Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.


You will not have any compatibility issues with Windows 7 and your computer system.

Even if your Vista computer was not having issues, I would suggest upgrading to Windows 7. I would suggest such because 7 is superior to Vista, in terms of speed, reliability, and aesthetics.


You will definitely notice a super good change with speed and reliability after the upgrade.

The question was are their known compatibility issues between vista and any components in the upgraded configuration. I don't want to change the OS unless there is no other way to obtain reliable operation.


I don't need an expert to tell me windows 7 or 8 would be better.

I am sorry for the confusion Robert.

I stated such in my above answer.

There are no compatibility issues with Windows 7 and your devices.

I am sorry for the confusion.

The initial question was posted for me that made it sound a little different.

There are no known compatibility issues between Vista 32bit and your system devices.

Typically, if there are issues, the technician will suggest an upgrade to 7 because it would fix the problem. However, you could just reinstall Windows Vista or run a Repair installation of Vista with the same results.

If the tech has not considered it, I would suggest to him that he run a repair installation of Vista.

Often times, the reinstalling of Windows is faster and easier for the tech.
