I'm installing windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on an Acer Aspire 5742z w/o the recovery partition or CD's, so the original drivers are gone, but I still do have Acer's Website. Every time I try to install the wireless card's drivers the computer hangs at approx. 70% into the installation. This happens both when I run the setup exe, and when I choose to browse to the driver manually. I've uninstalled the driver & went through this process multiple times. After rebooting, the driver appears installed in the device manager, but with errors. It's shown as "Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter" with an exclamation point next to it.

There are no other unknown or damaged drivers, even when hidden devices are revealed.
