Will windows 7 run on my intel D945GCNL motherboard?


hello aravthebj, yes it can be done. when u need to install OS, first thing u need to know is system requirements, not motherboard specification.
Windows 7 minimum system requirements is: - 1 GHz Processor or higher - 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit) - 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
check your processor and your RAM specification, if its fulfill that requirements then u can install Windows 7 on your PC.
if u need more information about Windows 7 then visit this site: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/system-requirements
hope this useful, regards.

I purchased AVG but it didn't install properly so I cancelled the installation. Now how did I install the product I've already purchased? I have the license number.


Most probably it seems to be a low ram problem but you should match the specifications with your machine to find the culprit.
here are the specifications

Processor Intel Pentium 1.5 GHz Memory 512 MB RAM Hard disk free space (for installation) 750 MB HDD Recommended system requirements
Processor Intel Pentium 1.8 GHz Memory 512 MB RAM Hard disk free space (for installation) 1200 MB HDDI guess you lack something among them please verify them .
If you re still not able to resolve just comment with error message

Do a hard disk check. Your can download the hard disk check program from the respective HDD vendors eg. Seagate, Maxtor, Hitachi, etc... at their websites. to check if your hard drive is healty!!! or you can use the "Hiren's BootCD".

Repartion and reformat your HDD, before installing the OS using the Windows CD.

Since your PC is new as you mention, sent it back to the vendor and claim warranty from them.

Best operating system for new build?


Either Windows XP or Vista 64 bit edition, depending on what you like...I won't get into the xp vs. vista battle here lol. The 64 bit operating systems can see all of your memory, with the 32 bit OS's, you're limited to around 3 or so gigs. Do note, that there may be some incompatibilities with a 64 bit operating system, though most programs should run fine.
