Windows 7: Averatec 6130HS-20

Averatec 6130HS-20

Hi all, I have an older Averatec 6130HS-20 with the origional 500 Mb of ram and still running XP SP2 and was considering installing Windows 7, I'm a bit concerned with the availability of drivers. I went to http://www.trigem.com/us/support/drivers.asp and downloaded all the Vista drivers and I believe I can bump the ram up to 2gigs, but also had some concerns about ram compatibility and different opinions about the max ram the computer will support.
Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Run the Windows Upgrade Advisor: Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

It should flag up any problems you're likely to encounter.

Also note that unless you've upgraded the hard disk, that machine ships with a 4200 RPM hard drive. It *will* be painfully slow when there is disk I/O, especially booting and building/maintaining the superfetch cache. Upgrading the RAM wouldn't be the only thing I'd suggest upgrading, and at that point it might make more sense to buy a small notebook (not a netbook, but a subnotebook) if that small, low-power form factor is important. It will end up costing almost the same amount of money, and the machine won't be 5-6 years old either. It's up to you, but my suggestion (on the HDD speed alone) would be "don't do it".

Thanks for the advice, I hadn't realized or considered that.
