Preferred Solution: downloading compatible drivers

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Colorful, but useless description of the device.

You need to find out what hardware is in the PC in order to locate drivers for that hardware.

Welcome!

The answer is almost certainly yes, you can run Windows 7. Be sure to run the upgrade adviser, first, just to make 100% sure.

Hi, I recently downgraded my computer to Windows XP because I prefer that OS over windows 7, But now I need to install my drivers included in my laptop, But when I do The device will not start or will not install.. Someone please help (Also, Please do not tell me to upgrade back to 7 as I do not have the disks or the money to do so.).

A:Drivers Not Compatible

your best bet is to go to the acer website for that model to get the drivers, my acer is an even earlier model that was originally recorded as vista/W7, so i doubt if your going to be successfull.

note if your PC was originally W7 you can use the factory restore option no cost involved

I am hearing that ms has stopped support for xp. So i am planning to switch to server 2003, which has an extended support for upto 2010. I downloaded a trial version of the server 2003 r2 enterprise edition with service pack 2, installed it as second os and updated the os to latest fixies. The very first stumbling blok came as i was installing the drivers.

it says the drivers are not compatible for the os. the only driver that was installed was the chipset driver and the ethernet card. i have one extra d-link ethernet card installed in the pci slots. the graphics drivers are also the default drivers that came with the os.

other devices is also showing a yellow question mark(pic included)

i probed for the high definition audio drivers for my motherboard and server 2003 the one that came did not install.

then somebody suggested to change the property of the install file and make it compatible to xp. i did that too. but during installation it said that the xp installed is not service pack 2. so that option too failed.

i am giving all the details of my system. thanks in advance:

No you cannot install a new card as it is a laptop and the GPU is integrated into the CPU. As far as the driver goes the only one that will work with it at this time is the one available from Acer,

Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / Aspire / Aspire 5253

as the Fusion CPU/GPU isn't supported in the reference AMD drivers.

P.S. While you're at it you haven't installed the audio driver yet either. Get it from the above link as well.

A:Are Win7 drivers compatible with those of Win 8 ?

Maybe, if they list windows 7 drivers I would use them. I've installed Windows 7 and Windows 8 on my two desktop PC's that have ASUS motherboards and a lot of the drivers are the same for Windows 7 and 8. They will say compatible with Windows 7 x64 and Windows 8 x64 in the description and you will get the exact same download regardless of which OS you select. My new laptop came with Windows 8 but also lists Windows 7 drivers in its downloads. Before you buy just go to the support page for the one you plan to buy and see if there are Windows 7 drivers available for it. If they are dedicated Windows 8 drivers they may not install, you'll get a this OS not supported or something similar message. You could also Google that model to see if anyone tried the OS swap and ran into problems.

Hi everyone I have a Gateway Mx7118 laptop and it doesn't seem the Windows 7 recognizes the videocard. I downloaded and installed Catalyst suite from ATI's website but the system still reverts back to 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". Can someone tell me if there are drivers compatible with this system and any extra steps to replace the default graphics adapter?

A:Gateway MX7118 any compatible drivers?

iztel, welcome to the forums.

The reason that the Catalyst suite didn't install is there is no support in it for the chipset or video adapter in your laptop (ATI RS480M and Xpress 200M), which have both be relegated to legacy status and as such there will be no Windows 7 drivers for them. Also means that Gateway will never have anythng as they have to get the drivers from ATI.

You can try the Legacy driver from ATI,

ATI Catalyst? Legacy Display Driver

no promises it will work as you have a laptop, but it does work for the desktop products it supports quite well in Windows 7.

Memtest, chkdsk, and Prime95 have all turned up no errors, so I'm not sure what is wrong. I believe it is either driver incompatibility or general 64-bit issues.

I've installed the Marvell Ethernet Controller LAN and Soundmax drivers located on the Asus Rampage CD. I also installed the latest Vista x64 version (10.61.2.3) of the Marvell Yukon Ethernet driver from their website, but I had to system restore to before then so I'm not sure what driver I'm running now.

I have seen a few posts of people trying to get a list together of sound cards that WILL work in Win7. Surely the moderator could compile and forward this request to MS to see what they have to say? I mean, we can't all be dumb! They also can't expect us to throw away our expensive cards just because there are no drivers. Of course, it's not MS's fault that a third party manufacturer doesn't update their drivers, and we all expect Creative Labs to drop us like a hot stone once they have our cash in their greedy little paws, but there HAS to be a solution somewhere? (Solution 1: make mental note not to buy Creative Labs *anything*, and I'm basing this on experience stretching back a bit).
My sound is from an onboard chip, so I will probably have to purchase a new card just to get sound. I have tried everything: BIOS enable/disable audio, get drivers from the Fujitsu site for a SCALEO 800s (you try that one...good luck), uninstall Win7 updates, move IRQs around, allow ESCD reset in BIOS, XP compatibility mode...no luck. The chip is a Sis 7012 with ESS ES1968 Maestro-2, according to those lovely driver update applications that are all FREE until you have to put in your credit card; you know the type.
The only thing hardware manufacturers CAN design and implement properly is a cash register, because that's all they seem to want. Once you've made the purchase, they don't want anything to do with you. MS, please come to the rescue with the following:

Hi all,

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 (32 bit), but now my Lexmark All-In-One X74-X75 printer drivers aren't compatible... well, kind of.

When I first reinstalled the drivers after the upgrade, I was able to use the scan facility of the printer, and print jobs could queue up for printing, but they would not print. When I attempted to update drivers, uninstall/reinstall, etc, I was told the installation was unsuccessful.

