not stable so i activate the wifi and join the net, then after few minutes the connection is lost again, so i turn the wifi off back to LAN. i observed this problem only with win 10 pc, my old win 7 was ok.
i tried your solution but i did not work.

Thank you for the advice.
I tried all the options you put but none worked, so i called the ISP and the PC vendor.
The ISP adviced to check/change the wiring and the PC vendor checked the PC and found nothing wrong.
anyway, i plan to install Windows 7, the best Windows available, so my questions are; can i add another hard drive on my Omen 870-102nx and can i install windows 7 on that hard drive ?.

I understand you want to know if you can add another hard drive and install windows 7 on it. I'll try my best to help you with this,
I did check the product specification and found that the original operating system which was installed on the PC was Windows 10. HP does not recommend downgrading of OS, however, you could go ahead and install Window 7 at your own discretion, Yes, you could go ahead and add a new hard drive and then install Windows 7 which should work, should you come across any issues, I would suggest you contact Microsoft for further assistance.
I hope this answers your question, let me know if you need any further assistance, I'll be more than happy to help.
If I have helped you resolve the issue, feel free to give me a virtual high-five by clicking the 'Thumbs Up' icon below,
Followed by clicking on "Accept as solution" from the drop-down menu on the upper right corner,
Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum. Have a great day!
