Installed Win 7 over an old Intel 865GBF main board (Intel Extreme on board graphics controller with shared mem). Getting the graphics drivers to work is so frustrating!!
Everything works fine except:
It installs the standard VGA driver by default -- which doesn't allow my LCD/TV to go full res (1680x1050). Also, no updates for the same.
If I install the Intel drivers from the website, (in XP compatibility mode) they work fine, except keep hanging whenever there is any video playing (WMP / Flash / etc) and generally Windows 7 becomes crashy/hangy. There are no drivers for the 865 mobo from Intel (only support till winXP).
I use the Dell Computer Gx270 and my graphic card intel 82865g. i installed this driver in windows 7 this driver work properly but this not support to windows dvd maker. when i click on windows dvd maker error is video card is not supported please help me how slove this problem.
See, I have a AM3+ motherboard, and currently a FX 6200 clocked at 4.2GHz, thing is, I feel when I try to play say BF3 on a 32 man server, My pc run's smooth, yet come to a 64 man server, My PC feels sluggish and well fails. Now I know Its going to effect my FPS and CPU usage with what settings in game am I running, well Ultra I don't use I mainly use a mix of medium and high, to Me its all about performance before eye candy, but BF3 seems to have no performance boost the lower I turn the settings down, I mean with one card I get 98-99% usage but in SLI I get 50% on each card with v sync disabled and on ultra I have even tried with settings on low and enabling v sync, lol that is just worse! I have been told the higher the settings, the higher the usage, and my cpu seems to be lagging behind.I know there is things to take into consideration like the Ram, Graphics, Hard drives, Lag ect, But I'm running two GTX 480's, 2 Velociraptor Hdd, 16GB Corsair Dominator Ram, a Corsair HX 1050w psu and Windows 8.Come January I'm planning a upgrade, but what My dilemma is should I move to Intel has I feel my issue is a major bottleneck with the 480's and my CPU, I don't want to buy a 200 cpu (8350) and a few months down the line have to invest in a Intel because the Pile driver has failed like the Bulldozer did! Or just upgrade to a Intel i5 or i7, I mainly game but do video work as well, even considering getting a i7 2600k or 2700k,
I use Help and support frequently. Finding the answer to a problem is one thing, finding it a second time is another. When you're dealing with web pages it's easy to find what you've found a second time. You just copy the URL and paste it somewhere so it can be clicked on in the future, but not so with Help and support.
The only way I know of to find a particular page again is to write down my steps (like in a word processor) and then retrace them. Just wondering if I'm missing something or if there is an easier way?
Tonight I will be configuring a newly-purchased Sony VPCCW290X with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.Almost by accident, I have read/discovered that Windows 7 allegedly either doesn't work with WEP, or doesn't work well with WEP.Our home router is a Netgear WGR614 v9 (802.11g).The reason that we "have" to use WEP is that there is an old Mac laptop on the home network, running OS 9.2 (yes, this is OLD!) that does not support WPA. That is, OS 9.2 does not support WPA, and there is no hardware or patch available making it support WPA.So I've read dozens of threads in these forums about Windows 7 and WEP or WPA, and they just seem to be arguments over whether Windows 7 does or does not support WEP. All I want is a definitive set of instructions of how to get THAT computer to connect to our home network, using WEP.url...is a link to the specific computer, if that matters.I'd imagine that Windows 7 is "backwards compatible" enough to support WEP; I just want to get this new computer onto our home network.
I own a HP HDX-18 Notebook (it has 4GB RAM), and I installed Windows 7 (64 bit) not too long ago. The laptop was being problematic giving me a blue screen of death with a 'Power_Driver_State_Failure' message, so I figured it could be problems with driver compatibility. I formatted the hard drive again, and installed a 32bit version of windows 7.
When I right click and go to 'My Computer', it only acknowledges that 3gb out the 4gb ram is being used. Why is this? Is Windows 7 incapable of supporting up to 4gb ram? Do you guys think I'm better restoring the laptop to factory settings (Vista Home Premium) with the recovery CD?
I have an asus p5ld2 motherboard with the realtek audio chipset, gameport, etc. I play several games that utilize a controller plugged into the gameport connector ( 1 of them is an old racing controller from a realrace 2 rc car racing sym) and I am inquiring/wondering if microsoft is or will support such a port or controller arraingement.
I see no controller listed as anything in the device listing, nor an unknown port, etc.
[The following are not the problems i faced on Windows XP]. I've connected my PC via HDMI 1.3!
I installed Windows 7 x64 in my PC. The real big problems i'm facing is with Nvidia.
1. First thing scaling didn't work i tried to fix it but no hopes. Good my monitor had built in scaling.
2. 59hz monitor refresh rate is another pain. My display works perfect in 60.001hz @ 1920x1200 resolution but it still resets to 59hz. Nvidia in there latest driver has informed that its the problem with Windows 7 OS. And microsoft says there is no theartical difference from 59hz and 60hz. Well there is huge difference especially when your play movies via DXVA in Media player classic home cinema where you your full colour range and shaders which causes some kind of boxing and not artifacts! Everything was proper in Windows Xp
3. Finally i don't about other but i've noticed massive difference in colour depth which is set to 32-bit but its showing only 24-bit colours which can easily be noticed in movies and games like Crysis. HDMI 1.2 supports upto 24-bit colour. But PC or PS3 has HDMI 1.3 which support 32-bit same as DVI connection. My monitor has upto 48-bit colour depth so the difference in colours while in 24-bit can be easily noticed.
