So... I successfully installed windows 7, and it runs much faster than xp. this is the problem though: the computer i installed 7 on is an hp pavilionzd7000, and there are buttons at the front next to the screen. one of the buttons is to fully enable the wireless connections, and when using windows 7, i am unable to fully enable the wireless by pressing the button. normally, it lights up when it is enabled, but when running windows 7, the button is black, and not lit up. the laptop is designed for xp, but i want to know if i will be able to enable the internet on my laptop. thanks for any and all help.
