Dell Dimension 5000 and Windows 7
I've upgraded this machine from XP to 7 Home Premium. I've got a couple of problems to be resolved and if someone could help me I would be grateful. I suspect these are driver problems - I tried to resolve them myself as the Dell website is not of any help with this machine and Windows7; that clearly got me onto some dubious sites as I had to do a malware clear out after that unsuccessful visit!!
1 - No audio: Control Panel says 'No audio device installed'
2 - No Google Earth - I suspect that this is the same problem as running some of the games. It would seem that the video accelerator is not switched on - the games warn me of this and although in general they work, they are slow. Google Earth wanted DirectX but that made no difference and then when I tried OpenGL I was told that it needed '3D accelerated and Shading'; as it worked OK on XP, it would seem the hardware is OK.
Thanks for any help and apologies if this has been covered before - Search didn't come up with anything.
