I need drivers cd for m1641


http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

To access your drivers select

Desktop

Aspire

Aspire M1640

All content drivers are listed for download, if you cannot access the internet on this PC, I recommend getting on another PC with internet access. Download the drivers and burn them to a CD or flash drive, then transfer and install on the Acer Aspire M1641-U1521A.


Good Luck,
Rodrick

First thing to try, is to do a system restore. You can go back to an earlier time. Pick the lastest time right before you installed the updates. System restore should be found in the Control Panel.

Go to Control Panel >
Accessibility Options and turn off the Filter Keys option. Also click the
Settings button for it and disable the shortcut (by default, holding down
the right Shift key for 8 seconds turns it on). You should probably disable
the other two accessibility options, too, to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Hi,
You need drivers for your system.
All the official acer drivers for your system are here :-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/power_s260.html#driver

As listed at the site:-

Realtek Audio Driver is your Multimedia Audio Controller.
NVIDIA VGA Driver should be your Video Controller, if that don't work try SIS VGA Driver.

SiS 661 chipset driver should fix your usb problem, if it dosn't update windows to SP2.
Get that from here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/. Then try again with SiS 661 Chipset Driver.

You should also install the rest of the drivers for your aspire sa80.

You said you had no access to internet so burn the drivers using a friends computer (one with internet) and install from the disc and you should be fine.

Need assistance starting up my acer aspire computer m1641


Timegatewood,

That would depend on how you would like to get the internet connection to your ACER.

Option 1

Ethernet line
Benefits: Faster connection, easier setup, more secure
Cons: Wires must be physically routed requiring drilling through walls or passing through vent openings.

What you'll need:
Router
Cat 5 ethernet cable from router to ACER and to your HOST PC
Ethernet network interface cards (NIC) in both PC's
any length of cable exceeding 100-150 feet will likely need a network Hub to boost signal strength

Option 2
Wireless
Benefits: Wiless acces to host PC(no drilling through walls etc.) can connect multiple PC's by simply adding a wirless card to new PC
Cons: prone to interference, less secure, setting up security protocols can be cumbersome

What you'll need:
Wireless Router/Access Point(AP)
Wirless adapter for remote PC (ACER)
Someone who is knowledgable about Wireless security to setup the firewall settings in the router.

OK so now that you have the options you can decide which is best for you.

Ethernet : If your willing to drill holes or pass through vents this will give you a faster connection
Wireless: This makes for a no mess/no fuss connection but at the expense of security and potential interference from cordless phones etc..

If you need help setting up your Network connection after you decide which you'd like please feel free to ask.

Thanks
Dave

I bought an Acer notebook (Aspire 9920) back in December. My ISP manual says that the 'Wireless Network Key' should be on the base of the notebook on a coloured label. This doesn't appear to be the case....


A wireless network key is used to join to a wireless network. Wireless networks are created by routers and/or access points. In order to obtain the key so you can log onto the network, you must have access to the router's settings or be given the key by someone who can access the router. To access the router, you type in it's IP address into your internet browser. If it is password protected, you will need that as well. Once in the router settings, you can set many configuration options, including the wireless network password or passphrase and encryption type.

Again, if you are joining to a wireless network, the KEY is determined by the router, not the laptop. This is how multiple wireless devices are allowed onto the same network: they all use the same key.
