Windows 7 & T42

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.
