Acer :: Being Prompted To Install Driver For "COPROCESSOR" After Clean Install
Aug 9, 2009
Doing a clean install of Vista and keep getting prompted to locate and install driver for "Coprocessor". Have looked in device manager (yellow mark) but I just don't know what it is. Windows says it can't locate software for it.
Don't know what I am looking for on Acers site under drivers, installed all other stuff OK, Realtek, NVidia etc. Could it be a modem driver. Properties in device manager give no clues, it's listed as "other devices" along with the webcam which I have to sort drivers out for too.
I have a dv5-1235dx that i wiped clean and installed Windows 7 Professional. My first round of updates took care of most drivers like scrolling and sound. My laptop has the touch sensitive button up top for volume, mute, play, pause etc.
The volume buttons work but the volume bar no longer displays on screen and it doesnt "click" as you change the volume.
I have the HP page for drivers [url] but dont know what i need. I installed HP quick launch buttons but that didnt do it.
Does anyone know which driver it is? Also which ones should i get and is there a specific way to install them or just run them?
I got my laptop but did not do a clean install. I just removed all the bloatware I could think of. Is there a guide to do just that though, get rid of all the stuff that shouldn't be there so that you essentially have a clean install without all the bloat or footprints of it?
i just reinstalled winxp sp3 on a sony s3xp, i don't have the vaio installation cd but i did a clean reinstall of windows xp and installed essential drivers but it was quite slow, eg seconds to load a directory, or long pauses during web browsing
now i've installed all the original drivers and utilities and am running without power saving but it's still sluggish, eg the mouse pointer jumps about the screen rather than moves continuously when the cpu is under any load at all
I got my XPS15 (32gb ssd + 1tb hdd) right before christmas and had been happy with it. I even managed to get Intel Rapid Storage running, since it did not work from the beginning for whatever reason.My hdd made funny sounds soon after, so last week happened what needed to happen - the hdd crashed.
No problem, dell in person of a service technician replaced the hdd and installed a clean win 8 (not the original dell package, just a plain one). This did not support Intel Rapid Storage, probably because bios was set to AHCI. I found out later, when the technician had left. Not any driver seemed to work.
So I decided to recover my old win 8 with my self made set of recovery dvds. But this did not work, win 8 just did not want to start after recovery.
I now try to install win 8 from the dvd the service guy brought, but at the beginning it asks me to provide the correct driver. I put the F6-driver for sata from intel onto a usb-stick, but setup does not accept that. I cannot proceed with installation...
I've already posted another thread about the issues I'm having with my Acer 5535 however I have a another question that I was meaning to ask about it. If I wanted to restore the laptop to it's factory settings, the laptop I had previously came with a Recovery DVD, this one did not.
How do I perform a clean install? I know there is some sort for recovery partition on the HD, but how do I start the process?
This is a brand new, just out of the box, laptop. Is it possible to do a clean install from the hidden partition?
But most important. I want to make a backup of the Out-of-the box state. Then I want to make another type of backup so that I can selectively uninstall items and selectively bring them back from the backup if I need them. How would I do that?
I want to get rid of: 1) All games 2) McAfee 3) MS Office Trial 4) MS Works 5) Welcome center - unless this si somehow needed. 6) Movie Maker 7) Windows Photo Gallery 8) Extras and Upgrades 9) Windows DVD maker 10) Windows Movie Maker 11) Live Messenger Download. 12) Windows Meeting Space 13) Windows Sidebar 14) Table PC
Guide: Clean installation of Windows 7 on Acer, heavily edited by moderators
This guide explains how to do a clean installation of Windows 7 on an Acer computer that's been licensed to used it. If your system originally came with Windows Vista, you need an Acer Upgrade Kit. If your system originally came with Windows 7, use the key on the bottom of your machine.
The described method will work for ANY edition (Starter/Home/Pro/Ultimate) and for ANY architecture (32/64-bit) and ANY language, but only the version you are licensed for; no free upgrades here.
Step 1: Verify eligibility for Windows 7. CONTENT REMOVED DUE TO PIRACY CONCERNS Either you are licensed for Windows 7 by having a key on the bottom of your machine, or you have an Acer Upgrade kit. If you have neither, then you are not licensed for it, regardless of what's in your BIOS.
Step 2: Back-up factory images and personal files. Since we will be reinstalling Windows you will lose all your files and ability to restore to factory condition, so it would be a wise thing to make back-ups. A. Back-up factory images. If you want to have restore DVDs then it should be a good time to create them now. You can do it via Acer eRecovery program. If you have a built-in or external DVD drive then simply burn them and if you do not then you can save DVD image to your hard drive. Follow these instructions. B. Back-up personal files. If you have files you would like to keep now it is time to save them to either a flash drive or an external hard drive.
Step 3: Preparing Windows 7 installation image. Simply use the content in this topic to download and prepare your Windows 7 DVD or USB key. This will also remove the version restriction so the burned DVD or prepped USB key can be used to install any version of Windows 7 - you'll still need the right license key, of course.
Step 4: Setting up Windows 7 installation media. See above..................................................
I just did a clean install of my Acer 5101AWLMI with TinyXp removing all partitions, now this has worked fine on all other computers I used it on. But the Acer Laptop comes up with the error message STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78a6528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000), after Windows XP loading screen. I never get to the login or desktop. I have read the [url], but it doesn't help, how am i supposed to get drivers from the manufacturer installed on the laptop when I can't get to the desktop? I have reinstalled and formated several times and even run Spinrite 6.5 to check for harddisk failes, but to no avail!
