I just installed Windows 7 Home Premium (32 bit) on an older Compaq Presario V3020. Everything went awesomely! However, I am having issues with 2 of my devices and I'm assuming they are driver related.
1. Windows Action Center is reporting that I need to "download and install a missing driver for my memory card/memory card reader." Fine, it linked me directly to HP for a direct download of the driver. I downloaded it and the install appeared to be successful. However, the next time I reboot the machine, Action Center reports I need to install the driver again.
The device is a Ricoh SD-MS/Pro-MMC-XD card reader.
2. I am not getting any sound from the headphone jack. All sound is coming through the built in speakers only...even with the headphones plugged in, sound is still coming through the built in speakers. In other words, the sound doesn't even mute with the jack plugged in but, I still get sound from the built ins.
The device is a Microsoft High Definition Audio Device.
I went to HP's web site for drivers but it reports that Vista was the last supported OS for my machine. There weren't any drivers available that addressed my issues anyways.
Anyone here know how I can get this stuff working? I guess if I had to prioritize, the sound issues would be #1. Let me know if I can provide any other info. Thanks in advance.
