I need the make and the model of the laptop to link you to the download of the drivers for your model...
anyway the strange thing is that windows 7 is supposed to get the audio and video drivers right the way for any model least a adapted version ..

    about the AREO ..I supposed you meant the AERO for the desktop ...the feature that makes it transpaqrent ...this need to be enabled from the desktop properties...just right click on desktop ..and choose there you will have Themes and such for to be set..

    I have Lenovo Z60T Model No. 2513-A24. I think the video card does not support Aero.

    Can we upgrade the video graphics card.

    Also I have Creative WebCam Live! Ultra VF0070, nor HP laserjet 3030 MFD is also not detected by windows 7.

    Windows Live mail when opened on dektop & we minimize it in Windows Vista we had the facility to minimize it in System Tray (near clock) and hide on Taskbar, now we cannot hide it on Taskbar.

    Need correct drivers.

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    this is for the webcamera..but it is for vista ...usually the drivers for vista are compatible in windows7 it worth trying ..
    Just press agree on the bottom of the page and download..There is no driver on this model for windows7 yet ..
    Here you will find the drivers for the printer ..just select the operating system and download...there are available for windows 7 in all bit rate s..
    And here you will find all software and drivers for windows 7 in your model ...just select categories one by one ..and download them might need to select again the operation system ..Im not sure if it is evidential in the link ..but I did got to them and they are there ..

    Thanks for the links.........

    I got the HP printer to work........

    There is no Audio driver on the Lenovo page & audio is not yet working............... though if there is a battery down then there is alarm heard for low battery.

    Waiting for proper audio driver to make it work in windows........When I play an audio the display shows the volume going up & down but sound is not heard....... even attaching a headset does not help.

    Kindly guide.

    yeah ..I just checked ..and like I says that the audio driver is included in the operating system for windows vista and windows the issue must be from the settings ..see the icon in the task bar for volume ..if it is present ..try to double click on it ..and see if it is all volumes up ..including wave ..and so ...and another thing to verify ..not to be muted..for that is enough just to open the volume from that icon the task bar ..and see if the mute case is ticked ..
    if there is nothing wrong there ...go to the control panel and look for sound manager ..and open it ..and pay attention must be something from a mute case..or a wave volume on minimum ...
    To be sure that you have the driver installed already ..and it is a matter of settings right on My computer icon ...and than properties....hardware ..and go to device manager ...If the sound is listed and not highlighted with yellow sign ..and ask sign ..then this means that the driver is installed and working ..and you have a issue of volume ..
    the rest of the drivers you will need and not find in this list ...try the drivers for vista ..cause they usually match cause those 2 operating systems have the same base ..

    I had old drivers of Audio and installed them & now the audio is working fine. I seemed that Windows installed a different driver and because of that the audio did play but i looked for different speakers instead of the inbuilt. Now the Audio is working fine.

    I need help for Windows Live mail when opened on dektop & we minimize it, in Windows Vista we had the facility to minimize it in System Tray (near clock) and hide on Taskbar, now we cannot hide it on Taskbar. Even for certain applications like Blackberry Desktop Manager, it could be minimized to System Tray or notification area, now it stays both in notification area and taskbar as well. I just want it in notification area and not on taskbar. Even messengers are shown on taskbar. This clumsies the taskbar.

    Kindly give a solution for that.

How can i get travelmate 4021wmli driver for win 7

You will need to identify each device in the laptop that does not have a built in driver for Windows 7 (eg wireless card, ethernet, display, etc) and download a compatible driver from the device manufacturer (like intel or ati). Try running the Upgrade Advisor from the Windows 7 disk before upgrading to make sure everything will work out ok.

Let me know if you can't find a particular device driver. There is a program called DriverMax that can sometimes get drivers for your computer automatically after you install Windows if you have internet access.

Good Luck!

I upgraded my system from windows XP to windows 7 32 bit and sound card is not working


In regards to your sound not working in Windows 7 I can tell you that Windows 7 does handle audio differently then XP did. So you will need to go to the sound card manufactures web page to get the updated drivers for Windows 7. If it is intergated on the motherboard you will need to go to their site to get the audio driver. Note since Windows 7 just came out they may not have a driver yet. However in most cases the Windows Vista drivers would be the same so if the only have Windows Vista drivers you can try them.

Hope this helps
