There is no "Linux 7.0".  You must be referring to a distribution version

(Especially with the "My version is N+1" games.)

That means that the driver didn't recognize the device.

You have new hardware, with a new ID, and an old driver version.

Get an updated driver.
Presumably you purchased your distribution with installation support -- they

[[ I'm guessing that they won't be able to help, and will just point you to
