Dell Inspiron 1525 - Windows 7 - Photoshop Elements 8 Incompatibility


  • First, I apologize for not being a techie, but I'll try to put this in English.  Ever since I upgraded to Windows 7 (32 bit) on my Dell Inspiron 1525, I have had trouble with Adobe Photshop.  I figured my old version (v.5) wouldn't support Windows7, so I downloaded the trial of Photoshop Elements v8.  It downloaded, but will not install.  It looks like it installs 98% of the files etc, and then kicks into a file removal cycle.  It seems like this may be a driver issue.  I stumbled across Driver Wizard sodtware and ran their free scan program.  It found many out of date drivers.  However, when I went to Dell to upgrade the drivers I only find the Vista versions and in the fine print they admit that this model of laptop is only partially compatible with Windows 7. 

    Any advice on how to proceed.  I've been a long time fan of Dell, but this experience has brought into question whether I will buy another one.

    Thank you...
