D-E-L-L C-A-S-T-A-W-A-Y S-O-S on bended knee, i ask please help me?

So i bought a dell inspiron 546s best computer wal mart had, in retrospect yes, a cheesy place to buy a computer but with a grand and on a whim i did, Oh it was beautiful though... trust me, i let the x keep my car i got out with the dell lol... to me i won. The car was a, anyways the place i moved to required
wireless so i bought a pci card all was well a month happened my x had to make herself an admin account with a pw that was taking up space and i didnt like
her mug on my accounts screen so i reformatted i didnt know what i was really seeing but what was happening was a side by side format it jumps from 0 - 100%
complete never actually copying a file from disk i did notice the loss of it orignal luster no more office (that 1 was left) its factory dell apperance was gone left with vista sp2 pro defaults the resolution wasnt okay but i said you know i still got wwhat i need i can deal... so a month in its asking for a realtek driver and the wireless signal drops i put in the factory disc and its got 8100 its asking for the realtek 8xxx i call around a few places my w/l provider tells me try DriverWhiz only 50$ so i wait to get signal to get online and make it happen fast as could be after it installed it worked fine but not soon after bought in 7/09 the end of that story was 09/09 this is also when i called dell support also noticed i qualified for windows 7 ...i tried and was told the next part over and over numerous times the reason i try again after my previous 2 attempts (again before win7 offer expired) is that in october ;11 my copy of vista broke..... i have insane hacked malware on my machine to the point of ppl knew my email pws! but it light of recent events what i was just told an hour ago explains everything.... every time i called tech support they told me: this is not a valid code you must be mistaken, email support wrote 3 mails and ignores me...i wasnt rude, but i insisted im no fool, i kept the reciept!!! but sometimes im treated like i just dont know where the label is if this helps......i can in fact READ! furthermore, 10 seconds of remote admin and the support app could show anyone it exists! well hours on the phone with dell with wall mart wal mart tells me "weve done all we can for you" is that a good thing idk but i was finally told over the phone" wait 24 hours for wal mart to respondand then fill out an ownership transfer claim....i honestly do not know
so regular registration tells me this:

Product transfer tells me this:

and lastly chat with tech support tells me

So 5 years later it finally shows up as the correct device and appears in my

www.dell.com/.../configuration

it was in my moms garage because i had no idea what to do with it and the tower was stolen.... that's beside the point

I still have the monitor it works like yesterday

I must assume because i actually purchased the machine in 2010 that had a warranty I could never use because it was registered to wal-mart

who sold to me it after the active warranty months later and didn't bother to tell anyone they sold it

I didn't get what I paid for and I blame wal mart who when I call have no clue how to understand that i bought a failing system, that didn't service or update correctly and broke further as I couldn't remove drivers

It boasted a warranty that I couldnt act upon and its the only dell I bought brand new

I'm poor (serious percentile, after  i became disabled in 2015)

Thing is  i love dell its light years beyond  hp who to me is only 2nd best 3rd is Toshiba (they pop and combust instead of beep), then theres  asus,  and acer group ...junk that doesn't want to even try to work if 1 thing was once jostled out of place.... all learned with luck watchmaking hands and reading hundreds of forums cross referencing ebay builds and userbenchmark builds and a luky crepair shop ot of business final liquidation of laptops i got 30 for 5$ea xp3-win7 unrepaired laptop projects o got 20 working with small ebay part purchasing

ive gotten lucky a few times with scrap for gold cpus on ebay found a working t9900 and 2x p9700 and 1 i5 2nd gen mobile with the help of a dentalpick it still trumps many i7s working sxs with a gpu

Its like this:

Starving people figured out dairy, eggs, mushrooms, boats, traps...ect, Technologic innovation continues.... for the wealthy innovate to aquire numbers... Would you consider lawyering a technologic milestone? ....LOL success to me isn't a mountain hike up with no top, I'm somewhat content.

money is just food without fat and primal runting fear run amok ....Caesar proved evolution in 325ce even....

Now you see

My current best are all untested risk buys from ebay turning scrap a 70$ M4600 with not even a cpu, no gpu no hdd no gpu fan sink or palm rest or paneling into

UserBenchmarks: Game 23%, Desk 48%, Work 35%    -Gunboat

-on >200$

my 900$ lemon started me on a path of discovery i even reflowed an ndvida on an m4300 with a bic and a potholder to protect the cooling and made my own aoi from a e6420 and throw away office hp monitor lol (i give stuff like that to other poor ppl)

my repair collegecost 880$ in the  form of an inspiron,,,,-pun- i need xps 8700  board and aftermarket 9010 psu i still wanted to salder a pci-e connection to my old sff 990 board, i just got a 9020 mt i need to change the i3 out ,,,,big 200$ spend for me ....i want xps....if only i knew how to connect with green recycling

ive also got a closet full of ddr333 pre2006 lappys currently not worth the china replacement batterys and ac to complete them for craigslist... i expect will be solid gold in 20+ more years like my 1986 nes lol just don't take them to any relatives garages....
