Acer :: Driver - Mass Storage Controller Missing Driver
Have done a clean install of VISTA HP. Keep being prompted to install driver for "Mass storage controller". Device manager shows it with yellow exclamation mark. Windows cannot locate a driver. Looked on the Acer site but unsure what to install for this one.
Device manager just calls it "other device" Acer Aspire 9301awsmi.

Acer :: 5930G SM Bus Controller Driver
i recently installed WinXP on my Acer 5930G (went from vista). i managed to find all the drivers (including the ICH9M SATA ACHI-mode driver) except one called the SM Bus Controller which is showing up in device manager with a little yellow ! symbol. Does anyone know where I can find this driver? the Intel website and their chipset identifier tool seems to be quite useless. The chipset identifier can't identify anything except the I/O controller (82801MB ICH9M SATA AHCI-mode) which was installed from the '32-bit floppy configuration files'
Geforce 9600M GT
Intel 965 Express (i think)
does anyone know which SM Bus Controller driver i need for XP?

Acer :: Missing To Downgrade Vista To Xp Is The Sata Controller
The only thing Im missing to downgrade vista to xp is the sata controller I cant find it anywhere for the Extensa 4630Z.
I found Slipstream drivers but it was for downgrading a acer aspire laptop and they didnt work.
I checked intel's site for sata controller drivers they arent there.
When tried slipstream drivers I found filename called " iaahci.inf " I used nlite to intergrate them on cd im still getting a blue screen so they arent compatible.
Why doesnt acer's support site have these sata drivers?

Dell :: E6400 Missing Driver- 5880
I have just reinstalled my laptop with Vista for the 2nd time since I purchased it.
Today had an endless BSOD of 0x0000000A and nothing I could do would get rid of it.
Everything tested out OK.
Anyway, after a fresh install and installing all the drivers I am left over with a 5880 in the device manager.
I can't seem to get rid of it. The best I could come up with was BT driver. I have installed the 370 driver twice. It working fine so I don't think it is that.
Dell :: Bluetooth Driver And My Sigmatel Audio Driver Not Working XP
here's the problems:
1. The damn CPU whining? I know everyone has it. Dell said last time I called that they're working on some way to fix it. The new A09 Bios didn't seem to do anything for me, or anyone else apparently according to dell's support forum. What's up with that?
2. My laptop wobbles on the top right and bottom left corners. it only wobbles if I use my 6cell batt, and it doesn't wobble w/ the 9 Cell. So does that mean the 6cell's rubber feet thing on the top right corner isn't high enough? Can dell fix that?
3. The "increase volume" media button thing isn't as responsive as the other ones. i have to press really hard to get it to respond. all the other ones i just tap it lightly, and it works.
Here's some questions that I know Dell has no clue what to do with:
4. I'm currently using Vista Ultimate on this only because I couldn't get my bluetooth driver and my sigmatel audio driver to work properly on XP. since dell hasn't released a xp bluetooth driver, i used WIDCOMM 5.1 stack, and the bluetooth headset and stereo headset drivers would disable the sigmatel drivers. really annoying. cmd51229 says he's gotten it to work:..........................
Acer :: 5610 Ethernet Driver
I want to stop using my wireless connection on my laptop and plug an ethernet lead in.
But when I plug this lead in my laptop just stays connected to to my wireless network. I tried disabling the Wireless on my computer then putting the lead in but still it wont attempt to connect to the internet with the ethernet lead in. What driver do I need to download so it will recognize the lead is in the laptop and attempt to connect to the internet?
I have an ACER 5610/Z

Acer :: What's The Driver Update Policy
I have a new Aspire 8935G with Vista 32 preinstalled.
Take audio drivers for example.
Acer update site reports Realtek audio driver version 126.96.36.19947 for my system.
If I switch to Seven 32, it reports 188.8.131.5215.
If I look for Aspire 8940G, Vista 32 (same audio hardware as mine), I see 184.108.40.20618, and, finally, 8940G Seven 32 has 220.127.116.1130.
They are all different from official Realteak drivers: they are at version 2.39 and lacks a control panel element (from Realtek...) that is present in the Acer divers, the one with the desk picture and the speakers around the room.
First question is: does Acer ever update drivers for different system or they just offer the drivers that were present in the retailed system?
Second: how comes the Realtek drivers lack the control panel component?

