Booting Into Safe Mode on Windows 8

SOURCE: Need Drivers

Here's the URL for downloading Acer drivers. The audio drivers for XP are down near the bottom. Probably the first Realtek one will be what you want.

SOURCE: Bios update failed *flash*

You are in deep trouble

A problem with refreshing the Bios is that you can corrupt the old one and then the new one does not load leaving you stuck in limbo land

I would contact Acer support and hope that they offer a pre-programmed Bios chip to replace your corrupt one.

SOURCE: coprocessor driver for windows 7

Hi,

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.
