    Hi there,



    It seems that you need the windows 7 drivers for your sound system (or motherboard chipset drivers). Please tell me what model your laptop is.



    Thanks.

Hello,

It seems that you haven't installed the drivers for your computer yet. After the installation of operating system, there's a need for you install the drivers enable for it to work fine.

What you need to do right now is to install the disc that came with your computer. It's labeled "Drivers and Utilities". Insert it in the dvd tray and it should play by itself. Just follow the on-screen instructions and let it finish the installation process.

If you don't have the Driver's and Utilities disc with you. Just go to the website of your computer's manufacturer. Go to the support and services or the download page in the site.

For now, I can't exactly provide you with the exact site where you can download it because I need to know the brand name of your computer. If you need my help in finding the drivers for your computer, just leave a comment to this post and leave the brand and number of your computer.

Thank you for using fixya.

Hello, Welcome to fixya.com

what you got here is a system without sound drivers if it was formatted. your best bet is to check witch manufacture of laptop you got example (Dell,HP)

1. Go to there site directly example www.dell.com under support.
2. Type in your model number
3. download the sound driver for your system.

If you give me the model number and make of laptop I could post a link to your driver for you.


I hope this was helpful for you, please update me with your make and model of laptop so I can be more specific on witch driver you will need.

Thanks for using fixya.com

It sounds like you don't have drivers for your sound.
Try these steps.
Right click my computer, select manage, under device manager you should see sound devices, see if there is anything listed under that if not see if there are any unidentified devices (usually have a yellow question mark by them). If you have an unidentified device it is more than likely your sound. Try installing drivers by selecting properties on the device and searching online. If that doesn't work post back with the make of your laptop.

How to uninstall windows 10 and install windows 7


win 10 is an os so you may need to reformat the hard drive to get it out
you will need a disc to reboot the computer and instal win 7
If you are not real sure on how to do it , first save everything you have on an external hard drive/gig stick as reformatting the hard drive deletes everything or have a computer technician do it for you
As a side note, I have been playing with the idea of upgrading to win 10 from win 7 but was hesitant to do so because of all win 10 problems appearing on this page and in a conversation with a computer technician and programmer he explained that all the problems come from the up grade process-- something like a conflict appears between the two operating systems trying to operate on the same base codes
He said that if the win 7 was removed and win 10 installed complete from the disc there are no conflict problems and the operating system works well
I suspect that you are having problems with the win 10 after the upgrade and not from a full installation so it may be worth your while to speak with a tech expert to get good advice before you run the risk of loosing all data

Windows xp startup problem


You may need to "wipe" or reformat your entire C drive to be able to install Windows program again. I would suggest installing WIN7 program as WIN XP is at its end of life cycle for that operating system and Microsoft may not support it any longer.

If possible try installing WIN7 once again, and if requested to reformat or do an entire install, choose YES.

WIN 7 should then reformat your C drive, erase everything that is on it and then install as WIN7 program.

Be sure you have your program license key to install WIN7.

Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

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.

32bit vista to 64bit win7


your recovery manager files should be on drive D or other partition. if not then its gone. but the operating system cd that goes with your laptop is still better than the factory default anyway but the thing is, youll need the cd everytime you want to reformat.

if i where you, il go for 32bit win 7 since your computer used to be a 32 bit vista. no worries about making the most out of your computer since win 7 eats less than vista anyway. and go for 32 bit since your laptop is made for 32 bit.
