How much hard disk space have you - give total and free space?

How much RAM have you installed?
[memory is RAM as you probably know].

What operating system is currently in use?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

✔ Best Answer
Not a good candidate for Win7. Maximum RAM is only 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR266. It will run Win7, but not very well. Try a lightweight version of Linux instead. I'm a fan of Zorin & Mint, but there are literally 100's of other choices, all free!
