Solved!

Pavilion tx2000z clean install windows 7

HP Recommended

Hi,

 

I had just upgraded my tablet PC from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional so I had to do a clean install. Everything else seems to be fine but here are a few things I'm having a hard time finding answers to:

 

-the screen won't auto rotate, i already updated the drivers for ATI Radeon 3200 (graphics card). If i do it manually through the settings of the graphics it rotates.

 

-the preloaded programs that came with the laptop are now gone- youcam through cyberlink etc.. i was wondering where i can redownload those again? i went to the manufacturers website and they want me to purchase them! they came free on my laptop!

 

Any tips and link that you guys can extend is appreciated!!! 

 

Thank you,,

Here is a link to the software download page.  It has the extra software you are looking for.

I pre-ordered Windows 7 and will install it after it comes.  I would like to know more about how well it works on this laptop.

 

I feel like Vista is just dog slow and simple things like opening firefox and watching online flash just eat up all of its power.  

When I bought it I got the fastest processor and upgraded the ram to 4 GB running the 64bit version but it still runs really slow.  I can't even watch Hulu without it jerking.  I turn off the side bar and any other programs and Hulu eats up all of the processor power.

Hi,

1. Graphic card:

Uninstall Your current driver and install latest driver from Ati site. There is now 9.9 Catalyst version avaible for Win7. All informations gow to install it below:

 

Download desktop drivers (Catalyst Software Suite) from here and click on Motherboard/Integrated Video Drivers and then on Full Catalyst Software Suite for Your system.

 

2. Cyberlink YouCam Version: 2.0.2816 here

 

3. You may run Windows Update to get drivers. As i remember there is Wacom Digitizer driver for Win7 avaible. 😉

Hi,

 

Thank you for the info.

 

I liked Windows 7 way better than Vista. The programs loads/opens faster and the system starts quicker. I love how they actually and finally used "aero" to manage the personalization of your computer. Also, the main thing i noticed is the sensitivity of the screen, since my laptop is a tablet. It seems to respond better on windows 7. I'm majoring in IST and i got the version for free at my school. I think you'll like it better. Its more organized and looks better. I really haven't had trouble running movies on this laptop- i mean i guess thats going to depend on your internet connection. I have a wireless network at my house.

I had ordered Windows 7 professional in July when it was offered for pre order.  I received that software last week today I was finally able to take the time today to upgrade my vista.  First problem vista home premium cannot be upgraded to Windows 7 professional most disappointing.  Regardless of using the two options offered by DVD the message was the same, You must have Vista Business to upgrade to Windows 7 professional to expensive.  Called Microsoft Store to return the product they understood and are in the process of issuing a return merchandise order to I may send it back they offered an exchanged but I do not wish to upgrade to Windows 7 Home.  Will have to live with the poor performance of Vista.

Did you run the Window 7 compatibility tool? You cannot do an upgrade from Vista Home to Window 7 Professional. You will have to do a clean install. Thats what i did on mine and it works fine.You just have to update your drivers after that and you should be set.

I never heard of this because i actually talked to one of the Hp rep and he was telling me i still have a few months left on my MANUFACTURER'S warranty. I called in regards of upgrading to Windows 7 so if ever he should have mentioned something about it. Maybe they dont offer support yet coz the operating system is too new??

Hello,,

 

I got everything, well mostly everything on my laptop working but i was just wondering how i can fix the hot keys on the monitor? And also, the remote only turns off my pc now, it doesnt go directly to the media center like it use to do when i press the windows button. Do i have to reconfigure that?? If so, how??

 

Thanks,,,
