How to resolve the issue of acpi win 7 on optiplex gx1 800Mhz? Although I have turned on the ACPI option in the BIOS but still Win 7 not installing, giving the error of computer not ACPI compliant. Any solution to bypass this issue. Thanks.

area51 and mi1ez are right... I doubt you will be able to effectively run Windows 7 on that old machine.

Time for a new machine...

OK! thank you for your input. I am running Vista on different machine with same configuration but different make Compaq. And I have heard that it is lighter than Vista so just wanted to try it, secondly I'll be upgrading it to 1.4 celeron. What do u think? Apart from this Pl. suggest any old configuration which runs Win 7 with all its features. Thanks. I appreciate your opinion.
