What is the full specifications of your system? Windows 7 may run on a 700Mhz processor, but not if the video card is unsupported.

Yes, but you'll likely encounter a lot of lags especially if you have less than 512MB of RAM.

Windows 7 will use the standard VGA driver if the card doesn't support WDDM.

If you have 512 mb of RAM or more, it's doable, heck, DocBrown installed Win7 on friggin dual pentium II at 400 mhz, so why not?

Now, it will be very very frustrating to use, even a netbook will fly circles around it, but hey.

I probably will run, but even if it works, it would be REALLY slow, as that system is well below the minimum requirements for Win7.
XP will run fine most likely.

Have a look here: Windows 7, running on Pentium II 133 Mhz / 96Mb RAM - YouTube
Doc's PC is a dream in comparison

hard one to answer ,whats the point indeed ,i have 2 tower in my room right now, people gave me for free ,one a 900 intel and one a 1.4 amd ,full working tower and unless i use them myself ,my only other options is to take them to the recycle depo ,or give them away ,but nobody wants them ,i live in an area where even poor people on welfare want what everyone else has ,like i3 and i5 intel, you cant even get 5 dollars for an older style monitor or older tv's

is it a brand name tower ,if so what is the make and model #
you should be able to open the tower and remove the cpu fan and the socket type should be written on the white plastic around the cpu ,if its a intel ,it will likely be a socket PPGA 370
