Hello Aaron,

When you say older version, do you mean say without SP1 included, or ???

If you like, you could check at the link below to get the latest SP1 U (media refresh) ISO file version for your edition.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You could do a factory recovery to go back to default, but be sure to back up anything that you do not want to lose first though since everything will be wiped. I'm not sure what the procedure is for your model though since I can't make heads or tails with the language.

However, I would give the driver a try to see to avoid a factory recovery over this though.

There is no such thing as an older Windows 7

What exactly does it say the Windows Version and Service pack is on your install DVD that you used ?
