Dell 4700 Windows 7 Compatibility

#1

The subject line says it all; is the Dell Dimension 47oo compatible with Windows 7?

Dell does not show it as being compatible, but the Windows 7 Advisor (beta) indicated it met all requirements.

Has anyone successfully installed Windows 7 on a Dell 4700?

Thanks, Charlietuna

I think it will work, the only trouble would be with the video. Someone else might be able to shine some more light on it.

I think the video won’t be supported, I would install a cheap card Radeon HD 4650 512MB 128-bit $45. Remember to disable the onboard video in the BIOS, also make sure the MB has the latest BIOS version installed.

Thanks, Eric. I have an NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS currently installed, with current driver. I’ll check to be sure I have disabled the integrated video on my next boot.

Appreciate your prompt reply.
