Acer c300 tablet color went nuts after vid driver update
Used driver detective, ya, I know, and updated the intel vid drivers for my Acer Tablet. After that, my screen is pixelated, lots of small pink pixels, almost looks like a photograph that has been dragged face down on cement. :D
Looked everywhere, Acer us useless as t's on b's, have tried every trick my IT friends can think of... Anyone here got a clue?

Re: Acer c300 tablet color went nuts after vid driver...
Hi I am Vortash .. first thing to do is get rid of your old driver and the update .. start the computer up in safe mode . you do this by hitting f8 just after the bios flash screen or if you dont have that .. just as it is about to start windows .. go to add and remove programs remove the driver if it is listed .. then go to add and remove hardware ( both these are in control panel ) and click on Display adapter and uninstall them then close all the programs and rebboot it will search it'self for drivers and at first probably load generic PCI drivers dont worry let it do that .. you can change it after .. when its rebbooted install the correct drivers and reebbot again the computer should then re-install your graphics .. hope this helps Regards Vortash

I suppose you want to update to a higher Android version. I advise against it if you are a novice. First, you have to find an updated version of the ROM for your tablet specifically. Then, you will have to use an appropriate software to flash the ROM into your tablet. There is always a danger of bricking your tablet when flashing.
Hi Wilson. Yes, it is possible. First install all given drivers from Windows Update. This will make everything functional except for sound and graphics.
1. To get sound working, go to Fujitsu Driver Download, select "Sound" driver from ST5032D page and install (it's for WinXP but works perfectly)
2. Getting the Intel Chipset 915GM driver is tricky, there are no updates or support for Windows 7. However, some good-guy has succeed in hacking last WinXP driver to fit Win7 requirements. Download it from --> http://www.megaupload.com/?d=IUY33KQA. Uncompress, run install.bat and voilà!
3. Buttons and functions. Download and install drivers from ST5112 (button driver, button utilities, hotkey driver, hotkey utilities) as stated from another post in FixYa.
The driver's can be found on Acers website Acer Drivers. Scroll to the bottom to: "Or select my product from a list:" Select: Notebook, TravelMate, TravelMate C300. Acer only supports Windows XP on this model according to the driver list. If your running 7, you might have to install the driver through a Windows update.
You dont have the correct drivers installed for the pen and button functions.. I need a email address to send them to... Mine is: email@example.com or call me...740-404-6370 I have the same tablet and it took me 3 months to round up all the CORRECT drivers and get everything working.... BTW I could use a copy of the restore disk for mine if you could...
This is *NOT* a question about an ACER Travelmate LCD display.
The "short" answer is "you cannot", without the proper tools,
namely the tools to physically remove the BIOS chip from the motherboard, and a 'PROM-burner' device, to extract the contents
of the BIOS (about 2Mbits of data), update a few bits, and then
to "program" the updated data back onto the PROM (Programmablel Read Only Memory) chip, and then reinstall the BIOS chip back into your motherboard.
Good luck! Always "experiment" with a "test" motherboard, rather than first goofing-up your "production" motherboard.
i had the same problem, i had to install the updates on the "drivers and applications restore cd". however that didnt work. so i had to download the 1.030 driver from the fujitsu web site. this worked. but when i tried to calibrate the tablet i was not able to get it aligned.
there used to be 2 different programs for updating the tablet, but now i cannot find the other one.
I?ve had a couple of Dells laptops do this and without fail the cause was flaky touchpad/mouse drivers. I would suggest going to the Acer website downloading the latest drivers for your mouse. If that fails try removing the driver and running with the Windows default drivers, that what I?ve been doing successfully on my company laptops for several years now.
Acer driver download page, the web site is really slow so be prepared for a long wait.
The closest match was the C300 so I?m assuming these are generic drivers for the 300 series. Use the pull down menus and select the following:
-Select Product Line = Notebook
-To the right of that select TravelMate C300 (way at the bottom)
-Make sure English is selected and click on the search button. Once the drivers page opens go down towards the bottom and load for TM C300 touchpad drivers
