what is this?

I just upgrade from vista to Windows 7 and...

A)Upgrading Windows will affect the following devices and/or programs:

  • These devices might not work properly after the upgrade. Before upgrading, we recommend updating the drivers for these devices. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel and search for "update device drivers", or go to the device manufacturer's website to search for updated drivers.
    • Storage controllers: AXX8WX1V IDE Controller

Welcome to SevenForums!

The storage controller is how the system communicates with your IDE devices.

Go into Control Panel>Sound>Sounds and make sure the box is checked.

You still have the controller, whether you use it or not. So relax! Nothing bad will happen!

Try running the Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, see if it tells you the same thing.
Let us know what it says, if there're any other issues.
It will only take 5 minutes to download and run.

On the taskbar, you will see a little arrow just to the left of your last taskbar item. Click this, and click Customize. That will answer your questions.
