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.

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. Thanks,

Got the same model. Had the same problem.

Remove all but one.
Swap out memory for different memory.

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.
