    Today I received my new laptop which I immediately formatted (I hate the crapware on new systems) and installed my own copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. To my surprise, the wireless card and graphics card were not recognised. I downloaded the NVIDIA drivers using my wife's laptop then tried to install them. It threw up an error saying no compatible card found. I'm at a loss and am considering installing Linux.

    Has anyone else had similar problems after buying a new PC/laptop?

    You did go here for the NIC?

    Try here for the GPU (GeForce 315m?).

    Tried through Device Manager or Windows Update (wired connection)?

    Hi Seeker,
    Yes, with new laptop/pc you will face similar problem. Recently, when I purchased a HP G4 laptop and it came with win 7 home basic installed, like you I wanted to remove the crapware and install win 7 ultimate 64bit. So, I formatted the system and it did not detect my lan, wlan and graphics card. Luckily, I had already downloaded the drivers from HP's website.

    I think as new hardware and devices are coming out the pre-configured drivers in windows 7 are no longer working with new devices.

    Thanks,
    Ziaul
