    May you guys enlighten me on what to install on HP 520 after installing windows 7.

    i installed hp quick launch buttons coz something appears on my device manager.

    but there is always annoying message in my start up.

    is there an hp quick launch buttons driver that is compatible with windows 7?

    and again after installing some apps and drivers it brought me to a test mode message in the lower right part
    of my desktop.

    Hi Bonghernz,
    windows update is always a good place to start if your really stumped but I would suggest trying you laptop makers website and look for vista drivers (I very much doubt any 7 drivers will be available yet).
    Also what appears in the device manager?
    Lastly what is the annoying message on start up?

    You can search for drivers here; HP Hong Kong - Software & Driver Downloads

    the annoying message says "do you want to start hp quick launch buttons",
    there's an option to run or to quit or something else.

    does this has something to do with the test mode issue?

    im using vista drivers of course

    What do you normally do? Quit it or run it through? If you've got all the drivers you need why not just un-install it?

    ok sir i now perform a clean install..

    but again unknown device appeared on my device manager and seems quick launch buttons software will remove this unknown device..

    i will not install quick launch buttons for now.
    til i found a driver on this unknown device without the quick launch buttons software/driver


    thanks again sir.
