    I'm using nVidia and it just upgraded. So I'm at a loss here. I tried get into the downloads on another computer and it went right in. I come back to my computer and nothing. That damn download page just refuses to load.

    If you attempted to copy and then paste the link on the other system that won't work. You first have to go through the home page onto the downloads section and then choosing the type of download whether chipset or graphics to move on through the rest of the selection process.

    From that point you can bookmark the page on that system. See if you can start off here at the selection page and go from there. Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

    If you can't load driver vista for windows 7, you can use DriverMax (Free, search by google) to backup driver from Windows Vista (Network, printer,Sound or Graphics cards...).Then set up windows 7 and restore driver.All is OK.

    Using DriverMax
    1, Download DriverMax - FREE driver download program for Windows XP & Vista .
    2, Export Driver (best way is export all driver to "X" folder of D:\ or E:\ (not OS installation disk)
    3, Install Windows 7
    4, Import Driver from "X".
    5, Wait and OK.

    Anybody got any solutions for getting Win7 RC to recognize a Linksys Wireless NiC WMP54G v4.0?
    There's not even an Unknown device to look for it just plain doesn't see it.
    Yet XP sees it fine and Win7 Beta saw it and hooked everything up wonderfully.
    I'm now at a loss as I miss the fluidity of gaming, internet, and applications that Win7 brought to the table.

    That falls into the catagory of "network adapter" when you look in the device manager. You'll likely see an item or two under "other devices" yellow marked there.

    hey guys, i'm a little confused over the 32bit/64bit driver side of things
    my laptop is in need of a reinstall and its specs are good enough to run win 7 x64 - however on the acer website for my laptop they only have x86 drivers - will these work on x64 os with 'normal speed' or just not work at all

    afaik 32bit software/drivers/ etc do install and work on 64bit systems however they do not make ful use of what 64bit os' have to offer

    there's also some apps i need for my laptop from the acer website but these are for x86 only too - i really want to go ahead and switch but don't want driver problems :-/

    thx guys!

    It's touchy! For certain things the 32bit drivers actually work well on the 64bit RC. But that may be simply from being a 3rd addon device seeing 32bit emulation playing a role. Video and sound drivers even input devices like optical mice still require the 64bit drivers as a general rule.

    :/ so i guess i won't be able to install the 64bit win7rc on my laptop - it's got the intel gm45 gfx card and i've read around how that is a bit fishy on drivers too - don't think it'd be worth the gamble. so in most cases you can only install 64bit drivers for a 64bit os?
    32bit won't install/work? - or is it a bit of both..in which case i'm screwed because i won't know what'll work until i try it haha

    If there are Vista 64bit drivers available you shouldn't have any large problem. But it also depends you are planning to replace or dual boot with an existing installation. If you have the drive space and are already running the 32bit RC then you could try the 64bit on a second primary to see how far you were able to go.

    That would be a quick temp install if things didn't work out. Even the 32bit RCs are temporary to start with until 7 is out.

    i'm planning on replacing my os on the laptop completely (vista) - and i can't seem to find any vista 64bit drivers. intel have a driver update utility where it scans your pc for the gfx card and gives you a download link - maybe that will work (and give me links to x86 and x64 it should be ok). main thing i need are the gfx drivers - i think audio is available (realtek hd audio driver)
    you'd think by now x64 bit drivers where widely available

    //edit - oh intel do have 64bit drivers , i can only find the drivers though - i need the program to calibrate and stuff too
