Re: Windows 7 drivers for Latitude D630

If Windows installed a driver for a device, you are usually ok using that driver, but there are times when Windows thinks everything is fine, but the device just doesn't work - or doesn't work properly.  For example, Windows 7 on an Optiplex 330 installs and Device Manager shows everything is fine, but when you try to use sound/audio, it says it is turned off and can't be turned on.  Since the sound device on that system is not supported on Windows 7, it is necessary to load a Vista driver for that device.  If a device is not playing nicely, then Intel is probably the best place to get the driver ... occasionally mfg drivers are tweaked by the OEM for compatibility, so if you experience issues with the Intel driver, you might look for a Vistax64 driver.
