Umm, other than getting new hardware probably not.

I just checked your hardware out for virtualization support and it says it doesn't have any unfortunately.

The only possible thing I can think of at the moment is if you are looking to run Windows XP mode which now doesn't require virtualization technology.

Sorry I can't hep more.

If you want to run XP-Mode on W7, then MS just recently removed the hardware support requirements. This is the details of how to do it.

VirtualPC 7, with an update, no longer requires hardware acceleration. 64-bit guests are not supported on VPC7.

VirtualBox and VMWare Workstation, IIRC, run dynamic binary translation for 32-bit guests without hardware acceleration required.

All VM software, due to x86/x86-64 design restrictions, require hardware accelerated VT to run 64-bit guests.

Why no 3D hardware support, huh? :(
I was anticipating using Virtual PC with Windows XP mode and playing some games, but apparently the version of DirectX that can be used in Virtual PC disabled Direct3D and won't allow you to play 3D games through it. It's a damn shame really because it's so incredibly good, but so incredibly...

You just can't beat Microsoft hardware support. I called them because the Wireless Desktop 2000 I bought occasionally, randomly misses keystrokes. They offered to replace it with the 4000 model no questions asked. I don't even have to send the old one back to them. You'd think mean ole...
