I was trying to install Sql Server 2012 on my pc but its is giving an error
Operating system does not meet min requirement.......
any other software works perfectly on my laptop but sql server 2012 or 2014 is not working. I have download that software from Mircrosoft official website but still unable to install it..
is there any solution other than changing operating system.

3GB of RAM is under the requirements to run Windows 7, which you are on, let alone an actual SQL server...

I'm not sure what you are expecting, but the error clearly explains what is wrong. To run SQL server, you'll need a new PC.

Do you have Windows 7 SP1? Your Speccy reports says you don't. This is a minimum Requirement.
SQL Server is designed to be run on a Server, NOT a laptop.
3GB of RAM is within Microsoft's minimum requirements for Windows 7 64bit, but everyone here will tell you that 64bit Windows will run Really slow, unless you have at least 4GB of RAM.
As for SQL here are it's minimum requirements: SQL Server 2012's Hardware and Software Requirements | SQL Server 2012 content from SQL Server Pro Again, these requirements are far below SQL server actually running well
