U don't have enough memory to run WIN 7 and the system is old.

My recommendation
-Install win xp sp3 if u can't afford RAM.
-U don't have necessary win 7 drivers installed, i guess this is because win 7 drivers is not available for your board. Go back to win xp sp3
-Install the video card if u want to play old games without issues, your current system can't handle new games.

The correct drivers for your graphics adapter (display adapter) seem to be missing, since there is no information shown for your display adapter in your post. That information is supplied by the driver, so I can only assume the driver is missing and the display adapter is currently using the generic Microsoft driver that's built into Windows.

You need to download and install the correct third-party display driver from your PC manufacturer's website, or from the display-card manufacturer's website if it's a card that's been fitted since since the PC left the factory.

If there are no Windows 7 drivers available for your display adapter, you cannot run Windows 7 on that PC.

Run this program, but as stated above the PC is not really suitable for Windows 7.

"RS350_" is likely the chipset used on the motherboard, meaning that you probably have an ATI 9100 PRO IGP (onboard video). It's extremely old, outdated, & slow. With just 512MB RAM, your system is barely suitable for XP. Win7 never should have been installed. Bring your RAM amount up to at least 2GB & install a gaming graphics card.
