Question about Acer Aspire 5630 Notebook

1 Answer

Xp Hi, i bought the 5630 with vista on it. I didnt like it so put XP Pro on it instead. I got the XP drivers from the acer site . My problem is that the GeForce Go 7300 driver is version 86.02. Apparently according to nvidia there is a more up to date driver called 162 (i think). I downloaded this driver but when i try to install it , i get a message about no suitable hardware found. Can anyone help please?

Re: xp

The driver you have downloaded may only support windows Vista. This may be your case. As one technical expert says that all driver versions above 100 are made for vista. So download some lesser versions.

Installation of drivers

yes surin,
What you need that the driver version must support windows xp.
If you don't have driver for windows xp, you can download it free from you manufacturer's site i.e. from Acer.
Goto that site select your model and OS and make downloads.

If any problem, just ask me.

No sound

This Happened After An Update That said You needed The Update And It was Incompatible With You hardware. Go To Device manager And Roll back The Audio Driver To The Driver before he Most Current. And manually Change it back To The Other Driver. Hopefully This will Solve Your Problem. That has Happened to me on Many Different Computers unning Vista, XP Pro And XP Pro 64. It Is Most Likey Conextent.

If Acer does not let you download anything for XP, then you are out of luck.
