Here is the list of 20 manufacturers:-

1. ASUS Drivers (Motherboards)*Download*

ASUS has made available Windows 7 drivers for many of their motherboard lines including those based on AMD, Intel Socket 775, Intel Socket 1366, and more. I did a quick spot check on several of ASUS’s motherboards and all of them showed both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 drivers. ASUS also manufactures servers, workstations, notebooks, and other computer peripherals but they are most known for their motherboards. You can look for Windows 7 drivers for your non-motherboard ASUS product on their website.

2. Acer Drivers (Desktops and Notebooks)*Download*

Windows 7 drivers available for Acer desktops or notebooks can be downloaded via Acer’s Service and Support site. Acer provides many custom Windows 7 drivers for their PCs and laptops but much of the hardware will be installed using the default drivers in Windows 7.

3. Compaq Drivers (Desktops and Laptops)*Download*

If any Windows 7 drivers are available for Compaq computers, they can be downloaded via HP’s standard support site. Compaq is now part of HP. Compaq’s newer computers typically come with Windows 7 installed and of course have Windows 7 drivers available. HP’s site may have Windows 7 drivers listed for older Compaq computers as well.

4. ATI Radeon Driver (Video)*Download*

This Windows 7 driver from AMD/ATI contains the entire Catalyst suite including the ATI Radeon display driver, ATI WDM driver, and the Catalyst Control Center. This Windows 7 driver is compatible with ATI Radeon HD series GPUs.

5. BIOSTAR Drivers (Motherboards)*Download*

BIOSTAR lists many of their motherboard lines as passing WHQL testing with Microsoft, including those based on socket 1366, 1156, 775, AM3, and AM2+ designs.

6. Creative Sound Blaster Drivers (Audio)*Download*

Creative has made available Windows 7 drivers for many of their popular Sound Blaster products including their X-Fi, Sound Blaster Live, Audigy, and more. Some Windows 7 drivers by Creative may be in beta. Please be aware that beta drivers may not always work properly and you should update as soon as final versions become available.

7. Dell Drivers (Desktops and Laptops)*Download*

Windows 7 drivers for Dell desktop and laptop computers can be downloaded via Dell’s standard support site. Dell also keeps an updated list of their computer systems that they have successfully testedwith Windows 7.

8. eMachines Drivers (Desktops and Notebooks)*Download*

Any available Windows 7 drivers for eMachines desktop or notebook computers can be downloaded via eMachines’ support site.

9. Gateway Drivers (Desktops and Notebooks)*Download*

Windows 7 drivers for Gateway desktops and notebooks will be available via Gateway’s support site. Gateway doesn’t seem to have any Windows 7 drivers available at this time. I also did not find any list of Gateway computers that were otherwise compatiblewith Windows 7 but chances are that the more recent models are.
