Windows 7: Drivers dissapeared after Upgrade? (Ralink)

Drivers dissapeared after Upgrade? (Ralink)

Okay, I just upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit, and now I'm missing some of my drivers. The most important to me though is the `Ralink WLAN 802.11 b/b` driver, and I've done EVERYTHING I could think of to try to get it back. First I used Windows Update and it updated all 40+ updates successfully, EXCEPT the `Ralink USB Wireless 802.11 b/g Adaptor`, which for whatever odd reason Failed (And now when I check for updates/install again, I have no option to attempt re-installing it?) . Then I went to Ralinks website and downloaded every possible driver related to mines, and restarted multiple times, and still no luck (It's not even detected in the Device Manager either). Thing is, this is a HP computer and I still have that Recovery Partition with the Vista restore on it. Would it be possible to restore only the drivers out of that partition, or any other method I haven't tried yet?

Please help, this is driving me insane.

I see some Win 7 drivers, but am not sure of the model # of your wireless adapter. You can search here:
Ralink corp.

or let us know what the model # is (part #)

Thank you for helping Lemur, but I found the problem. Seems that a driver installed called "libusb-win32" was the source of the problem and affected every USB related thing on my computer. Uninstalling it fixed everything.
