Hi, I installed Windows 2007 in my GX270 PC. Specifications of my system is 512MB RAM and 2.8 GHz Processor. But after I installed it in my system, my PC was running very slow and graphics were very large. I wanted to fix the graphic but It did not fixed. But when I formatted the window and installed windows 2006XP then all was ok.
What should I do to install window 2007 or I should not install it.

Regards,

There's no such thing as 'Windows 2007' or 'Windows 2006'; can you clarify this?

Are you talking about Microsoft Office versions, or are you talking about Windows itself, which has recent versions called '8', '7', 'Vista' and 'XP'.

I'm sorry to say but in my hand is the following "Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit" by Dell.

Also today I bought a Toshiba laptop witch is running "Windows 8"

By the way avoid 8.......really a POS.

From http://www.ehow.com/facts_7488883_specs-optiplex-gx270.html
Dell offers Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Home or Windows 2000 Professional with the OptiPlex GX270.

Note that Windows 7 (ANY version) is NOT INCLUDED in the list, which suggests it is not supported.

Also, the GX270 is what is called an OEM system. It likely contains proprietary hardware components which require specific drivers that may be unavailable in the version of Windows 7 you have (I assume this is what you have called "Windows 2007" in your original post). You may or may not be able to find Windows 7 display drivers for the GX270 on the Dell website.

You should also examine your "display properties" and see if it allows you to change graphics/resolution settings...which can affect the size of the "graphics". The wrong resolution setting can cause images and text to be displayed larger (or smaller) than desired for a given display. One way to get to the display properties window is use the mouse to "right click" on the desktop and select "Properties".

The Dell Optiplex GX270 is too slow for Windows 7, not only that, there is not enough RAM to get it to run properly on that box. You may want to install a Linux release on it or stay with Windows XP. If you no longer have the driver disc you can find them on the Dell site, and enter the "service tag" info off the back, a white tag with about 7 alpha/numeric characters. Good luck !
