    You appear to have a HP Omni 120-1126 Desktop PC 20" all-in-one which came with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit.
    It also appears it came with the above processor and integrated graphics device and 4 GB of DDR3-1333 RAM.

    It hasn't been tested for Windows 10, nor are there any downloadable Windows 10 drivers for it, but that doesn't mean it can't run Windows 10.
    My concern though is how well it'll run Windows 10, considering how weak its processor and graphics device are.

    Thanks frank, I'm also a disabled Viet nam vet. I guess if it ain't broke don't fix it. Sincerely, saxwatkins.

    You're welcome. :)

    Microsoft will stop providing monthly security updates for Windows 7 SP1 in January 2020, but that doesn't mean you can no longer use your computer on-line afterwards.
    As long as it has an up-to-date browser and up-to-date antivirus app and you keep it properly maintained, it should be fine for on-line use after January 2020. (y)