Seriosuly is this a design flaw or enabling these would cause different problems. If any one has got a solution for this i would be happy to hear!
I downloaded the WMPTagSupportExtender.1.4.msi file and it installs fine, but when I use WMP, it doesn't seem to do anything. I hear that using this allows WMP to play .flac files along with the Win7Codecs, but nothing's happening. Am I supposed to enable something? If so, how do I do it?
Back in the XP days...the Home version didn't let you use Remote Desktop Connection to log into your work/home computer. Windows 7 site isn't exactly clear when comparing all versions of 7....can you use RDC on ANY version of 7, including the basic Home Premium version? Their comparison between all 3 doesn't mention RDC.
I am planning to purchase a new computer system which will have Windows 7 (which I am not familiar with) installed on it.
On Microsoft's page comparing the different versions of Windows 7, one of the differences it check marks for Windows 7 Ultimate is "Work in the language of your choice and switch between any of 35 languages". This is not checked for Windows 7 Professional. Does this mean that to have full Hebrew support (as in all versions of Windows XP including Home) one must get "Ultimate" or is that only for some sort of additional language support? Doesn't Windows 7 Home Premium include the same kind of Hebrew support that XP Home does which would be adequate?
If no one is familiar with this, could someone running Windows 7 Home Premium go to the wherever the language/keyboard options are and see if one can select other languages & keyboards, particularly Hebrew?
2) Can I use windows 64 bit with 4 modules of ddr3?
3) Can windows 7 64 bit configure 32 bit memory channels?
4) Can I expect windows 7 64 bit to configure 128 bit width memory on dual channels 4 modules, or 256 bit width on dual channel 4 modules? (32 bit x 4 ddr3 modules)
5) Do I need to get a windows 7 64 bit + 32 bit OS package to use both 32 bit and 64 bit width memory configure?
7) Can windows run in 64 bit mode while use 32 bit architecture?
8) Can windows 7 64 bit be restricted to 32 bit when needed? or will I need a package that has suport for both 32 bit and 64 bit?
I'm asking because most all games I check on play with 32 bit os and only need 64 bit for DX11 graphics. I think one OS that can run both 32 and 64 bit with a click or switch users could be what I am looking for.
Windows 7 came with no A2DP support and MS asked bluetooth hardware manufacturer to add this feature in driver upgrade. All bluetooth hardware on laptop where most of the time we need A2DP are made by Broadcomm (widcomm software), Toshiba or CSR. The last 2 manufacturer seem to have A2DP in Vista which should work in W7 but for Broadcomm nothing around.
Basic question: Does Windows 7 have built in drivers for NIC cards? I am trying to install Win 7 to a barebones Shuttle K45 system. Win 7 installs seamlessly, but cannot connect to the internet. NIC card light is flashing but no driver. When I try to load drivers from the CD that came with the MB, it complains that it does not know the Win 7 OS so no drivers are installed.
Without internet access I can not send MS feedback or get updates.
I installed XP, but Win 7 will not do an upgrade to XP. XP works fine. Installed Vista Ultimate and it works fine, NIC and hardware is all OK with these two OS systems. It is just a problem with getting driver into WIN 7 that will allow a Generic Marvell Yukon Chipset based Ethernet Controller to communicate with Router.
Any ideas on how I can proceed so I can test Win 7 on this new machine?
This PC should be good to upgrade but what are the exact manufactures parts that are used so I can get a list of drivers that work. I have looked at the dell driver page but it is not what I needed because it wont tell you who the manufacture is. I tried calling them but since this is not a question that can be answered but a flash card that was a waist of an hour.
I am running RAID 0 now and I want to know what driver I should use. I am almost sure that it is a nVidia driver. I don't know.
Also can I change my BIOS out from the one that is installed?
Looks like Microsoft listened, because with the new 7048 Build they have windows drivers for nforce 3 chipsets, particularly the networking controller that we havent had support for. So glad they were able to get us a driver! Not sure if nvidia had anything to do with it since it was not off their site, it just recognized it and installed automatically.
So to anyone else that has avoided the beta, or is using a PCI Network card, now you can pull it out and use the native driver with the 7048 build.
I have an HP Z800 with Dual W5580's and 48GB of memory. As many of you know, you can enable the "Hyperthreading" to get 16 virtual cores.
Does anyone know if Win 7 will see all of these cores? If not does anyone know of a Vista or Win 7 hack that will allow the full use of all the cores?
For those that care, this machine is part of a larger distributed farm that runs traffic simulation software. Benchmarks on equivalent DL160G6 w/Server 2003 R2 have shown worthwhile improvement in runtimes with "hyperthreading" enabled, so we are inclined to have it enabled on the Z800. The workstation does not support a Win Server install (several attempts have failed) and so we are limited to XP 64, Vista 64 and Windows 7.
