Windows 7 on Esprimo V5535

Postby JohnWB » Thu Mar 22, 2012 13:41

I have been considering putting Windows 7 onto my Esprimo V5535 but was worried about drivers

Does anyone know how easy this is and are all the drivers built in or do i need to find any.

Does the machine work ok with Windows 7 and 2g of ram

Download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to see if the drivers can be found and which drivers are missing:

There is only a Graphic driver available on the driver website.

We has been running Windows 8.1 with no problem for one year, so windows 7 is also no problem. At the moment we are testing Windows 10 on this old Esprimo Mobile V5535 and there are no problem at all with drivers or any other program except for Bank ID which do not work.
All drivers for cannon printers and HP printers are working even with Windows 10.

There can be issues with the audio driver.. i tried the few versions of vista drivers available (as there are no win7 ones) and put up with crackly audio that was so bad on some movies and youtubes it made it impossible to use so eventually i installed a good version of xp pro sp3 and installed the correct xp drivers and now the laptop is considerably faster and audio is perfect. SIS drivers work better also. All round I much prefer xp on this laptop. win 7 is no different, a little slower and looks a bit flasher but theres no advantages. 8.1 is annoying so back to good old xp!
