Windows 7: Are drivers available?

Are drivers available?

I recently acquired an HP nc6400 laptop, and I'm in love with it. It has Windows XP currently.
Its specs are as follows:
Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz
ATi X1300 Mobility 512MB
2GB RAM

I was wondering if I'd be able to get my sound drivers, graphics drivers, and everything required to run Windows 7 properly, without any hiccups; so far everything looks okay, but I'm unsure about my sound drivers..all I know is that it is "SoundMAX." Thanks for any help.

Hi sidd and welcome to sevenforums

You can get most of your drivers here HP Compaq nc6400 Notebook PC*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center I would have specifics for you but dont know if you are 32bit or 64.

Let us know if you need help with any of this

Thanks for the quick response. I checked the HP site, and I didn't see anything Windows 7 related. Do you think they'll still work, or should I just wait until after Windows 7 releases?

And keep in mind you can always install Vista drivers for the moment.They should work just fine.

Many of the Windows 7 drivers are the same as the Vista Drivers. Be sure to check the date and version to be sure you need it.

There is a very nice HCL for Windows 7, you might check there to see what MS says about your (acquired) system.
Also the Manufacture Website usually has very nice FAQ's and Downloads for their products.
You might chek with them.

Hi, I have a pretty much identical NC6400 (possible slightly faster cpu) and Windows installed fine but once up and running it is unstable on reboots. I have had to reimage 5 times and still having issues. I thought it was an update causing problems but it doesnt look to be that as I disabled them. I can't figure out what is causing the problem. System restore doesn't fix it and there's nothing consistent with when it happens.

Does your NC6400 work ok with 7? If so which version? I am using 32bit pro.

Thanks!
