The hard drive finally failed, so I'll have to buy a new hard drive for it.
DVD drive is defective, my solution is to buy a USB external DVD drive, but can I install Windows 7 from that on that laptop?
RAM, based of my reading, please correct me if I'm wrong, you need at least 2GB of RAM to run Windows 7 effectively, but the laptop only has 1GB of RAM, that is two 512 MB RAM sticks, and I know the laptop's motherboard can only handle 2GB RAM, and I looked around, I couldn't find two 1GB RAM sticks, all I could find was one 2GB RAM stick, my question, can the laptop accept 2GB RAM on one slot, while the other slot is empty?
That's all the problems, thanks. Can Dell Inspiron E1505 run Windows 7 at all, or should he just stick to Windows XP? And to those who will say just install Linux, I'm a Linux user and LInux, unfortunately, doesn't meet my father's requirements, he needs Windows for his magicJack, and yes, magicJack can be used without a computer, however, you still need Windows to register it and renew plans, and he needs Skype for group calls, Skype in Linux doesn't support group calls.
And to those who will say just purchase a new laptop, I wish we could, but we can't, not enough money at the moment.
