Windows 7: A few devices not recognized

A few devices not recognized

I installed W7 RC with no issues, but it then fails to identify many of the devices on my machine. It doesn't find the Belkin PCI G Wifi adapter despite the fact I separately installed the latest driver, it just doesn't see the card at all. It doesn't find the sound card either.

When I try to go and find for new devices through the control panel, nothing comes up.

Any idea ?

Thanks in advance

PS : everything works fine on Vista, all the devices are recognized correctly, seems to be specific to W7

Have you tried installing the Vista drivers using compatibility mode?
