Base system device not working after Win7

Alienware M17

Specs: Windows 7, 2GB
I recently upgraded my Alienware M17 laptop to Windows 7 64-bit and I ran all the appropriate updates and drivers necessary. However, after installing all available drivers from Alienware's site, I still get 2 devices that are still failing. Both of the devices are named Base system device and their locations are labeled:

1) PCI bus 14, device 7, function 3
2) PCI bus 14, device 7, function 2

I thought that I could try getting the drivers from Dell, but this should only be required for computers bought AFTER 2009. Mine was not, but I gave it a try and discovered that the dell downloader does not work...

Don't use the Dell Downloader then.
Just download the drivers manually using the standard web-browser downloader.
