Windows 7: 'Merc Stealth' keyboard - software not working

I had problems with my Stealth when I was running Win7 for a while a few months ago. I spoke with someone at SteelSeries, and was told that they have Win7 specific drivers ready that do work, but they will not release them until Win7 is retail.

Merc Stealth issues

I have the identical problem you're having, but on my machine with Windows Vista 32-bit. And it worked FINE until I installed my new video card and fired up my machine for the first time in about 5 months. I updated Vista and now the Merc Stealth won't accept any changes to profiles. And most of the time there are no profiles listed in the tree. The "MOD" screen is just empty. Create new mod button does nothing. The system tray icon just reads "no device" as if the keyboard isn't plugged in. The keyboard will lose backlighting, (I'm assuming losing power?) and then comes back on and just repeats the keystroke that was being pressed when it shorted out. I've also upgraded my power supply with the new video card, and still no change in the keyboard (was desperately hoping not enough power to run the full keyboard). I'd LOVE to know if you found a solution. I've read other boards and have seen people suggesting older software instead of the new stuff from SteelSeries.com has worked for them, but I cannot find older versions. SteelSeries has been the EPITOME of unhelpful. In 10 days their only response has been instructions on uninstalling and reinstalling. Which, by the way, I noted as having BEEN DONE in my initial ticket. Thoroughly displeased with their customer service and support.
