Your machine should be able to run windows 7 with a few provisos;
You have a reasonable graphics card fitted.
You have at least 1Gb of RAM fitted (2Gb Recommended).
You need to back up all your important data because you will install W7 over XP (although it will save XP data, I don't trust it).
Think about what you need W7 for so you can choose the right one for you. For instance, no one but a massive power user needs Ultimate edition.
For what it's worth, I run W7 on all my systems, all of which are about the spec of your machine, and I'm very impressed.

Windows 7. Is your computer compatible?


Windows 7 is the latest operating system developed by Microsoft. It was release a few months ago and in my opinion is one of Microsoft's top operating systems. It is fast, efficient and user friendly.

To check whether you can upgrade to Windows 7, the first thing you should do is download Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. Save it to your desktop and run it. Follow the installation wizard to install it and then click to launch it. Remember to close all your applications before starting the compatibility check.

After the check completes you wil be presented with a list showing you whether your pc is compatible or not. Look specifically under devices compatibility. Programs is not so important but check to see if you use specific programs that are not compatble.

Also note that 1GHz processor and 1GB fo RAM is recommended for runnining Windows 7, but it can run with 512 or 756 MB RAM adequately.

As I said before Windows 7 is recommended if you are running XP and especially if you are running Vista!

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista. For more information, go to Back up your files and
