    loudersoft - I can't say for sure but since your SD host adapter is installed - the two Base System Devices may be for your other two memory card formats; eg Sony MS and XD card/etc. Sorry for what sounds like a dumb question - did you try Windows Update? Update has installed every device on every WIN 7 install I have tried it on (ASUS G50, Dell XPS 1530 and H-P dv4t). I saw in another post that Toshiba has started posting WIN 7 drivers on their support site - and just confirmed that the A505 series does show up in the Beta drivers list. This URL will get you to the WIN 7 area on their site: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/navShell.jsp?cf=Windows7

    Have you tried Windows Update?... That's the first thing to do once you've finished installing Windows 7 RC. It gets correct drivers for your PC... well, that is what it did for me :p

    Well i received it today and its awesome so far :D

    Even with the bloatware on this laptop its super fast i loaded COD4 and GTAIV on here COD4 ran perfectly at maxed settings with AA off and GTAIV ran good also at meduim settings with 1024x768 resloution but you can lower it a bit if you want and the laptop cool itself very well while playing COD4 and GTAIV the temp of both cores didnt even go to 70C and a another feature i like is the eco mode on battery (power saver) with that on the laptop almost reached to 3 hours. It is very good laptop for only $750 at best buy and its awesome deal with its specs I will do a clean install sometime next week if im not busy :D

    I just ran 3DMarks 06 and got a score of 4031 3DMarks with stock ATI drivers very good for a 64-bit card :D

    I've run it and it found drivers for some things; however, there are still those dangling Base System Devices.

    I'm really confused.

    Bluetooth stack?
    HDD protection?
    Camera?
    Wireless LAN driver?

    It could be any of these but I was under the impression that this machine doesn't have bluetooth. The camera shows up as "USB 2.0 Camera", Win7 auto-installed what (I think?) are the wireless lan drivers, and I have the Intel HDD package installed.

    i get around 4000 3DMarks 06 with a Asus running a gs9500....
    you should be getting a much better score with the ATI HD 4570...
