Hi:

 

If you installed W7 64 bit you should have no problems.  W7 32 bit will not work because there is no graphics driver.

 

Use all of the W7 x64 drivers and software from this model on yours.

 

Your model has the switchable graphics, so only use the AMD graphics driver which will install the drivers for both graphics adapters.

 

DO NOT USE ANY BIOS OR FIRMWARE DOWNLOADS FROM THIS LINK

If your model has the Ralink wireless card, use this Ralink bluetooth software and driver.
