    What OS do you use?

    For all the tech skrubs, OS stands for operating system.

    I use Chrome for my laptop, Android for my phone and Ubuntu for the laptop I bought and am trying to fix up.

    If Chrome is the OS, then that makes it a Chromebook. Ergo, not a laptop.

    How did you do that then? I'm having difficulty trying to install Ubuntu on an old laptop of mine which runs Windows.

    Yeah, but this laptop isn't able to connect to the Wi-Fi for some reason and lacks a disc drive.

    Blue Screen of Death keeps occurring. The recommended fix for that is to a system restore. I don't know how to wipe the HDD anyway.

    Plug in the Ubuntu stick then do a clean install.

    How do you not know that.

    Too late. I wrote a stick with Ubuntu on it and jammed it into the USB slot.

    Why do you even want Ubuntu and not windows. Unless you are going to use it for coding or the laptop has really bad specs there is no reason to, especially if you have 0 experience with Ubuntu.
