    thx alot dear.
    actually ,i m running xp now and i already have driver on cd but i think these driver for xp so can driver max find drivers after installing win7?
    I can't answer this question as I've always used manual installations of all my drivers for my system.
    I've never relied on a driver updating program of any kind as they don't usually get the drivers I need or want.

    Don't use your driver CD as those are not valid for Windows 7! You can use Vista drivers with no problem though & that is what I use on my system & they work quite well.
    The only drivers I use that a Windows 7 specific are the new Nvidia Windows 7 drivers which are made for this OS!

    If the driver is on an XP disk its not suitable for win 7, if its on an vista disk it is. If not the right driver do a google search for it and download the correct one for your system.

    Hope this helps ken

    Since you are running Windows 7 32bit OS, YES!
    Not only did installing the newest drivers using the -overall
    command line solve a bunch of problems for me, it also really
    improved the performance of my system!
    The chipset drivers alone increase my memory throughput by 1000mbs!

    Yea, this is a great forum for Windows 7 info!!!
    Enjoy your stay & learn tons more like I have about this new OS!
    thanks for the tips.

    i've installed both the chipset and audio... and i now have the headphone jacks working again. some changes in the options as well i guess.

    i also tried updating the drivers for lan but the vista drivers from intel didn't work... but there're drivers for win7 beta for both the chipset and lan. i checked the chipset version and publish dates and these were the same with the vista drivers so i didn't update it anylonger. the win7 beta lan drivers however were different and installed without a glitch.

    you mentioned something bout memory throughput?!? how would i test that?

    anyway... the headphone jacks are working, and the mic. so am good... real good.

    now am left with my just my problem with the wifi card.

    hmmm...

    still, thanks a mill. really appreciate it.

    Driver Agent? Driver Detective? Driver Whatever is a load of .... I don't blame you one bit for manually updating things as that usually proves itself to be the most reliable method! I've had a few problems right after Vista first came where the Windows updater would see Vista drivers installed on XP at the time! GGrrr... 'wats dis?!" Upon going to the manufacturer's support site they had a Vista update mixed with the ones for XP! when selecting XP as the OS.

    Yea Hawk I agree 100% about using any kind of driver updating program. A waste of money in my book & usually used by let's say those that are less that articulate when it comes to computers...

    Glad I was able to help you dude!
    What I use to test my memory throughput is SiSoftware Sandra Engineer XI SP4 which is an older version of this software & the test I use is Memory Bandwidth ( Benchmark the Memory Bandwidth) under the Benchmark tab. (Screenshots)

    I also like the way the new Intel HD Audio Control Panel looks!
    Yea, they got more options in there now which is good! :)
    It also sounds better!

    Stick around as there's a lot more to learn!
    Check out the Customizing Windows 7 & Media Center!
    You are gonna love what Media Browser does with it!
    Very, very cool plugin! (Screenshots)

    If you can't load driver vista for windows 7, you can use DriverMax (Free, search by google) to backup driver from Windows Vista (Network, printer,Sound or Graphics cards...).Then set up windows 7 and restore driver.All is OK.

    Using DriverMax
    1, Download DriverMax - FREE driver download program for Windows XP & Vista .
    2, Export Driver (best way is export all driver to "X" folder of D:\ or E:\ (not OS installation disk)
    3, Install Windows 7
    4, Import Driver from "X".
    5, Wait and OK.
    There is something wrong with this explanation. It is not that simple. As soon as Win 7 tries to install the Vista printer driver it states that I have the wrong OS and stops. What gives?

    OK, I'm here During installation, you'll be prompted to choose the partition to install to. Click advanced. Click load driver. Insert CD media with the required driver 32 and 64 bit and click next. Install should continue with the XP driver and allow you to update it when you get into 7.

    Oh, I forgot -- if you're using 64-bit you need to make sure the drivers are signed!
    How do I "sign" drivers in 64 bit? I go to Device Manager and it says my LBP 3000 USB printer is working properly, BUT when I right click on Properties, then I click on Driver it says that the driver has not been Digitally Signed.

    First off welcome to the sevenforums! The initial problems to solve when first connecting online in 7 are the basics like adode flash player, Java runtime, adobe reader still won't open pdf files here, plus your active x control settings in IE 8 may need to see a few changes from the defaults.
    Yes Night Hawk, I have 64 bit cause I use Adobe LightRoom 64 bit for my photo editing, and it flies under 7x64. IE was a disaster for my web work, with Flash not installing, but FireFox 3.5 saved the day, as it has all the bells and whistles already to go. Well done Mozilla.
