Select the windows 7 you use, 32 or 64 bit system
And download and install all the drivers for your mainboard.
You have to add more ram, its why your system running slow.

Hope this will help you

There seem to be a ew bugs with the download of Win 7 and existing hardware/software. Try running the link above and see what it tells you. Your 1gb of ram may give you a problem(not very much). I'm guessing it wasn't slow before? I know on things like graphics cards, they suggest uninstalling the software before installing Win7. If you have further questions, I will try to help. Let me know at "add a commnt"

You can install drivers from the following link
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%c2%ae+3+Series+Chipset+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%c2%ae+Desktop+Board+DG31PR

Second , as you mentioned it is slow..So you have to upgrade your hardware as well. (e.g RAM) because Win 7 requires more H/W than XP...

Thanks for choosing Fixya...

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.

Dear sir, I have acer power desktop. Previously it windows xp. But when I installed windows 7 all is right but except video. The driver what i have does not work in win 7. How can i install that driver in...


Yes you need to know what video card "or chipset" was used in your pc from Acer. May actually need to open the pc up to see the model of the board if its an onboard. Once you know what video card is in it or chipset if onboard then you can go to that manufactures website and see they have a win7 driver. If not your looking for a new video card but thats rarely the end

Windows 7 Drivers for Printers and other accessories


As it is known to everyone that Win 7 is the latest Operating System from Microsoft and that lacks one of the best thing which Windows XP was having embedded inside it. Yes the in-built drivers which were automatically detected and installed without any rush for chasing drivers. Till date there are many computer peripherals like (printers, scanners, webcams, tablets, sound cards, NIC or Ethernet or LAN card, laptop, notepad GPS devises, Routers, Switches, Modems, Mobiles and many more) for which MS has not yet released the drivers or the publisher has not yet released drivers for Win 7. Hence,ultimately the user is suffering as they cannot use the peripherals which they were able to use with XP but after installing Win7 those devices don't work anymore because of the lack of drivers inside Win7 Operating

System.

The good news

Win 7 has a very good feature inbuilt on this problem that is compatibility driver installation mode. One can try and install the existing Win XP driver in Win7 with compatible mode. If an XP driver is installed in Win7 with compatibility mode then that particular peripheral gives out the efficiency upto 90% .



In order to install the driver first connect the device to pc and then select have disc in the wizard which pop-ups and then follow the wizard and look out for the word compatibility mode. Just select compatibility mode and your device isready to be used in Win 7. Otherwise you can also install the driver through control panel add new hardware and simply select have disc instead of search automatic and don't forget to select compatible mode while following the wizards instructions.

My compaq presario/sr1750nx/ w sata drive/ amd 64 athlon. came with windows XP. I put put a new hard drive in the computer, with Windows 7 installed. I power up the tower, and the monitor stays blank?


Hi!

It is very unlikely to get the machine working when the windows 7 HDD was installed in a different type of computer, because all drivers installed with the operating system are related to the hardware from the other computer.
The best solution is to make a clean install, using the windows installation disk, and after that to download from Compaq's site the latest drivers.

If you still have reasons to use that previous installation, you can try to do the following:

1. Boot from the Windows installation disk
2. Follow all steps until it discovers the previous installation on the HDD
3. Choose to repair it (or better upgrade, if this option is available).

But doing so there only 50-50 chances to get it work, or to get it to be stable.

Hope it helped.

Previous use window xp recently have one note book window 7 our printer is not working window 7 processing the method of driver installed


My dear friend, observe computer peripherals compatibility. If you are telling that your printer is working on windows xp that means the printer designed only for windows xp but some printer right now is supported with different operating system. Anyway download a printer driver for windows 7 if it has and install the software first and plug the printer after installing the software. Have a nice day!

My LG X200 works with Windows 7. Can I install XP on this model. And if I install XP, the drivers available for windows 7 will work on XP?


The drivers for Wndows 7 most likely will not work on Windows XP.
If this laptop came installed with Windows 7 it may not have Windows XP drivers.
Before you install Windows XP check the LG WEB site for Windows XP drivers for your model laptop. If there isn't any XP drivers then I suggest you stick with Windows 7.

PREVIOUSLY USED WINDOWS XP -NEW MOTHERBOARD IN MY COMPUTER- have INSTALLED WINDOWS 7- MY GENIUS COLORPAGE HR 3200 SCANNER NEEDS A COMPATIBLE DRIVER. CANNOT FIND FOR WIN 7


This is unfortunately a common issue with "older" devices with Windows 7 not supporting a compatible device driver:. Your best chance is to install Windows XP in a Virtual Machine under windows 7: the free ''VirtualBox'' virtual machine is what I personnaly use for my incompatible devices.
Hope it helps.
