    I made the mistake of not checking to see if the motherboard that I was giving to my parents supported Windows 7. I bought 2 additional 1-Gig DDR memory modules and gave them a Soyo mb that I had lying around that had an AMD Sempron 2400+ processor. After they had been using the system with the minor problems of no onboard sound (I just thought this was do to the fact that Soyo had gone belly up and that's why I couldn't find Windows 7 drivers) and the USB front panel header didn't work -- the Windows 7 32 bit version installed just fine -- they had a power surge which fried the mb. So now I'm stuck with 2 gigs of DDR memory, an AMD Sempron 2400+ processor, and a full copy of Windows 7. When I started looking around for socket A / 462 mb's that supported Windows 7, I was very surprised (although I guess I shouldn't have been -- PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE) to find that there were no Windows 7 drivers for the main manufacturers (Asus, Gigabyte, ASRock, etc.). So the Big Question: Now that I'm stuck with this hardware, does any motherboard manufacturer make a socket A/ 462 MB that uses DDR memory (not DDR2 or DDR3) and supports / have drivers for Windows 7? Another possible solution would be if anyone that is using a socket a / 462 mb from a major mfg and has DDR memory has successfully upgraded to Windows 7. If so, what mb are you using? Thanks GF!:mad:

    The system drivers are installed with windows and the audio drivers
    can be downloaded from the realtek website.
