windows 10 download

My computer will not download Windows 10 even though my machine is approved.  When I try to upgrade, nothing happens.

Inspiron 3847 w/Windows 7

500G hd

Intel i5 4450

8 Gigs Mem

Why can't I download W10?  When I try it tells me it is starting and then nothing happens.

Thanks for any help you can give me.  Billswits

RE: windows 10 download

How are you trying? If your Win 7 or 8.1 has all it's updates, the upgrade will automatically download. You can also download the Microsoft Media Creation Tool, which will download and install Win10.

RE: windows 10 download

I was trying to download the update over my college wifi and it was stuck at "Starting download".

I ran a VPN ( psiphon ), and when the download started i paused and resumed after closing the VPN.

so sometimes it might be your network blocking the download.
