The Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit drivers for the Navation ublox are available on Windows update. Ah, you have one of the new Qosmio line F55? A GPS built in? Have you tried it on another USB port or better yet another machine? I am using the Windows 7 driver off u-Blox website as the driver. When inserted a USB device has to power up from the bus, initialize and identify itself to Windows. Why don’t you try it on another computer to be sure then.