Is there any possibility to interact with ePower in Windows 7 clean installation? In original Vista that came wit notebook it had tray icon, but when I install this app in Win7 from provided archive (ePower_Acer_4.07.3008_Win7x86x64), there is no tray nor any launcheable app, even through there is epowertray.exe running in memory. An when I press ePower button (green battery with leaf), nothing actually happens, only indication is that icon is green lit and if I install launchmanager, there is visual indication on display too...
I have an Acer Travelmate 6460 with Windows XP on it. I want to format my harddisk and put a Vista Business on it (no OEM). With that format I mean complete one, including the PQService partition from Acer.
Basically I want to have an 'Acer clean' laptop in the end (I only want the drivers for the hardware, and the downloads to make the soft keys working).
Now first of all i can not delete the PQService partition (not in Windows, not in the Vista installation program after booting from dvd). That made me curious and searched the internet.
Now I've read that it is possible that after deleting the PQservice partition, you loose the MBR and can not boot anymore. I don't want to take that risk because I do not want to loose many time during working hours.
I'm a software developer, knows a fair bit of hardware but I really like some advice of some 'manual' of what to do to accomplish what I want. (If that is possible).
I just reinstalled my Acer Aspire 5930G (844G32BN) with Vista Home Premium. Everything looks fine except the wireless connection. My computer cannot find any wireless networks (although my other notebook finds all 3 around me). It looks like as if the notebooks WiFi signal would not work.
Could anyone tell me what exact drivers the original installation have? I tried the Intel ProSet/Wireless drivers now. The WiFi led flashes, but cannot find any networks.With the original installation I had no problem regarding the WiFi.
Friend recently purchased this new laptop, but it's a bit sluggish. i want to do a clean install, but of course there was no Windows Vista DVD provided. How do i create a copy of the Vista installed on this Acer laptop? Does Acer ERecovery spit out a Windows image or does it copy over all the bloat ware as well? Is it hidden in some folder like Lenovos?
I have sent an e-mail to Acer but, as I bought my laptop in Dixons (UK retail shop) they told me that I need to speak to the "Tech Guys". These "tech Guys" are.... well...
THICK as S*** and don't usually give you any help whatsoever. Their advice was something like... it is not our fault, contact Microsoft as they are the one who developed W7...?
Anyway, moving forward, my problem is that, since I installed W7 x64 (clean install) the volume throttle does not work. I am unsure what the driver for this function is. I have tried re-installing the Synaptics drive, the Realteck HD drive...
Has anyone done this on an Acer laptop? I recently bought a 5515 for my parents and after seeing all the bloatware that came on it I figured I'd do a clean OS install. I backed up the CD Key using the ABR utility and backed up all the drivers. I then started the new OS install and get all the way to "completing installation" and it sits there spinning for a good 20-30 mins before it freezes. I tried the 32 bit version first followed by the 64 bit and had no luck either try. I eventually reinstalled the factory settings using the recovery disc.
This afternoon I decided to do a clean install of windows 8.1 on my Acer Aspire v5-431P. Everything went well and it booted up as it should do. After completing the windows setup procedure, I went on to reinstall all the drivers. Everything was still fine. When I was downloading them from the Acer website I heard the sound a windows computer makes when a device is plugged in or out. The screen went off and on and the image was blurry and flickering. Like it's covered in water. I also see everything double. But very vague.
I tried to reboot the laptop, took out the battery, plugged it in and out of the power source etc. The problem occurs after the windows login screen. The acer bios logo and the windows startup logo are perfectly fine but after that it's cr*p. At this point I was certain the screen itself was perfectly fine so I tried testing is on my tv using and HDMI cable. Worked perfectly.
The last thing I tried was reinstalling windows but the same happened. After 5 minutes of usage the screen goes ham again.
I have looked everywhere and even found some SATA drivers that worked for other Acer SATA laptops, but not the 3050. I looked at other posts for the 3050 on this forum which helped me get other drivers, but not the SATA drivers.
I have had an aspire 5920g for about 18 months now and it was all working fine until I updated the graphic drivers, but the drivers stopped installing halfway through and now I can't install any graphic drivers.
I tried to install my original drivers and they won't install. The system keeps freezing and I think thats the problem.
I've tried making a recovery disc but erecovery won't recognize blank DVD's and acer 'support' are only too happy to grab you by your feet, turn you upside down and let all your money fall out so they can charge you for a reovery disc - absolutely ridiculous - instead of actually trying to help me.
And also for some reason a yellow triangle appeared next to the ACEYTS4Y IDE controller a week after I got it but up until now didn't seem to cause any problems.
I have a spare 500GB external drive sitting around. I have never really considered using Time Machine until recently.
For the backup images that they create, do you create an image of the entire hard drive? If so, does the program compress the backup?
I am looking to do a clean install of Mac OSX. When I do a restore of my old files, I'm only looking to restore docs, pics, music, etc.. I don't want to restore previously installed program or settings. Is it possible to do that with Time Machine?
While installing the Wireless Lan Broadcom 802.11 driver I get the error: Update.cpp 1185. The machine is an E1-532P and this is the only driver which has a problem. Broadcom.com does not provide support for end users.
Im running vista 64 home premium and want to use my upgrade discs to get to win 7.
If i want to delete the recovery partition when do i do it? Is the best process to back up my files and then do a recovery back to vistas original state when i first got the machine and them delete the recovery partition?
Then put in the win7 upgrade dvd? Can i merge the recovery partition with the main one in vista after to delete it?
