Is this an upgrade to Windows 7?
Have you installed Windows 7 drivers?
While Windows 7 32bit will technically run on 1GB, it will run much better on 2GB or more.
You probably are currently running half of your memory as your graphics memory which is probably the minimum for windows 7 graphics. With 2GB you would probably have 1.5GB available for windows. With 4GB you would probably have 3.2GB for Windows.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
