Vista most likely will not work correctly on your laptop if 7 was preinstalled. 7 is a newer version of Windows and if you just installed Vista on top of 7 you will run into issues. If you formatted your hard drive first and then put Vista on you may be ok, however Vista and 7 have different drivers that come preinstalled. Everything that your laptop needs to run with everything that it came with will be already installed, therefor if you put an earlier version on you will not have what you need to run the hardware on your computer, they won't "match up". I would reccommend that you do a system restore and go back to the 7 that was originally on the laptop. You may be able to find the drivers on the microsoft website, or compaq website. I doubt that it will work for long. Try it and see what happens and let me know if you need further assistance, hope this was helpful

My Laptop specifications are, ASUS F80Q, dual core, 3 gb ram, Windows 7 ultimate. when i first installed windows 7 (long time ago) it detected my bluetooth device, but now in the middle suddenly it...


Seems like your Bluetooth and Wifi settings are disabled from BIOS.
On laptops usually there is a setting in BIOS where you can disable/Enable Wifi+Bluetooth. Shutdown computer Turn on computer and press "F2" to go to BIOS settings Find settings for Wifi+Bluetooth and set it to default.
Save settings and restart computer You will be able to see your Bluetooth and Wifi.
Hope this works

Good mornning , i have dell d620 laptop (latitude) and i removed the original vista windows were on it when i bough it and installed windows 7 , i need to know is my laptop model match with window 7 or no...


All the vista drivers can be used for 7. By default, windows 7 installs all drivers except for touchpad.
You can find 32 bit version for it here
The 64 bit of Windows 7 64-bit ALPS touchpad driver from the Dell support site for a Latitude E6410 is reported to also work for D620. Give it a try.

HAVE UPGRADED TO WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM ON MY ACER 9301 LAPTOP. NOW MY BLUETOOTH AND ORBICAM DOES NOT WORK. CAN YOU PLEASE ASSIST.


I would check for windows 7 specific drivers for the bluetooth and the orbicam. Beyond that, I have heard and experienced problems with windows 7 not supporting all accessories and peripherals of laptops.

For instance, I had a basically unsolvable problem with the scroll keys on the touchpad not working after upgrading to windows 7 from Vista on an Aspire 3680 series laptop which was only a few years old.

I had to find a workaround for it, by using the arrow keys instead.

You might have to try workarounds for your problems, like getting a new external webcam for the webcam problem.

The bluetooth is a little bit harder to fix, though, because it's integrated into the computer, generally, like my touchpad.

Is there a bluetooth adaptor compatible with Windows 7


Hello

Here is a page you can find a lots of bluetooth solutions and they should have at least 1 that is working with windows 7 . We have a lot in sweden already.
I dont know wich computerstores you usally go to but you should even ask them.
Here is 1 other page in (sweden) but they should talk english with you if you not find anything .

http://www.kjell.com/

and they also have solutions for wifi with windows 7 so if should not be any problems. If its not that old computer write or call to dell they be able to help you to, with new drivers. The next link is to page checks your computer if its compatible to windows 7, because i was reading a little about your computer and maybe there is not any ready drivers yet. But if you dont find any drivers it should work with windows vista drivers.
Hope you have time too read my little letter.Pls come back if you have any more questions.

Good Luck and
Best Regards

Aser 5738 laptop bluetooth not working on widows 7


You will probably have to look on the net for a driver that is compatible with windows 7 for your bluetooth device. If you cant find one designed for windows 7 you could try a driver made for vista as many vista drivers work for windows 7 devices as well

Bluetooth not installing on WinXP


Hi,

I looks like Acer designed this Notebook for Windows Vista only.

Have you wiped Vista and installed XP instead? If so is there a particular reason, like an old piece of software not working with Vista?

I would be inclined to put Vista back on it. Vista is much better and safer than XP once you get used to it, Especially on a laptop.

If you really want to keep XP, try looking for an older Acer notebook with the same bluetooth adaptor that came with XP installed and see if the driver works from that, its a long shot though.
