I do not know if this is THE answer you want - but it is A answer.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
In North America (excluding Mexico, Central America and parts of the Caribbean), the standard audible ringing tone (also ringback tone) is a repeated cadence of a two-second tone and four seconds of silence. The signal is composed of the frequencies 440 Hz and 480 Hz.

I was wondering if anyone knows what the frequency numbers are for the "old city ring back" from the 70s

I have several older laptops that when new were windows 7 machines.  They now have windows 10 and are good enough for what I use them for.  IMO, you need to upgrade the RAM to 8GB and replace the HDD with a SSD and do a new install of windows 10.  This is not very expensive to do.  2x4 GB of RAM can be had used on ebay for about $30 and a new 256GB SSD can be had on Amazon for another $30.  All in for $60 and a few hours to install windows 10.

Is Toshiba out of the phone business now? 
Hello Ed! I'm not sure what you're talking about when you say you opt out of the app store purchase. But as Butch said 4 GB of RAM may get you to the starting line but it will surly slow you down in finishing the race!

I will say this though, when you open a new computer out of the box and set it up it WILL take updates that will slow the computer down noticeably for a little while. I just let it run it's course and things begin to speed up.

I do NOT know a great deal about Windows 10 Home so I may be speaking out of turn but I'm guessing the updates are very similar for home and PRO.
You need at least 16 GB of RAM  for Windows 10, and 32 GB is better.  Your computer will be very slow even with 8 GB of RAM.  If you can't get 16 GB of RAM, downgrade to Windows 7. 

I base this on my experience with  7 computers in an office.  All the computers were the same make and recent Intel i5  models.  The computers that had 8 GB all crawled, while the computers that had 16 GB ran OK.  I upgraded all of them to 32 GB and then they all ran fine.     

Unfortunately there is a RAM shortage right now.  It is expected to last through the end of 2021 or beyond.  The current version of RAM is DDR4.  It is more expensive now than it was before.  If your computers still use the DDR3 RAM, you can probably get that on ebay for not too much.  Or pull it out of some old computer.
