    I have a dell dimension 300 desktop which is quite old, however i have upgraded a few things in it, including the hard drive and the ram. I have recently decided to upgrade it from xp to windows 7, and have found that the graphics card is not good enough to run windows 7! I need a new one, on a limited budget and it needs to be able to run windows 7, and be compatible with my dell dimension 3000. I have no idea about graphics cards. I dont know what i need to buy nd how to install it when i get one so any help is appreciated!

    Okay cheers, in that case I need to revert back to windows xp, but I'm not sure where my xp disc is, is there anyway to do it without the disc?

    Well as you have replaced the HDD then any recovery partition if it had one is gone.

    Best is to try and find the XP disc.....there should be a sticker on the PC somewhere with the serial number
