    Problems connecting to internet in W7


    Hello to all,
    I recently posted a problem relating to my pci-e wireless network card not being detectable at all by windows 7, while when i go back to vista, it works fine. This means I can't get internet for Windows 7, leaving it useless in many ways. Now I tried every single driver that's listed on HP's website (Select software and drivers*), and whenever I try to install any of these drivers, it always comes saying that my system does not meet minimum requirements. My system is great, (I'll post stats below), so I know it has to do something with the drivers not being capable with windows 7. I tried running all of them in capability mode (Vista, XP, so on), with no luck.

    Does any one have any suggestions on how to get this Network Card: (Ralink Technology Corp Ralink Technology Corp pci-e network card) to work with windows seven? Maybe Im not using the right driver^^look at website above, so if Im not can someone lead me in the right direction?

    Overview: My computer's running windows vista and windows 7(on another partition), does not pick up my pci-e network card while running windows 7. I tried the drivers from the website listed above that has all of the latest drivers for my system on windows 7 itself, with each one saying my system is not commpatible (9998) <<that must be error code. Tryed running them in capability mode, didn't work. They all worked on vista.
    p.s. i tried driver wizard with no luck.

    System Specs:
    Mainboard : PEGATRON CORPORATION VIOLA
    Chipset : nVidia nForce 720a
    Processor : AMD Phenom X4 9850 @ 2500 MHz
    Physical Memory : 6144 MB
    Video Card : NVIDIA Geforce 9800 GT
    Hard Disk : NVIDIA (750 GB)
    DVD-Rom Drive : HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH10L SCSI CdRom Device
    DVD-Rom Drive : SJWJ QNGTMVKHIV SCSI CdRom Device
    Monitor Type : SONY SDM-HS94P - 19 inches

    Operating System : Windows (TM) Vista Home Premium Home Edition 6.00.6001 Service Pack 1 x64

    Have you got the model number of the problem card? I can do a search if you give me the number. :)

    Some OEMs may lock the driver packages to the OS it was qualified on to avoid any potential bluescreens

    You can go to the Microsoft Update Catalog and download the driver by entering the PNPID of the device. Make sure you download the correct driver (32 vs 64-bit). You can probably even load the Vista driver.

    e.g.

    USB\VID_XXXX&PID_XXXX
    or
    PCI\VEN_XXXX&DEV_XXXX&SUBYS_XXXXXXXX
    or
    PCI\VEN_XXXX&DEV_XXXX&SUBYS_XXXXXXXX

    Or you can try Win 7 RC to see if it made it inbox.
