Windows 7: problems with HP with Windows 7

problems with HP with Windows 7

I am having 2 problems with the new Windows 7 beta version

1. I have had the OS (Windows7) for 2 weeks - all has been good till today where the laptop is not acting slower 9about 1-2 seconds) and not running smoothly either. I have a HP Pavillion 6690.

2. The buttons for the volume on the Quikplay above the keyboard for volume do not seem to be working properly either....

If anyone can help - please email let me know !
Thanks
Michael

Hello smlourie,

Have you added or changed anything before this happened?

thanks for answering - no I have not added anything - it just happened - and I am not sure why at all ---- as all worked beforehand quite well.
Another issue I had was when I tried to connect the laptop the TV and I only heard sound.....

Did the quickplay buttons ever work with 7? You may have to install extra drivers/software to get those buttons to work..

Has the computer been on this whole time or have you already tried simply restarting it?

I assume they did (the mute button works)
I have rebooted it the laptop many times and even done a disk scan !
I see that sometimes the laptop works fine - then all of sudden its not smooth and jagged edge if you know what I mean !
Where can i get these drivers ?

Id bet its a program thats slowing you down (If you haven't changed any windows 7 settings)

Don't assume anything when using a beta operating system. You never know what will work and what won't. The only way to know is to try.

Drivers should be avilable from hp: Product search results

I don't know exactly which model you have. You'll want to try the Vista drivers for quick launch buttons.. if you have Windows 7 64-bit, youll want the Vista 64-bit drivers. If you have Windows 7 32-bit, youll want the Vista 32-bit drivers.

32-bit = x86
64-bit = x64

Also, do the buttons work in Vista/XP?

That could just be lag time with the Beta.
