Jiggs734,
Most any USRobotics/3COM USB modem should work with your Acer LE 1600. I would suggest going with USR/3COM as opposed to other modems because they are one of the most well respected modems on the market. Also, drivers are updated from time to time, and support is available on many forums.

I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution offered. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,
Char1ieJ

IS MY COMPUTER COMPATABLE WITH WINDOWS 7


The specifications of your computer are top of the line and can handle different applications and soft ware. Based on the hardware specs you've posted this should support Windows 7. But keep in mind that some of your hardware components may need be compatible w/ Windows 7 ( like bluetooth, camera, lan adapter, or wlan). In other words they don't have software driver that is compatible w/ Windows 7.
Also, based on Acer's support site: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireM5100/AspireM5100sp2.shtml
This are the only Operating Systems that this model supports: Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista™ Home Premium
Windows Vista™ Home Basic

Acer Aspire T180 is missing Video Controller Driver


Find out what type of Nvidia graphics card it is, then goto the nvidia site and download the installer from them. The installer usually supports multiple families/models of cards. But yes, you need to download the installer for Win XP pro.
You can do it manually, or have it automatically scan for the hardware and download the correct driver automatically.

Here's a link to the automatic --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us

I tried to upgrade my acer t180 to windows 7 from vista basic, no i"m having dmi problems... seems like it's stuck... help please


Hello kelajo34,

There might be a Desktop Management Interface (DMI) compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the Acer T180 Vista Basic DMI. The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the Acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer T180 is NOT in this list !):
http://www.acer.com/windows7upgrade/eligible.html

Also, It might be a good idea to run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor before upgrading from vista basic to Windows 7 on the Acer T180. The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor download link is at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1b544e90-7659-4bd9-9e51-2497c146af15&displaylang=en

Possible to install Windows XP on an Acer 5532?


Yes you could but Acer won't support it. You either have Vista or 7 in it. If Vista, update to 7 and be done with it.
If you want XP, first copy a full image of your present OS on a external drive using a program like Acronis True Image Home. Then reformat your hard drive when doing an XP install. Do you have a full version XP install disk?

Drivers for M5641


There is no difference whatsoever between drivers for Vista Home, Vista Ultimate or, indeed, any version of Vista. They are all the same Operating System just with bits enabled or disabled accordingly.

Please can you clarify exactly which OS you have. Is it 32 bit or 64 bit? You will almost certainly have the 32-bit version and need to go to the appropriate page. 64-bit drivers will not work with 32-bit Os's and vice versa.

Just in case, here is the link for the drivers... yoiu just need to choose the exact OS remembering the 32 bit option (assuming you do have a 32-bit OS)

How to put xp home edition on an acer aspire 17" laptop which currently has vista home basic on


First and foremost before you try to downgrade your OS from Vista to XP make sure that you can find a working device driver for your laptop, if you check your manufacturer's website(Acer) see if they have XP drivers for your device because I had some clients that are having problem trying to make some of their device work(built in webcam, ethernet, wi-fi, sound) when they downgraded to XP for faster processing.

I'm trying to installing my software ( resume maker edition career) the system is let me know this software is not compatible for window vista. can you help me let me know what kind of program I need to...


Hello

Microsoft had change backward compatability when it come to produce vista for end user, so most of the softwares developed for the earlier softwares did not run on windows vista, although i don't know which type of vista you are using, but vista home basic support some of the obselete softwares. Why not try to use vista home basic and see wheather you will succeed. Or I will say you download the softwares from the developers site which is compatible for vista OS.

Enjoy.
