I have installed Windows 7 on an HP Pavilion 710n running a single core 2.7 Gig processor. There are actually two issues with this system. 1. The onboard video is supplied by Asus and is an Nvidia. The video shares system memory with the main processor, so at 256 megs, leaves only 750 or so for the system to run on. The computer will also not accept any more than 1 Gig of Ram. Since there are no PCI Express or AGP slots included on the main board, what if any, are the benefits of adding a new PCI (standard) video card? Should I spend the money on a new video card and set the bios to not use the onboard, or should I just replace the main board with a new one and add a separate video card. This will of course force an upgrade in parts, meaning new processor and memory. The computer seems quite slow, but I really don't want to put too much into it, mainly because it is primarily used for browsing the web along with some music and image editing. 2. When I boot the computer, it gives me the selection screen so I can choose to boot in either Windows XP or Windows 7 The system thinks there are 2 operating systems, but since I installed Windows 7, XP is no longer installed. I have even gone so far as to delete the Windows Old folder. I saw something about BCDEdit, but I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. When I run it on the HP, it seems to run a script in a command prompt window and disappears. Is there a boot file I can edit to eliminate any references to Windows XP Pro and boot directly to Windows 7 without the need to select anything? As always, thank you all. You are the best and I've always admired what you do to help people like me.
