    Head for your laptop manufacturer's website...
    look for the support downloads section and download a driver set for your laptop.
    Install them as directed and let us know how you make out.

    Win7 is pretty good... but it doesn't have every driver for every machine built in.
    There are some you will need to manually install.

    As CommonTater has indicated go here
    Drivers & Downloads=
    select your operating system, Windows 7 64bit and
    you'll need the Intel Driver under the network section 825xx Gigabit Platform Lan Nework Device
    and for the other two try the chipset driver you may very well need both the Intel and the Ricoh.
