silly perris, it's a marvell top dog ec85

I went to their site and they don't show any support for windows 7, I suppose it's in their beta program but that's not public

Download the Vista driver... if it refuses to install, right click on the installer file, properties, compatibility, set it to Vista.

Should install then.

Is this a gateway laptop? how old is it ?
ya, about a year old, three gig intel core2, 260 gig hardrive, not a bad piece of hardware

anyway, I did what both of you guys said, per johnny I went to the marvel site, downloaded the latest driver, they didn't have one for 7 so per bmc I forced the install, it's working perfectly without having to use compatability mode

thanx guys

Yeah... the installer is checking for the os and doesn't recognize 7... my wife's laptop did the same thing... the drivers themselves were fine, though.
