I am running Windows 7 and purchased two of the Bluno Mega 1280s both are having the exact same problem. 

The Bluno shows up in windows as "! Unknown device"
When I try to install the "Special Driver" through
Going to Device Manager
Right clicking "!Unknown Device"
Clicking on "Update Device Driver"
Selecting "Browse my computer for driver"
Navigating to my "Bluno mega 1280 special driver" folder (Where the Arduino MEGA 1280 R3.inf is located)
then press "Ok"
then press "Next"

I get the error
"Windows was unable to install your
Windows could not find driver software for your device."

I can however run AT+ commands on the Bluno Mega
I have restored it to default. None of the link lights are on, only the bright Red light.

I have attempted to manually install the drivers in "Legacy Mode". I pick the Driver and windows says it has found the driver but has experienced an error while installing it.

When I go into the Arduino IDE 1.6.5 and under tools select"
Board: "Arduino Mega or Mega 2560"
Processor: "ATMega1280"
Port:COM8 "Arduino (Uno)" <---This does not change

and try to upload a sketch, I get these errors

Sketch uses 2,704 bytes (2%) of program storage space. Maximum is 126,976 bytes.
Global variables use 200 bytes (2%) of dynamic memory, leaving 7,992 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 8,192 bytes.

I assume the driver isnt working correctly when I manually install them.
Are any new windows drivers available for the bluno?
Can anyone help me with this problem?

How do you load code into the 1280? Looks to me like a Programmer needs to connect to the ICSP header and File:Upload Using Programmer is needed. PE0/PE1 are the Serial port for the normal bootloader and there is no USB/Serial adapter connected to them.
Ok, I see the USB connector, connects to IC4, Rx/Tx come out, go thru 4.7K resistors, then to PE0/PE1.

Sounds like you have a driver problem with CC2540. Fix that, get the loopback test working, then you can proceed with downloading.

Thanks! I kinda figured I had a problem with drivers.
Any suggestions on how to resolve it?

Not familiar with that chip.
Try google?

I looked at the driver .inf file, and it seems that it is one of the "usual" arduino types that merely associates a specific vendor/product with the existing windows CDC/ACM driver (ie, there's a .INF file, but no actual driver.)
However, the file doesn't mention any OS newer than "Vista", so I'm not sure what would be needed on your W7 system.
