    Please try to install the Hardware Device Driver using Compatibility Mode to solve the issue:
    1. Place the driver installation file on the Desktop.

    2. Right Click the driver installation file and select Properties/Compatibility Tab. Select the appropriate options.
        For Windows 7 I would suggest selecting Windows Vista SP2

    3. Click Apply/OK.

    4. Right Click the file and select the Run As Administrator option to install.

    You just answered your own question :) basically your trying to install either WinXP or Vista Drivers that are Not made for W7(Incompatible) so either use MS's drivers or wait till your Manufacture comes out with Drivers for W7.

    For ASUS Notebooks, that's a trouble shooting link for your ASUS Notebook's Driver Updates. I have seen the part mentioned on the ASUS site, as it applies to their computers. I'm guessing that other manufacturers like Lenovo, Toshiba, et al, will have similar trouble shooting sites but I cannot say for certain.
