Upgraded from Professional to Ultimate - Lost all Features



I upgraded my Lenovo thinkpad T400 from Windows 7 professional To windows 7 Ultimate.


I lost all the features, Do I need install them manually ? I tried to do so, but I am not able to see my "Volume Bar".


When I increase system sound using volume controls, its controlling the VLC  Media player sound.


Do this have any solution?


Please let me know if there is any solution with which I can switch back to Windows 7 Professional with all features loaded.

Re: Upgraded from Professional to Ultimate - Lost all Features

Hi pramodgarlapati,

In my view, upgrading is risky as things like what you have experienced are sure to happen, that's why I always do clean install.

To get your volume bar back you would need to install hotkey driver:-

I would make sure that I have Power Manager from lenovo before installing hotkey.

Hope it helps.
