I want to know what driver i am installing before i start trying to install every one of them i expect that it is the Marvell 88E8053 GbE (PCI-E x1)?

Also on a side note my audio isnt working either when I plug anything in, I suppose its the same problem?

I just finished windows 7 yesterday and it could not see ethernet adaptor in device manager. Try to update your BIOS or reset COMS jumper while the computer is shut down. My ethernet adaptor was back and hence the internet.

What does device manager say? If DM can see your ethernet, then you don't need the Marvell GbE driver. Sounds like you use this computer on wireless, so you just need the wireless driver, whatever your USB wireless device is. Once you get online, you can run the Win7 updates and the rest of your drivers should be part of the update process.

btw, your drivers disappeared because you changed Windows versions! Like, if you had WinXP then Win7 can't use your old drivers because the old drivers are for WinXP, not Win7.

99.9999999999% of the time a BIOS update is NOT called for/needed when Windows comes up with missing drivers...that is a route of last resort.
