I don't remember having a problem wit the touch screen on the 390N. I don't use it much.

Does the touch screen work with the built in touch functionality of windows?

I don't have any extra UX's around to experiment on or I would go toy with it. XP is staying on my 490N for the foreseeable future. I need reliability and I have wasted too much time messing with alternate OS's

The new Windows 7 beta is much more reliable. It still has some features they will obviously add in. Still, when beta 2 comes out, your gonna try that out right? (I know I will)

I was able to get all the drivers installed with a clean Win 7 install, but the Gunze software would crash no matter what. Going to try a Vista-> Upgrade next, which should hopefully work.

Windows 7 problems

Postby 1768f9 » Fri Mar 19, 2010 05:06

I upgraded from windows XP to Windows 7. Windows 7 is working much better then XP ever did, but the magnifying buttons are not working as well as the two buttons under the right and left mouse buttons on the left side. I never had Windows Vista on this computer so I am trying to download the drivers off of the Sony eSupport site. Even after downloading vista drivers from the Sony site these buttons still do not work. Please help! Thank you. :(

Some things are cooler in Windows 7, it feels better than Vista. I know the benchmarks don't lie but I am getting hooked on some of the new features. I do see that Microsoft is "trying" to make a better OS. Server 2008 is really nice, and there are things on XP that just feel dated now that I have been using the newer OS.

For 64-bit drivers you'd have to ID each piece of hardware in Device Manager- then check each manufacturer's (Marvell, Intel, etc.) website -or the web. Some of the hardware is just too old or specialized to have enough of a demand for those drivers. Besides, 1GB of RAM really limits the usefulness of a 64-bit OS.
