After windows 7 arrived, many acer laptop user including me try the beta version and now there are several version available. So, the question after the installation of windows 7 is the driver.
HOW TO GET ALL DRIVERS FOR MY ACER (WINDOWS 7)?
Before we do some installation, please run automatic updates and see if there are any updates for your driver.
to check your driver installed or not, just simply click start, on the box type DEVMGMT.MSC and press enter, you should see a windows open with list of your devices. If you see any yellow mark,then you need to find driver for it.
1. Ok first of all the new model shouldn't worry about it because Acer provide the drivers (if you don't have ot or dont find it just leave your comment, ill list it for you) - it all should be listed in acer support page.
2. for bit older model - your vista driver may work. If not try right click on the installer and select properties, then select compatibilities and select windows vista, the click apply. After that right click again and select run as administrator.
3. Find the drivers on the components manufacture site. Every model has it own manufacture, sch as audio eg: Realtek . So if acer just provide a vista audio driver for realtek. just simply go to realtek site and download the latest driver for windows 7.
4. For very old model - maybe quite difficult for you to find several driver. and some of you can't event enable aero. Ok for this one i can assist you, just give me your model and your hardware ID.
P/s: if you like to do some experiment, why not try download driver from other model but with same manuufactre component, and same model, say atheros AR5xxxx, download and test, but please if you new to hardware and driver, please don't try this experiment on your laptop. cheers
