Will Windows 7 work on dell dimension 3000?

Has anyone tried to install Windows 7 on a dell dimension 3000? Any driver issues, or compatability issues? I am going to do some testing and this is the only test computer I have. It does have 2 gigs of Ram.

Thanks.

Hi Nwebb and Welcome to the forums. It should work fine except that you'll face some issues with video and/or sound driver.

Is the best way to get the sound and video drivers to work by downloading the XP drivers and running them in compatibility mode as the Admin?

You should give us the full specs, but never mind that.

I advise you to NOT install Windows 7.
It will turn out to be a disappointing experience.

Your machine is just not up to par.

Especially the video specs are totally inadequate for Windows 7.

a generic driver obtained from windows update is enough for you. so go right ahead and put windows 7 on it.
