Will my integrated sound and video card work in Windows 7?

by on April 18, 2010

Q: I have a Dell Dimension 2400 with following configuration:
PROCESSOR: PENTIUM 4 (SINGLE CORE)
CHIPSET : INTEL 845GV/GVSR FAMILY
RAM: 1.5GB
HD: 40GB
SOUND CARD: INTEGRATED SOUND ONBOARD (ADI 198x INTEGRATED)
VIDEO: INTEL INTEGRATED (INTEL EXTREME GRAPHICS DRIVER)

MY question is that ” I want to upgrade my computer to windows 7 32-bit Home Premium. Would I be able to update my sound and video drivers too for Windows 7. I am scared that I won’t be able to find these 2 drivers. Any help would be really really appreciated. Thanks!

    For a solid assessment, download and run the Windows 7 upgrade adviser: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1b544e90-7659-4bd9-9e51-2497c146af15&displaylang=en

    It will warn you about any potential issues.

    Personally, I’d suggest that the cost of a Windows 7 license would be better spent on a new computer.
