If the hardware is that old win10 might not even run on it and from the sounds of things it might be time for some new hardware.
Meh if this is what your computer is i would put linux mint on it or winXP.

You need two things to upgrade a computer to Win10:
1) Compatible hardware that meets the minimum requirements -- see here:
(Laptops are even more dicey than desktops, because more of the hardware is proprietary.)
2) A valid, legal license -- since there was no free upgrade path from XP to 10 and since the period for free upgrades has past, I assume you have a valid license? <just asking>
Chances are, even if you do have the license, the hardware may not meet minimum requirements.
I would look at other, more viable alternatives (e.g. Linux or a new computer).

Thank you. While I was waiting for a reply, I just installed ubuntu(I think it will work). I got it too boot and use vga. Only thing is only the wallpaper and status bar has popped up.
For an older laptop, I would recommend a Puppy Linux, or even Lubuntu;
