I downloaded the driver from the official page and saved to a USB drive; but when I plug the drive into my netbook it just flashes a black screen and is gone! I don't think I am getting the entire driver. Can you help please?
You are trying to install a driver that is not supported by your operating system. Please visit the driver download page for your netbook and download the driver for Windows 7 and for your architecture (32 or 64 bit). You can find the OS version in the Properties windows when you right click on Computer.
