    I have a Toshiba NB305 Netbook. It came with Windows 7 Starter on it, and I am looking into upgrading to Windows 7 Home Edition, but need to be sure it will be supported. Everything looks good, however unsure if the graphic card will be good enough. Need opinions please...

    My specs are below;

    Processor: Intel Atom CPU N455 @ 1.66 GHz
    Memory: 1.00 GB
    Disk Space: 223 GB total, 195 GB free
    System Type: 32-bit Operating System
    Graphic Card: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 (DirectX 9c Support)

    Microsoft says the System Requirements for a 32-bit Operating System are;

    Processor: 1 Ghz or faster
    Memory: 1 GB
    Disk Space: 16 GB
    Graphic Card: DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

    Thank you. You don't think it will slow it down if I do that, do you?

    it is already slow with the starter version so doubt it will be any slower with other versions. i suggest tho to make it somewhat faster is to max out your ram as you are not using all 1 gig for windows as some is used for onboard video. also edit you sig so only shows 5 lines of text as per forum rules.
