This is not a problem of Windows 7.
You have to install again, BUT, you have to remove from your cumputer the internet cable. If you don´t have the internet cable conect forget this.

The problem her i think is the instalation of windows 7.
Put the Windows 7 on a CD then turn on the PC. and install.
When you install the windws 7, do the manual install, not automatic.
If i didn´t help you, explain, give me more information...

Hi Narayana

I was checking about the configuration of Dell™ Inspiron™ 1525. Let me give you some tips so that you can decide whether it can be upgraded or not.
If you have 2GB RAM dual core then you can go ahead and upgrade from XP to Win 7.

We have something called Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. Let me get you the information about that.
It scans your hardware, devices, and installed programs for known compatibility issues, gives you guidance on how to resolve potential issues found, and recommends what to do before you upgrade.

Please click on the below link for that upgrade advisory.

Please revert if you have any concern.

I have A problem with keyboard it takes to long to responed to my key stroks since i installed win7

On this Dell, did you run the upgrade advisor before you performed the upgrade? The memory requirements and the CPU requirements for Windows 7 are quite different (I know I have a Dell 1525 from XP to Vista and it failed the Windows 7 upgrade advisor) . I run Windows 7 on a spanking new Lenovo intel core i7 enhanced experienced, and I still experience similar problems to that you describe.

The solution is to separate those of 64 bit and that many programs require being run in 'Windows XX' mode - which you will find under the Control Panel, under 'Run Programs made for Previous Versions of Windows.

This may alleviate some of your troubles with the 'fade to white' and lack of response from the keyboard. Also, Don't 'pin to the start-uo menu any unneeded programs that are not tailored for Windows 7. That will create the same problem you described as well.

Please be sure to write back to advise if any of these solutions resolved your problems, or if you require further help. That's why I answer these!! Have a terrific day!
