Hi there,

 

You'd be surprised at the amount of systems that can run Windows 7 now.

Dell's support website does not have any drivers listed, but you can run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to get a good idea.

If you're not using any MS specific applications (Office etc.) then you could always move to Ubuntu which is great for web browsing and basic computer tasks. It also uses very little resource when compared to Windows.

I would be inclined to ask first why is it running slow ? 

 

Looking at a review for this model, dated 2006 (http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=2827) I see it is specified as having 512 Mb of RAM. While this is sufficient to run XP it is barely sufficient to run Win7. What operating system are you running on this laptop ?

 

Possible causes of slow running include dirt inside it, insufficient RAM, and insufficient hard drive space.

 

I think it is worth your while investigating these possible causes before you do anything else. Just upgrading to Win 7 of its own will not improve your computer's performance.
