I did an upgrade to windows 7 RC 7100 and my 3DMark scores took a dive to 935. I tried 2 different drivers, but my scores didn't improve. Anyone isntall windows 7, and got better scores? if so, what drivers did you use?
What is the safe operating temperature for my notebook? At what temperature can I expect the system to slowdow (as self-protection)? Does that temperature suggest I need to open up the laptop and clean it?
I checked the Intel website, but they don't include a useful temperature number for this model, that is no "case temp #", the only number is the tJunction, which is 105 Celcius, which must be meltdown temperature. I've had some unusual behavior at much lower temperatures. Including image of temperature diagnostic tools with must-be-bad-flame symbol. I read on en.kioskea.net that safe temp for i5 is 70 celcius, and 100 for latops - that's really hot.
Ok I was a bone head and apparently did not give the bios enough time to complete. I'v done Bios upgrades hundreds of times. So apparently I powered down somewhere during the upgrade I.E. the computer will not reboot now. Unit is a Envy 4-1030us 16gb ram 128gb ssd drive running win 8.1
I just bought a Compaq Presario CQ60-216DX laptop, which came with Vista installed and I need to downgrade to Windows XP (for work purposes). I can't seem to find a Windows XP driver for this model and am waiting to downgrade until I know if I need one / if there is one.
my questions are:
1) Is there a Windows XP driver for the Presario CQ60-216DX laptop?
2) If the answer to question 1 is no, is there a comparable driver to use?
I am going to install MSDN version Win 7 on my dv6700. Is there any issues, esp. drivers issues so far with this setup? Do current vista drivers work well with Windows 7? I am not concerned about big things like display drivers. I am just crossing fingers for drivers like authentec, wifi and bluetooth?
should I download it from windows update site? I dont know the difference between two drivers from HP site and windows update. from hp site there is no such new driver for nvidia and I tried the driver from the windows update it caused forever load after vista login so i uninstalled and went back to old HP's own old nvidia driver so it speeds up.
I have a new Compaq CQ58-353EM laptop. It came with preinstalled system (Windows 8). Afterwards I installed Windows and HP updates.
The problem I have is with the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (ethernet). In the device manager it is shown with a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. In the device state it is stated: Your computer's system firmware does not include enough information to properly configure and use this device. To use this device, contact your computer manufacturer to obtain a firmware or BIOS update. (Code 35).
Laptop has all system and hp updates installed.
I tried the following to resolve the problem: - 2 different bios versions (F.26 and F.25). - several add/remove/reinstall of the Realtek drivers - 2 different versions of Realtek drivers: 8.3.730.2012 and 8.20.815.2013 (from Realtek site).
I am facing problem relating to PCI Device. Whenever i click on this driver in device manager i get a message that it is not installed. On updation too i am getting this message that windows could not find driver software for this device.

1. Synaptics driver doesn't work properly, will grind everything to halt, mouse disappears, external mouse will center on the middle bottom of screen all the time, touchpad will not work. This with the version posted at support.dell.com for 1640/Win7 right now, and the version downloaded direct from synaptics.com.
2. Dell QuickSet crashes at bootup time, same download as above.
3. Webcam crashes often so seriously a bootup is required, now in testing phase with Vista 64 drivers.
i have windows 7 32-bit ultimate installed on my XPS M1330, and i discovered trouble on having the right bluetooth driver, i already check the driver using windows update, some of bluetooth driver from dell.com (exactly R226750, R159805, R140135) and none of them are solve my trouble, here some of the screenshot
I think my XP partition is acting up a bit and I'm due for an reinstall. Wondering what some NBRers experiences have been installing Win7 on a Unibody MBP rev A. Will it find all of my hardware without a problem? Any performance bumps over XP? General thoughts?
I am about to install Windows 7 thanks to my school's MSDNAA program and plan to use the 64-bit version (replacing Vista/32-bit). I remember from the bloatware removal thread where it is highly recommended to install the AHCI driver before installing the OS since there is a performance boost.
Should I continue to use the AHCI driver before installing Windows 7? On Dell's site, they only list vista versions, so I don't know if it is needed or if it even works with 7.
If I should keep using it, should I use the 32-bit or 64-bit driver on Dell's site? I know it sounds obvious that I would want the 64-bit driver if I am upgrading to a 64-bit OS, but I have heard people say many 64-bit drivers are not as reliable as 32-bit, so I am wondering if it matters which one I use
I clean installed the Windows 7. However, I am unable to install the Intel chipset driver. I try to install the one download from the Sony website and the one download from Intel website, but there is a error message come up to say I have a imcompatible machine (something like that). Because I can't install the newer Intel chipset driver, the SM Bus Controller is not installed properly too. It has a ! mark besides it.
