Hello,

Hello eveyone I have just loaeded my gateway MX6421 laptop with windows 7. As everyone. I have had nothing but trouble with my sounds drivers. I have tried everything that I can think of to get them back but nothing. Can anyone have any idea on how to fix this issue ? I can say that with windows 7 this thing is so fast I hate to put it back to Xp med. Any help would be great at this point.

Please I don't have much hair left lol.

Unfortunately there does not appear to be any Windows Vista or Windows 7 drivers available for that system. Either put XP back on, or buy a new laptop.

Hello Seatech2010,

It is always best to check with the software manufacturer FIRST. They will tell you if they have tested the product and the version, as well as whether or not it will work with Windows 7.
Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.)
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/de...
There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".
There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/default.aspx
In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!
As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.
Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.
