Check device manager and make sure the audio device is installed properly because with Vista not all device are compatible and you may need to download an update for your audio driver for Vista..

Hope that helps.....

Windows 7 ultimate upgrade from vista home premium on vaio laptop, now some programs and my cd-dvd-rw device won't function right, if at all. Also wan-miniport drivers installed themselves and I can't...

In regards to upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 the thing to look at is how long were you running Windows Vista before you did the upgrade.

Normally you would need to reinstall a few driver just because Windows 7 has a different kernel then Vista does but alot of times you are reinstalling the same drivers.

Normally when you are having the problems that you are having this is a sign that you had some problems in Windows before doing the upgrade. This is why in general when doing an upgrade it is good idea to do a full reinstall of the OS with your upgrade. Note with manfactured computers like your notebook what you should do is back your data then do a factory restore of your Windows Vista. After the restore you will have a clean base to do your upgrade on so Windows 7 should run fine.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

I have HP dv6701au laptop. previously it was loaded with Vista, but now i have installed XP. The problem is that i can't get the appropriate drivers for my laptop. i had already asked the same from HP...


Before downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP you should always confer with your computer's manufacturers website to look up your model and see if they support the downgrade. Often times the only way for you to downgrade is to have it done before receiving the computer, since a majority of the hardware on the laptop is made specifically for Vista and is not backwards compatible. Looking on the HP website, I see that they only offer a very limited number of Windows XP drivers for your system, which tells us that downgrading is not possible.
I would recommend that you consider not downgrading but rather upgrading to Windows 7 as it is a much more stable and functional OS than its predecessor Windows Vista. You can even run Windows 7 in Windows XP compatibility mode so you can enjoy the benefits and upgrade of Windows 7 but still have the Windows XP feel and functionality. I will be writing a How-To/Tip on Windows XP Compatibility mode today so you can be on the lookout for more information on that.

Still unable to locate the sound drivers for my vista system


When it comes to drivers, Windows Vista is still pretty new. Depending on your system, you may have minimal functionality. That's a big part of the reason my company never moved over to Vista...our next step will be Linux... Also, a lot of laptops come with proprietary versions of the operating system (be it Windows XP or Vista). Basically, that means the manufacturer "tweaked" the operating system to work the way it needs to with the machine. Sometimes, upgrading the operating system on a laptop can do more harm than help. Other times, it works just fine.

I think that you should read Panasonic's Web site. The best information should come from the manufacturer. I do know that you have a CF-51 but I don't know exactly which one so it's best you navigate through the site and select your exact model. You will find that Panasonic does not recommend operating Vista on these PCs. They also do not guarantee the operation of Windows Vista on Panasonic brand computer nor is Vista intended as user support for operating system compatibility (their exact words).

They do have some drivers available that will help fix certain issues that they have found while evaluating Vista on different Panasonic brand machines. If you search this site correctly you will find a wealth of information. It may turn out that you find what you need to get Vista working or, you may find that Vista is not the best operating system for your machine. Whatever the case, make sure you do what's best for the laptop ;)

Follow this link to find more support information and drivers for users running Vista on Panasonic brand machines http://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/cgi-bin/itn/toughbook/dl01.cgi.

When you come to the Download Center page, you will need to choose a category (choose Driver). Next, Select your model in the list (you will see there are a lot of different CF-51 models).
Choose your operating system (here, your only option is Windows Vista Upgrade and I'll tell you why shortly).
Choose language then click Search.

The only option for Vista is upgrade...they are providing this information/software for users prior to upgrading from XP to Vista. In cases like these (when the operating system is fairly new) it's best to do your homework first. You may find that there were some fine tuning adjustments that should have been made prior to installing Vista. Your best bet may even be to roll back to XP, install any recommended software/Hot Fixes before upgrading the install Vista.

Just wanted to give you a few thoughts to start rolling around and working with. Make sure you check that Web site and be sure to click the links in the box labeled File Description. There you will find a detailed explanation of how they expect Vista to work on these PCs and what the software will fix.

Hope this helps!

Toshiba


If you upgraded from XP to Vista and didn't exceed the minimum system requirements for Vista, then that is why your laptop is "struggling to work". You should have done a compatibility check before the upgrade to see what upgrades you might have needed to install Vista, such as RAM (usually adding the maximum amount of RAM that your MotherBoard will accept/recognize will get you going with Vista. Otherwise to get your laptop back to speed you can reinstall XP (XP runs on a lot less resources than Vista requires). You mention a graphics card, and I can't imagine one that would require you to upgrade to Vista yet, though I could be wrong.
Good Luck.

Upgrading windows xp to vista


You can upgrade from your current edition of Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 to a corresponding or better edition of Windows Vista by purchasing and installing an upgrade copy of Windows Vista.
While selecting the edition of Windows Vista that's right for you, it's important to clearly understand what hardware your PC will need to ensure the features you want will run reliably.

OS Upgrade Issue


Stick with XP. I bought a laptop that had Vista in it, and it runs and performs more faster with Win Xp Pro. It was slower and too confusing with Vista.
