The internet card no longer works(had to go wireless), the fans do funny things and the sound card for the speakers is not working properly. That is why I thought it may be time to say goodbye to it, but maybe adding some RAM and a reformat will give it more life.
First thing I would do is buy a 6 pack of canned air and open it up and do a thorough cleaning.

I am not certain that this is the model you have, but I did find this on the Dell support page.

Product not tested for Windows 10 upgrade

Dell is not testing or developing Windows 10 drivers for this product. If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected.
But for Windows 7 64-bit, there are various driver updates, firmware updates, ...

So, if you could go back to Windows 7?? It's hard to say whether it's the unsupported Windows 10 causing the problems, or it might need the Windows 7 updates.
