Microsoft has site to test your system.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

You can run windows 7 on this machine but it must be 32 bit and for me the only way it would load was to have XP on it then insert install disc and latch it this way. Would not recognize disc on boot even if you chose it from boot menu. It would how ever install from a USB stick but not all people know how to make one, check out how to make a boot-able Windows 7 USB. WinToFlash. http://wintoflash.com/home/en/ Home page. Chose Download tab. Chose from Last version list. Follow directions, it is easy. Or the download page is http://www.fiberdownload.com/Transf... Click on From our server 1 middle of page. Download file, unzip, open folder Novicorp_WinToFlash, Double click WinToFlash.exe and away you go. This computer would also only handle 512mb of RAM max. Works fine but you don't get some features like Aero peak. Think XP would have been just fine but I like to play. P.S. I did know about Windows site , it also shows up as an option to check when you try to install. Thanks to everyone.
