HP Pavilion M9350f problems on W7

Hello to all,
I recently posted a problem relating to my pci-e wireless network card not being detectable at all by windows 7, while when i go back to vista, it works fine. This means I can't get internet for Windows 7, leaving it useless in many ways. Now I tried every single driver that's listed on HP's website (Select software and drivers*), and whenever I try to install any of these drivers, it always comes saying that my system does not meet minimum requirements. My system is great, (I'll post stats below), so I know it has to do something with the drivers not being capable with windows 7. I tried running all of them in capability mode (Vista, XP, so on), with no luck.

Does any one have any suggestions on how to get this Network Card: (Ralink Technology Corp Ralink Technology Corp pci-e network card) to work with windows seven? Maybe Im not using the right driver^^look at website above, so if Im not can someone lead me in the right direction?

Overview: My computer's running windows vista and windows 7(on another partition), does not pick up my pci-e network card while running windows 7. I tried the drivers from the website listed above that has all of the latest drivers for my system on windows 7 itself, with each one saying my system is not commpatible (9998) <<that must be error code. Tryed running them in capability mode, didn't work. They all worked on vista.
p.s. i tried driver wizard with no luck.

Chipset : nVidia nForce 720a
Processor : AMD Phenom X4 9850 @ 2500 MHz

Operating System : Windows (TM) Vista Home Premium Home Edition 6.00.6001 Service Pack 1 x64

So can anyone help me to get a Ralink pci-e network card to work on windows 7?

Thanks

At Ralink Technology: Windows I found a list of varying drivers for different products - you'll need to get some specific details in order to grab the right now, but based upon the HP drive version number, I am *guessing* that you have either the next to last one in the first table or the one immediately preceding it.

Some OEMs may lock the driver packages to the OS it was qualified on to avoid any potential bluescreens

You can go to the Microsoft Update Catalog and download the driver by entering the PNPID of the device. Make sure you download the correct driver (32 vs 64-bit). You can probably even load the Vista driver.

e.g.

USB\VID_XXXX&PID_XXXX
or
PCI\VEN_XXXX&DEV_XXXX&SUBYS_XXXXXXXX
or
PCI\VEN_XXXX&DEV_XXXX&SUBYS_XXXXXXXX

Or you can try Win 7 RC to see if it made it inbox.
