Acer Aspire M100 desktop computer device driver not installed

I have an Acer Aspire M1100 desktop pc bought 2 weeks ago from Currys
It seemed very slow and so I did a system diagnostic report. On this it warned me that Symptom - 'Device drivers are not installed'
Cause A driver has not been installed for this device preventing it
from working properly.
Details The device driver for AR5523 has not been installed. The
device will not be available until the correct device driver
is installed
Resolution 1. Try installing the drivers using Windows Update.
This didn't work- said it could not find driver
2. Install the drivers that are on the installation media
that came with the device.
As I don't know which device it is I could not do this
3. Check with the manufacturer for an updated driver.
Again I do not know what the driver is.
I am a new computer user and no relatively little about computers - and so don't know if this is serious or not.
can anyone help (in simple terms) please. Thank you.

Acer aspire m1100 desktop getting a no signal on monitor, how do I get my pc to open


My Acer Aspire M1100 would not boot and had no signal to the monitor. I thought the video card or motherboard had gone bad. I tinkered with it for over 2 years (yes I'm hardheaded) and finally realized the processor had worked itself loose. Reseated the processor and it works fine again. Hope this helps someone.

Ello. I wanted to know if there is a BIOS update for the Aspire M1100 because my BIOS dated 23/02/2008 which references are Motherboard SMBios version 2.5 Acer F690GVM Bios: Phoenix Technologies,...


The AHCI can be enabled from using the correct driver but you should have enabled it PRIOR to the OS install

Acer did not always do this but often relied on compatibility mode

The speed increase is often not that much.

The BIOS on that board can be updated but you may find that AHCI still does not work as you expect.

I have an Acer Aspire M1100 Desktop. I purchased it about 2 years ago. Unfortunately it did not come with a recovery disk so that i may set the computer back to factory (out of the box) settings. I was...


Unfortunately Acer no longer has recovery media available for this model Aspire. However they still have the drivers available for download so, the easiest way to get this machine as close to it's original condition as possible is as follows;

First and formost: Make backup copies of all file, pictures, music, videos, etc. that you need to keep.

Next: Download the drivers for this system by going to www..acer.com. Once you're there, select USA and click on the Service & Support Tab and click on the driver download link.

Then, make the selections for you computer i.e.; desktop, aspire, m1100, and windows operating system.

Now download all of the drivers you need for your computer and put all of these drivers on a cd, dvd, or flashdrive for later use.

Re-install Windows and allow the installation process to re-format the hard drive during the installation.

Finally, re-install any programs and data that you have and install the drivers.

Take your time and it should all fall into place. It should all take you a good half a day or less. Good Luck!

How to upgrade acer aspire m1100 ram


It is actually pretty simple, just remove either screws or fasteners holding the case on. On that model it may even just be the side panel, which would be 2 screws/fasteners. Here is a video that explains the process. http://videos.howstuffworks.com/howstuffworks/26-how-to-install-ram-to-a-desktop-computer-video.htm Thanks,

Driver missing


I think the virus was not yet deleted in your system and the virus are blocking some of the drivers in your computer, format your computer in normal way. And try re-installing it.
