Hello,

Not good news. HP only has drivers for XP on their website. See HP a305w Support

First thing I would do is to run your Windows 7 Update program.

If that doesn't work, I would try to run the Driver Doctor scan at:

http://www.pcdriverdoctor.com/

There is no charge for the scan but to download and install the drivers, there is a charge.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

With most keyboards they cannot be adapted for USB if it is a PS2 type. It is possible to have a keyboard for very low in cost. I would suggest getting a USB keyboard.

With Windows 7, many of the older keyboards will not work. I have some old type high end Windows Keytronick type boards. These go back to before 2002. They will not work with Windows 7.

2. To Format USB Flash Drive Go to My Computer -> Right click on USB drive and select Format from context menu.
3. Now go to Start Menu->run->cmd (Open Command Prompt) and Type following command

mbrwiz /list (note down disk number of your USB Pen drive)
mbrwiz /disk=X /active=X (X is Disk Number of your USB Drive)
exit
6. Now open another command window and type following command
J: (Drive letter of Windows 7 iso mounted with demon tool)
CD boot
bootsect /nt60 Y: (Y is drive latter of your USB drive )

Dell 1420 the twoon touch pad don't respond and the usb ports don't respond so i cannot connect a mouse neither can use the touch pad buttons I am dead on the water help!


LOL, didn't you know windows 7 was just a tad bit better than vista? Why do you think microsoft will be coming out with windows 8 in the coming months by the fall of this year. They keep trying to get it right.

Go to Dell's site and see if there are Window's 7 drivers for your model. If not, try downloading and installing the Windows Vista drivers. Right now, you might not have a driver or a good driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers and the Chipset (which has the usb ports).

I don't think so you have described properly your problem.

1. USB cable to Casing its completely a USB Device/Drive so where you plugged it?
2. "The Laptop does not see the drive or the USB adapter when its plugged in" you mean BIOS?
3. Windows 7 Pop Up Autoplay window what opens when you try to open it?

I installed Windows 7 on my computer and since the installation my MX700 has refused to respond


You need an updated driver that works with Windows 7. Go to the following link, click "Software & Drivers", then select "Windows 7" from the drop down menu. You will want to install the first item on the list for networked printing, or the second item if you don't need networked printing.
