Attached is a screenshot.
My specs are almost the same as yours, and I've run the W 7 x64 for more than 6 months. Never met any problem caused by the hardware (or drivers).

1. Bios version 2801、2901、and 3001 all are OK for our mobo, I updated the bios only for fun. If you decide to update the bios, please visit here.

2. I had tried at least 15 versions of the Nvidia Graphic drivers from 18x.xx to 191.66. With modded inf, most of them ran well. My source is from the LaptopVideo2Go.

There are 3 yellow marks in your device manager shown on your sceenshot, why?

Anything to do with your DVD reading function? Or, does your W 7 DVD get hurt?

Why not try to re-install, and check the device manager right after the installation? I believe you will find the problem you yourself.

Good luck to you, and I will follow this thread to accompany you.