My Acer 1810T has Windows 7 Home Premium x64 installed and it is using a Microsoft Webcam driver version 6.1.7600.16385 dated 6/21/2006.
On Acer's site, they list 3 Camera drivers for Windows 7 Home Premium x64:

Acer :: 5920G Graphics Driver
I am trying to play gears of war and need the forceware 163.44 update. This is getting extremely frustrating. When I try downloading them from the Nvidia website or anywhere else it wont install.
I've been browsing through the Acer website to try and find the forceware updates to no avail
where the hell do you download forceware updates for the 5920G or for acers in general?
Acer :: Hl-dt-st Bddvdrw Ct10n Driver
I have an Acer Aspire 8930g and have a HL-DT-ST BDDVDRW CT10N dvd drive. I ned to update the firmware to current as it is not recognising a lot of new dvd/cd discs nd the firmware i have is dated 2006.
I've been on the ACER support site, that has nothing for the cd/dvd drive.
Acer :: NVidia Driver Tweak
I did this because I want to play Blu-Ray films AND have a decent selection of 16:9 resolutions - The Nvidia ones (with the modded inf) cause Acer Arcade not to play (gives an error about incorrect driver installed) and the official Acer ones only give you 2 actual 16:9 resolutions. Bear in mind this is mainly for my gaming as not everything will run at 1920x1080 but I don't want to go as low as 1366x768 but it's fixed a wierd problem with my TV where the HDMI 720p output was bigger than the TV screen (which is 720p but doesnt have any over/underscan ability?).
****This should be regarded as a "hack" to the drivers and as such I take no responsibilty for anything that happens if you try this - I am providing the details in case others have the problems above........
Acer :: Int15.sys Driver Error
It appears that the int15.sys driver was deleted from my computer (running Windows Vista) and now the machine is unable to boot up, even in safe mode. The Acer support folks say my only option is to pay someone to pull the information off of my hard drive, reformat (or recover, as they say), and then move everything back over. This will cost me about $100 and when the computer was only $400 and new two months ago, I don't want to spend more money on this thing.
From what I understand the int.sys driver is used as part of their eRecovery program but is very similar to a spyware or adware file. Therefore, when I was running Webroot's Window Washer program it deleted the driver. It seems like this may be an Acer specific driver and is not on all machines. Does anyone have any other suggestions besides the option Acer game me above?
A couple of ideas I have but would need more help on include:
1) If someone could put this driver on a jump drive or CD, could I tell the computer through command prompts to find the driver?
2) Would a Vista operating system CD be of any help to repair the driver? The support person said that I cannot get an OS CD from Acer, so is there someplace else I could find something like this?
3) I can reset the OS back to factory defaults, so I think the driver is still on there but the master boot record is corrupted. I do not know how to find the drive or update the master boot record.

Acer :: 6935G 5.1 Realtek HD Driver And Low Sound
I've just done a clean install of Windows 7 64bit and installed the latest Realtek HD driver (2.42) from their site, selected 5.1 in the sound properties through Windows and Audio Manager but when I playback media the sound is still tinny and only 2.0.
I haven't installed anything else and let Windows find the other drivers for my 9600M GS etc
This is the second time I've installed the OS as facing the same problem before and thought it might have been a corrupt installation or something.
Acer :: Vista 64bit UpgradeIntel Driver
In the GUIDE [Clean Install Guide (works for 32-bit or 64-bit) there is said, that I need to download Intel Chipset Driver/INF Update Utility and Turbo Memory Driver from provided links, but in my manufacturer's page [Acer 8930G] I have Intel_AHCI_v126.96.36.1992 and Intel_Robson_1.6_v188.8.131.524.

Acer :: Sound Loss Despite Driver Update
I report on an acer Travelmate 4200 laptop with a 1.8Ghz CPU with 1Gb RAM running Vista Home Basic.
About a week ago discovered that no sound was coming from speakers. Device Manager check reveals problem with the Realtek High Definition Audio. D/L'ed the driver from the acer AU website (v.184.108.40.20634), installed it okay but still no sound.
Could this be a hardware issue or have I missed a step in the software configuration?
Acer :: 5930g AHCI Driver For WinXP
So I wanted to try out WinXP, to see the performance difference.
At first, the WinXP setup wasn't able to see the HDD. So I changed the SATA Controller Bios mode to IDE mode. (was AHCI for Vista).
I managed to install so have a dual booted system. However I can't use IDE mode for Vista. (must switch SATA bios each time).
Everything installed fine. Even got 3dMark06 increase of 150 points (not much lol). Oh and CrystalMark of 100K instead of 90K on Vista.
But I'd like to use AHCI mode for WinXP. Saw a link in a WinXP 5930g Guide, however that link was out of date.
The driver was called: "Intel(R) ICH9M M-E Family 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller - 2929 Driver".

