    Does anyone know about where I can get windows 7 drivers for my NP5791? I looked on their site and it looks like there is only windows xp and vista drivers. I presume those don't work. Is there anything else I can do?

    Thank you.

    Which drivers are you looking for? Most of the drivers in my 5791 were updated through Win7 or I did a search on the manufacturers site for updated drivers.

    Like Shotthedeputy says, Windows 7 will find most of the drivers you need. For specific drives that Windows 7 cannot find automatically, you are safe using the NP5797 drivers on Sager's site.

    If there are any specific drivers you can't find, please let me know, and I'll see if I can find them for you.

    Thanks

    Another driver that my computer found missing:
    PCI FLASH memory

    I cant seem to find that on the sager site. Is it called something else?

    Hm, I installed and restarted but it still says that there is no device driver in my hardware properties for the PCI FLASH memory. There are two of them too.

    Windows 7 does have some issue with not automatically installing some drivers, instead of d/l driver from Sager, I just went to the device manager-> imaging devices-> USB 2.0 Webcam, and went to 'update driver' and then Win7 found and installed the driver and my webcam worked fine. I don't know from experience, but it should probably work for the Turbo Memory as well.

    If Hyperbolic's advice does not help, you may want to simply download and install all the drivers on Sager's NP5797 page (except the chipset, since the NP5797 uses the PM45 chipset and the NP5791 uses the PM965). It's more of a "buckshot" approach, but it should take care of your unknown devices :D

    Ok, I did your bucketshot approach and same thing... no PCI drivers.

    As for bison cam, it installed but even if I press fn+f10 to turn it on, the bison software or other softwares wont recognize it...

    All I can think of then would be to try to manually identify each device.

    Right-click on each device in Device Manger, go to properties, go to the details tab, use the pull-down menu to select Hardware IDs, and post the IDs for each device. We'll see if we can get the devices identified using their hardware IDs

    Okay, its attached.

    I also emailed sager, this is what they said: "Our researching department still work closely with the Manufacturer trying to get any driver for Windows 7, and so far those drivers you mention about are not ready yet. "

    So I guess although they DO have drivers on their website for the bison cam and PCI, and they mark them as windows 7 drivers, they do not work.

    It's possible that there are slight differences in the models used between the NP5791 and the NP5797. The two devices are your ExpressCard reader and the Memory Card reader. If you try to install the cardreader driver from Sager's site, does it give any error message?

    We'll have to wait until Sager/Clevo complete those drivers then, I guess.If the 5797 drivers don't wor, I'm not aware of another option at present :(.

    That's weird, everything in my 5793 runs great under Win7, of course I did the update checker before installing, which had me uninstall several drivers that it said would cause conflicts (off the top of my head I remember wifi adapter and memory card reader). When I installed Win7, it fixed everything up just fine (except for the WebCam, which I got no warning about, but is good now) Eleison must be right about the model variation issue.

    That is strange. I've got a 5791 and the Bison cam and Intel Robson are working. I do remember that I had to do a little driver hunting for the Robson, but I don't quite remember what i did. hmm... 14Robson_W7M57TU?
    -edit-
    Bison Driver ver. is 6.64.0.2 and Intel Turbo Memory is ver. 1.10.0.1012 if that helps at all.
