Hp Pavilion Dv8000 Sound Problem

I recently upgraded to windows 7 and now i cannot get any sound out of my computer. I have a hp pavilion dv8000. I have uninstalled the driver and reinstalled, and it is still not working.
I have gone to hp's website to try and find an updated driver but they say they are not upgrading drivers for all their computers. I do not believe that mine is getting an upgraded audio driver. All other hardware components work fine. I am not sure what to do at this point. I believe the audio card is conexant ac

Hp Pavilion Tx1410 Laptop Drivers

Apparently hp has decided not to support windows 7 on a number of their newer laptops. I have a hp pavilion tx1410 laptop (approximately a year old and not one of my better purchases) for home use. Windows 7 will not load because of compatibility issues with the hp 1410 drivers (a pc built solely for the vista os). This seems to be my only un-fixable upgrade issue based on the "windows 7 upgrade advisor report. " Are there any options to get around this issue?  

The following is a link to hp support site stating the few laptops they plan to support with windows 7: http://h10025. Www1. Hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?Docname=c01892673&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3647228&lang=en

Hp Pavilion Notebook Upgrade Failure

I bought an hp pavilion notebook in august that came loaded with vista and with the promise to upgrade to windows 7 in october when it became available. In october i requested and received the upgrade disks in november. My life has been a long nightmare ever since.

When i performed the upgrade, the computer congratulated me and told me windows 7 was successfully installed. Then the computer froze with any application i tried. I called hp technical support and spent hours-no, days-on the phone with them trying every test and solution they asked for. Nothing made any difference.

Finally hp said i must have a bad installation disk and instructed me to go back to the company providing the upgrade disks and get a new set. Six weeks later, the new disks arrived. I installed them. Same result. Frozen computer. I again spent hours-no, days-on the phone with hp tech support trying every test and fix they suggested. No progress. Finally they agreed to take in the notebook and work on it.

Very fast turnaround. They got the computer back to me within ten days. They said they had "re-imaged the hard drive. " Hooray, it worked! Then i noticed that hp had reinstalled vista. They had the opportunity to send me back a computer, all fixed, with windows 7 up and running, and instead they set me back all the way to august 2009. Right where i started, and no windows 7. I reinstalled the windows 7 upgrade disks. Same negative result. Frozen computer.

Now i am in the middle of more hours-no, days-of phone conversations with hp tech support. They are putting me through the same diagnostic tests, reinstallation, driver installations, tedious time watching paint dry on my computer screen, with no indication that anything will change this time.

Am i a chump or what? Is anyone else experiencing the same problems. How do i get hp and/or microsoft to pony up and get me a computer and an operating system that works?

Hp Pavilion Dv 6670 Webcam Driver Problem

I have hp pavilion dv6670 el model. I also have downloaded and installed win7 rc operating system.
It's all so peachy, because i didn't have any trouble installing drivers, since win7 was kind enough to do that for me. But, now i have all drivers installed, and my webcam still doesn't work. Actually, i have no idea where to find place in win7 to turn it on (if there is such a place). Can i maybe install one of vista 64bit webcam drivers and utilities since architecture of two operating systems is pretty much similar? Where can i find webcam driver on hp.com site. Tried, but could not find exact match.

By having it all set up, i mean that the fan is running right now trying to find its drivers but it can't. My system doesn't even recognize that the card is there.

Audio / Sound Do Not Work On Hp Pavilion Dv8000

Recently i upgraded to windows 7. After the update my audio no longer worked. I have tried to update the audio driver both automatically, through windows, and manually from the manufacturer's website. I'm using an hp pavilion dv8000 cto notebook pc. Window's successfully detects the problem and tries to apply a fix, stating that there is a problem with the high definition devise. It continues, reinstalling the driver might fix this problem. It then fails to fix the problem. Through windows help and support i worked through each possible fix. Finally, i tried to download and reinstall the driver from hp's website, each version for each offered operating system.

A driver is not offered for window's 7, just vista, xp, and 2000. Each of the downloaded drivers came upon an error during installation and could not be loaded. The audio devise says under its general properties that this devise cannot start (code 10). No updates to the devise driver are available. Any idea how to get my sound working again?

After Win7 Install Should I Install Programs Then Backed Up Files ?

After windows 7 complete install. Should i install the programs then the backed up files or the backed up files then the programs. Windows 7 complete install. Should i install the programs then the backed up  files or the backed up files then the programs. I saw where microsoft recommended installing the backed up files first then the programs so the programs know where the files are located.

I would think installing the programs first would be better to minimize defragmentation. Os then programs, then files.

Where Do I Install My Programs To?

