    Alright cool, both programs gave me the same key, so I'm sure it is correct. Thanks for the advice. I'll start on the install using the USB and let you know how it goes.

    The USB is working so far, but now I'm unsure what to do. Since there was a problem with recovery partition and other partitioning stuff, I was wondering if there is anything specific I need to do on this screen:

    I don't think so.

    Alright, I finished reinstalling everything and got the computer working. It looks like the issue might be fixed, but I can't be sure since not everything is updated. His LAN driver is missing, so I am trying to find that right now so we can get his Windows fully updated. There is a weird issue with the right click menu, I'm not sure if it is due to the lack of updates or something. I've attached a screenshot, let me know if there is anything wrong.

    That is due to an update of windows as far as I understand.
    You can read about this problem in this thread.

    Alright, got an internet driver, read your thread. From what I can tell, the issue is fixed. His LAN works and he is currently downloading Windows 10. During the first attempt he got a Windows Update error, but upon hitting retry it seems to be working. I'll update you once everything is finished and let you know if it works.

    Okay, I fixed everything and it appeared to be working for a couple days. We started moving a couple days back, and recently moved his computer over to our new place. Of course I was careful while moving it and there weren't any problems, everything went smoothly. However, upon plugging it in and trying to power it up, it did not display to his monitor. I also tried plugging it into my TV, which is currently working with my computer without a problem. I looked up some solutions on the internet and they suggest a lot of problems which seem too unlikely. I was worried t might be a loose cable or something, so I opened up his computer and checked on everything, but it all looked fine. I also unplugged his graphics card and then reslotted it and started it back up, but that didn't fix the problem. I'm wondering if this might be a software problem, because his motherboard seems to start up fine and everything seems to work - except for displaying. Any suggestions?

    Is the monitor the same or different?
    Is the monitor properly connected to the computer? Yes, you have said that the cables looked fine, but please check the cables again and make sure they are in the right connection and properly connected.

    Alright, so final update. I simply took everything out and then put in back in, and then had some trouble with the HDD but finally got everything working correctly. We were worried the problem might have persisted since his computer was taking a little while to start (10-20 minutes), but the problem appears to have disappeared. Since the only solution we could really find was to simply refresh Windows, I won't mark any specific post as a solution. Instead, I will edit my original post to include the information about refreshing Windows and the fact that the problem did not present a viable solution in my case. That being said, you were very helpful in solving the issue, and very patient when I did not understand what you were asking me to do. Thank you for all of your help, and good luck helping others with similar issues!
