Is it possible to put windows 7 on the pavilion dv9408nr ????
I ran microsofts compatibility software and only issue was itunes andQuick launch buttons.
Removed both of these and then laptop wouldnt recognize my cd/dvd player.
Laptop did not see the player. It didnt come up when u clicked on computer.
So i reinstalled quick launch buttons from hp and did a recovery of the cd/dvd player
from my hard drive. Then i restored to a restore point prior to eliminating Quick launch buttons.
Laptop is now back to normal and functioning ok.
Will i be able to install windows 7 on this and if so what do i do to make it go smoothly.

You can uninstall both the software which are not compatible with Windows 7. Post upgrade you can install both of them.
You can install the Quick Launch Windows 7 Compatible software from the following weblink:
iTunes compatible with Windows 7 is downloadable from the following weblink:
If the optical drive is not working after uninstalling iTunes, follow the steps available in section "aring upper and lower registry filters" of the following weblink:

Thanks soooo much.
Am printing off your answer and will try this.
Have been on the phone with both HP and Microsoft.
Microsoft offered me a refund cause i purchased the family pack
and HP just said they couldnt help unless i paid $99 for extended warranty.
Geez all this just to update.
I do appreciate the input - felt like i was beating my head against a wall today.
