If there is a cheaper version of Seven for these purposes (yb, fb, listening music, videos), please let me know.
if I purchase that "Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32-bit - OEM" disc from that link, will I be able to put in the disc drive and install it over Vista without any issues? $99 is a good price.

Bobkn, thank you for your reply. There is no any kind of sticker on the computer except a sticker that says OptiPlex 755. It did not come with any books or discs. I do not have extra money to buy a new computer but if I can afford the $99 Windows 7 disc if I can be able to install it on this computer: Dell OptiPlex 755 which I purchased for $100. As you can see, if I don't do this $99 install, the Dell computer I bought will be a waste.

Thank you,
Cindi
Perhaps you should stop any notion of installing Windows 7.

You cannot upgrade or install a legally licensed Win7 on a computer that is NOT working.
From what you wrote in your first post, you couldn't even start the computer.
Maybe I misunderstand. But why can't he install e.g. an OEM Windows7 - provided his PC is physically working.
