Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I get the found new hardware wizard keeps asking to install new hardware. It asks me if I want to install from a CD or the internet. I don't have a CD so I said yes to internet. The process begin to find the hardware then tells me that it couldn't be found. The item it is trying to find is called: Video Controller.
Do I need this and if so, is it something that I need to purchase and intall by opening the back of the Laptop and what does it do exactly?
Fist of all if it is saying that it is trying to install the video controller and u need to check the very first thing is that u the display of ur computer is fine or not and if it is fine then dont worry about this popup and then u need to right click on my computer and then click on manage and then device manger and then click on device maanger and then check for the video controller option and check it out if there is any red x or is there any yellow exclamation mark on it and if it is click on top of the page that says install or something like that it says scan for hardware changes and then it sould be ok and then restart ur computer,and now the computer should be ok u will not get any popup or what u can do is u can do the msocnfig,click start>run>type msconfig>click services>click hide all microsoft>click start up>click on disable all>click apply>click close.....restart the computer and it will be ok.....good luck try it out....
