Maybe, check Dell's support site to see if it has Windows 7 drivers for it. If not, Vista drivers may work.

Or just make a backup of the existing system, or buy a new hard-drive, install Windows 7 and see what happens. Usually the video and wireless drivers are the ones that have issues if used with an unsupported operating system.

My Dell Latidude D630 ran Windows 7 just fine. I believe it had a 2.2ghz Core 2 Duo, 2gb RAM, and 256mb chipset.

Taken from Microsoft's Windows 7 System Requirements:
If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

The DELL Latitude D610 will run Windows 7 just fine. I would hope that you are using a legitimate copy of Windows 7 that your purchased for this endeavor.

The basic hardware specs is not what the issue would be, it's the hardware drivers that cause problems with some systems. Motherboard drivers, network card drivers, sound card, video card, things like that.
