Can this laptop handle Windows 7

http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Q106/V...008804sp2.shtml

I change the amount of memory and Hard drive. I had the Advisor tool and It said It couldn't because of the Intergrated Graphics Card.

I have 2GB of ram and 150GB

If the advisor tells you no, then what do you want from us? If someone here tells you yes, and you spend a few hundred dollars to buy Windows 7, and it then turns out that the Advisor is right, don't you suppose you might be a little mad?

One of my machines runs a 945GM chipset and a 1.6Ghz Core Duo, and it installed 7 perfectly fine, you could try the 90 day trial enterprise edition from Microsoft and see if it installs.
