The first thing we need to do is to check if some drivers, although they do not come with the Windows 7 DVD, may be online, for example on the Aspire 1692LMi both the infrared irDa port and the sound we have available if we give automatic driver search.

Depending on your computer, we will have to find available compatible drivers, usually those who are for Windows Vista will operate without problems in Windows 7.
