Can a 64 MB on board card support windows 7?

Hello techies, please check my computer's specifications and tell me if it can support. My computer sometimes acts weird and i got a feeling that it is the graphic card which cant support windows 7.

Is 64 MB a minimum requirement or recommended hardware?

Welcome to the forum!!
Win 7 should work fine but you won't be able to use Aero. That needs at least 128mb of dedicated graphics.

Hey thanks, glad to be here, since i have so many questions about 7. I have made some observations as well, which i will share later.

So, aero doesn't work with 64 MB? But, it works on my lappy. Maybe, what you meant was, it doesn't work comfortably.

System requirements are generally more miss than hit and are there for guidance only, it might work it might not. The only way you will find out is by trying it.

The Intel GMA 4500M supports Direct X10. So it should (might) work.

The (might) is probably why it is acting funny. Try turning Aero off and see how it works then.
