Hp pavillion converted into windows 7 ultimate from windows vista and sound does not function. downloaded sound driver for windows 7 but does not work still. please help...

Try 'roll back driver', follow these steps;
- Open Device Manger from the Windows 7 Control Panel.
- In Device Manager, locate the device that you want to roll back the driver for (her its sound driver). (Navigate through the hardware categories by clicking the > icon. You can find specific devices under these major hardware categories.)
- After finding the hardware you're rolling back the driver for, right click on the device's name or icon and click on Properties.
- In the Properties window for the device, click the Driver tab.
- On the Driver tab, click the Roll Back Driver button. (If the Roll Back Driver button is disabled, Windows 7 does not have a previous driver to roll back to so you won't be able to complete this process.)
- Click the Yes button to the "Are you sure you would like to roll back to the previously installed driver software?" question.
The previously installed driver will now be restored. You should see the Roll Back Driver button as disabled after the roll back is complete.
- Click the Close button at the bottom of the device properties screen.
- Click Yes on the System Settings Change dialog box that says "Your hardware settings have changed. You must restart your computer for these changes to take effect. Do you want to restart your computer now?"
DONE, Hope this helps,
Please rate if this solution was helpful, thanks!

Windows Vista: How to roll back a driver

Device drivers are often updated to add functionality or increase performance. Usually, installing the newest driver is a good thing, but sometimes there is a bug in the driver software, or the new driver is incompatible with your system, and you'll want to go back to the previous version. Windows saves a copy of the old driver, so you can easily "roll back" to the version that you know works.

To roll back a driver in Windows Vista, follow these steps:

A. Click the Vista orb to open the Start menu.

B. In the Search bar, type "device" and then click Device Manager in the list of results.

C. Click Continue when the User Account Control window pops up.

D. In the Device Manager, click on the plus sign (+) next to the appropriate category, and double click on the device that needs its driver rolled back.

E. Go to the Driver tab, and click the Roll Back Driver button.

F. Follow the system prompts.

If the Roll Back Driver button is grayed out, that means there is no previous version of the driver to roll back to. You can visit the device manufacturer's web page and try to find an older version of the driver there.

It's important to note that rolling back a driver installs whichever version of the driver you had loaded on your system, not the second most recent version. So if you had version 1.0 installed for your wireless keyboard, then you updated to version 3.4, rolling back your driver would reinstall version 1.0, no matter how many versions had been released between the two.

Why nvidia graphics not supported to my window 7 ultimate

NVIDIA refuses to roll out drivers supporting Graphical Processing Units that where designed for windows XP and Vista due to known issues with the Windows Vista Operating System misusing system memory while processing graphic data. This has imposed a problem with constructing drivers for windows 7 as they completely removes aspects of windows that are crucial to to those components continual function. Your best Luck is to roll your video drivers back to how windows originally installed them and ignore windows update's assurance of newer updated drivers.
If this doesnt work, then windows xp will start calling your name very shortly (still my fav OS of the decade) GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!!!

My computer wont recognize this flash drive but other computers will. The driver installed properly. The other computer will.I have a resume Im trying to retriev on microsoft word. On this computer Im...

I don't know what your computer is...but you can try updating/rolling back the USB driver iteself (not the driver for the plug and play flash drive,, which installs automatically when you plug it in) A program which I really like for finding driver updates is can download it, and on the free version you can download and install 2 drivers a day, or you can buy it for different time periods. I used to get the $10/30 day license to update all my drivers, but I like it so much I just paid to register it a couple years. ( I use it for my business) If you have done a recent update which updated the driver, you can try rolling it back to the previous version, or if not, you can try updating, or even just reinstalling the current driver. Since you didn't list any hardware, I can't direct you to one, But Drivermax will find it for you.

Sound is not coming although sound driver is installed in vista ultimate

Driver may just be corrupt or you may have the mute checkbox toggled in your sound controls. Try both and post back. You can goto Start>Control Panel>Device Manager and use the options from there to update or roll back drivers over the net.

Error Toshiba display driver not working

Try rolling back your driver, if this solves the issue, go to microsoft update, run the 'custom' option...It should bring up an update for your Toshiba under the hardware section, click the little "+" sign beside the update and click the "don't show this update again" checkbox. This will prevent autoupdate from installing the "new and improved" version from Microsoft.
