Windows 7: Wrong Windows Version Installed - Help

17 Dec 2011   #41

Windows 7 Home Premium

I installed all drivers.. I got caught in the moment.. But everything's working fine.. It shows that no drivers are missing.
But in the list given by sony's website there's the "IntelGraphics Driver" and the "IPS Driver" that won't install because my pc doesn't meet the minimum requirements.
Did I do something really bad which I'm not aware of yet?

Your PC may not have that exact Display adapter or the Intelligent Power Sharing feature that services Intel i3 chipsets. Is there a driver by that name missing or which already had its driver?

You should have a newer Display driver arriving in optional Windows Updates, however. It is always better to use the drivers given in the Windows 7 installer and then quickly updated via optional Windows Updates first. The OEM driver selection is often incorrect or badly maintained so it's best to trust Windows 7 first and then only go to the OEM site to get missing drivers.

The softwares listed should also give you back some hotkey and other functionality if needed. But I would take my time installing those based on what you are missing as most are bloatware with better versions built into Windows 7.

I checked all the drivers.. They all seem to be installed.. There are no "!" or "?".. So I guess it's all good?
I just activated windows by phone call.. Problem solved?

Good news.

Would it not activate over the web? Normally does.

No it said something about the product key being wrong or something.. Does that matter if it's activated now?
EDIT: I just added to your reputation because you've been very helpful.. ^^

Not if it's activated. Just wanted to clarify if you'd tried web activation.
