Since it is a chip, the HP site is the best bet.

I do suggest switching to XP. That will give us enough time to work on a hardware problem, should the BSODs persist.

It might work a little better than the 64 bit; but you are still faced with the fact that HP does not offer updates for Windows 7 for your machine.

You shouldn't need the x64 version at all, with 1GB RAM.

I recommend going with XP.

Do you think HP will ever come out with any updates or is this just a permanent deal.

Unfortunately, you are correct. It is called planned obsolescence in order to sell new machines. Keep in mind that the hardware in your machine is older, too, and may not support some of Win 7's features. In the long run, you are better off getting a new machine.

My only advice is to get a good machine capable of running Win 7 64 bit. Get at least a middle grade machine, not a bargain machine. The guys in the hardware section of the forum could give you you plenty of advice - probably more than you ever wanted.

The best to you.

Should i just get the xp cd and hope that it loads from that or what do i do. i can't even get to the option to do safe mode .

Try booting from a Windows 7 repair disc or installation disc.

You can create one if you don't have one already: System Repair Disc - Create
