I suggest you download a neat little free piece of software first.
It will display all the info about your system
Interrogate the audio and see what sound card you have
From there you can go to that suppliers website and hopefully download a driver.

    you need to get your sound card visible or you are just wasting time downloading drivers.
    Check this
    > Open Task Manager
    > Services
    > Name (alphabetical order)
    Make sure "AudioEndpointBuilder" and "Audiosrv" are both running
    If not right click on them and start

    Thank you Sir, will try that and get back to you. Regards

    Copy that link to your browser and download and run 2 fixits
    1) Find and fix problems with devices and hardware
    (used when new hardware is not detected)
    2) Find and fix problems playing sound

    If you can remember what audio manager you had before it may help e.g. Realtek
    You can go their support site and download

I want to upgrade windows 10 from windows7 because i dont have drivers for windonds 10 im using lumia 1520 with windows 10


You can do it online. Visit Microsoft network update site. This message itself comes you by Win-10. I did get its full update today. the only thing you have to remember is that the installed version of the Windows-7 at your computer now should be a licenced version. No pirated version can be updated.

How do i download the next upgrade after windows XP professional for free?


Why up grade if XP Pro is working fine???????? The only time to up grade is when your existing OS is not compatible with some program you wish to run. Other than that you should stay with XP.

If you have to "upgrade" your best bet is Win 7 but that is a clean install, not an upgrade. Stay away from Vista, Win 8.1, 10 lest you have horrific issues with convenience, compatibility and/or drivers.

I upgrade my lap top which was on vista pro to win 7 ultimate and some of my my device don't work properly like the webcam, the audio speaker...


Install DriverMax 6.41.0.363 or driveridentifier http://www.driveridentifier.com/desktop.php
and drivers choose to present it requires inscription on site.

I had the same problem but once I installed these two could find the drivers it needed. You can also go to the asus website and search for the model name of your laptop.

I have another problem: after install win7, the batery not charge.
I bought the laptop with Vista, but I installed XP, now installed Windows 7, everything is working perfectly but not charge the battery, I've tried everything: calibration, tested various power plans, I ended up buying a new battery but no result . I think it must be some kind of driver or change something in the BIOS that I lack despite having returned to install XP and Vista and battery re-charging without problem. if you can help me send email jubatrakdc@hotmail.com
good luck

Gateway mx 6421 win764 driver issues


You could, drivers are based on manufacture. Like Realtek is a common maker of audio chips, and sometimes distributors use a popular motherboard.
You may have plateaued at Vista, by try the Troubleshooting Compatibility with Vista 64 drivers before you roll it back.

BTW - This happened to me with Win 8.

Toshiba a25-s2792 No sound in windows 7


Yes,....good Ol' Windows updates. Known to knock a system partially out of commission.

Windows has lost the address to the Audio drivers. The reason it states Audio is working properly, is because Windows is full of it.

The Toshiba Satellite A25 series of Notebook PC's, did not come with Windows 7. It came with Windows XP. You, or someone else installed Windows 7.

The updates knocked the audio driver address file to the curb.
All you have to do, is install the Win7 installation disk again, and perform a Repair.
(Non-Destructive Installation)

OR, use the Restoration Disk, (Backup disk)

Toshiba eSupport does not provide audio drivers for Win Vista, or Win 7, for this model. Only Win XP,

{Do I think going to Device Manager, and rolling back the audio driver, or upgrading it, will help? NO }

My gateway 506gr came with XP. I upgraded to Vista, and now to Win 7Ultimate. I can't seem to get the correct audio driver for this desktop pc on windows 7. Vista, everything was ok


There have been alot of problems with Windows 7 and older software compatabilty. I have conflicting info on what audio you system has. One says Realtek:
http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?partNumber=4367
This site supports up to Windows Vista but, in some cases Vista will work with Win 7. You can also try here:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/
Another said Intel, which you can try here:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx?iid=subhdr+downloads
With Intel, click on the "run Intel Driver Update", and let Intel scan your system, because they will let you know if your sound is theirs or not. What it may come down to is, if you can't find a driver, and, want Windows 7, you may have to upgrade to a sound or graphics card.
Good luck,
Dave

Hi, im trying to install windows 7 ultimate onto my gateway. I bought it retail from best buy and am having problem with the install... is it factory set for me not to be able to install an operating...


If you bought a full retail version and not an upgrade, you may need to do a fresh installation of windows. You also need to make certain that your gateway model is able to upgrade to windows 7. Checking your computer's support page, there are no BIOS updates available. Your computer should be fully capable of upgrading to windows 7 from windows Vista. ALso looking at Gateway's support page for this model, there are no drivers offered for Windows 7. All drivers offered are for windows Vista. I have seen computers in the past that will not tolerate an operating system change from the system that was installed at the factory.

If you have a restore partition, you can back up your data, and do a clean install of windows after formatting your hard drive. You may also want to make recovery disks for your computer in case the Win 7 will take on your computer or you cannot get your hardware to work with Win 7 since Gateway offers no Win 7 drivers.
Good luck. Take precautions to back up data and be able to revert to your original factory settings if necessary.
