Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
i have changed my OS from vista to xp and can not found the drivers for SOUND and LAN if somebody can help me
So where have you looked, or where are you looking? What steps did you take to install the xp program? Did you completely remove everything off of the Hard Drive?.
Depending on how the computer was originally shipped. Whether the operating system and applications were on a set of disks or stored on a secure partitioned section of the hard drive, usually a drive 'C' which would be found in My Computer via the Start Menu. If the latter ( stored on Hard Drive ) was the case, I'm not sure if they could have been deleted/removed even though you may have cleaned the rest of the hard drive. Hopefully either they are still there or you have a set of back-up recovery disks that came with the PC or that you created/made. In any case, in those files are where you would find the Application Recovery program which would contain the necessary drivers your seeking for the LAN and sound/audio devices that are installed on the computer in question.
Try this first and if that doesn't work go to the next choice down.
If it will function and files weren't deleted. Open Start Menu> right click MY COMPUTER for the drop down menu> click/open PROPERTIES> click/open the HARDWARE tab> click/open the DEVICE MANAGER If all of this is there, there will be a list of all of your devices. Locate the said devices and right click and the drop down menu should have the option to update the drivers. Choose whichever options fit. .
If the above doesn't work then:
Open START MENU> open ALL PROGRAMS > open HELP & TOOLS> open APPLICATION RECOVERY. The drivers for the devices installed on the computer are going to be in the program that came with the computer.
If neither of those above work go to the computer manufacturers website, update drivers, search for your computer model or the name of the devices if you know what they are, i.e., brand and model number.
