It is a 2005 machine and was designed for Vista so an upgrade from Vista to Win7 may work as the drivers will need updating as it loads one OS from the other OS.
A bios update would possibly help also.

The computer does not work I was told buy a tech person it would cast $500. to fix I said no way. what does it cost for a D900T motherboard. My computer is a look a like of Alienware computer laptop 17"...

Well he wasn't that far off.

Motherboard : $359
Labor: $160

Total = $519

Unfortunately, because laptop motherboards on fit in a very few select machines, their prices are much higher. And, since it is an Alienware, the price is higher still. In fact, the cheapest I found is what I quoted for you and it is a used one and I even discounted labor since replacing a laptop motherboard can take several hours, I only charged 2 hours max even though it is likely to take 3 - 4.
