Not with 512 meg of ram. You need to see what it can be maxxed out to. Here's some info on the hardware requirements:

Drivers might be an issue too. If the drivers for your hardware aren't on the windows 7 disk they may not exist at all. Check the support page for your model to see if they supply windows 7 drivers.

✔ Best Answer
It won't run Windows 7 because Acer have not released any Windows 7 drivers for it, not to mention that Windows 7 needs more then 512 RAM.

There is no chance that all the drivers you need will be on the Windows 7 installation disc, no chance at all. Try it, you''ll see I'm right.

Without the correct drivers, devices like the GPU, sound and WiFi won't work.

The only OS you can run on it is Windows XP or Windows 2000:
