Scott, good day! Help please right thing to do. My hands got a laptop HP Pavilion dv6-6b06er http://market.yandex.ru/model-spec.xml? ... &hid=91013
when buying where you installed the operating system Windows 7 Starter. Currently on a laptop stoitWindows 7 Ultimate, which in turn does not work well. Once there was a black screen at boot time. After the system recovery and virus scan Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free was removed a lot of threats (the AVG antivirus found nothing). Laptop was slow to load and off for a long time. Did not help and the recommendations http://answers.microsoft.com/ru-ru/wind ... edecdc9621
In addition, deleted partition recovery. I called the technical support HP, what they recommended me to contact the service center. Repairs will be paid.
Scott I have for you the following questions:
1 I have the presence of OEM disk with Windows 7 Starter, and the activation key is preserved on the back cover of the notebook. But I am confused, what is the support page http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/soft ... ct=5187273
There are no drivers chipset, USB 3.0. Will I have enough drivers from Windows Update and HP Support Assistant? I know in the books do you recommend in the first place to download drivers from the support site a laptop, as they are adapted for a specific model, and then download the updates from the Update Windows, but in this case what to do?
Once Windows is installed you will need to install drivers for any components that aren't recognized. If you can't get the drivers from HP then Windows Update may be able to find and install them automatically for you. Another alternative is to download them from the component manufacturer, although finding them can be difficult. I posted information on how to manually find drivers here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1308
Note that Windows 7 starter edition is a 32-bit OS and requires 32-bit drivers.
2 Another dilemma is this: on this laptop has 4 GB of DDR3, while the Windows 7 Starter does not support more than 2 gigabytes (GB) of RAM, there are other limitations. How to be in this situation? Does it make sense to install Windows 7 Starter? Or recommend to the owner to buy another version of Windows 7? This again is to pay money.
That depends on the needs of the user. In my case I would not be able to use Windows 7 Starter because the limitations and disabled components
are too restrictive for me (especially the reduced memory support, no support for multiple monitors, and the requirement for 32-bit drivers). However if the user can live within these restrictions then I would see no need to spend money on a 2nd Windows license for the system.
3 In organizations where a lot of computers, and thus a large amount of daily work, I saw that the technical staff at the time of reinstalling the operating system, Windows 7 is normally charged to the server as the finished image with the operating system, then install Microsoft Office, and then load all the updates from update Windows. I have repeatedly asked them questions about why they do not update the BIOS and do not download updated drivers from the manufacturer of motherboards, to which I received a reply that the Windows Update all drivers are already available. So right thing to do?
Windows Update for Windows 7 is a lot better at finding updated drivers
than that for previous versions. I do like to use the mfr. specific drivers for laptops, but in many cases using those supplied by Microsoft (who gets them from the device mfrs.) will be fine.
And the last. Scott, please see as waiting for your new books in Russia. This correspondence Russian publisher with your readers from Russia http://shtonda.blogspot.ru/2012/11/upgr ... eller.html
Thank you. Eugene.
