RE: Dell system restore and updating laptop

Hi avostro1510,

I understand that Windows 7 upgrade adviser has suggested that this system can be upgraded to Windows 7, however, Dell has not tested this system with Windows 7, and hence drivers for Windows 7 for this system are not available. There are drivers available for Windows Vista 32 bit version which you can install in compatibility mode in Windows 7 but they may or may not work. You will have to search the specifics hardware manufacturer website for compatible Windows 7 drivers.

If you still decide to proceed with Windows 7 installation, make sure that you back up the data as this process may lead to complete data loss. Please refer to the link for steps to install Windows 7. Once the Windows is installed refer to the link for instructions of installing the drivers in correct sequence.

Hope this helps. Please reply if you have any questions.

Thanks & Regards
Saharsh K
