Your keyboard w7 driver can be found here just select applicable info and then download
This should install.
Software Download
The reason it wont install is probably because its a vista or earlier driver and would need to be installed in compatibility mode to get around the OS mismatch, so just download the above w7 driver and you should be ok.
