ANybody running windows 7 on their 18 yet. If so I need a fix if possible. 7 makes my tablet run alot smoother. Programs open faster and boot up speeds up too. My only problem is that my hotkey driver is incompatible and of course I cant use them and adjust my screen brightness at all

I have a CF-18NJ Toughbook. I recently upgraded to Windows 7. Everything works much better and faster than XP. My big problem is that I do not have any sound. I believe I have a Realtec AC 97 Audio Sound card. I have installed all versions of the driver with no luck. I would appreciate any help with this problem. My second problem is that I do not have any use of my touch screen like I did with XP. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated on how I can get sound and the touch screen to work. Thanks!!

No, he meant 19. Alot of 18 users are finding luck using the 19 vista for some reason. Perhaps they are the same, or just more compatible. Not sure, but it was mentioned.

I put Win7 RC1 on my 18mk2.
As Doobi mentioned, I used mostly CF-19 Vista drivers.
However, I was never able to get the front panel hotkeys working, so I wen't back to XP

I tried sound drivers from cf-18 vista upgrade and cf-19 vista upgrade. Still cannot get my sound. I am happy to say that everything else works including my hotkeys and touchscreen. I guess I have to do without sound for a while until I can figure this out.