I am building a simple installer for some software that i want to install on some of the computers here at work. I'm using a very simple open source installation program, and it wants me to set the default installation directory where the software i have written should be installed. The computers at work are a mix of windows xp, vista and soon windows 7 computers. I have been installing to c:program files before, and that's been working fine.

But since vista came out, its been a bit unpredictable. I understand there is something to do with 'virtualization' of folders, which i don't really understand, and i also believe that this has all changed again with windows 7.

Is there some 'best practice' guide for where to install programs to?  The users who will be installing the software are just regular computer users (ie. Not administrators) and therefore i need a solution that works on all platforms and is safe and won't create security issues.

Cant Install Any New Programs

For some reason every time i go to install something new, ie quick time, java or itune, my computer is telling me i cant install something until i complete the installation currently in progress. The thing is, i have no idea what is in progress, and have had this problem for almost a month. I*ve restarted my computer and even done system restores to try and clear it up. I also cannot uninstall programs. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to pinpoint exactly where or what the installation may be. Or if there is something i can do to cancel all current installations.

Install Kb980182

I am running windows 7 enterprise 32bit. I had a user install update kb980182. After installing the update and rebooting, windows 7 display was off, not loading his profile. The following prompt was displayed: location is not available c:windowssystem32configsystemprofile desktop refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the internet of your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have moved to a different location.

This is a standard desktop pc with windows 7 installed on the local hard drive. I tried this on another windows 7 enterprise computer and received the same error. Is there a problem with this update? Is there a fix for this issue?

Cannot Install Hotfix

Hotfix pwd does not work to unzip the hotfix. I have requested 4 times and have tried manually and copy/paste. This is for the 64 bit patch. I can download and successfully unzip the x86 patch, but i don't need that one (just a sanity check). I can't respond to the email and i can't contact support because msft wants to charge for the support. I just want a password that works for the 64 bit hotfix or someone to contact. This is pretty ridiculous there is no qa around this.

Install Media

I've got 2 computers with windows 7 - a desktop that i have just done a clean install with a windows 7 home professional retail license, and a laptop that came with vista that i updated using the upgrade programme.
 
My issue is that the version of windows 7 i got for upgrading the laptop was 32 bit only (although it had 64bit vista and has 4gb of ram), so i was wondering if i would be able to do a clean reinstall on the laptop using the 64bit installation media from the retail copy of win 7, but using the key from the laptop upgrade package? Would like to get some idea if this would work before wiping the laptop, and help welcome!

Un-install Trouble

I tried installing an older version of palm desktop (win nt, 95) on a windows 7 system. The install worked, but i couldn't hotsync with the palm device. I later found a vista version i wanted to install, but it requires the older version to be uninstalled first. When i run the uninstall from within add/remove programs, the uninstall starts, but then stops with an error message (error number 0x80040702 - failed to load dll:palmdevc. ) The uninstall then terminates.

By the way, i searched the hard drive and the original installation disc for a dll file named palmdevc, and could not find it. Any ideas how i can uninstall this program?  Not only is it wasting some (minimal) disk space, but now every time, i boot up, it displays a message failure to hotsync, which is annoying.
Thanks from hdjeff

Cannot Install Wmp 11

I'm still on wmp 10 for some reason and i wanted to connect my pc with 360 to stream videos. I downloaded the update but it was telling me to go get the rollup update 2 or something, so i attempted to install that and it told me i needed to go get .net framework 1. 1 and .net framework 1. 1 sp1. I went to download those and install them, but it's telling me that "the upgrade patch cannot be installed by the windows installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program". I've googled it, tried all sorts, uninstalled sp3 and tried it and nothing.

Cannot Install Win7 From Xp

I am attempting to load windows 7 64 bit to do a clean install from optical drive boot. I have ascertained that the bios is set to boot from cd. My processor is intel core 2 duo e4500 which supports 64 bit. I currently have installed windows xp  which has been fully updated. On booting the pc the display shows that the files are being loaded in a strip at the bottom of the monitor.

However it then goes on to start to load windows and i only get the initial 'blue flowery pattern splash screen'. It then refuses to go on to the 'install now' frame. I get no error messages.

Cannot Install Updates

I have an hp pavilion slimline with windows 7. I am having trouble with windows installer. I am not in safe mode, i have administrative rights. The message says that windows installer is in safe mode or incorrectly installed. I cannot run certain updates and i cannot install itunes64 setup. The computer runs and works great except for the installer. I am unable to use or install windows cleanup utility, etc. Any suggestions or links to fix this problem?

I was on the phone with apple support for 2 hrs. To try to get working when i bought my iphone. They suggested several things and finally suggested contacting hp, which was a joke. I do not know where or who to contact at microsoft for help. I am not very savvy with computers.
