It could be that 1GB of Ram is not enough to run Vista, I had vista once on 1GB of RAM and the computer went so slow I couldn't work or do anything with it.
What I did was, format the computer (after backing up all the necessary data) and install Windows XP, its the best operation system until now, until Windows 7 Comes out!
Either Install Windows XP, or get your computer one more GB of RAM or more.

Previously i was using windows XP now i installed windows 7. what should i do with drivers ? Its not working efficiently. Hanging problem and PC slow. RAM is 1 GB.


Even though windows 7 can be installed to a system with 1gb of ram it is not recommended because of the extra abilities and the graphical content of the Aero theme

if you're looking for drivers for anything windows 7 is actually pretty good with installing old devices as win7 has a huge database of old drivers

if win7 doesn't have a supported driver for some hardware that you are trying to use, finding a Vista driver will also work as both Vista and Win7 use the same shell and drivers are compatable with each other, the same can't be said about XP as it's using a completely different shell.

Did you get an error message during install of the (system with the SATA 160GB drive)? Make sure the 160GB drive is shown in the bios. Than go to the title, Boot in the bios & make sure the SATA 160GB is listed in the boot order. (Preferred 3rd. boot device)
Please go to the SATA drive's manufactures site & download either their bootable floppy or CD setup software. (It’s free)! Use their software to setup the FAT & cluster size on the drive. You can even set other features that neither the bios or windows can do. Format the 160GB drive with the software as well. The manufacture's software does a better job than windows. If the 160GB drive is a SATA 2.0 leave the jumper on the drive alone. The Desktop Board supports four Serial ATA channels (3.0 GB/s) via ICH7, connecting one device per channel.
Again, please run the manufactures setup software for your SATA 160GB drive. (Disconnect any other drives that may be in the system until windows is installed).
