    Loaded Windows 7 on an IBM T42 laptop.
    With a little work I was able to get "most" things working properly.

    The things I can't get to work:

    • Trying to run WMV files on Media Player locks the system down hard. (have to take battery out to shut off)
    • Trying to run any game that came with Windows (like hearts or solitare) locks the system down hard.
    • When I try to run the program that ranks the system performance of my machine it locks the system down hard.
    If anyone has any suggestions on these problems, let me know.

    I was able to install Office XP and everything on it works fine.
    I was able to install Nero and it appears to work fine.
    AVG free works fine.
    Firefox works fine.