Acer :: : Can't Install Driver Video Under Vista 32 Bit
I have just received an Acer 5935 and I have already formatted and reinstalled Vista 32 Ultimate SP2.
The laptop has two video cards: a nVidia GT130 1GB and an Intel GM4500.
I downloaded the latest nVidia WHQL notebook driver (186.03) for my graphic card but i can't install it.
The installation stops and I have the following message: "hardware not recognised".
I am obliged to use the older Acer driver and you know they never update it to the latest and most performant release.
Anyway, it's not because of the two graphic cards...
I have had the same problem with a Dell Studio 1555 which has an ATi HD4570 512MB.
I tried the latest modded Catalyst (6.6) and I was obliged to install Dell's driver... but I could install the same driver on another laptop (Dell Studio 1535) with a HD3450.
Acer :: 9301 Vista Graphics Driver
Currently using NVidia graphics version 220.127.116.1155 the only one listed on Acers site for the 9300 series running Vista.
While I was playing around with a clean install of Vista on a 9301 Microsoft updates installed (recommended/optional update) a new driver which turned out to be 18.104.22.16869
Anyone know anything about this version. It seemed to work really well, and had many features the earlier one doesn't. Is it a notebook driver ? I also couldn't find it anywhere to download.
Acer :: New Realtek Sound Driver For 6920g
if there's any new realtek drivers for the 6920g, Ive done multiple search's myself and came up with nothing
I ask because whilest playing games or just listening to music every so often (well pritty regulary actualy) the sound just becomes verry distorted and unplayable untill I restart the app/game. I have tryed to install the latest official realtek driver 2.06 (not acer's version), I now know this was'nt the smartest of moves on my part as the sound then became verry tinny witch i now know was because the normal realtek driver's dont account for the ''tuba'' in acers.
Acer :: Aspire 5920G And ATI Driver Update
I've got an Aspire 5920G with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 graphics card/chipset. Up until last week, I'd been running with whatever drivers had been installed when I originally purchased the laptop in October last year.
Vista's Windows Update told me of new drivers for the 3470 that had been released in January, so I promptly downloaded them, glad to have something a little more up-to-date, since the laptop is being used frequently as a lightweight gaming machine. The driver, according to Device Manager, is dated 15/01/2009, and is version number 8.580.0.0.
My problem now is that every time I boot the machine, an ATI warning appears reading the following:
"The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enable graphics adapter. Please update your ATI graphics driver, or enable your ATI adapter using the Displays Manager."..................
Acer :: Extensa 4420 Video Driver
I recently pruchased an Acer Extensa 4420 and converted from VISTA to XP. I am having problems with installing the video driver. I down loaded the video driver from ACER's web site but it will not install. I had to down load the wireless driver from Dell and I was wondering if there was a similar trick for the video driver.
Acer :: Extensa 5620 XP X64 Display Driver
I bought this laptop yesterday and formatted a Fedora x86-64 & Windows XP x64.
I could not find any drivers for the video card for Windows XP x64 or any version of linux. In fact, I couldn't find any drivers at all, not even x86.
All I know about the video card is there's a sticker that says "Up to 1279MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT HyperMemory".
I tried the HD 2400 series driver for xp x64 from ATI.com but when I try to install it, it says: "Setup was unable to find compnents that can be installed on your current hardware or software configuration. Please make sure you have the required hardware or software."
Acer :: 5920G Vista 64bit SP1 Driver
I will migrate to Vista Ultimate 64bit SP1 soon.
So I need drivers for my 5920G.
I've search around, and finally I found this link:
But, is that really a driver for Vista 64bit SP1? Or is it just for the old Vista 64bit? (not for Service Pack 1)? or it's all the same and won't have a problem if installed to 64bit SP1?
Does someone has another source to get the drivers?
Acer :: Extensa 4420-5817 Display Driver
I have wiped out Vista from this machine and installed XP Professional. All have been installed fine except Wireless and Display drivers. I got wireless driver from gateway and it worked great.
I have done every thing as outlined in different threads on this forum and all other resources including acer north america and europe sites to install display driver but i still keep on getting the "set up did not find a driver compatible with your hardware or operating system" error.
The display driver specified on the sticker is 896 MB ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 Hyper Memory.
I am able to install the "SMBUS v.5.10.1000.6" from acer europe site without any problem.
I have upgraded the BIOS also to v1.18 from v1.17.
All the rest of the drivers i am able to install from the Vista Application and Driver back up DVD including the webcam that i created before taking out vista.
This machine is AMD Athelon 64X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-57.
