  1. Um, to tell you the truth a Geforce 4 does not support DirectX 9, 10, or 11 which Windows 7 uses. It's a DX 7 chip and frankly I would say you shouldn't have got 7 for that laptop as it's really so old it didn't come with Vista.
  2. It was only 10 bucks from my university bookstore so i jumped on the deal. Ah well...
  3. That's stilll pretty nice for that laptop, keep 7 but try and run XP or 2000(not recommended) on it, and it should be fine.