I am planning to format it the following days, and I am having a problem.
In order to prepare for the format, I have gone in search of all the appropriate drivers for my PC. My question is: should I download them from my motherboard's manufacturer site (which in this case is ASRock - Intel Chipset), or should I download drivers for each part from its site?

You'd be better off describing the symptoms of your current problem so that others can try to help.

Otherwise, the assumption that going back to "XP drivers" will fix everything may turn out to be incorrect and you're back where you started - with outdated drivers.

Hello,
My desktop computer is missing drivers for a Video Controller (VGA Compatable). I believe it is built-in the motherboard since there are no video cards plugged into it. I also don't have the Driver disks, nor do I know what parts they are specifically because I think it is custom built and I didn't build it, I also don't know who built it, I just got it.

I've searched quite a bit, and I can't find the right driver. I tried Drivermax, a program I've trusted for some time for driver backup and restore, and helped me get drivers for when I forget to backup before I format, but I don't think it detects any driver for the Video Controller.

I used the following as well, but I can't seem to find the driver:
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_29A2&SUBSYS_823B1043&REV_02\3&11583659&0&10

I also used PCIDatabase, a website that also helped me find a few required drivers before, but it seems that, 8086, the vendor (Intel) doesn't have a device with 29A2 as the Device ID.

I'm out of ideas, if anyone have the same Video Controller, I'd really appreciate some directions as to finding the right drivers for my Video Controller, as I cannot really do much on the Desktop Computer, gaming-wise, not even flash games. I could stream videos but I got no sound either. Hahaha.

Thank you in advance,

I recently spent about 100 dollars on something that requires drivers to be used, and it does not support Windows 8. It only allows Windows 7 and Windows XP, so i need to know how to get past this and install them anyway. I have tried running it in compatibility mode, but this doesn't install the drivers properly. I am willing to install emulators for running XP or 7, if needed. Please help.

Hi, recently I've reformatted a really old PC of mine for the purposes of letting my nephews play games. They enjoy playing the MMORPG, Maplestory, but everytime upon launch we get the error message:

Error: -2147467259 unspecified...

I googled solutions and came to a conclusion that it might be my drivers being out of date, so I checked device manager and saw that "Video Controller (VGA compatible)" is yellow and for some reason is unable to find any new drivers to install. I just need to know if anyone can help me identify what video card this PC has (it's an onboard graphics card), and where I can find drivers for it aside from using the OEM disc as I've already lost it long ago; this PC was purchased about 7 years ago...

Hi!

I downgraded the Windows OS from Vista to XP for my friend since the Vista was too hard for him to figure out. However, after downgrading the
OS, I also 'lost' the sound drivers. I tried to download the Realtek AC'97
sound drivers, but got the message that Realtek's drivers were not compliant with Microsoft's 'vendor' policies, so I wasn't able to complete
the download. Anyway, now I need to download another sound driver that is compliant with Microsoft's vendor policies. Does anyone know of such drivers? I'm meeting my friend again on Thursday of this week, and I'd like to have the computer working for him by then. Thanks!

Hello.
Yesterday I purchased a new laptop - HP Pavilion 17-f150nm. It came without an OS so I installed Windows 7 32bit. The problem is that I have a few drivers missing:
Ethernet Controller
Network Controller
PCI Device
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller
Unknown Device

I did not get a CD with my laptop and HP offers on their website only drivers for Windows 8 for my laptop. I've been downloading drivers using another computer and burning them to CDs since my USB ports are not working, but none of the drivers seem to be working.. I've been at this for 24hours now and don't know what to do..

A:No compatible drivers for Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums ... One of the reasons the Drivers on the HP Website will not work is cause they are 64 Bit Drivers ...

If you click on some of the Drivers there they state they will work with Windows 7 64 Bit ...
The problem is really with the Chipset it controls most of the Devices that you have with missing Drivers ..
The Intel Chipset Utility is your only hope ... I doubt it will not Help though ..

I have a disappointing Dell Inspiron 6000 notebook. I recently had to reinstall Windows XP all over again. I asked Dell to send me the disc needed to download my drivers and other things needed for my computer to operate. But, of course they could not provide me with one because "they don't send them for my computer anymore," even though my laptop is only two years old. So, my problem is, since my laptop can not even recognize that I have a modem I am unable to go online and download the drivers and programs from the Dell website. So I was wondering if someone could tell me if I bought some type of cord to link my laptop with another, would I be able to use the internet on the working computer to download the drivers and programs to my broken laptop?? I know very little about computers so pleaaaaase help!

Thank you!

And how would you install the driver for this "cord"?

Just download and write the drivers to a CD or, If the laptop recognises USB, to a USB disk.

Here is my original problem in a nutshell. I am a beginner. I installed an old windows xp i had (2002). After installation i couldn't connect to the internet. I checked the drivers, and sure enough, they had a ? next to their name. I needed these drivers: ethernet controller, multimedia audio controller, video controller. I have only 1 computer, so i thought i should try the ubuntu (linux) cd i had. I installed ubuntu, and now i have internet. I went to dell.com/support and tried downloading drivers. I get this "delldriverdownloadmanager.application", a plain text document, 9.3 kb in size (not the 3.3 mb size i expect). I don't think this is the correct driver application. I cannot open it in winzip. I don't know what i am doing wrong. Can i download these drivers using a linux OS? Any help would be appreciated.

A:Trouble downloading drivers

It looks like Dell is trying to make you use a download manager to download the drivers (why they do this I do not know), try looking for a direct download link, if you can't find one, you can try using a friend's computer to download the ethernet drivers.
