I am having trouble installing W 10 on my 2011 CyberPower gamer. I'd like to complete this before the expiration of free W 10 next month.
The W10 checkout says I'm good to go for W10, but W10 installation fails every time I try.

 

Processor: AMD PHENOM II X4 840
Mother Board: GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3

Windows 7 Home Premium

 

Any suggestions?

Please post your specs while posting about windows. But in your post there is win 7 already installed so i think win 10 will be install once try to do clean install.

Here's the procedure to follow to install a clean copy of Windows 10

1)  Open a command prompt and type in "slmgr /xpr" (without the quotes) and press Enter

If you get a small window that says that W10 is permanently activated, it's OK to proceed
If not, you'll need to get the product key for your original OS (must be Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10)

2)  Go here and use the "Need to create a USB, DVD or ISO?" method:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10/

When installing W10 (if it's permanently activated) you'll skip the first time that it asks for a product key, and will tell it to do it later the second time that it asks for a product key.
Once you're into Windows (and connected to the internet), it'll automatically activate.

If you didn't get it permanently activated, then just enter the product key from the previous OS and activate in the usual way.

NOTE:  Keep the flash drive/DVD in a safe place in order to use it as a recovery drive/repair drive in the future.

In addition, you probably need to do a "clean" install of Windows 10 which means you will lose everything that you don't have backed up AND, regardless, you'll need to reinstall every program that you use.
If you're OK with that, create the install media as Usasma outlines above, boot it (this is manufacturer and make specific so I can't give a definitive step to do it) and, when it asks you where to install Windows 10, delete every existing partition on the hard dis drive then click next.
BTW, there are 68 ways from Sunday for the "upgrade" to fail which include incompatible drivers, the leftover results of an infection, the wrong antivirus software, and a host more reasons. A fresh, clean install is the best way to go.
