I am a full time student at KVCC. Because I am taking Computer Information System classes I am able to download Window 7 Professional 64bit for free. My problem is when I did the upgrade I was unable to access my HP Media Smart software (Music, Video, Webcam, Pandora, etc..). When I touch the quick play button nothing happen, and when I check the program list I don't have an HP folder. The only two options I have is to upgrade to Widows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Ultimate I don't want to pay for the upgrade. Can anyone help me out ?
CherylG is right you have to go to HP Site(hp.com) type in your model number in support and drivers, click on vista 64 which ever you had look for Driver » HP Quick Launch Buttons, Driver - Keyboard, Mouse and Input Devices, » HP Quick Launch Buttons, Software - Multimedia » HP Media Smart Software Web Update » Cyberlink YouCam Software (If you had Youcam). And download any other driver if needed. Just download those and you should have Quickplay. I also got Windows 7 Professional from School too and cleaned installed it on my hp dv4, When I installed those drivers I had the quick launch working with the quickplay button openining Quickplay or for you the HP Media Smart Software. Don't forget some drivers will be named different. Just look for Media Smart and Quick Launch buttons, Hope this helps or just reply back if you've got more questions.
I'm also in the same situation, downloading it from school, etc. My computer has pre-installed software for things like my lightscribe disk drive and roxio. Will I be able to recover such things from HP after I install windows 7 professional?
I downloaded Win7Pro as well onto my G60. It went smooth and I was able to boot up the .exe files from the Vista partition without much problem. I was able to get the chipset from nvidia but found that I was having trouble with video card. HP support that I just need to wait til the 22d, I guess
