I am missing 2 Base System Device Drivers after changing OS from Vista to Windows 7 Ultimate. I have reason to believe one of them may be needed for the pre-installed Altec Lansing speakers which are not seen in Device Manager, even when attempting to see hidden or uninstalled devices. When I attempt to update the drivers for these mystery devices I get the response that " The best driver for the device is currently installed" though properties shows that there is no driver installed. I am also unable to copy or paste, on both the desktop and internet. I don't know if this is in any way related, just another issue I'm having. I re-installed Vista but went back to Windows 7 for its ease of use. I should note that even with Vista I still was missing these drivers.

I tried HP's site and their product detection tool to no avail, and HP offers no drivers for Windows 7 for my computer model. I tried re-installing drivers for Vista which are available on HP's site and nothing has worked..

External speakers definitely do not need any drivers, even if they were supplied with your system. It's what the speakers plug into (the sound card) that needs a driver.

If Compaq have no Windows 7 drivers for your F750US, you will never get everything working properly with Windows 7 on it. HP/Compaq laptops and PCs require custom-made drivers which are only available from HP/Compaq -- you cannot get them from anywhere else.

You should have checked the driver situation at Compaq's website before upgrading the OS.

Thank you, I appreciate your reply. Yes, HP does note on their site that for several models there is not yet support for Windows 7, and funny enough, they suggest outsourcing the issue for resolution. I guess i didn't make it clear that the same drivers were missing when I was running Vista originally, when I upgraded, then downgraded, thru to my current upgrade. I have to believe that there is some fix for this issue, whether I keep Windows 7 or go back once again to Vista and I will hold out hope for a solution. Thanks again.

I have figured out what base system devices were without and gotten all the drivers, yet am receiving error code 10 when installing the conextant high definition smart audio driver with message that device cannot start. without regard to what I should have done, do you have a suggestion as to what I might do?
