Re: updating Vista Drivers

Available driver-update information is often extremely sparse, and it can be difficult to be sure that you have found the right driver for your device. We strongly recommend that you consult your hardware manufacturer for advice on updating drivers; or employ a diagnostic tool such as VersionTracker Pro that can analyze the existing drivers on your system and match them to available upgrades.

Aspire L310 Desktop: can acer aspire L310 desktop work with win xp and ...

Yes. I am currently updating an Acer Aspire L310 (lunchbox format) desktop.

Many of the drivers are contained on the XP installation disk and will automatically be installed when you install XP.

Other Drivers:

Assuming your L310 has the same hardware (may not), you can use the following Hardware detail to locate the drivers by typing in the hardware model into a search engine like Bing.

NIC - Marvell Yukon 88e8056 PCI-e GB; this driver can be downloaded from On this website, just type in the model info and it will direct you to the driver download.

Wireless NIC - Broadcom 802.11g; download from

Display/motherboard chipset - Once you have installed XP and the NIC driver, go to and click on the "downloads/support" option. The website provides an autodetect utility that will identify your hardware and provide updated drivers.

Audio - go to Realtek website and select "downloads". Download/install the high definition audio driver for XP.

Once you are up and running with XP, run the Microsoft Windows Update utility and it will find updates for many of the essential drivers.

...hope this info helps

Coprocessor driver for windows 7


Try letting Windows update detect and install the coprocessor driver for you.
You may have to perform the Windows update a couple of times before the device is detected.

When you start windows update it will give you a list of software and drivers that are available, you will in the list that there are optional updates available. Check there to see if the coprocessor driver is there and install everything except for the language packs.

Hopefully this will resolve the problem for you.

Good luck.

Can I load drivers downloaded to a disc,and install on other pc

Yes, go to Acer site, locate your model for drivers. Download them into a folder on your other machine (the one with internet access). Then insert a USB stick and copy and paste the folder to the stick. Now just insert the stick in the Vista machine, drag the folder to your desktop and begin installing your drivers.

Here is a link to your drivers. Click on desktop / Aspire / M1640 then make sure to set the operating system to Vista Ultimate.

Hope this helps.

Problem with dirver vga for IBM Desktop with Windows Vista

Maybe it is no the driver. Try to adjust the resolution of your screen. Right click on your desktop > Properties > Settings tab, then adjust the resolution to 1024 x 768 then apply it. If you really need the driver, go to device manager and, look for Display Adapter, right click on the video card and click on Update Driver. Let it search online for the updated driver.

No universal serial controller on my acer t180

Hi there. You need to update/install your chipset drivers.
This link will give you the chipset drivers:

You should notice that this driver is for XP. It should still work, but there is currently no chipset support for Vista on your product. If the above drivers don't work, then you can download the BIOS update from here:

You will need to select your specific pc (Desktop, Aspire, Aspire T180), then click on the BIOS tab, download and install.

Hope that works

Have an acer aspire sa80, formatted hard drive, no missing : Multimedia Audio Controller Video Controller (VGA Compatible) USB Controller drivers. I use a dongle to access wireless internet, and as usb not...

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

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: 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.

Ive put xp on my acer aspire m1100 and i cant get it to notice my realtek onboard sound card

Guessing it would of come with Windows installed originally. Most companies like Acer, Advent etc install drivers automatically with windows rather than providing standard drivers for them.
If your sound card is listed here,{560ea9e5-de28-43c6-8220-3ebad33008b8}&CatID={a790afca-b65b-4935-bf80-a535887a8c5c} you'll be able to download the necessary driver. If not, you may have to visit Realtek's own website to get hold of the drivers. (Make sure you copy entire link as the last } seems to get left out).
It may also be possible to download the drivers via Windows Update (it's good for something sometimes!)

Acer Aspire T180 Missing Drivers

My problem was with the T180 was the VGA support under XP. Reinstalling the Chipset drivers fixed that - audio and ethernet still broken but I'm using a wireless adapter for networking and I have separate sound care for sound - but anyway the link is:

I downloaded and installed chipset for XP 32 and it worked fine - presume the same is true for the Home Edition drivers.

I did try the pdf index suggested by a previous poster but I found all the links to XP drivers were broken.
