Windows 7: PB thermal buttons

PB thermal buttons

Hey,

I have a Packard Bell notebook, which has these thermal buttons for enabling/disabling wifi and the touchpad.

However, after upgrading from vista to 7, the wifi button lights up when it's disabled (instead of when it's enabled) and the disabling of the touchpad fails to work now.

I checked the PB support site, but they don't offer drivers for this, also checked the recovery partition, but I was not able to find a driver for this.

Im sure that now that win 7 is out they will have drivers for it. In the mean time you an use the vista drivers. Just install them in compatibility mode

The problem is that my laptop didn't come with a driver disc.
And I don't know what to look for (name of the driver).
