    Hmm... you could try installing the original drivers in compatibility mode? Right click on the driver, choose properties and then configure the compatibility settings for windows 7.

    Apologies, I see you had already mentioned you'd tried compatibility mode.. Tell me, what exactly is an accelerometer? Is it like a turbo mode or something?

    Also what about checking forums dedicated to either your machine or manufacturer? It might be worth a try?

    an accelerometer sensor is basically a g-sensor
    like in the new smartphones allow to rotate screen according with the position
    the manufacturer is ST Microelecrtonics
    but not provide drivers, product sensor then buy to dell, toshiba etc
    the driver i found for windows 7 does not work :(

    Unfortunately with the os being so new issues like this can arise. Can you live without it until such time a driver is available?

    Solved:
    For those who have same problem
    You have to refresh pc (new Windows 8 function)
    Then install FIRST old windows 7 video drivers
    After
    restart the machine and install the other micro St detection driver for windows 7
    Both driver in windows 7 compatibility
    Hope this can help someone... I see there is a lot of people have troubles with St accelerometer driver and windows 8
