HP Dv8110us OS/Software :: Windows Clean Install / Upgrading To Windows 7

Mar 25, 2014

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.

Dell :: Windows 7, 64 Bit, And Upgrading RAM

Oct 26, 2009

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?

HP/Compaq :: Before Upgrading To Windows 7

Dec 2, 2009

I've finally recieved my windows 7 disk from HP

But before I go and upgrade/install everything I have a few questions.

1. Am I able to do a clean install? Does the product key in the kit allow for me to do this?

2. How would I go about doing a clean install properly? (paranoid about mucking things up)

3. After doing a clean install, am I able to use the second disk to update the drivers, etc. or can I only use it when doing the upgrade option?

Acer :: Upgrading Your Timeline To Windows

Oct 21, 2009

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.

Acer :: 7535g Upgrading To Windows 7

Jan 12, 2010

I own a Acer 7545g and in October I ordered my Windows 7 and yesterday it finally arrived from Mentor Media.

So I followed the step by step instructions and installed Windows 7 with out any problems and added the drivers.

How ever in device manager next to HD4570 there is a (!) so I think my Laptop was only using the HD3200 card.

I tried getting the drivers from ACER Driver webpage and from ATI radeon and it will not work.

Has any one else having this problem? Any one knows if ACER/ATI plans to release a driver to fix this or have ACER just raped me?

I have now reverted to using Vista Ultimate x32 and every works perfectly, but I would like to use Windows 7

Sony :: Z, Upgrading From HD To SSD

Mar 14, 2009

I have sony Z591 with 320GB HD.

If I want to upgrade them with 2x128GB SSD, will it be possible?

If yes, what should I do? It is just as simple as replacing the hard drive?

If I upgrade my 320Gb 5400RPM to SSD, how much faster I can gain when I boot up my windows? Right now, my boot time is about 1 minute.

Sony :: Upgrading A VGN-TT

Jan 30, 2009

I happen to have a spare internal WWAN 3G card (Novatel EU870D), does anyone know if I could upgrade a Sony VGN-TT myself by installing this card?

I guess it'll be down to pre-installed antennas, compatible slot/space and SIM card reader.

On a seperate point, I wouldn't mind upgrading the memory too

HP Envy 17-jo11nr OS/Software :: Upgrading To Windows 8.1

Mar 30, 2014

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 have a SZ120P with the standard LCD screen which because of a recent fall cracked.

I got a good deal on a premium lcd housing and LED LCD so I thought I could use that to replace the screen.

I used the service manual to remove the old LCD screen and housing, and replace it with the new LED thin LCD and housing, but when I powered on, the LCD had no back lighting

Sony :: Upgrading HD On Vaio Z

Aug 13, 2009

I made the mistake of falling for a CTO Z590 and not getting the specs I wanted, which included a 320GB 7200rpm HD instead of the slower 5400.

So, specs online indicated that a Scorpio Black was the right drive.

I've gotten it and have seen the steps on how to mechanically replace it.

My question, however, is advice on how I should go to transfer my data and switch OS.

I currently have Vista Business, 32-bit installed. I would like to go to Windows 7, 64-bit and then bring over my data. Going to 64-bit requires a full install.

Since I am going to switch over to the new drive as my internal drive, is it possible to swap the drives, install the new windows OS on a partition on the new HD, put the old drive into the external HD, and then transfer at my leisure files from the old HD on the new internal HD?

I'm a bit paranoid that once I disconnect the current HD, my data is at risk. Is this silly, or can I upgrade the way I just described?

Also, what are the benefits of partitioning my new drive for the OS as opposed to having everything on one partition?

Finally, the Windows 7 I have is still a Beta version and I have heard that if I install this version, come September of next year, I will have to do a full new install of a production version. Is this true? If so, what W7 64-bit version is available now? I don't mind paying.

I've been putting this off for a long time (have had the new drive sitting uselessly for over 2 months). I'm deployed to Iraq, so have no way to backup my data other than burning some DVDs and if I break something, no repair facilities.
