Have an HP DV8110us Pavilion notebook purchased in 2006. Running XP SP3. Upgrading to Windows 7 with a clean install. Ran the MS Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. This notebook has the AMD Turion 64-bit chip running at 1.8 mhz. I have 2 GB memory. Looking through the Win7 options, I decided to order Win7 32-bit, since I'm only carrying 2 GB of memory. Win 7 64-bit seems to be happier with 4 GB. While the Advisor shows I have some drivers that need updating after Window 7 is installed, I just noticed that the Realtex RTL8139/810x NIC needs a new driver for 32-bit Win7, but under 64-bit Win7, the NIC is compatible.
Should I have ordered the 64-bit Win7 ? Or should I look around for a new Realtek driver ? Realtex has a link to an old Vista driver that should work. Other searches suggest that a workable driver might be on the Win7 DVD.
I have a E1505 (6400) and I was running Vista 32 bit with 2 x 1 gb ram. I bought 2 x 2 gb ram, and it caused all sorts of problems.
I took the opportunity to upgrade to 64 bit with Windows 7 (clean install), and I reinstalled my 2 x 2 gb of RAM. It seems to be running smoothly so far... But only 3.25 gb is recognized as "usable" in Windows and my BIOS.
Does anyone know any settings I need to change or if there is a different BIOS for 64 bit OS's?
I did some googleing and found some recommendations for updating the BIOS if RAM that should be usable is not.
I have an Acer Aspire 5920G with Vista premium 32bit and was wanting to upgrade to Windows 7 (through MSDNAA) but wasn't too sure about it. I take it I can still download all the Acer eNet management etc software as well as everything else that came with my laptop to use in W7?
Has anyone else successfully upgraded their PC and got everything to work?
I have a VGN-CR290 notebook pre-installed with Vista Home Premium. I was thinking of upgrading from Vista to 7 RC1 and I was wondering if I can still re-install Vista using my VAIO recovery partition after I had made the upgrade?
how are folks preparing to upgrade their Acer Timeline to Windows 7? Are you assembling the drivers on Acer's website, or are you content to rely, at least initially, on Windows 7 drivers? For folks who will be upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, what are you doing about the fact that there seem to be very few drivers and applications currently on Acer's support website?
I keep telling myself that Acer is going to release something, anything, in the next few days giving customers at least some guidance and help on how to get their Timelines fully compatible with Windows 7, but those are probably pipe dreams. So... as folks upgrade to Windows 7 over the coming weeks, it might be helpful to post experiences--good and, in particular, bad--for the benefit of the community.

Its really sad to find out that HP is not providing windows 8 drivers for such a high end configured laptop. how can i get windows 8 drivers for my laptop
I purchased a laptop (Envy, 17-jo11nr, PN: E0K87UA#ABA) and tried upgrading from Windows 8 to 8.1. It wouldn't install and went back to Windows 8. This was a few months ago, and I am wondering if it is safe to try upgrading again. I checked my product number on the page about Windows 8.1 and it said my computer hasn't been tested for 8.1. I would very much like to upgrade, but I don't want to ruin my pc.
I am upgrading my Sr490 to windows 7. I was wondering what software I have to download and what drivers. I am also looking for the one click check up and vaiocare stuff that came with the sr490 originally.
I have a sony VGN-FE880e andI upgraded to windows 7 and was looking through my devices and the motion eye webcam is not even on there, i have looked on sony's website and tried reinstalling all of the drivers for the webcam on the website and none have solved my problem. i've looked and it seems quite a few people have had the same problem as me, yet i haven't really found a definitive solution so far.
I bought this Split x 2 a week ago and it came with WIndows 8. Everything was working fine until I upgraded to WIndows 8.1. Now my Touchpad will freeze some times and I have to log out and log back in to my profile to unfreeze the touchpad other times I can get it to unfreeze by resetting the release touch screen buttom.
I called HP customer service and they said it was a Microsoft issue and transfer me to them. Microsoft said it was a hardware (HP) Issue and that i needed to go back to the store where I bought it(BestBuy). I took it back yesterday to BestBuy and they gave me a knew one. I did the same thing and upgraded to Windows 8.1 and touchpad issues is back. So pretty sure is not a hardware issue.
All windows updates are completed. I checked the Touchpad's Driver and it is up to date.
NOTE: I plugged a wireless mouse to my laptop and when the touchpad freezes the wireless mouse still works.
Everything else works great on the laptop is just very inconvenient when you are working and you have to log out to get your touchpad to work again.
I've been thinking about upgrading my computers ram and after doing a quick search I found this. Now assuming this everything is correct I should be able to add another gb of ram to my system. My question is, will I need to do anything such as increase the fan speed to stop overheating, or should adding another gig with the default fan settings not give me any trouble as far as overheating goes?
im thinking of upgrading the processor on my relatively old Compaq V6133CL. I currently have dual-core AMD 64 X2 TL-52 with 1.6GHz and want to upgrade to dual-core AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 with 2.0GHz. I did research on my own and asked HP tech support, which is pretty useless, but still need some advice. My question is will it be supplied with enough voltage, seems like it needs 1.075 / 1.10. The socket type is S1 in both. Are there any other things that I should be aware of?
My current system: 1.6 GHz AMD Turion TL-52 Mobo: Quanta 30B7 with F.3D bios from HP 2Gb DDR2
I haven't been able to locate a Windows 7 x64 version of Acer eRecovery.
I can get to the basic operating system required for restoring user backup files by inserting the Restore CD in the CDROM. But if I select Restore from the eRecovery menu, after selecting the desired restore file the PC reboots into normal startup mode instead of rebooting into basic operating system for the Restore function.
