I recently bought a used laptop (Gateway MT6707-2 gigs-Intel T2060-Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit).The OS is activated and authenticated so it does not seem to be pirated. There is no Media Center anywhere to be found. I've searched the net and MS knowledge base and the only thing I've found is that versions for Europe and Asia don't have Media Center installed, it's an add on. I've downloaded the file to add Media Center to those versions but when I go to install it, it says it's not compatible with my version of Windows 7.I've searched everywhere on the HD, looked in services to make sure that everything is checked in there. There is no mention of it even existing. If I try to run Windows Experience Rating I get an error message that says "Cannot complete the requested assessment. This system does not have the necessary multi-media support to run the requested assessment" I can't access desktop gadgets and probably a myriad of other neat Windows 7 stuff. The computer came without a disk and originally had a version of Vista installed from Gateway. I do have Windows Media Player but that's it. Anybody have any ideas on this?
