You first need to make sure that you have specific the DNS entry created for the site in AAM i.e alternate access mapping in central admin.
Try to browse the site from the server where its created
Once you can successfully browse from server, try to ping the site from your client machine i.e. Win 7
If you are unable to ping the site from your client, make a HOSTS file entry on you client machine and then ping again.
Once you get a successful ping, you should be able to browse the site.
