That's funny, My IQ506t and IQ846 work simply fine on Windows 7 with the updates Win7 TS apps. I know, nothing ruins a good rant better then facts..
If your Touchsmart PC came with Vista, good luck EVER getting it to work with Windows 7.
I have been battling with HP for 2 weeks on this topic only to be told that the Windows 7 drivers online and MADE for
my Touchsmart PC (Model IQ526) are courtesy drivers. Basically they do not support them nor will they updated them.
The site CLEARLY tells you that the system support Windows 7, provide the drivers but then tell you "your crap out
of luck"..What a pathetic company.I SO regret I ever bought this system. I have problems with the Video Card,
Touchscreen and capture card. And HP support is TOTALLY useless.
I will NEVER EVER buy another HP product again or recommend it to anyone.

Please please repost the zip files as I am having a hella time trying to fix various blue screen flashes, device errors etc on my touchsmart 600-1365qd w/ 1.5T memory. I upgraded from win7 64bit premium embedded to Win7 Ultimate. Now, I have 2 os and only 4 of my processors working. Inexplicably, one of the os is win server 2008 and the other Vista?? I'm not getting any help Hp, The IT remotely accessed my computer to "help" me and this is what I'm left with. I would really, really appreciate if you could have those files available again.
Tech-savvy, but NOT IT, home user..

I have a HP Touchsmart 600pc and I installed windows 7 ultimate 64bit on my pc and I did not work it the touchsmart.
I changed my hard disk drive because it had a problem.
How can I get back the touchsmart software and drivers?

First thing is to do is go to computer then in computer click on Sytem Poperties . When the next window open go to the very bottom You will see Porduct ID. I want you to write down those numbers. This is your Windows 7 Ultimate product key. We will need it after we do a full recovery from your orginal recovery discs. If you did not make a set you can order a set from HP. You haven't posted your computer's complete information. I have extra sets for HP Touchsmart 600-1050 computer. I can mail out to you free of charge. HP sent me seveal sets when they all failed because Motherboard System Files became corrupted and they kept sending me more of them eventually they replaced the motherboard witch was the cause of the Recovery Discs not working.
I could send you links for your drivers and software to try downloading them but your computer might reject them. I do not have computer's information anyway. So we will continue on.
Ounce you get your recovery discs turn on your computer and tap f-11 key then select factory restore. Next window. Select Factory Restore by CD. Insert Recovery Disc 1. Then follow all Recoveries commands. Ounce your computer has completed restore. You need to let both Windows update completely and same with HP's Support Assistant Updates. This process takes 48 hours to complete if you leave your computer running that long but you need to be there with it some updates will require rebooting. You want all the updates to be installed before we up grade to Windows 7 Ultimate . Your computer will run very sluggish even more so then when you first bought it. Ounce it is updated it will be back to normal speed.
While windows is updating go ahead and down load adobe reader and flash player and Real Player becare full not to include the software add ons like google tool bars or google crome un check those boxes. You can install your software again.
Now updates are all installed now we goto all programs list. In the top portion you will see a folder called Windows Up Grade Any Time. Open it It will ask you how would like to upgrade? Choose the product key method. Next window enter your product key. The number you wrote down. Press enter now it will download Windows 7 Ultimate with out messing up HP's software or drivers. Ounce the Windows 7 Ultimate is completed then open up Windows updater click check for updates Windows 7 Ultimate updates takes three days to complete. What I did I changed my computers power settings to never turn off display Dim the display to never and put computer to sleep while the computer is running and installing these large amount of updates. You can go to Microsoft and down load Windows XP mode Windows XP Virtual Window. If you haven't used it before it is like XP Windows and you can install XP software in this window as long the software is compatible to the 3d graphic card. Do not worry wizard will display a message if it isn't compatible. Post your computer's complete information if you want to try downloading the HP softare with drvers. Example mine are HP Touchsmart 600-1050 Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and HP Pavilion dv7t-7000 CTO Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. You are welcome frrw.
