Howdy all; I had to reduce my G551jm from Win8 to 7 because Win8 was throwing errors or crashing two pieces of software I use everyday and which work fine in Win7, compatibility mode did not solve it. I have full function on the laptop including wireless but today I was shown two errors, both of which I have no idea how to fix. I tried letting windows find the drivers but it could not, and Intel auto update also failed. Does anyone have any idea what type of driver I need for the below? Thanks for you help.

This is fixed now, all by my lonesome. After some time I found how to go into device manager, properties, details, hardware ID, copy one of the values and it was identified and I was able to get the driver, it is the realtek card reader.

I had it working but I found my computer ran slower with Win7 64bit so went back to 8.1 but purchased pro. Most of the drivers on the 551 page work on Win7.
