Unfortunately, some functionality can be lost in a laptop when upgrading to windows 7. I lost the ability to use the touchpad button for scrolling on my Acer laptop, but found a way around it by using the side scroll bars instead.

I was told that I had to wait for an updated driver to be released, but everything I tried outside of that didn't work for this driver device problem.

I checked the manufactuer, Acer, and also the touch pad manufacturer, and tried other drivers to no avail.

I suspect that you can use vista drivers in win7 but it's a **** shoot when upgrading an older computer. Sorry about that.

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite U505-S2940 laptop and I cannot get the built-in microphone to work so that I can use skype. Any suggestions?


Hi Kathy,

Go to the control panel, then sound. I don't have a vista machine in front of me right now, but there should be a tab for recording. Make sure it tis set to the microphone and not another device. Let me know if this works. If not, I can help further once I look at a vista machine.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Joe

My Acer Webcam Is Gone Ever Since I Installed Windows 7!?


As with all laptops parts are sourced from different manufacturers. Laptops had to be certified for WIN 7. Some ACERs laptop models are, but if the model wasnt certified for the WIN 7 platform they would not have developed a driver for your model. After checking ACER did NOT certify this unit as Windows 7 Compatibile due to driver incompatibilities. You can either downgrade to Windows Vista.. which will require a full reformat of drive (WIN 7 doesnt just uninstall) and reinstall from fresh VISTA.. so be sure and save your data. Or you can determine who makes the webcam in teh notebook and see if the manufacturer has a direct driver..OR FINALLY.. you could load the Vista driver and then go into the webcam software you use and right click and say run in "Windows vista" or "Windows XP" compatible mode. Be sure and keep looking at ACER to see if they state your system can go to Win 7 at a later date as sometime manufacturers will make drivers available which could change its status.

It sounds like a driver or hardware incompatability issue. Go to the Toshiba web site and see if they have updated Windows 7 drivers or other support for your system first.

Second, you may be able to get the mic to work using the Windows 7 compatability mode which mimics Windows XP.

Log onto the manufacturers site (laptop manufacturers site eg. sony ,toshiba,hp,compaq,dell,etc.)
