DC7700P drivers PCI Serial Port and PCI Simple Communications Controller

I'm trying to find the right Windows 7 (32 bit) drivers for the DC7700P Convertible Minitower

 

Can anyone tell me if Window 7  64 bit runs on this systeem ?

 

Chipset is the INTEL Q965 Express

Hi, Lucas:

 

Try these 2 Windows Vista Business 32 Bit drivers and see if those unknown devices get installed:

 

Chipset:  Install first and reboot.

Intel Host Embedded Controller Interface (HECI) Driver:

The Windows 7 64 Bit OS should work fine on a dc7700, but you may have more difficulty getting drivers for that. Also, you need to make sure your peripherals (printers, scanners, etc) are also 64 bit capable.

 

If you decide to move to the W7 64 bit OS, for missing drivers on the 64 Bit OS, try the Vista Business 64 Bit drivers. The link to those is below:

You may want to run the Windows 7 upgrade advisor to check everything.  The link for that is below:

Hi Paul,

 

Today I tried to install the Vista drivers but this doesn't work at all.

 

If you have a look at this link, you will see no Win7 chipset drivers ?

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=nl&prodNameId=3232101&...

 

I have tried almost everything today to get this issue solved but I failed

 

Do you have any other idée ?

 

Regards

 

Lucas

Hi, Lucas:

 

Sorry those didn't work. Yes, I noticed that yesterday that there was no W7 chipset driver for the dc7700.

 

You can try this chipset driver from Intel:  Latest for all OS:

I am thinking that the missing device is the TPM security module, and there are no W7 or Vista drivers for that either.

 

Do you have a modem installed in that PC? If so that might be the PCI simple communications controller. If you do, here is the driver for that:

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=nl&prodTypeId=12...

 

But I am thinking it is the TPM security module driver that is not installing for some reason. If there are no drivers for it for Vista or W7, that normally means the driver is included with the OS.

 

You could take a chance and install the XP TPM driver for it here:
