Say Greg you still get on here? (or anyone else that is using win 7)
I have tried using Win 10 a couple times but always go bak to 7 because some of my programs will not work with 10. My problem now is that MSN is just buggy as all get up. pages are slow to respond jump around alot (up n down)bars are flickering on the bottom of the screen like its loading something but never stops.There are a few other things going on also,No other pages have this problem and I am using Chrome as my browser.Seems funny like MS is messing with it because I won't keep using win 10 :lol: .Anyway just wanted to know if anyone else was having any issues with MSN.

I use Win 7 on 2 modified Dell 630i's. I never use MSN (my GF does on her laptop and has constant problems with it). I stick with older versions of Firefox (36 & 46) with nary a problem. I use Chrome on occasion, mainly to access my routers. Just forget about MSN and stay happy.

I have win 10 on mine. the only problem I have is it shuts down and reboots without warning. I currently don't use it now because something in win 7 has disabled internet explorer and other apps. thought about reinstalling ie but maybe that's not the problem. other than that my machine runs ok.

The NVidia chipset used in the XPS 630i is not compatible with windows 10.
I also tried and experienced the same issue until I found the answer.

There are no known solution at the moment (as far as I know).
I will soon replace my XPS 630i (Q6600 o.c. @ 3 GHz) very soon with a XPS8930 and latest i7
