Blazing fast, great screen, but I noticed that it runs hot and then fan was slow to start. All times are GMT Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post. OK, I opened up the back to make sure the wireless card was still in there, and guess what, LOL, it is there but was not plugged in all the way, so no it looks like it is seeing the wireless card but I still can’t connect Are you new to LinuxQuestions. And what did I think my chances were of finding a notebook that fit exactly what I wanted?

Installing a Microsoft Wireless system on a 7422GX

The keyboard is probably my biggest beef with the whole notebook. I find the quality of their support well beyond what I could have expected, because I actually read my warranty and have experienced situations where they have gone beyond what they should have done for me. I almost forgot it also features 1GB of system memory, so upgrading is pretty much pointless, not to mention a 74222gx of money 7422gs is a plus for you.

Quite an expensive way to make a rock garden. Alienware 17 and M17x. Is it enabled in the BIOS. And the drivers from their website that they swear up and down are the right ones for the machine work except the wireldss chipset driver completly wrong chipsetthe modem and soundcard drivers do not work either. Other than that, the keyboard works great. I burn’t a disc using one that wouldn’t load before. Are you new to LinuxQuestions. I mean, don’t just assume that a problem is going to fix itself.

Only because it doesn’t come with much software. It takes longer to eject the disc with the Roxio software, but the disc should now be readable by other machines than a PC. To make 7422g long story short I finally got a supervisor on the line who I could level with. I called HP before I ever went back to get this machine and HP’s tech support told me that if I have an issues with drives when I install XP pro that they will be more than happy to help me find and install the right drivers.

As for it’s Radeon I don’t know what to say about that. I had called up about the recovery discs, and I explained to the tech that I deleted the partition and formatted the drive. I was beyond angry that I had missed out on this deal, and I continuously checked BestBuy. Was up and running on the notebook in not time at all. Jake, there are several reviews on this product.

Blazing fast, great screen, but I noticed that it runs hot and then fan was slow to start. When I returned the Gateway notebook to Best Buy they offered to have their tech see if they can find and install the right drivers, but after being told rudely by tech support that apparently knows next to nothing about hardware I told them that if that is the level of support I can expect I would rather not have the notebook.


I insisted they send it in for repairs. When you as a customer start screwing around with your software then if something goes wrong it is YOU that is at fault. They won’t help you if your a jerk, jerk. I am not sure about the recovery 74222gx or backup recovery disk.

I have recomended this laptop to all my friends, If you 7422tx having problems finding drivers for this laptop feel free to contact me.
