Is W7 incompatible with HP D7-1245dx? RRS feed

  • Question

  • W7 seems to be quite unstable on my HP D7-1245dx.  Specs:

    The startup sound I chose never plays, but if I check the "play windows starup sound" that works alone.  All of the other sounds seem to work well.  This is not a major bug, but it's a little irritating.  IE8 crashes often, but I've heard it does that frequently for others with different systems.  Some of the games I was able to play on Vista do not work on W7, which is odd.  For instance, my Hoyle Casino game will not allow me to use the "facemaker" feature.  It keeps asking to re-install the game. For some reason, W7 will not allow me to pin certain programs to the Quick Launch, though at the same time it accepts other (non-MS) programs with no problem.  I cannot find a way to disable the feature that snaps the window to full size when it's moved to certain places on the desktop; this is very annoying.  W7 will not allow me to change the sound/media associations, by graying out the checkbox.  When I run Registry Mechanic, it is unable to remove 7 errors in the registry, but I cannot determine where those are. I've had to reinstall the video, audio and touchpad drivers several times.  Why?  Because my entire system freezes up when using these things, sometimes.  This is all I can think of right now.
